.PRO Domains from an ICANN Accredited Domain Registrar
.PRO Domain History & Purpose
The .PRO domain name is a generic top-level domain in the Domain Name System of the Internet. Its name is derived from professional, indicating its intended use by certified professionals.
In October 2000, Jason Drummond came up with the concept for a new top level domain name (TLD) and established RegistryPro to jointly bid with Register.com for .PRO. In May 2002, RegistryPro signed its contract with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the organisation that administers global domain names, under which it will handle the registrations for the new top level domain (TLD) .PRO.
The domain was originally launched in June 2004 with registrations restricted to lawyers, accountants, physicians and engineers in France, Canada, Germany, UK and the US. It was later made available worldwide to all government-certified professionals.
As of November 16, 2015, the .PRO TLD is open for registration to anyone.
.PRO Domain Registration & Reselling Services
Many companies doing business on the Internet prefer the .PRO extension to represent their expertise online. You can also register a .PRO domain name with Resellers Panel for up to ten years. You can use this domain name for any of our services: Domain Reselling; Free Resellers Program, Hosting package under the Free Resellers Program, cPanel-Reseller Program; VPS (Virtual Private Server); Dedicated Servers and Semi-Dedicated Servers.
(Note that most people feel more secure and comfortable when they see the company behind the domain names has registered for 10 years thus thinking in perspective). All you have to do is fill in the desired name and click GO to see if the domain name is available for registration.
If it is you will be able to go ahead and own this domain name.
Note that if you are asked to transfer the domain name this means that you either are not the owner of the domain name since it was registered by someone else, or that you will be changing registrars thus transferring the domain name to Resellers Panel.
