Pre-Register for the New, Improved, and More Open .PRO! Skip to main.

RegistryPro, the official registry operator of the generic TLD .PRO, will be launching a new and improved version of .PRO domains starting November 17, 2011.  Registration is now open to virtual all professions and activation is now immediate.  For professionals thinking about getting a new .PRO domain, pre-registration starts at October 4, 2011 at 10:00 UTC. And now with PRE-REGISTRATION PRICING ARE AT OUR LOWEST PRICE EVER for this TLD.  Here is a small segment of the official .PRO release:


RegistryPro wil make .PRO, the exclusive TLD for Professionals, more widely available to registrants who want to use the extension to create or enhance their online identities.  To facilitate this, changes have made to the latest version of .PRO.  The cumbersome registration process and delayed activation of domains names are no longer an issue.  The PRO data collection process has been revolutionized and registrants are now able to register and use their .PRO Domains instantly!

The professional data required on registration to activate a name is reduced to one field: Profession.  This field is required to create 2nd level names, and all 2nd level names will become active immediately upon registration.  Additional information may still be needed from the registrant if their name is selected for random monitoring and sampling.

Please note that the Registrant Contact is considered the holder of the professional credential.  The Registrant Contact name and address will be used in the verification process in conjunction with the professional data submitted with the domain name.

Currently the registry manages a total of 114,000 Domains worldwide.  With this newly revolutionized upgrade .PRO will become available to many more worldwide.  If you are a "Professional" by a certified body, then why not show it and pre-register your .PRO today.
