Apparently porn sites could have xxx extentions

DaShi summary:

Sex sites get dedicated net home

The .xxx domain is for porn sites
Pornographic websites are about to get their own online home.

A proposal to create net domains ending .xxx has been approved by the body that oversees the net's addressing system.

Sexually explicit sites will be encouraged to move to the new domains to make it easier for people to filter and avoid them.

The .xxx approval reverses earlier decisions to block it over fears that it would be ineffective and controversial.

interesting idea, but imagine you own fuck.com, you might buy fuck.xxx as well but you'e not going to give up fuck.com, so really what difference has it made?

Yeah, but you could register king_ghidra.xxx wouldn't that be good?

Actually. Let me rethink that.

.com will still be the most desireable.

Could. There is no requirement.

It will just result in twice the number of domains which redirect to porn sites.

I wonder if it would be possible to register porn.xxx before the owners of porn.com, and then sell it back to them.
