.KIDS TLD Officially delegated to the Root Zone
Happy Children’s Day from DotKids Foundation to all our young friends in Hong Kong and Taiwan!

April 4th is a day that celebrates kids! This Children's Day, we're especially excited to share our commemoration of the historical delegation of the '.kids' domain to the Internet's root system by ICANN! This means the space dedicated for kids on the Internet is born, and that you will soon be able to choose domain names such as www.hello.kids for your website to reach kids and parents around the world.
