TAYLOR SWIFT HAS purchased the domain names for both TaylorSwift.porn and TaylorSwift.adult before anyone else could.

The number of top-level domains which include .com, .net and .org. are being expanded by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers.

It means domains such as .adult, .porn and .suck are now being added to the mix and, according to CNN Money, certain people have been invited to register these domains before anyone else gets in there.

The 25-year-old bought the names before they became available to the public from 1 June.

It’s reported that the domain can cost companies and public figures up to €2,300.

Microsoft also bought Office.porn and Office.adult.
