Protecting your brand in the new .XXX

ICANN recently approved ICM Registry’s application for the .XXX domain. The .XXX domain is intended for adult entertainment and related content. The intention is to make it easier for internet users to avoid contact with content that they do not wish, and to allow others to make it easier find what they are seeking.

For 52 days from September 7 to October 28, 2011, intellectual property holders can apply to opt-out of .XXX. Owners of a trademark registration who do not want their names registered as domain names by others in .XXX may reserve their names. If no conflicting application by an .XXX registration applicant has been made, these names will be reserved from registration (blocked).
