Big numbers in latest top level domain release.

I just got an email from ICM Registry about .xxx registration results in the first 24 hours.

55,367 new .xxx domain names were registered. That brings total registrations (including sunrise and landrush) to 159,351 as of noon EST today.

Many of these domains won’t resolve, of course — they were registered by non adult companies wishing to block their brands from becoming porn sites.

High registration prices of around $100 will keep a check on total registration numbers. It should also keep a check on the level of cybersquatting on .xxx.

The numbers mean ICM registry brought in about $3.3 million in revenue in the past 24 hours, with over half a million headed to International Foundation for Online Responsibility (IFFOR).
