Joining KINDNS means that your organization publicly commits to following the KINDNS practices and promoting them wherever possible. You can self-assess your DNS operation practice compliance with KINDNS online.
If you follow all the practices, congratulations! You can now fill out the Enrollment Form with your contact information and all additional details about how you achieve the KINDNS practices. This information will only be used for evaluation purposes and will not be shared or disclosed to others. Once we’ve reviewed your form, we’ll get back to you and if everything is in order, we’ll notify you of your acceptance to the program. Your company will be added to the “Supporting Organizations” section of the KINDNS website. You will also receive a welcome note and a KINDNS Compliance badge that you can display on your website or within other content.
If you don’t follow all the practices, don’t worry. We have prepared a few guidelines that can help you implement any of the practices you are not yet compliant with, including the rationale for following each practice and implementation instructions for common DNS software.
Whenever you’re ready, you can self-assess your compliance again.
