Public Comment: Single, Two and Select Three Character Names in .PRO

6 May 2009

ICANN is today opening a public comment forum on a proposed amendment from
RegistryPro to Appendix C and K of the .PRO Registry Agreement.

On 8 April 2009, ICANN posted for public information a request submitted by
RegistryPro through the Registry Services Evaluation Process (RSEP). The
request calls for a phased allocation process for single, two and select
three character names in .PRO.

The RegistryPro proposal is available at
http://www.icann.org/registries/rsep/registry-pro-08apr09-en.pdf [PDF,

As provided for by existing consensus policy (
http://www.icann.org/en/registries/rsep/rsep.html), ICANN performed a
preliminary review to determine whether the proposal might raise significant
security, stability, or competition issues. ICANN's determination is that
the proposal does not raise such issues.

[Note that, from 13 June to 13 July 2008, ICANN conducted a public comment
forum on a proposed single-character second-level domain names allocation
framework (
which supported the allocation single-character second-level domain names in
existing registries and reviewed various allocation methods.]

The proposal requires an amendment the .PRO Schedule of Reserved Names
(Appendix K) and a description of the phased allocation program is proposed
to be inserted in Section 12 of Appendix C. A copy of the proposed contract
amendment is available here [PDF, 100K]. Comments on the proposed amendment
may be submitted to pro-alloc-amendment at icann.org through 5 June 2009
23:59 UTC. Comments may be viewed at

All documentation related to the RegistryPro proposal is available at
