ICM Registry, the registry operator for the .XXX, .PORN, .ADULT and .SEX top-level domains (TLDs), announces the launch of its general availability period for .SEX.
Domain names in all of ICM Registry’s extensions are now available for public purchase.
Retail prices vary by registrar but Godaddy is charging $72 for a .sex domain name.
According to ntldstats.com .Sex got just over 3,800 domain registrations through Sunrise and the .XXX matching program although the registry told me that .sex had 4,140 domains registered. ntldstats.com only counts domains that have servers.
Stuart Lawley, Chairman and CEO of ICM Registry is quoted as saying:
“With over 20,000 names registered in our new adult TLDs this year and over 4,000 names registered during our special launch programs for .SEX, there is clearly a strong interest in these extensions, considering the success of our previous launch phases, we’re looking forward to .SEX becoming accessible to the general public.”
ICM Registry offers adult-industry keyword names as a part of its ongoing Premium Program, including two character premium names in .PORN, .ADULT and .SEX. For the adult industry, premium keywords are now on both sides of the dot in a domain name.
For the first time ICM Registry is making internationalized domain names (IDNs) available as second level names in all of its TLDs. Domain names in over twenty languages and scripts from around the world, including German, Spanish, Russian, Japanese, Korean and Chinese are now available for global registration.
