In honor of the launch of .GAMES, “Name.com guy” Jared Ewy and I are packing our bags for TwitchCon from Sept. 30 to Oct. 2 to get all you gamers attending up to speed. The .GAMES domain will give the gaming industry a creative and unique branding tool to promote upcoming game and console releases, a place for gamer forums, and even a specific domain for live stream gaming events like TwitchCon.

We’ll be meeting with TwitchCon broadcasters and developers to discuss the .GAMES domain and upcoming game releases. Over the course of three days, attendees will partake in panels to discuss building your brand, growing fan bases, getting sponsored, and even a Cosplay contest (flashback to our office Cosplay Day).

.GAMES is a great fit for a variety of markets, from online and offline video games, to team sports, to classic board games, to casino gaming and more. Just like your gamer tag, domains help express identity. So, why not be a #trendsetter by pre-registering your .GAMES domain before someone else snags your gaming identity. Put your brand on the leaderboard.
