Web Summit was created in Dublin in 2010 by Paddy Cosgrave. This year for the fifth annual summit, more than 30,000 attendees and 1,000 speakers. Over the course of just three days, twenty-one cycles of conferences covering the themes you might expect in a tech conference like design, marketing, e-commerce, Big Data (how could it not, really), as well as topics you might not expect, like mobile healthcare and the question of whether we actually live in a post-capitalist society.

So, to celebrate both this amazing event and the beautiful city of Dublin where Web Summit is taking place for the last time before it moves to Lisbon next year (a beautiful city as well, don't get us wrong), we've concocted our own Happy Hour special.

Through Web Summit, from November 2 through November 5, domains in the .BEER.PUB.BAR and .IRISH TLDs are at half price if you register them for one year during Happy Hour. But, of course, Happy Hour doesn't last all night. This deal is only valid on each of these days between the hours of 5:00 PM and 7:00 PM in Dublin (same as UTC).


So, join us for a .beer (in an .irish .pub or .bar) during Web Summit, and if you're lucky enough to be one of the 30,000 attendees, tweet us @gandi_net so we can meet up for Irish beer IRL too!
