ICANN OKs .xxx domain name for porn sites

(CNET)
Porn sites may soon be able to tag themselves with a .xxx address now that ICANN has given the new domain name its initial OK. After denying several requests over the years for a new .xxx top-level domain, ICANN (the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) finally relented by giving the new domain its conditional approval. see also For X-Rated, a Domain of Their Own (New York Times)
