RegistryPro, the exclusive operator of the .Pro top level domain (TLD) on the Internet, has received approval from the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to expand the scope and availability of the .Pro TLD. This means that the number of professionals who are eligible for the TLD is now much broader.

Since 2004, access to .Pro has been available only to accountants, engineers, lawyers and medical professionals in Canada, Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States. Under the new terms of service however, the TLD will become available to any professional or professional entity holding credentials from a certifying governmental authority anywhere in the world. Registrants will be required to annually reaffirm that they are using the registration for the professional purpose as intended.

The new Terms of Use obligates new and renewing registrants to do three key things: 1) self-certify professional credentials, 2) agree that their .Pro domain will be used only by them and 3) consent to use .Pro domains only in relation to professional services. As part of its commitment to ICANN, RegistryPro will monitor new and renewed domains to ensure that registrants adhere to these regulations.
