The Internet body that governs domain names has rejected the controversial proposal to create a domain name for the adult entertainment industry.

The Internet body that governs domain names has rejected the controversial proposal to create a domain name for the adult entertainment industry.

The board of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, or ICANN, rejected the proposal for the new domain name suffix, called dot-xxx, by a 9-5 vote. In Canberra, Australia’s Minister for Communications and IT, Helen Coonan, who has publicly opposed the domain, applauded the decision yesterday.

“This is a positive outcome that has prevented the creation of a domain that could have acted as a haven for illegal and offensive content,” Coonan said.

“ICANN’s decision is also a reassurance that this body, responsible for overseeing the administration of domains at a global level, has robust decision-making processes that take account of stakeholders’ input.”
