.xxx general availability

From the 6th of December 2011 the .xxx domain name will be available for anyone to register on the Easyspace website.

During the final stage (general availability), both members and non-members of sponsored adult community will be eligible to apply for domain name with .xxx extension on a first come, first serve basis.

According to a recent press release from ICM registry, over 80,000 applications were received during the Sunrise period for .xxx web address. During the first launch phase, 78,938 applications for trademarked/pre-owned domains were received, while 1,524 other web addresses were allocated as part of The Founders Program.

Sarah Haran, managing director of Easyspace, said: “This is the last but probably the busiest phase of the .xxx launch where the remaining .xxx domain names can be purchased instantly, so I’d urge people to pre-register in the next seven days if they haven’t already done so. Once the registry confirms it, you will be the legal owner of the domain you’ve requested so if you don’t get in quick you could end up disappointed.”

Easyspace strongly advise all new and existing customers to use pre-registration facility for .xxx domains before domains goes on public on 6th December. The pre-registration fee for general availability is currently set at £79.99 per domain year (includes £20 processing fee).

General availability is the third phase that started with Sunrise period which was exclusively dedicated to trademark owners and other IP holders from outside the Sponsored Community (Sunrise B – Block), members of the Adult sponsored community who already own and operated an existing exact matching domain name in another TLD (Sunrise AD – Grandfathering phase), trademark owners and other IP holders from within the Adult Sponsored Community (Sunrise AT – Adult Trademarks) closely followed by Laudrush, a limited time opportunity for adult community members who wanted to secure a high value .xxx name, will be the final stage of the dot-xxx launch process.

The total number of domain registrations is expected to increase once all applications for Landrush period has been finalised.
