Blacknight To Offer .XXX Domain Names This Autumn

Blacknight will be offering .xxx domain names to customers this autumn

PRLog - May 19, 2011 - CARLOW, Ireland -- Blacknight are strong believers in freedom of choice and this autumn, they will be giving you the freedom to choose to register an .xxx domain name.

Having a long history of early adoption and innovation in the domain space, Blacknight (http://www.blacknight.com) are to be among the first registrars to offer this new Internet extension (also know as a Top-Level Domain or TLD).

.xxx is a new top-level domain sponsored by ICM Registry for adult entertainment purposes. Soon, those involved in the adult industry will be able to register domain names that end in .xxx instead of .com, .org, etc.  Although controversial to some, Blacknight, renowned for their quirky marketing campaigns and innovations in the use of .ie and .me, warmly welcome the new extension to the domain space.

Michele Neylon of Blacknight states:
“Few registrars will provide the option of registering a .XXX domain name in the first round and we are proud to be among them. We aren’t in the business of censorship, if registrants want .xxx domains, they can register them through us. We aim to serve as wide an audience as the imagination permits. “

Staurt Lawley, CEO of ICM Registry praises Blacknight’s forward thinking in offering .xxx to its registrants.
“We are pleased to announce that Blacknight has met our selection criteria as a Registrar.  Their dedication to the Irish market and ever growing presence in Europe were strong factors as ICM Registry develops our channel to market via select participating ICANN Accredited Registrars that provide high quality services for the imminent launch of the .XXX Top Level Domain.”

.xxx will launch in the autumn of 2011 with a 30-day sunrise (pre-registration) period for those in the adult entertainment business with verifiable trademark rights and exact match names in other extensions. A simultaneous sunrise period will occur for those who are not members of the adult community but have verifiable trademark rights and wish to block their name in the .xxx TLD. After the sunrise, members of the adult community have 14 days to register domains before the .xxx is opened up to general availability.

For those concerned about potential issues with the .xxx, Neylon explains:
“There are a lot of IP safeguards and online safety measures in place. As a concept the TLD is very well thought out. We want to insure the success of the namespace and look forward to handling the registration requests”

Exercise your right to choose and register your .xxx domains with Blacknight.
