Taylor Swift Buys Domain Name TaylorSwift.porn

You can't take TaylorSwift.adult either.

Taylor Swift knew these domain names were trouble when they walked in.

The singer's team has purchased the web addresses TaylorSwift.porn and TaylorSwift.adult, prior to them becoming available to the public on June 1, according to CNN. It is unclear what she plans to do with them, if anything.

The move was prompted by nonprofit group Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers continuing to expand the number of generic top-level domains, beyond such popular ones as .com and .net.

A number of controversial domain names will be available in June, but public figures and companies are currently being given a window of time in which to register them before anyone else can. 

This means that, in addition to Swift preemptively snatching up the sexy-sounding addresses, Microsoft Office has also registered Office.porn and Office.adult. 

By the way, another web suffix becoming available is .sucks, with domains costing up to $2,500 to register, Ad Week reports. This is good news if you've been recently wishing that the Internet would offer a little more negativity.
