We have words that the Domain Registry authority, ICANN is under immense pressure from various proponents to bring all adult entertainment sites under .xxx domain and thus make it easily filter-able by parents. Now in a country like India where, more and more children and adults look forward to the internet as a medium of entertaining themselves with porn sites and sex video sites, having a domain name ending with XXX gives a direct gateway to porn websites for children. If you may not know, India is ranked amongst top 3 countries in the world for searching ‘Sex’ online!

As far as implementing a XXX domain is concerned, one of the requirements of anyone registering a .xxx domain is that the site carries meta-tags that will be automatically picked up by the popular browsers and allow people who want to avoid the content to easily do so. In this article we had shown you a lot of stats regarding online porn in India. Implementing XXX domains would definitely help parents to filter pornographic content from their computers for their children. Also, applications that are specifically meant to serve the purpose of filtering out pornographic content from the internet will find it a lot more easier to do so as this would simply involve filtering out websites that have a .xxx domain name. As the famous saying goes – “Every Coin has two sides” – Where implementing these domains would definitely help parents to control what their children watch online, but on the other hand this measure would definitely act as a huge blow to the billion dollar Internet pornographic industry.

    Way back on 7th March 2002, I had placed an article in naavi.org supporting a move to introduce .xxx extension. I would be happy if the proposal is back in contention since it makes it easy for filtering of the content even at the ISP level.
