Taylor Swift has bought all porn domains with her name

According to a CNN report, American singer Taylor Swift has recently purchased all the porn domains which feature her name. As a result of the move, Taylor now owns porn domain sites such as TaylorSwift.porn and TaylorSwift.adult, among others.

Swift’s move to purchase the porn domains with her name is an evident effort by the singer to minimize the chance of Internet trolls – pornographers wishing to capitalize on her name, brand and image - doing something sleazy with domains which bear Taylor’s name.

Swift’s decision to hoard the registered names comes ahead of a forthcoming move by non-profit Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to offer controversial new generic top-level domains (gTLDs) – including domains like .porn, .sucks and others - for purchase to the public on June 1.

As per the CNN report, Swift's team is among "a select group of people and companies" which have been given access to some controversial new gTLDs before they are made available to the public for purchase.

About Swift’s purchase of porn domains with her name, a GossipCop report said: “The move is not to prevent potential Swift nudes from being posted as no such pictures exist, but to stop her highly-trafficked name from being used by those who want to make money off online porn in general.”
