    The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), recently approved the creation of a ".xxx" domain for pornographic websites. Religious groups and even pornographers have taken issue with the assignation, and nations are now taking a stand, as well.

    India has become the first country to block URLs ending in .xxx. The distribution of pornography is illegal in India and elsewhere, and other countries may follow India's lead.

    "India along with many other countries from the Middle East and Indonesia opposed the grant of the domain in the first place, and we would proceed to block the whole domain, as it goes against the IT Act and Indian laws," said a senior official at the ministry of IT, according to the Economic Times. "Though some people have said that segregation is better, and some countries allow it. But for other nations transmission and direct distribution of such content goes against their moral and culture."

    Pornographers and free speech activists have already voiced concerns that the .xxx suffix will allow authorities to winnow out adult content more easily.

    The Next Web contacted cyber lawyer and author of "The Fundamental Right to the Internet," Vivek Sood, who pointed out that pornography can still be hosted on .com and .in domains in India.

    Indeed, the application process for a .xxx domain is voluntary.

    Sites seeking to join will be subjected to a set of standards that prohibit child pornography, among other restrictions, and protect consumers against Malware, TechSpot reports. The new domains will also cost as much as $50 dollars more per year than traditional domains, according to the AP.

    Of course porn sites are going to swap to .xxx and ditch their old domains. What a waste of time.
    Your porn is safe.

    According to the article, these .xxx websites are not allowed to have malware, or something like that.
    So I guess it's got that going for it.

    Considering they are trademarks they'd threaten you with legal action unless you give them the domain.

    it's a country where MARRIED COUPLES freak the fuck out when you say the word "sex" and parents tell their 20+ year old children with a straight face that you'll have children if you pray to (insert deity here) for them. that really all you need to know about india and sex.

    my parents are from india and this statement is too true

    I'm not even sure if even in today's era they do any form of sex education in schools over there, even with all the westernization going on

    They'd probably sue you.
    Like when someone would register some celebrity's name on Twitter they'd demand you give them the account or they sue you.

    with australia it's just the censorship board overreacting while in india, pakistan and the rest of south asia it's because of a genuine fear of sex or anything sex related. no joke.
