Registry operator for the .pro top-level domain RegistryPro announced on Monday that it has entered into a new data escrow partnership with technology escrow provider NCC Group to ensure the security of .pro registration information.
Under the agreement, RegistryPro will use high-level encryption to transfer its registry data securely over the Internet to NCC Group's servers on a daily schedule. NCC Group will then verify the format and consistency of the registry information in accordance with The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers' requirements and store the information in its data centres.
"By establishing a comprehensive escrow solution with NCC Group, RegistryPro is clearly demonstrating their commitment to supporting their customers' operations," says Craig Motta, North American general manager for NCC Group.
"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 ensure the ongoing, efficient operation of their registry. In knowing that this critical contingency has been covered, it leaves RegistryPro to concentrate on their core business."
RegistryPro, a subsidiary of Web hosting provider Hostway, says that the .pro TLD is reserved for credentialed professionals, like licensed doctors, lawyers and accountants, who must meet confidentiality obligations when communicating online.
