Porn sites are to be allowed to use a ".XXX" domain name after a vote on Friday at ICANN, the Internet's governing body.

ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, had debated the possibility of creating a suffix especially for porn sites for over ten years.

The suffix is expected to make it easier to filter out porn sites and prevent children from accessing them.
