    It seems .PRO is slowly coming out of the cage with cheaper reg prices than they were a year ago and major registrars like netsol taking notice of the extension and promoting it. B-)

    Here are some that I picked up in last couple of days:

    Alexandria.pro

    Anchorage.pro

    Arlington.pro

    Belfast.pro

    Birmingham.pro

    Budapest.pro

    Durham.pro

    Fairfax.pro

    Italian.pro

    Lisbon.pro

    Fire away with your regs after the relaunch on September 8th, 2008.

    Nice GEO names!

    I just grabbed Alarms.pro, too bad I spent most of my .pro budget earlier this year.

    Thanks. I think, after those ultra premiums, GEO domains fit .PRO nicely for their flexibility as far as content choices are concerned.

    I registered these last year

    AbuDhabi.pro
    Alpharetta.pro
    Anaheim.pro
    Arabic.pro
    Buckhead.pro
    Burbank.pro
    Copenhagen.pro
    Country.Pro
    Destination.pro
    Dublin.pro
    Florence.pro
    Geneva.pro
    Greenwich.pro
    Island.pro
    Madison.pro
    Mesa.pro
    Panama.pro
    Town.pro
    visit.pro

    nice geos ... i can see these doing well.

    i picked up a few, i'm bullish on .pro's future (like a year or 2 from now) and i'm going to spend some time and money developing one - when i get some time and money :laugh:

    i've picked up...

    bulk,pro
    footwear,pro
    officespace,pro
    literature,pro
    transportation,pro
    telecommunications,pro and a couple others

    working off a list i had from a couple months back, they are dropping like flies, i'm curious where the registration numbers are now.

    I think most Namepros members either have no pro credentials or are not associated to or have their own business. Not a bad idea to get incorporated.

    Even without regging .pro's when you incorporate you protect yourself from legal action and such. Not a bad investment.

    It varies from state to state, but you can get it done for less than $300.

    If I incorporate does that give me the credentials I need?
    Seriously, what's the easiest way to pass the sniff test?

    If you incorporate you give yourself a business. A lawyer should probably chime in here, but that should be all it takes. If your licenced for business I don't know what else they would need.

    Tahiti.pro
    Oahu.pro (Established website)

    I think there is already a same thread. So this is duplicated.

    I regged Hedge.pro today. Shorting has just been banned on the London Stock Exchange but I couldn't resist the lure of a $19.99 .pro.

    I was searching and found that quite a few good names were still available with dot pro. I can see a variety of domains in your signature. Are you licensed to do all these kinds of businesses? Would you explain it to me in the light of the UK law? Although I'm a passionate supporter of dot me but I do not mind to have a couple of .pros just to diversify my investment.

    Locator.pro
    Kazakhstan.pro (Hopefully soon these guys will figure out how to get that oil/gas from under the ground lol)
    Workout.pro
    SantaClara.pro
    Pasadena.pro
    FinancialAid.pro
    Bristol.pro
    KualaLumpur.pro

    Workout.pro is nice, I regged Aerobics.pro a couple of weeks ago. I like Locator.pro for online GPS location for pets, cars, bikes, children, people etc. Not sure about FinancialAid.pro.

    Thanks.

    I've had FinancialAid.pro in my list for long time... since I work in the education sector (public private) I come across a lot of "professional companies" offering "professional" financial aid services. So I thought maybe that name would be useful someday!

    Wish I'd gotten into the .pro craze earlier. Most of the best ones are gone. I did manage to grab these over the past few days:

    Ceiling.pro
    Duct.pro
    Finish.pro
    Josh.pro

    about 471,000 for site:pro (Google search)

    I decided to dip my toe with an £11.90 reg at Hostway. It seems that a few pro sites are now developed.

    Pile,pro

    I am a civil engineer mostly involved with foundation design, piling etc. I have thoughts about developing this as a professional website for the Industry with webmail, advertisements, news, articles and jobs.

    I have had the usual registry pro enquiry and seem to have been accepted. :|
