    Comparison of .xxx landrush pricing.

    Just like I did for sunrise, I’ve compiled pricing for the .xxx landrush. The landrush period runs November 8-November 25. During this period adult companies can apply for any .xxx domain they want that wasn’t reserved during sunrise or blocked by the registry. If more than one company or person applies for the same domain it will be sent to an auction. There’s no benefit to applying early on in the period; it’s not first-come-first-served.

    Finding pricing for landrush is not easy, so you should verify pricing with the registrar before placing an order. I found that many registrars haven’t “recovered” from sunrise enough to post their landrush plans. There’s also a bit of pricing confusion as well. Most registrars charge an application fee plus a one year registration fee if successful. But some registrar post just one fee that clearly doesn’t include both charges.

    Bottom line: verify everything before placing your order.

    Based on what I found, it looks like DomainMonster and eNom offer the best pricing for .xxx Landrush. The eNom pricing is for resellers, which just about every eNom customer I know is. Hexonet also has a good price (excludes VAT).

    If you work for an .xxx accredited registrar that is not on the list below, please send your pricing to me and I’ll update the chart.

    Whats the point? We all know .XXX is a scam.

  • Quite a variety in the pricing…

    If this had come around 10+ years ago – it would have been of interest to me… When
    I had an entire Adult Network (extremely
    successful and lucrative – but – I got burnt out… bored… I get bored easy…)

    In 2011 – I no longer Own any Adult Businesses or Internet Ventures… Took me quite awhile to move away 100% – but I am much happier where I am in life now and make a great income doing what I do – not as much as in adult — but more than enough…)
