BluePrint Data today announced today the administrator for the .US country-code top-level domain, NeuStar, Inc, has selected it as the Content Manager for the Kids.us domain space. The partnership will secure content registered under the kids.us domain.
The kids.us domain was launched by NeuStar as a result of the “Dot Kids Implementation and Efficiency Act of 2002”, otherwise known as the kids.us Act. President Bush signed a bill requiring that a domain be implemented to serve as a safe haven for Internet material that promotes positive experiences for children and their families.
NeuStar and BluePrint Data have teamed to ensure that the websites children are experiencing online are safe and age appropriate. BluePrint Data operates a parental control software system exclusively based on human reviews by trained and certified Website content specialists. It is the most thorough and effective method for screening online content, more reliable than the automated technology currently in use by blocking and filtering companies. BluePrint Data’s trained and certified Web content review specialists have reviewed web sites that comprise over 800,000,000 URLs/Web pages making the BluePrint Data database of safe websites the largest in the world.
NeuStar's Director of Business Development, Keith Drazek stated, “NeuStar is extremely pleased to team with BluePrint Data, who demonstrates a legacy of creating and refining technology and systems to keep the Web safe for children. The BluePrint Data reviewers, technologies, and experience in Web site content are a tremendous benefit and asset to the kids.us space. Selecting them as the Content Manager strengthens NeuStar’s ability to maintain the kids.us space in the safest manner possible.”
BluePrint Data’s CEO Bob Dahlstrom stated, “We are dedicated to making the Internet a better place for children and families. Partnering with NeuStar aids us in fulfilling our mission of providing the highest level of Internet content protection to children and families. Together with NeuStar we can proactively help parents, educators, and communities make kids.us a secure, enjoyable online experience.”
