New ".XXX" Top Level Domain to Create a Virtual Red Light District for Online Porn

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) are the group of people that brought us the .com .net and .org. Now, they have just approved a motion to introduce a new ".xxx" domain that will create a new virtual red-light district on the Internet.

It is no secret that pornography has seeped into many corners of the Internet and it has become increasingly hard to control. The hope is that adult content providers will voluntarily embrace the new .xxx domain in order to relieve pressure from family groups who seek easier ways to block adult content from their children.
