Suspension of Kids.us TLD

On June 27, 2012, the National Telecommunications and Information Agency (NTIA) of the US Government determined that the kids.us domain is no longer serving its intended purpose as per the Dot Kids Implementation and Efficiency Act of 2002.  http://www.ntia.doc.gov/files/ntia/publications/ustld_27_jun_2012_mod_012.pdf
