Gaining .pro domain


#1

Hey all, I’m IT for my client, and he wants to get a domain name with a .pro extension. DreamHost doesn’t seem to offer the .pro domain. We’ve already got the .net registration and hosting through DreamHost. Is there a simple way I can get the .pro domain I’m looking for and easily transfer it over, or is this that “you gotta wait 6 months” type thing?

Since you can’t register a .pro domain with Dreamhost you can’t transfer it in later either.

You can however set the DNS servers of your .pro domain to point to Dreamhost so that you can host the site here.

Here is the list of authorized registrar’s for TLD .pro http://www.registry.pro/professionals/find

As mentioned, register the name and set the name servers to

ns1.dreamhost.com
ns2.dreamhost.com
ns3.dreamhost.com

and you should be all set.
