If approved, the .xxx would join other so-called Top-Level Domains, or TLDs, including .com, .edu, .mil, .gov

7 Years of dileberations later the ICANN's board has finally approved the DOT XXX extensions for the porn industry.

The target is to sell 5 million web domains in the first year alone. Parents will be able to exercise parental control over the extension to limit use of porn sites on home computers.

It is rumored that the cost per year will be approximately $ 60.

The hunt for new domain names is sure to pick up and the online real estate market is again set to be in the limelight.

After the Dot com, net, edu and org the new XXX will be the talk within the information technology circles.
