Top 5 domain name wire news stories of November 2011

Four porn posts and a saviour.

4 posts about porn and one about religion grabbed the most attention at Domain Name Wire this month. I think I need to change the focus of this blog.

1. Apple gets control over porn domain names – Owner of domains agrees to transfer them to Apple (see #3). iPhone4s.com now forwards to apple.com web site.

2. .XXX launches national TV campaign and www.Buy.xxx – ICM Registry’s multi-million dollar ad campaign goes into high gear with TV commercials.

3. – Apple Fights for iPhone Porn Domain Names Including iphone4s.com – see #1.

4. Televangelist Kenneth Copeland loses fight against criticism site – Televangelist who says the more money you give to his church the more you’ll get from God fails to shut down critical web site.

5. Manwin’s Attack on .XXX is Really an Attack on New TLDs – adult entertainment company sues ICM Registry and ICANN.

    I don’t get this industry. We still have 100s of thousands of much more valuable dot com domains to promote. Why do we stray to new frontiers when as Rick Latona said today it’s a bitch to sell 1/1000th of your carried inventory?
