HostingCon Opens Registration for 2011 Event

November 9, 2010Domain Services, Domaining, Domainnamewire, hostingconComments Off on HostingCon Opens Registration for 2011 Event

Early bird registration now available for next year’s HostingCon.

HostingCon has opened registration for its 2011 event in San Diego, CA. The show will take place August 8 – 10, 2011 at the San Diego Convention Center.

I attended last year’s event in Austin. There were about 1,500 people in attendance, over 100 exhibitors, and a lot of domain name companies. Some of the domain companies that exhibited last year include:

Afilias
DotMobi
eNom
ResellerClub and Logic Boxes
VeriSign
Yexa / Dark Blue Sea
OpenSRS/Tucows

A number of domain name registrars integrate with web hosts, so it makes sense for them to meet their partners. Domain sales companies such as Afternic and Sedo were also there, as was Oversee.net.

The early bird rate is $279 for a full conference pass until the end of the year.

HostingCon Kicks Off in Austin

Web hosting conference kicks off in Austin, Texas.

The annual HostingCon conference kicked off in Austin this morning, with organizers expecting 1,500 or more attendees. I count over 115 vendors who will be showing their wares on Tuesday and Wednesday. A number of exhibitors are domain name companies who want to get hosting companies to sell their products including domain name registrations. Among the domain name companies are:

Afilias
DotMobi (which is running the official HostingCon mobile site at hostingcon.mobi)
eNom
ResellerClub and Logic Boxes
VeriSign
Yexa (new product from Dark Blue Sea)
OpenSRS/Tucows

Of course there are bunch more domain companies here that aren’t exhibiting, including DomainSponsor.

There are a number of parallels between a web hosting conference and a domain name conference. It’s primarily men and primarily tech geeks.

You can follow the conference at #hostingcon.
