HostingCon comes to the Lone Star State.
The web hosting industry is descending on Austin, Texas next month for HostingCon. The event will take place at the Austin Convention Center July 19-21. Tickets are still available, starting at $489 for the entire three day conference.
I’ve identified a number of domain name related companies that will be in attendance and/or exhibiting:
Dark Blue Sea
So why would domain companies come to a hosting show? Two main reasons:
1. Most domain name registrars make a good chunk of their revenue from web hosting add-on sales.
2. Web hosts are a good channel for selling domain registrations.
dotMobi will no doubt push for web hosts to offer .mobi domains to their customers and provide mobile web site building applications. VeriSign and Afilias will likely push their security and DNS solutions.
HostingCon is organized by iNET Interactive.
