SO THAT PERVERTS CAN'T
You won't see anything dodgy on TaylorSwift.porn when new internet domains go on sale in June
Fakers with aspirations to fake are going to have a try a little harder: Taylor Swift has apparently bought up new porn domains in her name.
As of June 1 anyone can buy a .porn or .sucks domain, which may make blocking sites easier for parents, and according to CNN, a select group of brands and celebrities are currently being allowed to buy theirs in advance.
Swift has reportedly bought TaylorSwift.porn and TaylorSwift.adult, while according to Stuart Lawley, CEO of ICM Registry which manages the .porn and .adult domains, while Microsoft has bought up Office.adult and Office.porn.
In 2011, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) decided to expand the variety of website suffixes to be more relevant to the person typing in the web address.
Alongside the familiar .com and .uk will be specific areas such as .healthcare and .london, as well as the new porn and sucks site extensions.
There is currently a "sunrise" period in which stars and companies can buy up domains in their name at a slightly reduced price, whether to redirect from their official sites, or to prevent internet trolls from squatting in them, posting undesirable content, or making money from the association.
The .sucks domain has also been set up for criticism, as well as premium sites including life.sucks and divorce.sucks.
"dotSucks is designed to help consumers find their voices and allow companies to find the value in criticism," the dotSucks website says, with the rather pointed addendum: "Each dotSucks domain has the potential to become an essential part of every organisation’s customer relationship management program."
With that taken care of, Swift can hopefully return to posting more pictures like this.
