June 2013, Astutium staff braved the high temperatures in Austin, Texas, USA to join the 2013 HostingCon industry conference and networking events.

The title of the conference this year was “Raise Your Game – Network, Learn, Grow” and it certainly provided the perfect platform and ample opportunities to facilitate just that.

HostingCon gives attendees superb opportunities to come face-to-face with the people behind the leading technologies and encourages everyone to forge new partnerships and to strengthen existing relationships with clients, suppliers and peers.

The annual HostingCon event also gives delegates many opportunities for formal meetings during the day and ample, well-organised social events in the evenings, to give the very best chance to exchange ideas and to learn from each other in a more relaxed environment.

Astutium staff have attended every HostingCon since it started in 2003 !

The days are packed with sessions on topics within Sales and Marketing, Technology, along with issues, trends and management. There is also a wealth of diverse and knowledgeable speakers. There are many occasions that allowed questions to leading decision makers and influencers at all levels of internet issues.

The hot topics included Cloud hosting, problems and innovaions, DDOS mitigation, law enforcement issues, changes within the Domain name sector and assistance with brand marketing.

Astutium took the opportunity to discuss at length direct the issues we are currently seeing with software authors, hardware suppliers and marketing organisations.

We also gave voice to the many regulation issues that may be affecting the domain and hosting industry over the months to come – ICANN policy changes, Domain Registrant validation/verification changes, and increased Governmental interference in Internet Governance in both the EU and the US.

All in all it was a very beneficial week to Astutium and to their customers for the future and we will be continuing the dialogue with suppliers and implementing many of the industry improvements we discussed over the coming months.

If you would like any further details of the topics discussed please contact Astutium
