ResellerClub sells 11,000 .pro domains in a month

Directi says it sold 11,000 .pro domains via its ResellerClub channel in the first month after it started supporting the TLD.

That’s pretty impressive going, given that the whole of .pro was only about 155,000 domains at the last count, enough to put the registrar into fifth place for .pro domains under management.

ResellerClub’s wholesale price until October 31 is $2.99, with two free email accounts, according to the company.

The surge will prove useful to .pro registry Afilias, which expects to see over 40,000 domains — all of them US Zip codes registered to .pro’s former owner Hostway — drop this month.

    Unfortunately it is very likely that those 11,000 are domain tasting, phishing, fake renewals etc. Looking how many of those used WHOIS proxies will give a more precise scenario.

    That’s great news for .pro! Afilias has been doing a great job quietly expanding the reach for pro domains. Resellerclub obviously knows their business with results like this.
