The question of whether to set up a new top-level domain, .xxx, will probably be on the agenda as the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) meets in Nairobi this week.

The topic was last raised – and rejected – in 2007.
ICM Registry first mooted the .xxx domain back in 2000, arguing that it would make it easy to prevent children from accessing pornographic content.
However, it has met with opposition from all quarters: on one hand, it's argued that children could simply bypass the domain and type in the IP address; on the other hand, it's feared that such a domain would create an online red-light district that could be easily monitored and managed by governments.
ICM has complained about the 2007 rejection of its plan, and ICANN has indicated that it will discuss the issue tomorrow (Friday).
