Here is some good News, No GREAT news... In Celebration of Engineers Week, Domain Name Launches for Engineers Only

In acknowledgement of Engineers Week (Feb. 20-26) across the U.S., RegistryPro today announces the upcoming launch of the domain name. The engineering community can look forward to a February 21, 2005 release date for their exclusive registration. RegistryPro will also honor specific individuals in the engineering community on its website,, as well as feature an engineer-specific blog with a question of the day. "Engineers dedicate their work to making our lives better, always remaining behind the scenes," said Michael DelCiello, general manager of RegistryPro and electrical engineering graduate. "Now with their own signature, they get the far-reaching recognition they deserve on the Internet."

Until now, doctors, lawyers and accountants have been the only professionals eligible to register for the .Pro domains. RegistryPro happily extends its registration to the engineering community who hold important characteristics that embody the .Pro extension: strong ethics, association involvement and public interest.

In the U.S., the verification process relies on standards set by the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying and leverages each states licensing boards to determine eligibility. In other countries, engineers are approved by local and regional associations such as the Canadian Council of Professional Engineers, the Engineering Council UK, and the Bundesingenieurkammer in Germany.

In addition to offering engineers a differentiated Web identity, also provides professional credibility and secure communications. Each name comes bundled with technology, which allows for secure, encrypted communication to protect confidential client information in private online communications.

RegistryPro has been working closely with the National Society of Professional Engineers to deliver to the engineering community. "The Internet is undoubtedly one of the greatest engineering achievements of the 20th century," said NSPE Executive Director Al Gray, Ph.D., P.E. "Now, through the domain, professional engineers will be able to distinguish themselves online and carry out confidential communications with clients and colleagues in their day-to-day business."
