.pro

The .pro suffix was created for certified professionals including lawyers, doctors and accountants.

.pro is a generic top-level domain (gTLD), intended for business use by qualified professionals. The .pro extension was originally launched in June 2004 with registrations restricted to lawyers, accountants, physicians and engineers in France, Canada, UK and the US.

The registrar Encirca introduced its controversial ProForwarding service in March 2005, which allowed unverified individuals and businesses to register .pro domains by proxy for $99. By January 2008 total registrations reached 6,899.

In September 2008 ICANN agreed to also include government certified professionals in all countries. Registrants are required to self-certify their professional status and agree to .pro terms of use before registration, then subsequently provide detailed license information.

Registrars offering .pro domains include Encirca, Network Solutions, and Domain People. As of January 2009, first year teaser-rate registration fees are priced between $20-$30.
