Nescom Systems launched its new “user friendly” Adult Cyberspace (ACS) Network online pornography service this week, which can only be accessed using its own proprietary Web browser.
Timon Haringa, the Canadian company’s chief technology officer, said there were currently more than 40,000 adult sites on the Internet, and he anticipated that thousands of adult Web sites would open a site on the subscription based Network over the next six months.
Jackie Barnard, vice president of marketing, added: "Web masters are flocking to our Adult Cyberspace Network because we have the potential to bring them a much larger client base and audience than they can attract on their own, significantly increasing their revenues.”
But users will not be able to access the Network using a conventional browser, so that children and adults who did not want to see nudity can not accidentally enter the site. Users need to download the company’s own browser, which is available free at its Web site.
Haringa claimed ACS Network was the "first commercial, independent Internet sub network in the world," and would use its own domain name system and address protocol. Its address will be acs://domain/index.html as opposed to the conventional http://www.domain.com/index.html.
He added: "Most adult Web masters have taken their customers for granted. They focus on increasing traffic and revenues at the expense of providing a high quality online surfing experience. In contrast, our free Web browser software provides a consistent user friendly interface across Web sites, without annoying pop up windows or other distractions for pleasurable browsing."
And Mark MacGillivray, managing director of H&M Consulting, said: "I think the prospects for any adult entertainment online are good because they're the only ones making any money. As an industry, nobody is making money online except pornography. Also, Nescom seems to have solved the critical access problem. That would take away the only aversion."
But he added: "The only downside is that an entire community of the same topic is going to get old quick. Having an entire network dedicated to pornography, they're going to have to slice the categories pretty thin. Though, I'm not sure porn customers are all that concerned about that."
