Get your .xxx domain today! Before it's too late!

The .xxx land grab has begun. Don't get left behind.

If you've been really busy today, you may have missed the news that the .xxx domain is now, finally and officially, live on an Internet near you!

But if you had purchased any domain from Register.com in, say, the past 100 years or so, you're probably on a Register.com email list. Lucky you, because Register.com is making sure you are aware of this fantastic .xxx opportunity.

The subject line of an email I received Thursday breathlessly informs me:

.XXX domains are now available to EVERYONE!

In the body of the email, Register.com implores customers to "protect your brand today with a .XXX domain."

I can't tell if Register.com means that companies such as Apple, Microsoft and Ted's Home & Garden Supplies should scoop up .XXX domains with their company names so they're not used for genuine .XXX purposes, thus confusing consumers searching for iPads, Xbox 360s and weeding tools.

Or maybe the brands needing protecting are the existing porn sites such as PornTube, RedTube, YouPorn, Spankwire and others someone once told me existed.

Either way, getting in on the .XXX land grab through Register.com will cost a mere $129 a year.

Which isn't a bad price for some prestigious Internet real estate, but when it comes to crazy deals, you can't beat GoDaddy, which offers one year of .XXX domain ownership for only $99.99. Why? Because they're insane!

So whether you want to protect your brand -- or maybe burnish it -- with a .XXX domain, better get moving before someone else does.
