US Colleges Also Adhere to .xxx Sites

The termination domain.xxx has been approved by ICANN to give adult sites much more apparent feature. When entering an address with .xxx, the user is sure that will enter a gray area of the web. Or nearly so: American colleges decided to register sites with the TLD.

Only it’s not what your unprejudiced mind thought. The US colleges requested the registration of their names in .xxx to protect the marks of possible fraudulent use. The University of Missouri – Columbia, for example, made ​​sure to ask himself themissouri.xxx the missouritigers.xxx and mizzou.xxx .

Remember that domains ending in .xxx may not work. Initially, the consortium that handles the records opened a kind of pre-registration requests to analyze brands and the like. They also created the service domain blocking, which should be the resource used by the University of Missouri – Columbia to protect your name in this segment internets facing adults.

I would not surprise me at all if they arose sites with addresses as ucla.xxx (UCLA is the University of California – Los Angeles) or yale.xxx facing the university adult theme. Some managers of educational institutions realized the opportunity and are protecting. I think fair.

In the queue challenges ICANN appear domains ending in. marca. The novelty was approved by the agency in June of that year, but is still awaiting implementation. In theory, companies like Google could have its name as TLDs instead of .com or .com. The Google Maps would be in http://maps.google and Google Docs would be in http://docs.google.
