Taylor Swift is Buying Up Porn Domains

Starting on June 1st, a bunch of top-level domain names are going to be up for grabs. This includes stuff like “.healthcare” and “.deals,” but also more, uh, specific domains like “.porn,” “.adult,” and even “.sucks” (never let it be said that we aren’t living in an elegant and refined era). This is important news for you if you’re in the web domain business, but also for celebrities like Taylor Swift, who has reportedly bought up domains bearing her name in an effort to get the jump on ne’erdowells who might try to capitalize on, say “TaylorSwift.porn.”

The funny thing here is that Taylor Swift now reportedly owns at least two of these domains – “TaylorSwift.porn” and “TaylorSwift.adult.” What will she do with these domains now that she owns them? We’ll have to wait until this summer to find out, but I’m guessing a quick and tasteful redirect to her actual website might be the answer, or maybe just a video of her scolding people who visited these addresses in the first place.

The article on The Independent here doesn’t say whether Taylor Swift also owns “TaylorSwift.sucks” or “TaylowSwift.healthcare,” but you can get some more pertinent information on this whole situation there anyway.
