Why .sex?

Use a .sex domain name for your adult website

The .sex domain ending was created for adult websites and is easily understood by internet users around the world. Buying a .sex domain name is an effective way to attract an international audience and gain higher visibility. If the intended topic for .sex domain names isn't obvious, it's also not restrictive in terms of types of content that you can put on your .sex website: use yours for videos, photos, chats, and more.

A .sex domain is a good alternative to .xxx

Relatively recently added, .sex is a an alternative to .xxx, which is becoming saturated in terms of domain names registered. A .sex domain name can be registered by individuals as well as businesses with some connection to the pornographic industry, provided they don't break any laws. In many countries, for example, adult sites need to display a disclaimer that minors are not permitted to enter.

A .sex domain name is available in a few clicks

Anyone can register a .sex domain name: you can register or transfer your .sex domain name in a few clicks without any particular restrictions or conditions. At Gandi, you can also add hosting that adapts to the needs of your project as well as complimentary services like emails and SSL certificates.
