Vatican is safe from .XXX

The domain Vatican.xxx has not been registered by a pornographic company and was previously removed by the ICM registry prior to the public launch of the domain name earlier this month. Vatican.xxx is on the permanent reserve list, in other words no one will ever be able to purchase that domain name.  The new domain names were only recently released to the public last month and had several sunrise phases in order to have companies and trademark holders register in advance. The Vatican spokesman last week spoke too soon last week and Vatican.xxx will never make an appearance on the world wide web.  To read further please click here.
