Why the name?

I'm curious. We all know what con means - So why the chosen name of Hosting Con?

Yes, the Con on the end signifies "convention" or "conference" ... there are many examples of using Con on the end of the name to signify convention or conference, but a couple I can think of right now are ISPCON and DefCon.
