BOSTON, Jan. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Effective January 6, 2010, EnCirca.com, registrar of the .pro top level domain, is offering a bulk purchase program designed to promote widespread use of the .pro domain name. EnCirca is soliciting expressions of interest from parties willing to commit to a minimum purchase of 5,000 .pro domain names. Selected parties will receive a discounted price lower than that available for dot-com domain names. The .pro bulk purchase program is ideal for professional trade associations, domain resellers and professional domain investors.
"In the past year, as .pro registration restrictions have been relaxed, the .pro zone file has grown 400 percent," says Thomas Barrett, President of EnCirca. "We expect even more growth in 2010 when one, two and three character .pro domain names are made available. Our current retail price for a .pro domain name is $14.95. We are looking for a partner interested in making a .pro bulk purchase for a greatly reduced cost."
The "Pro" suffix is recognized worldwide as a designation for "professional." This instant branding is one of the reasons for the .pro domain's increased popularity among professionals creating their own online brand.
The .pro domain is designed exclusively for use by all licensed professionals, such as lawyers, engineers, electricians and realtors, to help professionals establish online trust and communicate their credentials. There are no restrictions on the types of names a business may register. Businesses may register industry keywords, search engine terms, company names, or their trademarks. There is no limit to how many .pro domain names an individual or company can register. Dot-pro customers self-certify their professional status by providing their identification, contact information and profession-specific information, such as their license number.
All expressions of interest are confidential and more details can be found at http://www.encirca.com/html/bulk-purchase.shtml
