Local Schools Buy .xxx Domain Names to Protect Their Reputation

Picture

 
 Local institution Columbia State Community College recently spent approximately $1,000 to purchase eight .xxx domain names. No, CSCC is not going into the business of providing adult entertainment,  it is joining the many thousands of other trademark owners who are purchasing the .xxx domain names to keep others from using their brands to post and sell pornographic material. The .xxx domain names are.xxx (known as “dot triple-X“)  and are intended as a voluntary option for pornagraphic sites on the Internet. 
 ICM Registry, the company overseeing .xxx domain name registration, allowed trademark owners to secure .xxx domains for $200 before sales opened to the adult entertainment community on Dec. 6, 2011. 
 Spending $200 is very cheap insurance to keep CSCC and other business from costly disputes over the use of their brands on pornographic sites. If your business hasn’t purchased its own .xxx domain name, it probably should strongly consider it.
