RegistryPro, the exclusive operator of the .Pro top level domain (TLD) on the Internet, has received approval from the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to greatly expand the scope and availability of the .Pro TLD. The newly ratified terms of service increases the number of professionals who are eligible for the TLD, extends the availability globally, and streamlines the registration process.
Since launching in 2004, access to .Pro has been restricted to four professions: accountants, engineers, lawyers and medical professionals in Canada, Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States. Under the new terms of service, the TLD will become available to any professional or professional entity holding credentials from a certifying governmental authority anywhere in the world. These changes significantly broaden the market for the .Pro domain while still limiting the availability to professionals and maintaining the exclusive nature of the TLD.
In addition to the expanded scope, the new terms of service also makes it much easier to obtain a 2nd level domain and greatly simplify the registration process – thereby making .Pro domains both easier to obtain and more desirable.
Previously, stringent guidelines limited the availability of 2nd level .Pro domains (e.g. "doctorsmith.pro"), and resulted in registrants opting for the easier to obtain 3rd level domains (e.g. "doctorsmith.med.pro") The new terms of service eliminates the additional requirements for 2nd level domains, making these shorter, more desirable addresses available to anyone that meets the general TLD requirements.
The registration process has also been simplified. Individuals were previously required to submit written documentation of their credentials from an authorized certifying authority. These credentials would then be manually authenticated and verified by the registry – a process that greatly impacted the time and effort required to register a .Pro domain. Under the new registration process, the registrants need only supply the type of certification they hold, the name of the organization, and their license number on the registration form.
Per the published minutes of a Special Meeting of the ICANN Board of Directors posted on ICANN's Web site, the proposed changes to the .Pro Registry Agreement were approved by a voice vote of 10 to 0.
Plans are in progress to "relaunch" .Pro with a target date of July 14, 2008.
Thermaltake today announced the latest generation of Orb Series CPU cooler, X5 Orb FXII. According to the press release, X5 Orb FX II provides more options, and makes PC more stylish and interesting for modders and overclockers.
The X5 Orb FX II supports Intel (socket LGA775) and AMD (socket AM2/AM2+) mainstream platforms. Other than the cooling capability of BlueOrb FX, the X5 Orb FXII has a special LED display function to grip the cooling status. It shows the current temperature of the fan in C/F and the real-time fan rotation speed. The patented radiant design not only cools the CPU but also helps to cool the surrounding VRM as well. The special crotched fin design on X5 Orb FXII provides maximum heat dissipation with massive aluminum fins counting up to 140.
