Minds and Machines is the sponsor and Uniregistry is the backend provider for the .XXX extension.

Who can register .XXX domains?

The .XXX top-level domain name provides an easily identifiable extension for the adult entertainment industry, its consumers, and those who want to avoid it.

Community Members

After you register a .XXX domain name, you must complete the ICM Registry’s free membership application process before your domain name can resolve to the internet. Within 24 hours of purchasing a .XXX domain name, the registry will email you information to complete this process. The registry might request additional documentation to validate the membership. After the registry validates the membership, you must submit your membership credentials (ID) to us.

Once you have a membership ID, you can use it for all .XXX domain names you register. You do not need a separate membership ID for each .XXX domain name.

Important Notice: For general information on how to manage your Membership ID, see “Managing Your .XXX Membership ID” under the “More Info” section below. If you should lose or forget your membership ID, log in to the ICM Registry website as a member to recover it.

Non-Members (Defensive Registrations)

Applicants outside the sponsored adult entertainment community can purchase defensive registrations to block domain names from becoming .XXX domain names on a first-come, first-served basis. Applicants with defensive registrations must pay to register the domain names but are not required to complete the ICM Registry’s membership application process. Instead, the registry places those domain names on non-resolving nameservers.

Registration restrictions

When registering a .XXX domain, you must follow specific requirements.

  • Must use: 1-63 characters
  • Can use: Letters (a-z characters), numbers (0-9) and hyphens (except in the 3rd or 4th characters of the domain name)
  • Cannot use: Special characters (e.g., & and #)
  • IDNs: Supported

Nameserver requirements

  • Must use: 1-13 nameservers
    • You can use any valid nameservers with .XXX domain names. If you have a defensive registration to block a domain name from becoming an .XXX domain name or you have purchased your .XXX domain during the Sunrise B phase, you cannot manage your domain nameservers.
  • Can useDNSSEC, IPv4, IPV6
