I’ve been reading reports that the domain name vatican.xxx has been purchased by an ‘anonymous’ buyer.
Frankly, if true, then this is very incompetent on the part of the Vatican as many other organisations have been preemptively acquiring and registering versions of the new .xxx domain to prevent abuse, but now it may be too late for the Catholic Church.
We know who is holding the domain (ICM Registry), but not who purchased it.
Vatican spokesman Father Federico Lombardi said on Vatican radio:
“This domain is not available because it has been acquired by someone else, but not the Vatican.”
