These Porn Websites Change Domain Names To Keep Operating In India

As two of these banned porn websites, Pornhub and Redtube have found a way to return the Indian market. More notably, watchers don’t need to use any trick to dodge the above ban whenever they want to pornographic videos.

Although the Indian government has issued a ban on porn websites, global portals all over the world have found an effective solution that allows them to keep providing pornographic videos legally to Indian watchers via computers and smartphones.

Up to 857 websites that allegedly had “immoral and indecent” content were banned in India.

The Department of Telecommunications recently sent a letter to the Internet service providers concerning banning porn websites because the content posted on these sites violate the Article 19(2) of the Constitution, according to the provisions in Section 79(3)(b) in the Information Technology Act, 2000.

As two of these banned websites, Pornhub and Redtube have found a way to return the Indian market. More notably, watchers don’t need to use any trick to dodge the above ban whenever they want to pornographic videos.

‘.org’ is the popular domain name extension of almost all of the non-profit organizations. Meanwhile, ‘.net’ is mainly used to indicate 'network' including email, internet, as well as networking service providers.

Because the Indian government has just banned the domain names with the ‘.com’ extension, watchers can still avoid this ban and access these porn websites on their devices. Using a VPN (virtual private network), proxies or alternative browsers is completely unnecessary.
