.Pro Domains Yet to Hit the Mainstream

.Pro domains are still relatively unknown to the general public, and there’s debate as to when the domains will hit the mainstream.

Whether the buzz starts in two months or two years, there are still some top .pro domain names for sale across a host of industries.

RegistryPro operates the .pro domain name extension for professionals, and is the first company to require enhanced security through digital certificates. .Pro registrants are also required to self-certify their professional status in order to obtain the .pro domain and digital certificate.

The RegistryPro organization, owned by Hostway Corporation, received approval to launch the .pro domain in 2002 from the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).

The registration requirements provide the .pro domains heightened credibility, which could see the .pro domains potentially take a share of the market from current domain leaders, such as .com and .org.

Meanwhile, domainers are investing heavily in the .pro market in anticipation of major returns on investments. The great news is a few hosting companies like Network Solutions have started offering .pro domains at exceptionally low prices, i.e. $29.99.
