.XXX Registry Offers Free .XXX Domain Names To Models

ModelCentro, a hosted pay site CMS for creating and running fan membership sites, has teamed up with ICM Registry, the .xxx registry, to offer Models.xxx. Verified models using the ModelCentro platform are able to register one .XXX domain free of charge.  Another benefit for participating models will be promotion on the Models.xxx directory, which has been created to drive quality affiliate traffic to the model sites on the ModelCentro affiliate program. More information about the global affiliate program can be found on ModelCentro.xxx/affiliates.

“We’re excited to bring top-level names to web performers on the ModelCentro platform,” said Stan D’Aman, ModelCentro CEO. “Our collaboration with ICM provides a great opportunity for our models to create a brand name for themselves.”  Continue reading

.XXX Registry Simplifies Membership Process

ICM Registry, the .xxx registry, has modified the Membership Process for owning and making an .xxx domain name active. Membership Portal has been shut down. So if you need your .XXX Member Token, you simply need to send ICM Registry a request through the Contact form.

Here is the email I got from ICM Registry: Continue reading

ICM Registry releases 39 previously reserved .xxx domains into general availability: eee.xxx, sos.xxx, etc.

ICM Registry released 39 previously reserved .xxx domains into general availability. These were once listed in the premium/reserved list with various prices such as $11,000 for 666.xxx. Some domains have already been registered so anyone interested needs to hurry.

ICM Registry has been offering a list of (1283 today) premium/reserved .xxx domain names for sale with prices. Yesterday I wrote how ICM Registry sold 73 .xxx domain names from the list in the past few months for a total of $516,800 USD.

ICM Registry sells 73 .xxx domain names for a total of $516,800: voyeur.xxx, dates.xxx, college.xxx, etc.

ICM Registry has been offering a list of (1283 today) premium/reserved .xxx domain names for sale with prices. ICM Registry has sold 73 .xxx domain names from the list in the past few months for a total of $516,800 USD. And that is excluding a couple of publicized sales such as the tube(s).xxx sale for $750,000.

ICM Registry also added 400 new .XXX Domain Names worth $13,686,300 to the list in the past few months and they raised prices on a lot of .xxx domains already on the list.

Luxemburg based Iris SA bought more 6 domains after buying 25 domains worth $185,000 last year (singles.xxx, sexvideos.xxx, adultchat.xxx) and spending another $650,000 back in September 2012:
ebonyporn.xxx
sexsex.xxx
gaysex.xxx
bang.xxx
pimps.xxx
cocksuckers.xxx

Internet Key Inc. also bought 6 domain names:
classic.xxx
daddy.xxx
granny.xxx
toon.xxx
spanking.xxx
tattoo.xxx

Really Useful Limited, that bought the domains tube.xxx and tubes.xxx for a total of $750,000, continued buying by adding another 3 .xxx domains to it’s portfolio:
callgirls.xxx
strapon.xxx
360.xxx

Michael Landau owner of Xdomains.com bought the domain names dates.xxx ($35000) and freexxx.xxx ($13000) yesterday.

It seems that there was a bulk purchase for a lot of .xxx domains that are now registered with Go Daddy and behind privacy.

Here is the list of the 73 sold .xxx domain names from the past few months: Continue reading

ICM Registry Adds 400 Reserved .XXX Domain Names Worth $13,686,300 To It’s Premium Domains For Sale

ICM Registry, the .xxx registry, has been offering a list of 1046 .xxx domain names for sale with prices since October 2012. Not many updates had been done to that list, other than removing sold domains, up until recently.

Apparently when the available domains dropped below the 1000 limit the ICM Registry started adding more domains in this priced list of reserved .xxx domains.

ICM Registry has added 400 premium .XXX domain names with a total value of $13,686,300 to this list. The average price of the newly added domains is $34,216.

From this new list 2 domains have already been sold:
tube.xxx (in the recent tube.xxx/tubes.xxx $750,000 sale)
spanking.xxx
(kut.xxx has also been taken out: pending sale?)

A few domains were taken off the original list. Most were 3 letter or 3 number domains. Now the list has 1283 reserved and priced .xxx domain names. Also ICM Registry has updated prices on more than 200 domains from the original list. More on this tomorrow.

There are 20 domains out the 400 added that are priced in the 6 figures:

cam.xxx $400000
cams.xxx $400000
tube.xxx $400000
teens.xxx $375000

Porn.com buys Porn.xxx from ICM Registry

ICM Registry, the registry operator for the .XXX top level domain (TLD) for online adult entertainment, announced today that they have struck a deal with one of the most recognized companies in the online adult content industry, PimpRoll, for the coveted Porn.xxx domain.

