LeWeb today announced that it has officially rebranded its web address to the short, memorable LeWeb.co.

Founded in 2008 by Geraldine and Loïc Le Meur, LeWeb has grown to become Europe’s premier technology conference, attracting the Internet’s best and brightest entrepreneurs, executives, investors, bloggers, developers, tech enthusiasts and thought leaders from around the world.

“The Internet is moving faster than ever, so we need to continuously adapt to keep up,” said Loïc Le Meur, “we switched to the .CO domain because we believe it better reflects the spirit and ethos of the LeWeb brand – which is all about looking to the future and driving creativity online.”

In less than two years since it launched, the .CO domain has established itself as the global URL of choice for innovators and entrepreneurs.  “We’re proud to be joining innovative companies like Twitter (t.co), Angel List (Angel.co) and 500 Startups (500.co), as well as the thousands of pioneering startups from around the world who are building the future of the Internet on the .CO platform,” said Le Meur.
