The progressive new home for adult entertainment online

The Internet is home to a wealth of content, suitable for a wide range of ages and values. The adult entertainment industry has, and always will, account for a large amount of this content and while it is enjoyed by some, it is not suitable, or of interest, to all internet users. Regardless of your views on adult content, it’s here to stay, so let’s be adult about it.

Increasingly, internet users are coming into contact with content that they do not wish to see and in turn, others finding it hard to locate exactly what they are looking for, due to a decrease in availability for precise and clear domain names.

The creation of .XXX will create a clearly signposted place where adult entertainment can be accessed and allow surfers to have a clear idea of the nature of the site before they click, rather than after.

.XXX isn’t just a helpful distinction. It’s the progressive new home for adult entertainment online.

As authorized registrar for the .XXX, EuroDNS is thrilled by the launch of this new and much talked about extension.

The .XXX registration timeline

The launch process will be done in specific phases based on the qualifications of both members and non-members of the Adult Sponsored Community.

September 7, 2011 marks the launch of the Sunrise period. This phase will run until October 28th, 2011 and is separated into Sunrise A (Opt-in) and Sunrise B (Opt-out).

• Sunrise A (Opt-in) is dedicated to members of the adult Sponsored Community with either verifiable trademark rights or owners of exact matching domains in other TLDs which is also known as “Grandfathering”.

• Sunrise B (Opt-out) – September 7, 2011 to October 28, 2011 – was created especially for non-adult Intellectual Property holders who are non-members of the adult Sponsored Community with verifiable trademark rights so they can block their domains in the .XXX space.

The Landrush period is scheduled from November 8, 2011 to November 25, 2011 while General Availability will kick of on December 6, 2011.

The Sponsored Community

The Sponsored Community consists of individuals, business, entities, and organizations that fit one of the following descriptions:

• Provide Online Adult Entertainment intended for consenting adults (“Providers”) (e.g. adult webmasters, performers, studios, store owners, club operators);

• Represent Providers (“Representatives”) (e.g. lawyers, agents, advisors, accountants, affiliates); or

• Provide products or services to Providers and Representatives (“Service Providers”) (e.g. adult domainers, manufacturers, delivery companies, caterers, distribution companies, merchant account services, make up artists, stylists, hosting services).

.XXX registration fees

EuroDNS will charge its customers €74 annual registration fee (ex. VAT) for each .XXX domain name registered unless such domain name is allocated during the Sunrise B period (Opt-out), in which case EuroDNS will solely charge you with a €195 fee (ex. VAT) for a 10 years period.

In addition to the €74 annual registration fee, the following fees apply:

• “Adult Trademark” Sunrise A (Opt-in): €98 validation fee, on top of the annual fee (ex. VAT)
• “Adult Domain” Sunrise A (Grandfather): €55 validation fee, on top of the annual fee (ex. VAT)
• “Landrush” Period, open to anyone but with potential auction: €55 on top of the annual fee (ex. VAT)

No annual registration fee is added to the “Blocking” Sunrise B (Opt-out) which has a flat validation fee of €195 (ex. VAT) including a 10 years /blocking period.

    Lol. XXX is so limited. I have found it very hard to flip adult domain names. They really won’t have much value apart from a select few.
    You dont know anything about .CO do you? Well, I guess we have to have sheeple. If we didn’t it would be a boring world.
    PS – I have sold 8 of my .CO already, total profit is at $32,000 and I still have my good ones held back. I got a $5000 offer on being.co. Knocked it back. Most of my portfolio iare heavily monetizable one worders.
