lol .. produce and inventory were in mine!!!
lol, oh man! :gn:
Shuttle.pro (airport shuttle, transportation, etc.)
to the mix.
.PRO registrations surge 100 percent!
Article may be viewed at http://www.dnxpert.com/2008/10/09/encirca-announces-surge-in-pro-domain-registrations/ Thank you.
Living.pro :gn: Zuriko!
I picked up:
Nice one with lens.pro - I can see a lot of uses for that.
Here are my latest pickups:
DentalAssistant .pro - I think it's a perfect match for the extension
Tijuana .pro - "The Tijuana metropolitan area is the sixth-largest in Mexico, with a population of 1,483,992 and as the San Diego-Tijuana Metropolitan Area it is the 14th largest metropolitan area in North America, at 4,922,723. It is one of the fastest growing cities in Mexico."
Doha .pro - "Doha is Qatar's largest city, with over 80% of the nation's population residing in Doha or its surrounding suburbs, and is also the economic center of the country. Doha is seeing huge amounts of growth, with the population of the city increasing by more than 60,000 between 2004 and 2006."
finally good news for .pro, and I feel that better ones will come soon.
I wonder if this is only encirca registrations or all .pro registrations. Either way it's a good sign of things to come.
Great news... It would be nice to see such stats from Domain People ($19.99), Network Solutions ($24.99) and Hostway ($14.99) as well.
DentalAssistant goes well with .pro! :gn:
Doha and surrounding middle eastern markets make up perfect GEO domains that fit .pro nicely. One of my first pro regs was AbuDhabi.pro!
well to be honest 100% is nothing ...
so if they previously averaged 10 regs a day, now they are seeing 20??? based off of what i have seen go through motion.pro they probably have seen an average increase more like 1000% or more.
i'm really curious where the current reg numbers stand for .pro overall. anyone know where to find out?
Lens.pro is awesome, especially for a 4 letter. Tons of huge companys make lenses from Contacts to telescopes to cameras and more.
Thanks. I was surprised to see it was still available.
Grabbed a couple more:
I picked up Bible.pro.
There were approx 6K .pro domains before the relaunch.
my latest ... propane.pro
thanks!!! and congrats for Lens.pro!!!
Rack.pro (Server racks, storage, etc.)
any appraisals on any of them? just regged. thanks.
I think that's total registrations so presumably there are 13,000-15,000 registered now. I was hoping for 100,000. .pro still needs to be alot more competitive on price and get sold by bigger registrars. The deal announced with Melbourne IT doesn't seem to have materialised, there .is still no .pro on their domain panel. If .pro was promoted by Godaddy, it could get to 100,000 registrations easily.
i don't think so, encirca isn't privy to other registrars numbers and this article seems to only speak to encirca numbers. i would be shocked if total regs are only in the 15K range!
I'd be shocked if there are more than 15k .pro registered.
Have asked jmcc to try and run a zone file scan, we'll know soon enough.
I'm sorry to say that even the price reduction didn't boost the regs much... there are a ton of premiums available even now.
missed tablet.pro by few days! Good name :gn:
Some of these were on my list, decent names!
I just picked up:
Separate names with a comma.
