I back the proposed changes
I, too, fully supportÂthe relaxation of the procedure for .pro domain extension. The changes are sound, reasonable and necessary for thisÂdomain extension. I believe thatÂthe extensionÂwould provide excellent opportunities for more reliability andÂnew expression on the web.ÂIt easily is brandable to users that serious,Âcredible business services can be found with a click of a button.Â I agree that professionals of all sorts, worldwide, should be given the opportunity to register these names. Much like mobile (.mobi) and television (.tv/misnomer aside), pro (.pro) isÂaÂterm that isÂlargely known the world overÂinÂEnglish and as aÂ'root'ÂinÂa majority of the mostÂspoken languages.ÂThis includes Spanish ("profesional"); Portuguese ("profissional"); Italian ("professionale"); French ("professionnel"); Romanian ("profesional"); Czech ("profesionÃlnÃ"); Norwegian ("profesjonell"); Turkish ("profesyonel"); Latvian ("profesionÄls"); Lithuanian ("profesinis"); Slovak ("profesionÃlny"); and Indonesian ("profesional"). Significantly, the allowance of registration of second level names on their own, with continued affirmation as to TOS and audit system, is far better for the extension than requiring third level domain registration for registering second level names, with redirect. In this light, such changes would probably reflect in the decrease of registration pricing, which needs to be reduced from $99 per year. ThisÂunquestionably wouldÂlead to more registartions, an aspect often regarded as crucial for any extension to take off. I truly wish the .pro extension well and wish to be a part of it as a licensed professional. Thank you for your consideration, Regards, Paul V. Farkas, Esq.
