Frequently Asked Adult Webmaster Questions:

How to label your website as “Restricted To Adults” (RTA)

For wordpress websites, you can download our plugin which add the RTA header to all pages or your website or if you would prefer to do it without a plugin you can add the following code to your themes functions.php file to add the RTA header response and meta tags to all pages of your website:


add_action( ‘send_headers’, ‘rta_restricted_to_adults_add_header_RTA’ );
// ADD RTA to response header
function rta_restricted_to_adults_add_header_RTA() {header( ‘Rating: RTA-5042-1996-1400-1577-RTA’ );}
// Add RTA meta tag
function rta_restricted_to_adults_meta_tag() {
echo ‘<meta name=”RATING” content=”RTA-5042-1996-1400-1577-RTA” />’;}

Once added (or plugin installed), you can verify the header has been added by doing a header response check here: Webconfs.com Header Check – you should see a header titled ‘Rating’ with a value of ‘RTA-5042-1996-1400-1577-RTA’ or view the source code of any page on your site and look for the Rating meta tag (<meta name=”RATING” content=”RTA-5042-1996-1400-1577-RTA” />).

What are .xxx domain names?

.xxx domain names were built for adult websites and have a couple of powerful uses:

  1. Letting people find X-rated content more easily.
  2. Letting people avoid X-rated content more easily.

Dot xxx can spice up your branding or protect your reputation.

If you’re looking to register .xxx – Grab that .xxx domain extension as quick as you can. When it comes to adult entertainment, one of the most important things is name recognition with the right buzzwords — and you don’t want to get scooped by a competitor.

But say you aren’t in the adult industry. It’s hard to imagine any scenario where you’d buy .xxx for your online presence, but we’ve got a pretty good one for you: Brand protection. If protecting your brand, product or business name is essential to what you do, get the .xxx domain to prevent anyone else from associating it with your name.

How do I use a .xxx domain?

If you plan to launch a website using your .xxx domain, you must become a member of the Sponsored Community. The membership process is fast, easy and free. Just confirm your contact information and get a membership ID, which also works for any other .xxx domains you registered — no need to repeat the process for each one.

However, if you don’t plan to launch a website using your .xxx domain name, you don’t need to become a member of the Sponsored Community. Simply register .xxx and be on your way.

Don’t let your .xxx domain slip away.

It doesn’t matter why you’re planning to register .xxx — just do it soon. Otherwise, someone might register it first and claim your niche in the world of adult entertainment — or use your wholesome, family-friendly brand to drive traffic to their not-so-wholesome site. Either way, get your .xxx domain name today.

What is offshore hosting?

Offshore hosting is nothing more than the concept of hosting your website, data or application at a data center location that is not your current physical origin. Offshore hosting is often associated with the need to host or promote things that are illegitimate, forbidden or banned in the origin countries.

Another popular reason people look for off shore hosting is to take advantage of hopefully less stringent DMCA (“Digital Millennium Copyright Act” of 1998) take down enforcement as the DMCA is a United States law, and therefore less weight may be placed on the request when received by overseas providers.

Example of Off Shore hosting: If your located in India but choose to locate your website files in Amsterdam (in an effort to avoid India’s restrictions on pornography distribution) that would be an example of off-shore hosting.

Our complete list of data centers is listed above – you can choose to host your website or application at the data center of your choice when setting up your account or at any time through your hosting cpanel.

Adult WordPress Website Security Tips

WordPress is a very popular content management system that can be used for adult websites – however it’s popularity (in 2018, estimated to power over 172 million websites worldwide) has the disadvantage of making it a target for hackers.  There are a many ways that a hacker can attempt to gain access to your adult but the two most common ways for someone to attempt to hack a WordPress site are:
1. Guessing a password of any Admin account (can be via brute force, or other methods to obtain)
2. Exploiting known vulnerability’s of old versions of WP plugins.

However, despite the fact that WordPress is a target for hackers, following a few simple best practices can ensure you are able to recover if someone does hack your site and that you will never lose your sites content (that you have worked so hard to create).

  • Keep your site up to date (WordPress Core and All Plugins).
    • Very important should be done weekly – every time you water your plants update your WordPress Websites.
    • Detected vulnerability’s are often fixed by the plugin authors when detected but if you don’t update your plugin you could unknowingly have a vulnerability in your site that a hacker could exploit.
  • Don’t share passwords and don’t use simple (less than 8) character passwords or passwords that contain common phrases
    • As with a lot of things, the biggest vulnerability in any system is often related to the human factor.  People don’t update passwords every three months, people re-use passwords on multiple websites, and people still use common passwords like ‘open1234’ or ‘password’.  Discipline yourself to have good password practices and that will greatly improve the security of not only your website but other digital assets in your life.
    • If you need to give someone else access to your site, create a new user for them.  If the access is only needed temporarily, be sure to delete the user once access is no longer needed.
  • Make website backups of the code base and the database on a regular basis and maintain access to these backups for at least a year.
    • If your website ever gets hacked – the easiest solution is to wipe it clean and restore it from an unhacked backup copy.  You can then fix the hack and it is a lot easier and quicker process than trying to go through the code base to remove all traces of the virus.
  • Cloudflare is a free CDN (that is adult website friendly) that you can add to your website to provide a free SSL certificate and DDOS protection – highly recommended by us.
  • There are many free WordPress plugins available that can help to improve your sites security, automate backups with Dropbox, and many more.  Below is a list of our recommended WordPress Plugins:
    • WordFence Security – Wordfence includes an endpoint firewall and malware scanner that were built from the ground up to protect WordPress.  Free version of plugin does a lot of beneficial things.
    • UpdraftPlus WordPress Backup Plugin – Backup into the cloud directly to Dropbox, Google Drive, Amazon S3 (or compatible), UpdraftVault, Rackspace Cloud, FTP, DreamObjects, Openstack Swift, and email.
    • SEO: Rank Math – Not a security plugin but since we have a list of recommended WP plugins going on I felt compelled to include this one as well.If you always felt that you could do more with your websites search engine optimization but never seem to have the time or patience to learn – then Rank Math is what you’re looking for.  We highly recommend this Search engine optimization plugin for the host of intelligent features that it brings to your websites SEO capabilities. The smart automation features give you the power of an entire SEO team with just a few clicks. A well thought out design, powerful features, and years of development make Rank Math a game-changing SEO plugin that will level the SEO playing field for adult websites of all types.
