Root Servers Add .xxx

After much controversy, today IANA added the .xxx TLD to the root nameservers.

The top level domain was finally approved at the ICANN meeting on March 18, 2011. The timeline for the actual launch of the domain has not been made public.

The addition of this new TLD, while a source of contention, opens another avenue for commerce on the Internet that until now, has been restricted.

The .xxx registry website is now resolving and the delegation record for the new TLD can now also be found on the IANA website.

EnCirca will be participating in the Sunrise launch, so stay tuned for additional information.
