.PRO Domains Now Available to All

Brand Yourself Online Like a Pro

Dublin, Ireland – November 16, 2015 – Global registry leader Afilias plc announced that beginning today, .PRO isan unrestricted Top Level Domain open to all registrants.  That means that everyone is now eligible to register a domain name ending .PRO, such as afilias.pro or yourname.pro. Registration is now available at all .PRO accredited registrars (http://registry.pro/find-a-registrar).

No one wants to work with an amateur when they can work with a pro.  That’s why a .PRO address is so important to your marketing.  If you are a pro at your craft, whether it is web design or landscaping, you need to let Internet searchers know in a quick and easy manner.  A .PRO address will make the right first impression.

Since 2002, .PRO has been the mark of professionals on the web.  .PRO has over 120,000 registrations worldwide including professionals as varied as engineers and lawyers.   However, despite demand from registrants and registrars alike, .PRO names have historically been denied to professionals from a wide range of fields such as policemen, firefighters, journalists, programmers, artists, writers, and many others.  The .PRO registry has opened the domain to a much wider range of registrants who want to brand themselves a “pro” with their Internet address.

“The very name .PRO communicates professionalism of the highest order,” said Roland LaPlante, CMO at Afilias.  “Now pros of all types can quickly and easily communicate their expertise in their email and web addresses with a .PRO name.  Beginning today, .PRO names can be registered without the hassle of additional paperwork, making .PRO easy for registrars to service and easy for registrants to buy” he added.
