College.xxx? Schools snap up porn domains to keep them clean


That’s just one of the reasons for the school’s decision to register washu.xxx, along with washingtonuniversity.xxx and wustl.xxx.

And don’t expect to find much if you visit any of those addresses. It’s one of the differences between the .xxx sites and mainstream sites with .com, .edu and .net extensions. Often, organizations will set up their various domain addresses to all point to the same Web page. Not so with the .xxx addresses.

“In this case, they won’t point to anything,” Daubert said.
