Come June, .porn and .adult Web URLs will be available to the general public, just like .xxx sites went live in 2011. But certain people and companies with trademarks were allowed to snap up .porn or .adult domain names early, and Taylor Swift registered both taylorswift.porn and taylorswift.adult.

"It is unclear what she plans to do with them, if anything," notes the Hollywood Reporter. But no, the singer's probably not considering expanding into the adult film business; CNN Money notes that she likely bought the URLs to avoid someone else starting up a Taylor Swift-themed porn website.

Swift also recently got the last laugh at hackers over their nude pic claims. Back in 2011, the nonprofit Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers offered just 22 "generic top-level domains" for sale (think .com, .net, and the like); today, new Web suffixes are released each month, and there are currently more than 547 available.

Also taking advantage of the early so-called "sunrise period": Microsoft, which registered office.porn and office.adult. Come June 1, "it's first to the buzzer," explains the CEO of ICM Registry, which operates the new X-rated domains.

Also up for grabs June 1: .sucks URLs, which will be operated by a different registry company—and it may cost a trademarked entity up to $2,499 per year to register and thus safeguard its own .sucks domain, Marketing Land reports.

(Meanwhile, one domain that didn't get registered by the famous person of the same name? Tedcruz.com.)
