Here Come The Sexy .XXX Domain Names

Icann has finally approved .xxx domain names. Starting sometime in 2011, the Internet will be a far sexier, far more hardcore place to frequent.

Now, exactly when the domains will go live and how many there will be is still somewhat ambiguous at the moment, but Icann, the international body that approves such things, said 2011 is the target year, and more than 100,000 registered domains have already been requested.

If you're confused about this news (didn't this already happen?) don't worry, because .xxx domains were approved way back in 2005, before politically motivated conservative protest groups did what they do best and slowed the process to a crawl.

No matter. The porn site-only domains will do what they do best starting sometime in 2011. [BBC]
