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.
 
Low quality LLL.com frequently sell below $5,000.

The minimum for LLL.net is about $350+ and .ORG is about $200+

.PRO will obviously never sell for those amounts. I think your bar in unrealistically high.

Photo-pro at $18K.

This is what I meant by establishing a high ceiling (or at least higher) for Pros. Doesn't matter to me if it's a 3L, a 4L or a 10L. If a name like Photo-pro can sell for 18K then IMO Job.pro should be worth more. That doesn't mean that it's going to sell for more, just that it's worth more. Sorry if I misspoke. I frequently do. LOL.

Guess the sales will fall into next weeks list on dnjournal I emailed all the ones mentioned on this board., but could very well have all sold past May 1'st which would push them to next weeks report. Maybe the people on this board could also email them as there are quite a few good sales.

The sale of photo.pro occurred on 3-28-2011. However, I was just advised by Ron Jackson that the sale was omitted from Afternic's list, and will not be reported in the Journal until next week. I will carefully follow up and, in the mean time, will send you and Andrew verification for your respective websites...:talk:

Well, regardless of if dnjournal posts, its an awesome sale and congrats! :)

Hoping to score some sales on my end as well soon.
Thank you. I would expect that you will. Inquiries to my sales site have been rising steadily, with many coming from investment groups and the like. I also recently countered an offer of 30k for one of my better domains, but can not comment further at this time...

That's good news per the sales. I own celebrity.pro, purchased from someone on this forum a few years ago. I had an inquiry from a Hollywood media company in 2008, right before the Great Depression. However, afterwards, they contacted me and said they were putting a moratorium on domain acquisitions at that time.
 
Great news!!)) I have: Picture.pro and Pictures.pro
BTW i have offer for Vodka dot Pro 2000 EURO

Congrats on the offer on Vodka. I own Bourbon dot pro but apparently those Ridge Runnin' Kentucky Hillbillies just ain't payin' attention !!! LOL. But I'm glad to see Vodka getting some attention.

I know you're psyched about Picture and Pictures ... keep us informed and good luck !!!

Chas,thanks for compiling the list. However beware of the namebio data as I think it is corrupted by sedo's faulty?! rss feed. Some of the sales on the list did not happen this year. For example Music.pro which was sold quite a few years back 2006 and documented here http://www.dnjournal.com/archive/domainsales/2006/domainsales09_26_06.htm and corresponds to the sale date on total.pro.


Great to see a few more .pro's selling. Is anyone keeping track of how many of these sales are getting developed?
 
Pro People. I have to take down my "$22 Pro Domain" sale sometime this weekend. It's time to throw everything into a pile and see what I have to work with, then I'm off to do some design work.

So if you would like to take one last look at the $22 names, please do so as soon as possible. Link is in my sig.

Thanks
Charles

I found something possibly interesting while reviewing the list of .pro domains I posted earlier.
The count of registered .pro domains amounts at approx. 96251 today.
But it's interesting that it includes 43492 NNNNN.pro. There are 43547 pure numeric .pro domains.
I have only sampled a few (eg. 99950.PRO) but they all belong to a Cyprus-based entity and were registered around August 2010. I dare not imagine they actually got that many .pro domains...
But I think that should explain the surge in .pro domains that occurred at some point.

In conclusion, I think the numbers are artificially inflated and could very well be 'adjusted' as renewal time kicks in...

http://zip.pro/

is the most likely answer. don't ask me why they registered all the numbers in the world, but surely its on bulk pricing arrangement I would guess.

The extension is still adding 2,500 +/- per month. Total.pro reports a monthly chart and it doesn't reflect these numbers.

But overall, the growth is present, so I think the story remains the same. I'd be more concerned if this chart pointed the opposite direction, but it doesn't.

Those are the zip codes being used by that company that Kerry found. Type in your Zip Code, NNNNN dot com, and you'll see what I mean. There are 43,191 zip codes but 4000 or so had apparently already been registered before these guys came up with their idea.

Oops! Sorry Kerry. I read through the posts too quickly and overlooked that you had already explained the mystery. I guess that we should just be relieved that they are all not nine digit domains (SS numbers) all registered by Barack Obama & Associates.
