Where the Domain Name Industry Comes Together

NamesCon is the premier conference series for the domain name industry. With events online and around the world, we bring together the decision-makers and investors who build and grow this person-to-person business.

Who We Are

Since its founding in 2013, NamesCon’s flagship event in Las Vegas has grown into the largest and most anticipated domain industry event of the year. With the explosive growth of new TLDs and rapid expansion of internet connectivity worldwide, the domain industry promises to remain one of the most energized and important markets in technology. Drawing over 1,000 registrations for its first all-digital edition during the COVID-19 pandemic, NamesCon grows and evolves with the domain industry—and the wider world in which we all coexist.

NamesCon was acquired by WorldHostingDays in 2016 so that both organizations could benefit from the synergies between the domain, hosting and cloud industries. Our teams now jointly produce more than ten industry events internationally each year, from blockbuster global shows to highly focused regional events and invite-only CXO retreats. These include NamesCon Europe—formerly Domaining Europe, an intimate gathering of domain-related professionals—and DOMAINfest, a globe-trotting series of events that began in 2012.

I want to thank everyone who took the time to reach out and say nice things about the NamesCon session I had with @BillSweetman.