The price was not disclosed but given the sale of gay.xxx at $500,000 and the current prices on premium .xxx domains that ICM Registry is currently selling, I wouldn’t be surprised if the price was in mid 6 figures. Girls.xxx is for sale for $220,000 and fuck.xxx for $165,000 at the ICM Registry website. Porn.xxx was not in this list of prized domains because probably ICM believed that it was worth a lot more than $220k.

PimpRoll, the entertainment giant with significant, high profile presence in the .com adult content industry, following their reported $9.5 million dollar acquisition of Porn.com a few years ago is now creating a .XXX destination that marries PimpRoll’s high quality content and safe payment options with the ever growing world of the .XXX community.

PimpRoll plans to roll out Porn.xxx as a full tube site with the same high-quality content that has helped it become a leader in the .com adult entertainment arena. The decision to launch Porn.xxx puts PimpRoll among a growing list of content providers that are helping grow the Internet’s hottest top-level domain.

“PimpRoll is a company that has always made bold moves to better our brands and improve the user experience for our audience” said Phil Bradbury, Vice President of PimpRoll. “The .XXX domain market has been a controversial one in the eyes of some, but as responsible business owners we have done our own due diligence and believe there is value in expanding our presence with the launch of Porn.xxx for the benefit of adult entertainment consumers and our marketing partners as well.”

Adult industry attorney Corey D. Silverstein whose office represents PimpRoll was equally pleased with this deal. “This deal is a perfect example of how two companies can collectively engage in a transaction that makes them both stronger, in the present and in the future.” Silverstein said. “Both companies have demonstrated a tremendous amount of foresight and entrepreneurship in completing this transaction.”

“Porn.xxx is an important and influential domain within the adult industry and our friends at PimpRoll recognize the power it can bring to develop a content-rich site on this new domain. As the operators of Porn.com, they have exemplified best practices within the online adult content industry and were the obvious best fit for Porn.xxx.” said Steve Winyard, Vice President of ICM Registry.

PimpRoll’s decision to participate in the .XXX TLD comes shortly after ICANN announced their upcoming rollout of a slew of new generic TLDs. By securing Porn.xxx now PimpRoll will also automatically qualify for Porn.sex, Porn.porn and Porn.adult under ICM’s “Grandfathering Program” should ICM be successful in gaining those new TLDs from ICANN.

Porn.xxx will now be searchable through ICM Registry’s adult content only search engine, Search.xxx. Search.xxx offers a clean user interface and intuitive keyword searches. Search.xxx, which uses the same technology as usual mainstream search engines but is for adult content only, allows you to set your language preference and your sexual orientation preference, as well as to control the “look and feel” of your style preference.

More on PimpRoll

Since 2001 PimpRoll has made its mark in the world of adult entertainment by continually developing innovative products while simultaneously demonstrating the highest ethical standards. The company continues to operate hundreds of lucrative pay sites, an industry leading affiliate marketing program and several other key products in a fully integrated empire of digital traffic monetization.

Recently PimpRoll released the game-changing HostedTube.com affiliate tool allowing tens of thousands of new tube sites to be built by affiliates over the course of only a few months. Later the company announced the creation of TrafficForce.com, a state of the art source for premium traffic, free of any of the difficulties associated with third-party digital property brokerage. Content producers have also benefited greatly from the work done by PimpRoll with the launch of PaidPerView.com, a system that allows publishers to display their own content across a wide range of networked PimpRoll sites in return for direct payments on a per video view basis along with additional indirect monetization via traffic leads sent from advertising displayed on the site video pages. Now PimpRoll is continuing their long history of successful evolution by taking over the Porn.XXX web address as well.

Manwin and ICM Registry come to agreement over 2011 dispute

Following a dispute that began in November 2011, Manwin and Manwin DP have come to an agreement with ICM Registry to bring the dispute to an end.

One of Manwin’s key motivations was to make .XXX pricing lower and more competitive.

Manwin has negotiated a lower price for newly-created .XXX domains created in the month of May 2013. .XXX domains will be made available to registrars at a substantially discounted wholesale price of USD$7.85, which is the current wholesale price of a .com. ICM will run similar price promotions in future years as well.

Furthermore, ICM has agreed to contribute USD$2 for every new .XXX domain name registration created after April 30, 2013. The monthly contribution will be made to a fund designated by Manwin to support the adult entertainment industry. These funds are in addition to ICM’s contributions to IFFOR.

Beyond the financial agreements, Manwin will now permit content from or advertising for .XXX websites on its Tube sites. In addition, Manwin related properties will allow websites hosted on .XXX sites to participate in any of its affiliate and promotional programs generally available to other website operators.

In the agreement ICM also acknowledges that websites hosted on their adult-specific TLDs are not the only responsible and safe adult content websites.

Both parties feel that these arrangements will set precedent for trade and consumer benefit and protection for the online space.
