Masala.xxx Didn’t Get the Memo About India and .XXX Domain Names

Users might have a hard time reaching Indian .xxx site.

I was caught a bit off guard when reading Elliot’s story today about Masala.xxx launching.

This is apparently an adult site aimed at India.

Although I don’t believe anything is done yet, India is high up on list of countries that will try to block .xxx domain names from resolving.

It seems odd that you’d launch a .xxx site aimed squarely and India in the face of it being hard for your target visitors to actually resolve your site.

But perhaps people just visit these sites through proxies anyway.

    On the other hand, if the Indian government uses the super enlimpening site at masala.xxx as an example of what the TLD is about, perhaps it may rethink its ideas about blocking it.

    Nope, just a huge fail by the website’s creators. Blocking gTLD’s such as .xxx entirely will be a very common practice in the coming years.
