Kids Only Domain Takes Three Years To Get 21 Sites

from the gee,-who-would've-thunk-it? dept

More than three years ago, when US politicians set up the “kids-only” domain of, we wondered how many sites would actually bother with it, noting the “chicken and egg” problem the domain faced. We now have an answer. Three years into the experiment, there are a grand total of 21 sites hosted in the special domain. Yes: twenty one. A thriving community. It probably doesn’t help that to host there you have to pay about $400 a year for registration and “content review” vs. $7 or so to register a .com. Somehow, we’re confident that .xxx won’t face the same problem.
