From the company behind the hit .XXX domain comes .ADULT, one of the newest domains dedicated to the adult industry online. This additional domain should come as no surprise given the popularity of adult content on the Internet. In the world of new domains, where there’s an audience, there’s a domain extension.

In addition, people can register .ADULT websites to protect their reputation by preventing others from registering the same domain name.
