A .PRO domain name is the first and only restricted top-level domain created exclusively for professionals, approved and regulated by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) and operated by RegistryPro. A .PRO domain name can be used and registered by persons and organizations that are licensed or otherwise authorized by the appropriate government agencies or organizations to provide professional services to the public in the legal, medical, accounting and engineering fields.

No special procedures.

RegistrarOC specific parameters

As the owner of a .PRO repository you do not have to provide the following extension:

X-PRO-ACCEPT-TOU = 0 | 1 (optional)

Completing the A/V data

Besides the possibility that you may request the URL that allows your customer to complete the A/V data at the registry website we can also configure your account to automatically request this URL. Alternatively, you can submit the A/V data using the API specifying all of the following parameters with the AddDomainAvRecord command:

PROFESSIONTYPE = <TEXT>: identifier for the profession of the license
JURISDICTIONCOUNTRY = <COUNTRY>: the ISO country code within which the license has been issued
LICENSEAUTHORITY = <TEXT>: the licensing authority that issued the license (this can be a state or province, or it can be the full name of the licensing authority)
LICENSENUMBER = <TEXT>: the license number
LICENSEDATE = <TEXT>: the date the license was issued
FIRSTNAME = <TEXT>: the first name of the person to which the license was issued
LASTNAME = <TEXT>: the family name of the person to which the license was issued
BIRTHDATE = <TEXT>: the date of birth of the professional
WEBSITE = <TEXT>: the URL of the licensing authority that issued the license

In this case, it is not necessary to do the confirmation using the URL provided in the response.

For the AddDomainAvRecord command you can submit additional extensions:

HOST = <TEXT> (max. 255 chars.)(optional)

Possible values:

registryTK-registryUI - Default value. The registrar will create an A/V object indicating a host type of RegistryTK-RegistryUI and indicating the ContactId of the registrant contact object. (The registrant contact is the link between a domain and an A/V object.) RegistryPro responds with a URL (containing the identifier of the A/V object) of the RegistryPro hosted A/V site, and the registrar refers the registrant to this site. RegistryPro collects and verifies the A/V data, then activates the domain.

registryTK-registrarUI - In the second option, RegistryPro also performs all the checks, but the registrar may provide the user interface for collecting the A/V data. The registrar, first, collects the A/V data directly from the registrant. The registrar, then, creates an A/V object indicating RegistryTK-RegistrarUI and includes the A/V data in the <create> request. Again, when creating the A/V object, the registrar should associate the object with the registrant contact of the domain being registered. There are no retries on professional data; if it doesn’t verify the A/V object is marked final and failed. If the professional verification succeeds, RegistryPro will automatically activate the domain name.

CHECKTYPE= <TEXT> (max. 255 chars) (optional)

The check type specifies what A/V data must be collected and verified in an A/V Check. Clients should set this parameter to a value appropriate to the purpose of the A/V object. This parameter currently supports only the following value:
