It's Getting Hot in Here! Get ready for the new .Sex TLD

ICM Registry, which operates the .XXX, .Porn and .Adult TLDs, has announced launch dates for its new .SEX TLD.  Similar to its original TLDs, .SEX will create a clearly marked place where adult entertainment and content can be both accessed and/or restricted. And since the keywords porn, adult, sex and xxx are searched over 300 million times per month, those in or associated with the industry should consider the brand new .SEX domain name for their portfolios.

Key Launch Phases:

  1. TMCH Sunrise, September 1 ~ October 1, 2015
    • This is for trademarks and brands who have registered their marks with the Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH). If you are a trademark or brand owner, make sure you register with the TMCH in time to participate in this phase.
  2. Sunrise B, Domain Matching,  October 5 ~ October 30, 2015
    • This is for anyone that either a) participated in the .XXX Sunrise B Program in 2011 or b) has a registered .XXX domain name as of October 1, 2015. If you have either of those, you have a priority and the opportunity to register the exact matching names in .SEX.
  3. General Availability, November 4, 2015
    • This is open to anyone interested in purchasing a .SEX domain name. No pre-eligibility requirements or prior registrations necessary.
