. Turns 10 Years Old!


Today, February 26, the Cyrillic domain . (dot DETI, which means children) turns 10 years old. The first website addresses in the domain were registered in 2014. Hundreds of websites dedicated mostly to teenagers and children, along with their parents and mentors, have been published since then.

The Catalog of the best resources with an address in . is published on the official website of the domain. Currently, the Catalog contains about 150 resources of various topics and purposes. These are educational projects and applications, resources on safe use of the Internet, health and family leisure, online stores of children's goods and other commercial projects aimed at new Internet users, websites of kindergartens, schools, art centers, sports sections, charitable foundations, competitions, children's media.

Addresses in . are registered in Russian. That is very convenient, because the website address can literally be 100% identical to the name of the organization or project. This means that there will be no problems with transliteration and the use of complex letters like , , , ; that an address can be quite long and still be easy to remember. In addition, the ending of the address . will immediately tell the visitor the specialization of the resource, Irina Danelia, Deputy Director of the Smart Internet Foundation, which acts as the administrator of the ., said. Let me remind you that the mission of the . is not only to combine high-quality Internet content on one website, thus developing the children's Runet, but also to improve the digital culture of children and the youth.

Another important task of the . is to make childrens online stay comfortable and safe. Countering malware on websites operating in the domain is carried out by monitoring unwanted content, which operates around the clock, 365 days a year.

Registering the main or additional address for a website in . means becoming part of the positive space of the Runet, participating in the development of online safety islands and filling the Internet with useful content. This is very easy to do by contacting one of the registrars accredited in the domain: RU-CENTER, or Webnames.
