"Doctors, lawyers, engineers and all other professionals can now enjoy the credibility that comes with having a .Pro domain name without jumping through a lot of hoops," said Terry Harris, product manager for "ICANN has relaxed its strict requirements for this TLD and simplified the verification process."
