.XXX Domains Pre-Reg Prices Listed at $133+ per Address

Diane Duke

What a deal!

DomainDiscount24.COM has listed a “May special” pricing schedule for .XXX domains, starting at a whooping $133 to $158 per address. As explained in this articlefrom YNOT.COM, the price is more than double ICM Registry’s wholesale price of $62. Oh, and don’t forget about the application fess – which start at $115 – for addresses that have not been permanently blocked and which are not purchased during the “general availabilty” registration period. Sounds pretty special, doesn’t it?

We encourage you to read about the rest at YNOT, where you will find a link to various pricing for the sTLD. Then, we  encourage you to do the math. For a large online program – say, with 10,000 .com addresses – even at wholesale price you would be looking at $62,000 annually in fees. And that’s just for starters.

Oh, and did we mention that, after .XXX was approved, Europe requested that the U.S. Department of Commerce delay  introduction of the new sTLD to the root system, pending further discussion?

FSC opposes .XXX. You worked hard to build your online business – do you want to move it to an address in the adult online ghetto? Stay .COM, and say “NO” to .XXX. – jc
