Digital education is becoming increasingly important for schools. The Digitalpakt Schule (Digital Pact for Schools) is not the first time that online-capable devices have been brought into schools. Whiteboards, tablets, smartphones and desktop computers have become indispensable in the classroom. But many students also take free Wi-Fi in the schoolyard for granted – whether for studying and doing homework during free periods or for playing games, WhatsApp, Telegram, Snapchat, Facebook and Instagram.
Schools that offer their students access to the Internet also have a responsibility for the content that children and young people are exposed to on the worldwide web. JusProgDNS helps open up the opportunities of the Internet to minors while protecting them from the dangers.
Protection for any Internet infrastructure in schools
JusProgDNS is a youth protection program from JusProg e.V. that can be used by schools from small to large and can be used in pretty much any infrastructure. Whether in an elementary school with a Fritzbox and a few computers in the classroom or in a junior high school, high school or other secondary school with an extensive network and fiber connection – the JusProgDNS Internet filter is easy to install.
As a network administrator in the school, you only need to change the name server in the DSL box, router or network server and the minors will be protected. Thereby you choose the age level suitable for your school from 6, from 12, from 16 years. After registration with JusProgDNS you can additionally enable or block websites. You only need to enter the fixed IP address of your school for identification or use our DynDNS service for dynamic IP addresses.
The JusProgDNS Internet filter is available for schools at cost price.
Child and youth protection in schools must not fail because of money and tight budgets and difficult formalities for schools. Therefore JusProg e.V. provides the JusProgDNS youth protection program for schools at cost price.
As a non-profit association we have to see that we get our costs financed – especially the very substantial server costs, we have to constantly expand our server cluster with new machines due to the rapidly increasing usage of JusProgDNS in order to be able to continue to offer a performant and reliable service. That’s why we have changed our formerly free service for new schools to premium – this is how we finance the data center.
In short, schools can secure the Internet for the Sus for little money. See box below.
JusProgDNS and also the daily maintenance of the JusProg filter list, software development and support are otherwise financed by the members of the non-profit association JusProg e.V., including many well-known companies of the German Internet industry.
JusProgDNS is free of advertising and follows strict data protection guidelines, the server locations are in Germany. We only store data that is indispensable for the operation of the youth protection program and anonymize and cumulate surfing logs immediately. Third parties do not receive any data from JusProg e.V..
Cost sharing for schools?
As a non-profit organization, we do not want to and must not make a profit, and we do not want child and youth protection to fail because of the budget. Our services are therefore free of charge.
Nevertheless, due to the rapidly increasing usage, we would charge a contribution to the server costs, so that we can continue to offer JusProgDNS in the usual quality and performance. For orientation: We calculate internally from 5 euros per school and month in necessary hardware costs, for medium and large schools and especially use of JusProgDNS also in the Schüler:innen-WLAN it is somewhat more.
If you would like to use our Premium service and you are able to do so, please write to us using the contact form or send us the completed order form right away, which you can download from the premium page.
JusProgDNS is recognized as a non-profit organization and can issue donation receipts and also invoices. Since JusProgDNS is the only service of its kind in Germany that has legal recognition (according to § 11 JMStV) and is also a non-profit organization, it has a unique selling point that may facilitate the formalities of a tender.
