- For the first time a registry will provide free malware scanning with the purchase of every domain - - Cost and time savings for consumers and domain owners -

ICM Registry, the company behind .XXX, today announced a landmark partnership with one of the world's largest security technology companies in a deal worth $8m. The deal means that for the first time, websites will be scanned for malware daily and this cost will be underwritten by the domain name registry.

The integrated service will be automatically included with every .XXX domain name registration, meaning every .XXX domain will be scanned for vulnerabilities such as SQL injection, browser exploits and phishing sites, reputational analysis and malware. The service uses technology based on in-depth expertise, drawing on a global network of 100 countries, and internal research and systems that are updated regularly with the latest threats and discoveries.    

Stuart Lawley, CEO of ICM Registry said: “Malware is a growing issue on the internet, with the number of websites hosting malware increasing dramatically year-on-year. This partnership is a milestone for .XXX and will help create a safer internet for everyone to enjoy. For the first time we are offering an automatic malware scanning service with every .XXX domain name registration. This has never been done before and further supports our aim to create a clearly defined web address for adult entertainment, as free as possible from fraud or malicious computer viruses.”

Webmasters will also have the potential to make savings by not buying their own malware software for .xxx domains, which in turn also frees up space on their servers.    

“For consumers who wish to browse adult entertainment sites, it provides reassurance they are automatically protected from the risk of viruses, hackers, exploits and malware,” Lawley continues. “They can feel confident that the .XXX adult entertainment websites they are visiting are safe and secure. This increases webmasters ability to offer a socially responsible and safe place for their clients, helping to build trust, credibility and loyalty online.”
