Internet porn domain goes live | News24

San Francisco – A new .xxx domain suffix for adult content sites went live Tuesday, in a move which supporters say will help web surfers easily identify pornography sites.

All sites using that suffix will also be monitored to ensure they do not contain hidden computer viruses commonly found on millions of sex sites.

Opponents of the new system, including anti-pornography and religious groups, say the move condones smut, encourages the viewing of pornography and makes it easier for kids to find.

Some X-rated entrepreneurs also oppose the move on the grounds that it may eventually force all sexually explicit sites to use the .xxx suffix. Currently porn sites are free to keep their current suffixes, even if they have a .xxx site.
