Agency moves toward .xxx for porn sites

BRUSSELS (WKOW) -- You could soon be able to identify a pornographic website just by looking at its URL.

The global Internet oversight agency says it made a mistake in rejecting the change three years ago.

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, or ICANN, says it is in the process of registering the .xxx domain.

The ".xxx" internet address was first proposed in 2000. ICANN has rejected it three times since then.
