Now Accepting Sunrise B Applications. General Pre-Registration Coming Soon.
Eleven years after it was first proposed, the .XXX sTLD (sponsored Top Level Domain) is set to launch in September 2011. Webnames is participating in Sunrise B and General Registration to help facilitate the protection of trademarks, brands and primary domains in other extensions.
What is .XXX?
.XXX (commonly called “dot triple-X”) is a sponsored, specialized top-level domain (sTLD) intended for use by Adult Entertainment Industry on the Internet. .XXX was designed to facilitate online responsibility and best practices for the global online Adult Entertainment Industry. The registry is operated by ICM and the sponsoring organization for .XXX is the International Foundation for Online Responsibility (IFFOR). [Read more]
Trademark owners, as well as the owners of non-trademarked names and brands should act soon to protect their assets and prevent the registration of their names by other parties.
Acting early is important!
Pre-Registration orders for .XXX domains are
submitted to the registry in the
order they are received. The earlier you pre-register the .XXX domains, the better your chances of success.
Sunrise B for Trademark Owners Outside the Sponsored Community (Adult Entertainment Industry)
Now Accepting Applications – Apply Today
Application Fee: $349 (One-Time, Non Refundable)
Names secured through Sunrise B will not result in the registration of a resolving domain name at the .XXX registry. Instead, these names will be reserved and blocked from live use. The applied for name will resolve to a page indicating that the name is reserved from use through ICM Registry’s rights protection program. The “block” will be valid for a period of 10 years.
