Porn Sites Closer to .XXX Web Address

Porn sites have stepped closer to a new ".xxx" Internet address after the global Internet oversight agency said it made mistakes in rejecting it three years ago.

The board of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, or ICANN, says it will now start the process of registering ".xxx" by making checks on ICM Registry LLC, the company that wants to run it.

ICANN says its 2007 refusal to accept the suffix was "not consistent with the application of neutral, objective and fair documented policy."

ICM first proposed the ".xxx" domain in 2000, and ICANN has rejected it three times already since then.
