Porno On My Website?!?!

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Andrew Realty Serfvices

.XXX domain names

XXX – okay, now that I have your attention, I really do want to talk about adult entertainment.  You can now buy domain names that end in .xxx.  These domains are, of course, meant for the adult entertainment field.  However, if you’ve spent years building up your website how would you feel about a porn site using www.YourSite.xxx? 

 Large companies like Target and Coke have been buying up .xxx versions of their domain names and you can too.  Unfortunately it will cost you $99 each year to ensure no one else can use the name. 

 

 For years I’ve been joking that DebOnTheWeb.com sounds like it could be used for a porno site.  I now own www.DebOnTheWeb.xxx to make sure that doesn’t become a reality!

It just goes to show you how far our society has fallen when you have to protect yourself from these kind of things.

They had a store on our news here that all the state universities were buying up all combinations to be sure they don’t have any issues with this.

The list of domains I own keeps growing. .com, .org, .biz, .us, .me and now .xxx.  In my opinion, it's worth $99/year to know that there won't be a pornographic version of my brand out there!

Hi Jimmy, I thought of that too and that's why I'm not doing anything with the .xxx domain name.  I just bought it so no one can put a porno site there but I didn't forward it to my main domain!
