BOSTON, April 28 /PRNewswire/ -- EnCirca, Inc. (www.encirca.com), registrar for the .Pro Internet Domain, today launched the Sunrise Period for .Pro defensive name registrations. The Sunrise Period gives registered trademark holders an opportunity to protect their brands in the .Pro domain before it becomes available for public registrations. The Sunrise Period ends on June 1. Initially offered to doctors, lawyers and accountants, the .Pro solution is designed to assist professionals who have heightened confidentiality obligations in securing online communications such as client correspondence, patient information, court, tax, and insurance filings. "For the first time, professionals will be able to utilize the same security technology that the leading e-commerce websites use to interact with their customers," said Thomas Barrett, Chief Executive Officer of EnCirca. "This is accomplished via digital certificates that encrypt all data communications involving client and patient information," according to Barrett. The initial .Pro Domains will be Law.Pro, Med.Pro and CPA.Pro. All registrants must provide proof of their eligibility in order to qualify for a .Pro domain. In return, they are issued a digital certificate that will authenticate their online communications. EnCirca is also accepting pre-registrations for the Open Registration Period. This allows lawyers, doctors and accountants who do not qualify for the Sunrise Period to apply for their desired domain names in advance. July 1 is the planned launch date for professionals who want to register their .Pro domain name. About EnCirca Founded in 2001, EnCirca, Inc. (www.EnCirca.com) is an accredited registrar for the .Pro registry. It provides domain name registration services to trademark owners worldwide. Visit http://www.encirca.com for more information.
