Go Daddy, the largest seller of internet domain names, has become the latest registrar to sign up to sell .#*$! (triple x) addresses.

The company joins about 50 other registrars that have so far been approved by .#*$! (triple x) manager ICM Registry and accredited by ICANN to sell the names.

"A large number of our customers have spoken... and there is a demand for the controversial new domain name extension for both brand protection purposes and for new names," Go Daddy CEO Bob Parsons said in a statement.

Based on the way that the domain business has changed, if Godaddy is not onboard as a main registrar for any new TLD, then that TLD is going to find it difficult to sell to the US/Canadian market. But Godaddy would sell anything and #*$! sells. :)

Does anyone know whether country names are going to be auctioned? or are they going to be reserved such as:
