Tomorrow Last Day for .XXX Sunrise B Applications

ICM RegistryThe ICM Registry is currently accepting Sunrise B applications for .XXX domain names, and the final day to reserve one is tomorrow, October 28, 2011. If you want to opt out of .XXX for a trademark, tomorrow will be the last day to do it.

The landrush period will begin on November 8 and run through November 25. This phase of the release is for members of the adult community who do not have trademarks but do want to purchase .XXX domain names.

According to Andrew Allemann, the registry has grossed over $10,000,000 already, and they haven’t even hit the landrush or general ¬†availability ¬†domain sales yet, which will likely be the company’s bread and butter (main revenue stream). It’s an incredible story, and while the topic may be polarizing for many people, it is getting people to talk about domain names and gTLDs (although this is not a gTLD).

More information about Sunrise B is available on the ICM Registry website.
