Taylor Swift Buys .Porn and .Adult web domain names

Taylor Swift has been trending for purchasing adult themed domain names but the move was more business savvy than shocking. According to the BBC, some stars and companies have been given early access to purchase the following gTLDs before sales go public on June 1st.

Swift and her management proactively registered taylorswift.porn and taylorswift.adult to protect her best interests and thwart potential abuse, such as cybersquatting. Defensive registration refers to this practice of purchasing domain names that are relevant to your brand in order to protect against malicious damages, and prevent others from making money off of the domain names.

If you’re new to the gTLD domain frenzy: In the past year IANA (Internet Assigned Numbers Authority) released 600+ new extensions called gTLDs (Generic Top Level Domain), including .Community, .Diamonds, .Wtf & many more. The impressive release of new extensions has resulted in an infinite number of domain name combinations. (Read more)

Taylor Swift’s new domain names cost her $99 each, but there are combinations as cheap as $10 to a reported $2,500.  Check out IANA's releases here and happy domain hunting!
