.XXX Launch

Successful .XXX Sunrise and Landrush with Key-Systems

St. Ingbert, 2011-12-05, The domain registrar Key-Systems achieved a success rate of 95 per cent within all pre-registrations during the .XXX Sunrise and Landrush phases. Key-Systems managed to register 94 per cent of the pre-ordered .XXX domain names for its customers during the Sunrise. The Landrush rate was 95 per cent. In the course of this week, the responsible ICM registry will hand on the information on the single customer domains to Key-Systems. Thereupon, the registrar will inform its customers on the status of their domains. The Go Live (General Availability), the last phase of the .XXX launch, will start tomorrow. Key-Systems is accepting pre-registrations for the Go Live until tomorrow, 15:00 UTC.

Key-Systems‘ success quote of 95 per cent within the pre-orders during the .XXX Sunrise and Landrush ties in with former successful launches; within the pre-registrations during the Landrush of .ME and the .TEL Sunrise in 2008, the registrar achieved similar high quotes. “The success of the .XXX pre-orders is an impressive evidence for the capacity of our technique and the efficiency of our team“, says Key-Systems’ CEO Alexander Siffrin.

The Go Live of the .XXX TLD starts on December 6, 2011 (17:00 UTC). As of this date .XXX domains can be registered on a first come, first served basis at Key-Systems’ domain portals domaindiscount24 (retail) and RRPproxy (resale). Key-Systems is still accepting pre-registrations until 15:00 UTC on December 6.

All members of the Adult Sponsored Community can register resolving (active) .XXX domain names effective December 6; a validation of the community membership will be required. Registrants who want to secure their names may register .XXX domains defensively; these domains won’t resolve.
