.PRO – the premium namespace for professionals, is no longer restricted to certain groups and burdened with a ton of verification work.

Now everyone with a professional cause can have their domain registered quickly and easily.

Why was .PRO restricted?

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

The registration itself 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.

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 procedure is short and quick, with no credentials to submit and no extra verification steps to go through.

Registrants can reserve .PRO domains for a period of 1-10 years and can make modifications to the Whois information, whenever needed. Click here to check availability of a .PRO domain.

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