Domain .xxx set to be set up in the Internet as the virtual red-light district for pornography websites.

Applicants for the dot triple x domains claim the unique domain could help clean up the online industry, by signposting pornography for parents, thus enabling parents to limit porn exposure to children and it will screen out child pornography. Other benefit is the fact that sites will be screened for spam, spyware and credit card fraudsters.

However, not all porn sites will be confined to dot xxx, so the actual benefits of porn domain is still unclear, unless you can be certain that if the url ends with xxx, it contains pornography.

ICANN, which regulates and assigns top level country internet codes such as dot nz, dot ca, and dot com, set to approve the xxx domain at a meeting in New Zealand later this month.
