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 
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
