With the rise and launch of new top-level domains (TLDs) in the last 10 years, no longer has the word-wide-web been limited to ‘.com.’ and ‘.net’. With this massive expansion of the Internet, brand owners have been faced with significant new challenges in protecting their names and trademarks from cybercriminals. Are you ensuring your brand and reputation are protected within the online adult space? AdultBlock gives brand owners piece-of-mind by blocking their names and brands in all four adult-industry-themed TLDs:  .xxx, .sex, .porn, and .adult.

AdultBlock domain extensions

Introducing AdultBlock…

AdultBlock replaces the original .xxx domain blocks that took place during the TLD’s launch in 2011. AdultBlock uses new technology in domain blocking to provide the easiest and most cost-effective domain protection for brand owners.

How does AdultBlock work?

With trademark infringement on the rise, it is critical for brand owners to take proactive strategies to safeguard their trademarks. AdultBlock is proactive brand protection in which brands, organizations, and celebrities can effortlessly block cybercriminals from exploiting their brands and customer trust within the online adult space. 

Previously exclusive to brand trademark participants of the Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH) and to original .xxx domain block holders, AdultBlock now allows any brand or individual to apply for protections, even with unregistered trademarks.  

AdultBlock prevents the registration of your name, brand, or other trademarks across all four of the adult-themed TLDs within the domain space. Save yourself the time and resources it takes to register and manage these domains separately, for a fraction of the cost and effort.
