Blockchain: Tomorrow's Namespace

Blockchain will be a primary content pillar for NamesCon Global 2018

Buy your tickets now using Bitcoin or Ether

NamesCon strives to nurture an open community where people from all industries, nationalities, companies and perspectives can come together to share ideas. As an organization, our goal is to become an incubator for innovation, and one of the biggest industry disruptors we currently see on the horizon is blockchain.

To celebrate this technology and encourage its adoption, we’ve made it possible to register with Bitcoin or Ether!

In addition, we’re pleased to share a promotional offer with Nametoken, the world’s first decentralized domain marketplaces, built using blockchain. As a special offer, until September 30, 2017 Nametoken is offering free nametokens (NAT) with your NamesCon ticket purchase. NATs can be used for registering, listing, parking, buying and selling domains on Nametoken’s decentralized domain marketplace.

Read the whitepaper on Nametoken to learn more.

Please note: NamesCon and WorldHostingDays strive to share information about up and coming technology that is relevant to our industry. The offer with Nametoken is neither an invitation nor a proposal to invest.

NamesCon Global 2018

NamesCon Global is the largest annual domain-industry conference, attracting attendees from around the globe. Attendees will experience compelling keynotes, informative panels, and hands-on workshops led by industry experts. Aside from the actionable content you'll see on stage, NamesCon also facilitates valuable personal connections through engaging social events and structured business networking opportunities. 

NamesCon will connect you to all aspects of the domain industry, from registrars, registries, web hosting companies, attorneys, brand managers, domain name investors, start-ups, affiliate marketing companies, parking companies, financial service providers, individual end-users, and everyone else in between! Surveyed attendees tell us every year that the networking at NamesCon is second to none.

This is an energetic, 4-day event set against the backdrop of fabulous Las Vegas, so you'll have no shortage of activities to fill your schedule!
