...as if we needed more than 1 of the most descriptive, .xxx...

The four gTLDs that can now be registered on GoDaddy are: .xxx, .porn, .adult, and .sex.

The oldest, .xxx, was launched in 2011. It has the greatest number of registrations at 55,000 domains. The second most used adult top-level domain is .porn — delegated three years later in 2014 — with around 10,000 domains. Also launched around the time of .porn are .adult and .sex which have around 8000 domains each.

There are 115 million .com websites registered. It's estimated that 4% of websites are pornographic in nature. Therefore, it's safe to assume that the 80,000 domains (provided that a larger number of them aren't speculative investments) from gTLDs barely scratch the surface of the king's potential 4.6 million domains in the adult niche.

The price of .xxx at GoDaddy is regularly $18.99 for the first year, but it's on sale for $11.99 with a $11.99 standard renewal. The same pricing structure applies to .porn, .adult, and .sex.

I mean, at this point, I feel we have enough porn on the internet until the Sun goes out.

Huh, fallen ones are marking themselves, that's convenient.

Any decent registrar should decline to work with such TLDs.

The .XXX had 90,244 registrations at the start of the month. It might sound impressive but the reality is that most of these registrations (approximately 91%) are brand protection registrations rather than developed websites. Brand protection registations tend to be renewed year after year even if they are not used.
