.kids, new child-friendly TLD

The new .kids domain extension has started its Sunrise Phase, and as always, you can register it at Openprovider!

There are no special requirements to register a .kids domain. Anyone can register and use this domain extension. Domain names can be within 1 and 63 characters in length, and it is possible to register a domain for a period between 1 and 10 years. 

Sunrise registrations have started on August 11, 2022, for trademarks registered in the Trademark Clearing House. We are a TMCH agent, so you can have your trademark registered with us using your Reseller Control Panel.

This new domain extension is a great choice for websites about products, services, and infotainment for children, as well as for websites by parents or children's rights organizations. Don’t miss this opportunity and start selling this TLD with us.

Changes to .UK lifecycle

On Sep 13, 2022, Nominet will apply changes to the 2nd and 3rd level .UK domains, creating a new “pendingDelete” period of 5 days at the end of the life cycle.

The main difference with the current situation will be that, once the quarantine expires, the domain will be inactive for 5 days without an option to be restored, before it is released. With this move, the registry will standardize the domain's life cycle to make it more similar to gTLDs.
