RegistryPro Opens 1- and 2-letter .PRO Domain Names
Previously, all one and two-letter .pro domain names were initially reserved as part of their initial registry operator agreement. The proposed plan to release these domain names is currently as follows:
“RegistryPro anticipates a three phase implementation to be executed in the following order:
1. An Request For Proposals (RFP) round to invite interested registrants to propose specific plans for use and promotion of
2. An auction round that offers domains not allocated during the RFP round; and
3. A first-come, first-served (FCFS) release of any domains not allocated during the RFP or auction rounds.
RegistryPro proposes to amend their registry operator contract language and implement this phased allocation program to permit the introduction of one, two and character .PRO names in the DNS.
So what does this mean for you? Well, for starters there may be some 1,2, and 3 letter domain names that make it through to the public phase of the plan, so there could be some very valuable .pro domains that will be publicly available. We will keep our readers and customers updated as more information come available.
