Kids.us Domain

By Deane Barker on August 30, 2003

Play, Learn, and Surf…with Kids.us!: Good for them. Just wait for the wave of IE plug-ins that will lock the browser down to this domain only.

“Finally, there’s an Internet domain that parents and children can trust for educational and appropriate online fun: kids.us! All content on affiliated sites is thoroughly and regularly screened and monitored, making kids.us the most ‘youth-friendly’ space on the Web.”

I had no idea about this until now:

“On December 4, 2002, President George W. Bush signed into law the Dot Kids Implementation and Efficiency Act of 2002. This Act requires that NeuStar, ‘as the administrator of the .US country code top-level domain (ccTLD), establish a kids.us domain to serve as a haven for material that promotes positive experiences for children and families using the Internet, provides a safe online environment for children, and helps to prevent children from being exposed to harmful material on the Internet.’”

Registration beings September 4.
