RE: Request to Amend .Pro Registry Agreement
Dear Ms. Dam:
We are submitting the following statement on behalf of the RegistryPro Advisory Board.
We understand that RegistryPro has requested a modification of its Registry Agreement with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to provide for the offering of a second-level .Pro domain name alternative to the third-level .Pro domain name which ICANN has already approved (Second-Level Domain Proposal). The primary purpose of the second-level .Pro domain name is to offer the consumer greater choice with respect to available naming conventions.
We believe this choice will enhance the appeal of .Pro to our distribution channel. The proposed second-level .Pro domain will continue to uphold Pro's existing eligibility requirements and registration restrictions and will simply offer wider latitude to end-users.
We have reviewed the Second-Level Domain Proposal and believe it will provide a positive alternative to the .Pro third-level domain name and eliminate unnecessary obstacles to consumer choice and adoption.
Please feel free to contact either of us at the numbers below if you have any questions or would like to discuss this matter further.
