WorldHostingDays choose .GLOBAL in recent rebranding

February 27, 2015 – WorldHostingDays, the world’s largest series of events for the hosting and cloud service market, uniting 6000+ visitors from 85 countries, has changed its main online branding from a .com domain to .global, choosing the domain WHD.global. By an agreement with Dot Global Domain Registry, the organization operating the new .global domain extension, the premium domain name for the global event was secured to support the rebranding and the message that it sends to businesses worldwide.

“We chose to re-brand using the .global domain ending, because it allows a domain name much more catchy and perfectly describes the global focus of our events for the hosting and cloud industry,” says Thomas Strohe, founder of WorldHostingDays.

“Using the right domain name to brand a global presence or express a global ambition is important to both startups and large enterprises”, says Rolf Larsen, CEO of Dot Global (.global). “This is where the new domain name ending .GLOBAL comes to great use”.

WHD.global gathers every year leading experts and knowledge from the IT industry, an industry containing a significant number of thriving micro.globals – start-ups and SMEs with international products or services that, regardless of size or location, easily can boost their global reach through relevant and strong online branding.

For WorldHostingDays, rebranding to WHD.global while continuing to provide high-value content events creates a forum that paves the way for the next generation of borderless innovations and businesses.

The upcoming 2015 WHD.global event in Germany on March 24-26 holds an impressive list of participants and speakers, such as Monty Widenius, the creator of MySQL and MariaDB, Apple co-founder Steven Wozniak, Eugene Kaspersky and a super exclusive Q&A with whistleblower Edward Snowden and Sarah Harrison from WikiLeaks.
