Sorry but that's bot true, just compare all .co sales (aftermarket and reg) from launch to now with .pro Look names of domainers that trust on .co, they are the big guys.... I can argue for hours but don't need because it's a .pro thread. I was a .pro, .tel... believer but since the big names (domainers), registrars... don't put effort on marketing or are interested about it, I'll put my eggs elswhere. It could be one of .com challenger but fail, hope that will change but don't really believe because restriction is the lock for success. I already exlain above other reasons .pro will not work. Here is another example and experience with .pro I've collect like many domainers here a list of several hundreds of home staging agencies, company... sent out an email about homestaging.pro for sale (don't tell me that name is not a good name) at a reasonable price $250 (any professional can pay that, and it's cheap) was set on sedo so they can pay immediately or contact me and trade manualy; guess what, I've got a few reply and in their email they were saying not interested, never heard about .pro... just shocking for me! So I think I sold to a domainer here for a lower price, and it is still parked!
