    "It doesn't take new.net money to do a plugin, there's numerous of them out there."
    --> Yes. But it takes money to distribute this plug-in.
    That is the point: You could start a .pro but you wouldn't have the money to distribute your plug-in or to form ISP partnerships.

    "And 100% minus me is still not 100%"
    -->Yes. This was only a counter to your message: "So I start a .pro alt-root and your 100% solution goes away". I only wanted to say that you could start your own .pro but this would not change coverage in any way.
    If you register with both registries you would get at least 99% coverage. With the USG, ORSC and the PacificRoot you should cover nearly 100%.


    "I also don't see the benefit of having two .pros, one that costs money accessible by most all internet users, and another that one can also register in for nothing that is accessible by very few."
    --> Then please read this one again:

    in essence:

    users:
    users don't have to change their DNS settings to browse .pro domains

    registrants:
    they get near 100% coverage --> e.g. better ROI on advertising campagnes

    nic.pro registry:
    that is your problem, if you don't see the opportunities to make money with this concept. i wouldn't need registration fees. nic.PRO will be back online soon with FREE sub-domains. Dowload the FREE plug-in at
