ICM Registry operates the .xxx (pronounced "dot triple-X") sponsored top-level domain registry, which is designed for pornography. The ICM Registry operates from Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. It is owned by Minds + Machines Group Limited.
In 2005, the Bush Administration pressured ICANN not to adopt a .xxx because of increasing concerns about the impact of pornography on families and children.
On 18 March 2011, the ICANN Board voted to approve the .xxx sTLD, which later went into operation on 15 April 2011.
On 12 April 2012, the ICM Registry announced their applications for additional sponsored top-level domains .SEX, .PORN and .ADULT.
