2020 has been the year of the online conference. Thanks to Covid-19 many conferences including NamesCon moved online. With that move has come a greater use for .online as the conference website.
Radix (an advertiser here) published a post showing 8 conferences using their .online extension.

Virtual Events 2020: 8 Major Events That Are Now .ONLINE
2020 has turned out to be a definitive yet uncertain year in many aspects. Most countries across the globe had strict shelter-in-place orders that have forced businesses to reconsider how to stay connected with their customers and stakeholders. One of the most obvious transitions of this pandemic has been industry events that had to go virtual. With access to high-speed internet and applications that allow participants to ask questions and give feedback; virtual events have taken over ‘real world’ events while keeping social distancing in check. Despite being miles away, people can still catch up with their business partners or engage with a speaker who is presenting in a home studio in a completely different country. This is primarily the reason why so many conferences and events around the world have transformed themselves into their virtual versions on relevant .ONLINE domain names. And as we celebrate five successful years of .ONLINE this year, it’s also the perfect time and opportunity to highlight some of the world’s biggest events that are now online on .ONLINE.
1. www.namescon.online | 9th to 11th September 2020
Since its founding in 2013, NamesCon has grown to be one of the largest annual domain industry events. With the spectacular growth of internet connectivity and new domain extensions worldwide, the domain industry remains one of the most driven and important markets in technology. Talking about their transition online, Namescon remarked, “While we thought NamesCon 360° was a cool name, encompassing the entire world; we think NamesCon Online is clearer and more concise in describing an all-digital domaining conference that reaches the entire world at once. This also highlights the creativity you can unlock through the right domain name: in telling your audience what you’re called, you’re also telling them how to find you. It’s the ultimate elevator pitch.”
