In a bid to “reward existing .XXX adult site owners and encourage new registrants,” the ICM Registry announced a $75 Search.XXX advertising credit (valid for 90 days) to .XXX domain name owners. The advertising platform has not been launched yet.
The company also announced that its seen 2 millions visits and 12 million pageviews to its Search.XXX adult search engine, making the advertising credit seem like a pretty solid incentive for someone who is developing their .XXX domain name(s).
Let’s say you go to Name.com (or another registrar) and you register YourFavoriteFetish.XXX for $84.99 and launch a white label adult website. You’ll receive a $75 credit for advertising on Search.XXX, so you can immediately be able to drive traffic to your new site and hopefully begin to earn revenue.
101Domain.com has an even better offer, essentially giving full value in advertising for registering a domain name: “Sponsored Community customers can renew or register with us for one year at $75 and get the entire amount credited towards ad credits on Search.xxx !”
I have no idea what type of traffic you’d be able to drive with the $75 you’ll be given, nor do I know adult conversion rates and RPC numbers, but it seems like a reasonable offer and a good way to start making money with your .XXX domain names.
I highly doubt the company will permit parked names to use these credits though.
