NameJet and RegistryPro Partner to Auction Premium Three-Character Domains

NameJet™, a leading domain auction company that offers an exclusive inventory of deleted and expired domains, and RegistryPro™, the exclusive operator of the .PRO top-level domain (TLD) on the Internet, announced today a partnership to auction eleven premium, three-character .PRO domains starting November 16th, 2010. RegistryPro agreed to partner with NameJet based on the success of previous premium domain auctions hosted on the NameJet platform.

"We continue to see the use of .PRO domains grow and are excited to offer our premium three-character domains through the NameJet platform," commented Lucas Roh, CEO of RegistryPro. "With NameJet's success in auctioning other premium domains, coupled with the scale of their user base, we believe this will be a very successful first auction for us."

"We are pleased to be working with a prestigious registry like RegistryPro," said Matt Overman, general manager of NameJet. "We look forward to generating even more awareness for .PRO names and making their premium domain inventory available to our customers."

NameJet and RegistryPro will make more details of the auction available in the coming weeks.
