Radix has some news out today that the Consumer Electronics Show or CES has made the move from CESWEB.org to CES.Tech. This is a sensible change as CESWEB is a bit clunky. CES.com does not resolve and CES.org is a developed website for Cooperative Educational Services.
Here is the release:
Radix Registry today announced that the Consumer Electronics Show (popularly known as CES) has officially migrated from their old domain name WWW.CESWEB.ORG to the more relevant and defining CES.TECH.
The Consumer Electronics Show is the largest consumer technology trade show across the globe, attracting large tech brands and fledging startups. CES this year had an attendance of over 170,000 gathered at a 2.47M net square feet of exhibit space.
“We stand for innovation and the promise of a better world made possible by technology. CES® is well-known as the world’s foremost innovation event & we’re happy to have selected a domain name in .TECH that conveys what we stand for in a succinct way.” – Jeff Joseph, SVP, Communications and Strategic Relationships, Consumer Technology Association
In November 2015, CES’s parent company – the Consumer Technology Association, migrated from the 2-character .org domain name ce.org to CTA.TECH, demonstrating faith and belief in .TECH domains, which then was only 2 months into General Availability.
.TECH continues to garner attention from not only brands such as CES, Microsoft & Baidu, but also really cool tech startups, tech influencers and tech associations. You can find more information about these here (startup.tech). .TECH has seen a steady growth in registrations with over 100K domains and 600+ sites in the Alexa 1M in just 10 months; but its success and strength is defined by the global acceptance it has received from the tech sector since its launch.
.TECH has clearly made its mark as the defining moniker for the global technology industry.
