Chicago, Illinois (Vocus/PRWEB ) February 26, 2008 — RegistryPro, the exclusive
operator of the .Pro top-level domain (TLD), announced today it has entered a

"NCC Group has an outstanding reputation and
offered us a completely scalable and accessible solution," said Catherine
Sigmar, general manager of RegistryPro. "With this partnership, customers are
assured that RegistryPro is committed to securing their information according to
the industry's best practices."
The Internet Corporation for Assigned
Names and Numbers (ICANN), requires TLD registries like RegistryPro to store
highly secure copies of registrant data by depositing incremental backups with
third-party data escrow providers such as NCC Group. RegistryPro and NCC Group
finalized the agreement in January 2008.
Under the agreement, RegistryPro
uses high-level encryption to transfer its registry data securely over the
Internet to NCC Group's servers on a daily schedule. NCC Group, a global
industry leader with 20 years experience protecting data, then verifies the
format and consistency of the registry information in accordance with ICANN’s
requirements. NCC Group then safely stores the registry information in its data
centers, guaranteeing its availability to ICANN if necessary.

their clients and ICANN,” said Craig Motta, North American General Manager for
NCC Group. “By establishing a comprehensive escrow solution with NCC Group,
RegistryPro is clearly demonstrating their commitment to supporting their
customers’ operations. The key benefit of this escrow solution is that it gives
peace of mind to their customers that in the unlikely event that RegistryPro is
unable to support them, RegistryPro has done everything necessary to insure the
