EnCirca (www.encirca.pro) is slashing its dot-pro domain name pricing by over 50 percent to celebrate the re-launch of the dot-pro domain name. For the first time, licensed professionals from anywhere in the world will be eligible to register dot-pro domain names on a first-come, first-served basis at www.encirca.pro.
“The dot-pro landrush is first-come, first-serve, which means all licensed professionals can grab their brand name in advance of the re-launch in September.” says Thomas Barrett, President of EnCirca, the leading dot-pro registrar. “There has never been a better time for professionals to secure their online identity with a dot-pro domain name.”
Dot-pro domain names work just like dot-com domains, with the ability for fully featured websites and email addresses. The extension is already universally recognized on the Internet as the premium space for licensed professionals.
