Trademark owners who do not want new “.xxx” Internet domain names to be based on their registered marks may now file blocking applications through October 28.

Details about blocking .xxx domain names can be found on our gTLD update page here, and more information about .xxx in general is available at www.about.xxx.

The cost to file a so-called “Sunrise B” blocking application varies by registrar, but appears to typically fall in the $200 - $250 range. A list of registrars who are accepting applications for .xxx names can be found at www.about.xxx/registrars.
