DotKids Foundation, registry operator for the new “.kids” top-level-domain (TLD), is pleased to announce the commencement of registration for the .kids community TLD. .Kids is the first TLD dedicated to the best interests of kids, so that parents can rest assured that their kids safety online is taken to heart.
This week I chat with Edmon Chung. Edmon is the CEO of .Asia and a member of the ICANN Board of Directors. He’s busy getting ready for the launch of .kids. On today’s show, I ask Edmon why it has taken so long to launch the domain, who it’s for, and what his organization is doing to prevent content not suitable for kids from showing up on .kids domains.
From clothing labels to media groups, .kids domain name will be a top choice for popular brands. Fun, catchy and meaningful, .kids domains can be part of a simple and effective solution to raise life-long brand loyalty now.
Hello! DotAsia is excited to introduce .kids – the only child-centric TLD on the Internet with kids’ best interests at heart. We are proud to fully support the launch and operation of .kids for the global children’s rights and welfare community.
Today, young people everywhere spend a significant portion of their daily life on the Internet. UNICEF estimates at the global level that, “one child in three is an Internet user, and that one in three Internet users is a child under 18 years of age.” Increasingly, and accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic, kids are growing up doing homework, learning, playing, socializing and making friends online.
