RegistryPro Announces Official Sponsorship of the 40th ICANN International Meeting

RegistryPro, the exclusive operator of the .PRO top-level domain (TLD), announced today it will serve as an official sponsor of the 40th ICANN International meeting in San Francisco, California, March 13-18. The San Francisco meeting marks the sixth international meeting sponsorship for .PRO.

"RegistryPro is proud to continue our support of ICANN's international meetings," said Matt Buckland, Director of Operations. "Thanks to our on-going relationship with ICANN and the continued development of our registrar base, .PRO has become one of the fastest growing gTLDs in the domain name industry. We're excited to lend our support back to the community that has provided us with so many opportunities for growth."

In 2010, .PRO, which is available to all business, professional individuals and organizations internationally, achieved an astounding 137% growth rate by capitalizing on several high-profile relationships and attracting many new segments of the professional service industry.

"Small and medium businesses, large organizations and independent professionals have flocked to .PRO by the tens of thousands to secure high-quality domain names," said Buckland. "Recently, IT professionals, advertising firms, and production companies have made .PRO the centerpiece of their branding and online presence. Many of our registrars have penetrated new markets and capitalized on these previously untapped segments."

In advance of the meeting in San Francisco, RegistryPro also announced its support of ICANNWiki, an online resource geared toward ICANN meetings and community-based discussion. ICANNWiki will have an information booth, #104, at the meeting.

"As the buzz surrounding the meeting in San Francisco continues to grow, .PRO is excited to participate in ICANNWiki," said Buckland.

"I am so pleased that RegistryPro has decided to continue its support of ICANNWiki," said Raymond King, CEO of AboutUs and ICANNWiki Director. "This sponsorship helps us do a better job building the site and its content and is especially critical during the re-launch of the project."
