Facebook gets domain name

Social network registers two Facebook sex domains.

Last year Facebook sued FriendFinder Networks over its web site, ultimately resulting in a transfer of the domain name to Facebook.

Now the company has registered two similar domains, and The two domains were previously owned by a registrant called “Netud” in France.

You may be asking yourself, isn’t .pro for professionals only?

I guess you weren’t aware that there’s a profession called FacebookofSex.

The official qualifications for .pro include:

- Provides professional services
- Admitted to or licensed by a government certification body or jurisdictional licensing entity recognized by a governmental body that regularly verifies the accuracy of its data
- In good standing with the licensing authority

And technically, as a registrant, you must be able to provide a profession-specific information such as license number.

So did the previous registrant of or Facebook itself provide their pornographers license numbers?

Nah. Back in 2005 registrars and the registry found clever ways around these rules.
