XXX almost live!


After a launch consisting of Sunrise period (over 100,000 reservations), and then a Landrush phase (reserved to just the porn industry), it is now time for the general opening of the extension to the general public. This latest phase will also allow those who were unable to protect their name before to try again.

If you are not part of the adult entertainment industry, then there is nothing more that you need to do than do register the domain, which will be blocked. By "blocked" we mean that it may not be used in any way at all: no link, no DNS, no forwarding, or mail etc.

If, however, you are a member of the sponsored community, you must, after purchasing your domain name, go to the Registry's website to fill out a form to confirm that you participate in the porn industry in order to make your .XXX domain active, and therefore, usable.

In both cases, the domain must be renewed each year, for €65 per year excl. vat under A rates (see all .XXX prices). Only those that blocked their domain during the Sunrise period will have their domain blocked for life and will not need to renew it.

The first orders for the general opening must be sent to the registry on December 6th at 5 PM CET. Also, since the landrush is over, we are now be able to take your per-registration requests.

These will be sent to the registry upon the opening of its technical platform. As usual, and without being able to guarantee that you will indeed get the domain you requested (many people will be simultaneously trying to register), we will do everything possible to send the orders in the order that they were received. Failed orders will be fully refunded to the prepaid account of the handle used to pay (or to the credit card used, upon request to support).
