Free Pre-Registration of Prof-Domains

The ICANN process of introducing new top level domains is progressing. The sunrise period of the Prof-Domains starts on April 2, 2023. During the sunrise period, trademark owners can register their trademarks under the Prof-Domain as a domain of the same name. The trademarks must be registered in the Trademark Clearinghouse .

Some companies and organizations have not yet registered their important terms as trademarks. Such companies and organizations can also get a Prof-Domain in the sunrise period.

Secura GmbH can procure the corresponding brand at short notice and the companies or organizations can participate in the sunrise period of the Prof-Domains. Secura GmbH will register the new brand with the Trademark Clearinghouse and then register the corresponding Prof-Domain.

You can pre-register your name under the Prof-Domains here. The pre-registration of the Prof-Domain is free of charge but binding. If we secure the name you want for you, you will have to pay the domain fee.

Each standard domain costs 39 EUR/year in general availability. For many domain endings, domains in the sunrise period are more expensive than domains in general availability. At the Prof-Domains Standard and Premium Domains cost in the Sunrise Period as much as in the General Availability - and you still get a 15% discount.

The following phases are planned for the introduction of the Prof-Domains:

  • Sunrise: April 2, 2023 to May 3, 2023
  • Early Access Period: May 3, 2023 to May 10, 2023
  • General Availability: May 15, 2023

    The Early Access Period works like a "Dutch Auction". Prof-Domains are getting cheaper by the day. If you are interested, please send us an email to get the details.

    The Prof-Domain is a domain of first choice for companies and organizations whose target group or members are made up of composed of teachers and professors. Google Registry writes about the new Prof domains:

    ".Prof is for professors. Show off your teaching credentials, research, and publications with a .prof domain".

    The standard Prof-Domain costs 39 US-Dollars/year at the General Availability.

    It is advisable to pre-register for the individual phases now in order to secure your desired Prof in good time.

    For many domain extensions, Prof at the sunrise period are more expensive than the Prof at the General Availability. Standard and Premium Prof-Prof at the Sunrise Period cost as much as at the General Availability - and you still get a 15% discount. The entire .Prof-Domain TLD has been added to the HSTS preload list, which means registrants will have to provision and set up SSL certificates in order for their content to be loaded in modern browsers

    The Prof-Domain is a secure namespace, meaning that HTTPS is required for all .Prof-Domain websites. You can buy your Prof-Domain now, but in order for it to work properly in browsers you must first configure HTTPS serving. You can acquire webspace with pre-configured encryption at us without any additional costs or SSL Certificates.

    Whether you're building a website for school, launching a side project, or expanding your business's online presence, there are basic steps to take to protect your website's content and your users' information (especially if you are collecting personal or financial information).

    1. Install a SSL certificate. As a website creator, you should ensure that traffic to your website is HTTPS-encrypted. By encrypting traffic to a website, you ensure that any communications to or from that website cannot be seen by an eavesdropper. If you were to mail a letter that contains a private message or your personal information, would you rather send it on a postcard or in an envelope? The envelope is the physical equivalent of HTTPS because it prevents parties who have access to the envelope on its way to the recipient from reading or changing its contents.

    Installing SSL allows you to encrypt data on your website. Websites that have an SSL certificate use HTTPS, as opposed to HTTP (which means that a connection is not encrypted). Major browsers may also show a lock sign next to a secure connection and warn users if the website is not secure.

    How to get SSL:
    You can buy webspace at us and get at one click installed SSL for free or you fetch yourself free certificates at Let's Encrypt

    2. Make sure your entire website is encrypted. Many website owners donft realize that a single page that isnft encrypted could potentially be used to gain access to the rest of the website. To avoid this, you need encryption on your entire website, not just for pages that are collecting credit card numbers or log-in info. Even unencrypted landing pages that redirect to an HTTPS page can pose risks. A single page that is unencrypted can become a backdoor for bad actors to snoop on the rest of the site.

    How to ensure encryption:

  • Use a top-level domain that is HSTS-preloaded. The HSTS preload list is a list of websites which modern browsers will only load over an encrypted connection. The fastest way to get on this list is to use a top-level domain that's already on the HSTS preload list, like .app, .Prof-Domain, or .page. Any website on those extensions gets the security benefits of HSTS-preloading from day one, so all you need to do is install your SSL certificate.
  • Alternatively, you can add your website to the HSTS preload list yourself. Websites can be individually added to the HSTS preload list by the website owner at . Keep in mind this can be a slow process because the list is manually built into the browser. That means updates to the list are made as new browser releases come out, which can take months to occur for all browsers.

    You can pre-register your name at the Prof-Domain here. The pre-registration is free of charge but binding. If we secure the name you want for you, you will have to pay the domain fee.

    We offer several hundred New Top Level Prof for pre-registration. If you can't find your Prof, you can find the most important New Top Level Prof on the website New Top Level Prof and the larger Alphabetical list of new top level Prof. You can also use our search engine to search.
