Who can register .pro domains?

Anyone can register .pro domain names on a first-come, first-served basis.


We’ll attempt to auto-renew your .pro domain on its expiration date. We’ll park .pro domain names after the first failed billing attempt. If the domain isn’t renewed within 40 days following expiration, we cancel it and remove it from your account.

Nameserver requirements

Two nameservers are required for .pro domains to resolve, and a maximum of 13 nameservers is allowed. DNSSEC, IPv4 and IPv6 are supported.
