9. It will give them more than 50 categories of content in the easiest-to-use Parental Controls solution available.

8. It will automatically protect them from Internet-scale botnets and certain types of malware, like Conficker.

7. It will let them customize the block pages with a household-specific image and message so parents can communicate to their kids why a site is blocked.

5. It’s trusted by more than 25,000 schools, including some of the U.S.’s largest districts, today to keep kids safe online. (What better endorsement than that?)

3. The price affordable enough to gift to multiple people.

2. It’s a gift that gives for an entire year.

We’ve made it easy to give OpenDNS Deluxe. Here’s how Gift of Safe works: You purchase a one-year subscription (valid from purchase date until Dec. 31, 2010) to the OpenDNS Deluxe Family Pack on for as many people as you wish.
