Hostway Offers Discount on Newly Expanded .Pro TLDs

Hostway Corporation, the global Web services leader, has begun accepting registrations for the .Pro top-level domain (TLD) under new rules that extend .Pro eligibility to a wider global audience. Customers who sign up for .Pro domain names now can take advantage of Hostway's limited-time discount of $14.95 for the first year, and $34.95 for every year thereafter.

.Pro became available to professionals in 2005 under strict registration criteria that limited the domain, resulting in low registration rates. Earlier this year, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) approved a broader set of rules for .Pro, making it widely available to nearly all professionals across the globe.

"A .Pro domain name shows that the owner has proven their professional affiliation," said John Lee, vice president of premium services for Hostway. "We're pleased to be able to offer this indication of credibility to a wider audience of professionals."

Professionals registering a .Pro TLD must self-certify their credentials through a simplified process. To learn the specific criteria for self-certification of professional affiliation, read Hostway's .Pro FAQs.

The 70% discount on .Pro registrations is a limited-time offer. Professionals are urged to take action immediately to secure their name before all the best ones are taken.
