Are you a .PRO yet?

Choosing a great domain name for your business or personal website is critical for success in the cyber world. Typical criteria that people use are memorability, word length, multi-lingual acceptance & the domain extensions such as COM, NET etc.

Talking about Domain Name extensions, they can be broadly classified into Generic domain extensions such as COM/NET & country level extensions such as .IN. Business customers typically purchase domain extensions based on geography or customer relevance. But there is a definite need for Professionals to carve out their own niche online. Having a domain extension dedicated to Professionals would be a great proposition 🙂

Presenting to you a .PRO domain extension.

.PRO is a top-level domain exclusively reserved for use by licensed Business/Service professionals and entities across the globe. It’s always easy to connect with your clients face-to-face, but when you’re online and invisible (not literally!); it’s kind of difficult to have a personal connect with your clients. A .PRO domain name adds that personal touch to your business persona.

But hey! Not everyone can apply for a .PRO domain. The RegistryPro website clearly states the following –

To register a .PRO domain name, you must be:

  • A person or entity who provides professional services
  • Admitted to or licensed by a government certification body or jurisdictional licensing entity recognized by a governmental body that regularly verifies the accuracy of its data
  • In good standing with the licensing authority

In addition to this, you’ll also have to provide the Registry with the following information –

  • Your name
  • Your profession
  • Your jurisdictional country
  • Your licensing authority
  • Your license number
  • A link to your licensing authority’s Web site

Sounds like a lot of effort for one domain, right? Don’t worry, once you’ve got yourself registered, you won’t have to submit your documents every time you buy a new .PRO domain.

You can check out the rest of the RegistryPro’s FAQs here.

Now for some good news 🙂
