Top level adult domain goes public on December 6
Easyspace, one of the UK’s largest web hosting companies, is urging customers to ‘get in quick’ if they want to secure the .XXX top level domain before it goes on general sale a week from today.
The General Availability phase for the new adult top level domain starts on December 6 2011. The .XXX TLD will be allocated to applicants on a first-come first-serve basis.
Sarah Haran, managing director of Easyspace, said: “This is the last but probably the busiest phase of the .XXX launch where the remaining .XXX domain names can be purchased instantly, so I’d urge people to pre-register in the next seven days if they haven’t already done so. Once the registry confirms it, you will be the legal owner of the domain you’ve requested so if you don’t get in quick you could end up disappointed.”
The General Availability phase also allows all members of the adult sponsored community to apply without pre-existing rights or qualifications unlike in the previous launch periods, however they will be subject to a verification process. Non-members of the adult sponsored community will be able to apply for ‘non-resolving’ .XXX domain names.
General Availability .XXX TLDs are available from Easyspace from £79.99 (includes £20 processing fee).
Easyspace is a subsidiary of iomart Group plc which was named Scottish Digital IT Company of the Year 2011 and is ranked as one of the top 25 cloud services providers in the world by Talkin’ Cloud 50.
