All of its products are researched and tested to meet or exceed industry safety standards. Namecheap offers a variety of services:
Namecheap powers over 1.5 million websites of every size and budget through shared, WordPress, reseller, VPS, and dedicated server plans.
Namecheap’s experience in domain registration is evident through its management of over 10 million domains. With the company’s free Beast Mode, consumers can search thousands of domains in seconds, filter and prioritize results, and select and purchase domains all in one place.
Beast Mode helps consumers find domains through domain hacks, category selection, alternative suggestions, and collaboration mode with other friends or colleagues. In addition to domain registration through Beast Mode, Namecheap offers domain transfers, personal domain registrations, PremiumDNS, and FreeDNS services.
Through Namecheap’s shared web hosting plans, clients have access to a free website builder that contains over 200 fully equipped templates. For clients with existing sites, Namecheap makes transferring their website easy through the website builder’s import ability. The website builder has a user friendly drag and drop interface and has E-commerce payment tools and gateways such as Paypal, Skrill, and Easypay. Sites made through Namecheap’s website builder have responsive designs; the website will look professional across all devices whether it be a phone, tablet, or computer.
With each domain registration, Namecheap provides free lifetime WhoIsGuard privacy protection to keep sensitive data safe. When a domain is registered, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) requires contact information from the registrar that is added to an accessible database. WhoIsGuard protects this contact information from spammers, marketing firms, etc. by displaying generic WhoIs contact information. It is guaranteed by Namecheap as the best domain privacy protection.
Namecheap is renowned for its competitive and affordable pricing. The company offers various deals for its services and products ranging from domains and SSL certificates to email and hosting packages. A majority of the deals are for the first year of service. Namecheap maintains transparency by disclosing the regular pricing that will be charged following the first year of service so clients are not caught off guard.
Although Namecheap has a 30-day money-back guarantee, it is not as generous as other competitors. HostGator has a 45-day money-back guarantee and Dream Host, InMotion, and Web Hosting Hub have 90-day money-back guarantees.
