The Special '*.PRO' Defensives
Posted by Grace - Encirca on 24 October 2014 11:04 AM

Originally the .pro registry had a special product which was a defensive
registration of literally "defensive.*.pro". This covered all
third-level domains. When the .pro registry was sold to Afilias, those
special "defensive.*.pro" entries were converted to a group of
third-level defensive registrations. This "defensive.*.pro" became
a set of registrations for

defensive.aaa.pro
defensive.aca.pro
defensive.acct.pro
defensive.avocat.pro
defensive.bar.pro
defensive.cpa.pro
defensive.eng.pro
defensive.jur.pro
defensive.law.pro
defensive.med.pro
defensive.recht.pro

Since these defensive registration are different from all other
defensive registrations and normal registrations, Encirca still
keeps them as a group listed and processed as "defensive.*.pro"
