The .XXX domain extension is reserved for those within the adult entertainment industry who are members of the Sponsored Community (SC). Only domains owned by certified members of the Sponsored Community will be allowed to resolve.
.XXX domains can be registered for 1-10 years and are auto-renew only domain names. If the ICM membership ID field is not completed, the ICM registry emails the registrant with instructions on completing the Membership Application Process to verify that they are members of the Sponsored Community and eligible to own a resolving .XXX domain. Domain names will not resolve unless the applicant has completed the Membership Application Process. This email is not sent if you select This domain should not resolve.

The Sponsored Community includes individuals, businesses, entities, and organizations that provide online, sexually-oriented adult entertainment intended for consenting adults or other community members, represent providers, or provide products or services to providers and representatives.
Customers can register .XXX domain names and specify that they do not want them to resolve. Suppose the registrant wants to change the name to a resolving name. In that case, they need to be validated as members of the Sponsored Community and then modify the domain registration with the membership ID.
