.PRO - Professionals


Online Domain Name Extension Directory



Meaning: professional.

Domain Name availability: Members of the medical, legal, accounting and engineering and other professions. Each registrant's identity and professional license information is supposed to be verified against relevant public and third-party databases prior to domain name activation. Domain owners will be required to sign terms of use affirming that these requirements are being met. Defensive registrations are also available for trademark holders.

A loophole has been found in the professional license requirements (see note below).

Notes: All three letter names are reserved.

Loophole: A company, Encirca.com, has purchased two third level names based on their (valid) employment of qualifying professional persons. They have been offering second level .pro names to all who want them for $99. each, with no professional requirements. This has been going on since mid-2005 and the registry has made no move to stop it although it clearly is against the intent of the .pro extension. In May of 2008 an amended agreement with ICANN, the domain governing body, requires yearly certification by the registrant. It is unclear how this will affect domain owners who have purchased domains from Encirca.
