.Pro Registrations Grow Five-Fold in Five Months

RegistryPro has seen registrations of .Pro soar since the company relaunched the top-level domain name (TLD) under expanded registration guidelines from ICANN.

CHICAGO, Illinois, January 27, 2009RegistryPro, the exclusive operator of the .Pro top-level domain (TLD) on the Internet, announced today that it has seen explosive growth in the total number of .Pro domain name registrations thanks in part to expanded eligibility guidelines and the work of partner registrars. .Pro is the first and only domain name extension catered to professionals and professional entities worldwide.

“We effectively made .Pro available to tens of millions of professionals and entities worldwide,” said Catherine Sigmar, general manager of RegistryPro. “And, we have had some excellent partners like Network Solutions join us. Given Network Solutions’ position in the top echelon of registrars worldwide, they are in a unique position to maximize the penetration of the .Pro TLD.”

On September 8, 2008, RegistryPro relaunched .Pro to the world under expanded ICANN guidelines. The new guidelines allow virtually any professional in nearly any country to register a .Pro domain name. At the same time, Network Solutions, a pioneer of domain name registration services, provided a major push for the registration surge.

“Network Solutions is dedicated to being the leading registrar for the .Pro domain,” said Sean Kaine, director of domain name services product management for Network Solutions. « We’ve put a lot of effort behind it, and we’re delighted to be seeing such great results.”

The highly anticipated .Pro relaunch in September was the culmination of a four-month rollout that began on May 14, 2008 with the announcement that ICANN had approved new registration guidelines for the TLD.
