A long awaited notification has sparked enthusiasm on the global domain scene recently. .PRO – the premium cheap-dot-pro-domainnamespace for professionals, is no longer restricted to certain groups and burdened with a ton of verification work.

The strict registration curtain around .PRO domains has been lifted and now everyone with a professional cause can have their domain registered quickly and easily.

DDNS Cloud Hosting & Domain Names can now ride the hottest wave on the domain market and start offering .PRO domains to a much wider client base and also for a much lower price at $5.50 /yr until June 30th 2018!

Why were .PRO domains restricted?

When the .PRO TLD was launched 13 years ago by RegistryPro, it was meant to represent certified professionals only.

The Pro domain registration itself at that time was tied to a long verification procedure where registrants were required to legitimate their occupancy by showing compliance with a long list of eligibility criteria, including professional status, government certification and good standing.

The presented registration information was then verified by the registry. This was a time-consuming process that caused registrants inconvenience.

And above all, it was not open to all professionals globally, but instead only to lawyers, accountants, physicians and engineers in France, Canada, Germany, the UK and the USA.

Professionals from a wide range of fields, including policemen, firefighters, journalists, programmers, artists, writers and many others, were left off the list of eligible .PRO registrants.

How were the rules of the .PRO domain game changed?

Due to the restricted procedure, registration numbers started dwindling over the years.

This lead to a strategic move on a registry level. RegistryPro was acquired by Afilias Limited – the registry behind .INFO and .MOBI.

This resulted in a new deal with ICANN, which liberated the TLD of all the restrictionsthat RegistryPro originally agreed to 13 years ago.

Thanks to the newly loosened registry regulations, .PRO domains are now open for registration to practically everyone.

Regardless of their certificates, all registrants can apply for a .PRO domain name.

Who can now register .PRO domains?

Thanks to the newly loosened registry regulations, .PRO domains are now open for registration to practically everyone.

Regardless of their certificates, all registrants can apply for a .PRO domain name.


The .PRO domain registration procedure is now short and quick, with no credentials to submit and no extra verification steps to go through.

The registration details stay the same. Registrants can reserve .PRO domains for a period of 1-10 years and can make modifications to the Whois information, whenever needed.

As per the registry’s official rule, .PRO domain names cannot be transferred between registrars and do not support a Whois protection service.
