Two major adult website players have filed a lawsuit against ICM Registry, the site that controls .xxx hosting names. The lawsuit states that the prices for adult web hosting sites are too high, and that these prices need to be lowered in order to create healthy competition. XXX shop sign

Details of the .XXX Lawsuit

Typically, an average .xxx site name sells for $100. This is a high price to pay for average website companies. Even though the adult entertainment business is a lucrative one, most online adult companies do not generate revenue right away.

One of the people behind the lawsuit goes by the name of ‘Manwin' and runs a handful of adult websites. Manwin is asking that the prices be lowered, and claims that these prices are unfair when compared to the rest of the hosting community. Manwin has won this case, and .xxx sites will be cheaper to purchase throughout the month of May.

Lowered Adult Web Hosting Prices In May

Throughout the month of May, .xxx domains will be sold at $7.85. Any companies that lock into this rate during May will be able to maintain the same rate for 10 years. So, if you want to start an adult online entertainment website, now's your chance to lock in a decent rate.

In addition to requesting lowered .xxx rates, Manwin is also protesting the splatter of advertisements across his sites. Right now, ICM Registry has the right to include any of its chosen advertisements on .xxx sites, but this is going to change in the very near future.

Is $100 Per Domain Too Much?

You might be thinking: “ok, a major adult site can't afford a $100 domain name? What nonsense!” But, if you think in other terms, you might see how this price is really on the high side. What are those terms? Most adult entertainment companies buy a number of different domains.

The two “major players” that filed this particular lawsuit have more than a handful of domain names between them. Think about $100 X 6 or 7, and you can see why this price is too high. Plus, lowering the price to under $8 will leave room for other people to set up adult domain names. So it all makes sense.

Remember: .xxx domain names are currently selling for under $8 throughout the month of May. If you want to set up an adult site, do it now!
