    One year registrations will likely start at about $75; DomainMonster releases pricing.

    When .xxx domain names get past the sunrise and landrush period, you can expect general availability pricing to run from about $75 a year, just above the wholesale pricing from ICM Registry.

    Today DomainMonster announced its pricing. For general availability a .xxx domain will cost you $99.99, but bulk customers who register 25 or more “years” at once (e.g. 13 domains for 2 years) will pay only $74.99.

    DomainMonster has positioned itself as a key player in the initial launch rush of new domain names, doing particularly well with .co domains. I expect it to be a major player on .xxx, so its pricing is very relevant.

    Still, I expect competition to push prices down as general availability gets closer.

    DomainMonster’s landrush pricing will be $150-$200 and trademark sunrise pricing will be $250-$300.

  • The prices .xxx remind me of 17+ years ago when .COMs cost $75 yearly. Must be a lot of interest because I’ve seen one of my domains XxxTopLevelDomains.com spike in interest. Prospective buyers maybe looking to use it as a central hub domain site to sell the xxx TDL domains. Not sure yet.
