(16 July 2009 )


Amendment No. 5 to the .pro Registry Agreement

ICANN and RegistryPro agree that the following modification is made to the 3 May 2002 dot-PRO Registry Agreement:

Appendix K

[Old Text]

B. Additional Second-Level Reservations. In addition, the following names shall be reserved at the second-level:

All single-character labels.

All two-character labels shall be initially reserved. The reservation of a two- character label string shall be released to the extent that the Registry Operator reaches agreement with the government and country-code manager, or the ISO 3166 maintenance agency, whichever appropriate. The Registry Operator may also propose release of these reservations based on its implementation of measures to avoid confusion with the corresponding country codes.

All three-character labels shall be initially reserved by the Registry Operator.

The reservation of a three-character label string shall be released to the Registry Operator in conjunction with the introduction of corresponding PS- SLDs and pursuant to the procedures outlined in Appendix L, Section 4.

* All single and two-character labels that were previously reserved by the Registry in the Registry Agreement may be allocated through ICANN accredited registrars, based upon implementation of a phased allocation program as further set forth in Appendix C, Section 12.

Appendix C, Section 12

[New Text]

.PRO One, Two, and Three Character Phased Allocation Program (“Phased Allocation Program”). The domain names included within the scope of the Phased Allocation Program shall be limited to one, two, and three character .PRO domain names. RegistryPro reserves the right to not allocate all one, two and three character .PRO domain names. Pursuant to the Phased Allocation Program, RegistryPro may elect to allocate the domain names via the following processes: 1) request for proposals based on evaluation criteria, 2) auction, or 3) first come, first served registration.

The domain names allocated via the Phased Allocation Program are an exception to the Maximum Service Fee described in Appendix G of the .PRO Registry Agreement.

The parties have duly executed this Amendment as of the date first written below.
