Will you be too sexy for .sexy?

Kevin Murphy, May 10, 2013, 16:35:18 (UTC), It's Friday

Uniregistry is planning to implement strict sexiness restrictions in its forthcoming .sexy gTLD, according to a fake press release we’ve just received.

Uniregistry, the portfolio gTLD applicant run by domainer Frank Schilling, is the only applicant for .sexy.

The company lied in the press release:

Upon applying to register for a .sexy domain, registrants will be required to affirmatively answer the certified statement “Are you sexy, and do you know it?”

In an enhancement to existing mobile phone verification systems, registrants will be required to input a PIN sent to their mobile phone, and attach a picture of themselves to the reply message.

Any registrants deemed “too sexy for this TLD” will be provided with suitable alternative domains, such as .blackfriday, while those not qualifying as sexy enough will be directed to .help.

Uniregistry’s Amanda Fessenden will “personally inspect photos of every registrant and strictly enforce the ‘no mullets’ provision of the 100% sexy policy”, Uniregistry made up.

    The joke is on all responsible netizens.

    Cluttering the webspace with ill thought-out, prankster-minded gTLDs is tragic, not comical.
