DomainsBot to Help Professionals Find .PRO Internet Addresses More Easily

RegistryPRO, the ICANN-designated operator of the .PRO top-level domain and a subsidiary of leading registry services provider Afilias, today announced that DomainsBot, the leading domain name suggestion and search engine company, will now include .PRO in their domain name search and suggestion tool, used by the majority of the world's best-known Internet domain name retailers, including 101Domains, Blacknight, MeshDigital, Net4In and Tucows.

With the growing need to differentiate an individual’s business and skills on the Internet, the .PRO domain gives professionals who need a website a one-of-a-kind address that helps them to brand themselves as the professionals they are. The inclusion of .PRO in the market-leading DomainsBot domain search tool demonstrates the growing popularity of .PRO as a global identifier of professional status.

DomainsBot's "name spinner" tool is designed to help developers, site owners and marketers find available domain names when a first-choice domain name is already registered. DomainsBot offers a wide variety of results – including domain names that are available, expiring and for sale – to ensure that professionals can easily find the best domain name available.

"The inclusion of .PRO into the DomainsBot search and suggestion tool is another milestone in the success of the .PRO TLD," said Roland LaPlante, CMO of Afilias. "More professionals are setting up websites every day, and the integrity of .PRO sets it apart in the world of Internet addresses. All .PRO registrants must certify that they meet strict eligibility requirements, and may be required to submit proof to the registry. To further ensure the integrity of .PRO, all registrations are subject to .PRO’s monitoring and verification process."

"As the Internet continues to grow, so does the need for distinct professional branding. Given that, we felt it was important to include .PRO domains as part of our services," said Daniel Ruzzini Mejia, Co-Founder & CSO, DomainsBot. "The .PRO domain now plays a significant role on the Web; we wanted to ensure our customers could take advantage of the branding benefits that come with the .PRO domain."

To qualify to register a .PRO domain, registrants may be asked to provide their professional credentials to confirm they meet eligibility requirements, which include providing professional services, being validated by a government certification body or government-recognized jurisdictional entity and being in good standing with its authority. In addition, registrants may be asked to provide identification, contact information and profession-specific information like ID numbers.
