.Pro Registrations Grow Five-Fold in Five Months

Registry pro logoFollowing the relaunch of the .pro TLD with expanded registration guidelines approved by ICANN, Registry.pro has announced a five-fold increase in registrations since September 2008.

The changes in registry guidelines allow virtually any professional in nearly any country to register a .pro domain name. Another reason for the surge in registrations was the work with registry partner Network Solutions, who at the same time provided a major push for the gTLD.

“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.”

“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.”

More information on .pro domain names is available from the RegistryPro website at registrypro.pro.
