    Re: News - ICANN approves .xxx adult entertainment domain

    is HEXUS doing a review of 'compatibility of the new .xxx domain and various browsers'
    i.e. .xxx in firefox 3, .xxx in firefox 3.1. and so on.. you would need to test a wide variety of different .xxx's like video download, streaming video sites and forums/readers wives..

    wonder who will get that job?

    i suspect it will also be popular, if you encourage the HEXUS readers to do user reviews of their own 'research' into the new .xxx.

    just a thought i had

    There's nothing to review, all addresses entered are resolved by the OSes DNS resolver. Top level domains are linked to the root nameservers, the .xxx domains is resolved by the .xxx domain servers, etc..

    .xxx would need no more browser compatibility testing than the .biz domain that was approved of not so long ago.

    It all depends if they intend to enforce the .xxx domain.

    If they do force all "adult" domains to use .xxx and nothing else, then they must enforce .org, .net and .com too.

    So does this decision pave the way for the national providers to follow suit? xxx.uk, xxx.tv, xxx.nl etc...?

    That'd be up to the registrars for those nations.

    Does it really matter if it's enforced or not? The adult industry has been asking for .xxx so they can be self-regulating for ages, I can only see this as a good thing for companies and parents as it'd make filtering a whole lot easier. Even catching 99% of the smut is still 99% caught.

    Because there are enough already?

    Also given how most porn sites fail to deliver anything but silly spyware, hence why as a recent mac user, I know I'm immune, because we don't need any smut, what with all the hot girls and scooters we have.....
