NameCheap.com domain registrar review

NameCheap.com is the first ever domain registrar I have registered a domain with, and is the best domain registrar in my opinion. At the time of writing this article the domain name webhostingdisk.com is registered with namecheap itself. Namecheap was (or still is??) a reseller of Enom domain registrar for a long time and only got its ICANN-accredited status about two or three years ago. The company runs with one of the best business practices.  I am not sure if the company is still offering domain registrations under Enom (as a reseller of them) or under their own ICANN-accredited registrar status but what I am sure is it is the best domain registrar out there from the whole service standpoint. Their prices are still cheaper than most other domain registrars, their features are great, their customer care service is excellent (both live chat and support ticket system).

At the time of writing this article NameCheap offers new domain registrations for about 20 to 25 different domain TLDs. The pricing of the top three generic TLDs at namecheap is $10.16 for a new .com, $10.16 for a new .net and $9.69 for a new .org domain registration. With every applicable new domain registration with namecheap you would get one year of free WhoisGuard privacy valued at $2.88 a year, this is the best feature as far as I am concerned. Some other free but great features you would get with a new domain registration with NameCheap are Free URL forwarding, free email forwarding, custom DNS settings, Custom NameServer registration (free of cost) etc. And like every other domain registrar the company offers low prices for incoming domain transfers. The prices of the domain transfers for the top three TLDs with namechaep at the time of writing this article are $9.16 for .com and .net TLDs and $9.69 for .org TLDs, needless to say that you would get one year registration extension with every domain transfer with no extra cost.

And NameCheap.com domain registrar’s customer support is one of the best and friendly customer support on the entire web. I only contacted them 3 or 4 times to clarify some doubts and resolve some issues but from my experience from those 3 or 4 instances I can tell you that their support (livechat and support ticket system) have great coordination between themselves and gives you exactly what you want, and even more information for your peace of mind in most cases. One time I created a support ticket to clarify some doubts I had with transferring one of my domains to name.com (I just wanted to save a couple of quick bucks from transferring to name.com and no other reasons) and they gave me all the information I needed even when they are losing a domain in outgoing transfer to other registrar. The LiveChat lasted for about 20 minutes and they gave me more information than I actually needed, just for my peace of mind, with a great friendly attitude. Thanks for your caring for your customers NAMECHEAP, You guys Rock!!

Finally, what I wanted to tell you from this article is if you want to register new domains or transfer your existing domains to a good domain registrar, never forget there is a great buddy-like domain registrar called NameCheap.com on the web, which offers cheap domain registrations, transfers with great customer service and support. Namecheap also offers SSL certificates, Web Hosting. If you have got time to test the services offered by them, take a moment and visit their site. But since I have heard that even most of the great domain registrars fail at offering web hosting services on par with giant web hosts like Hostgator, Bluehost, Hostmonster etc. So that should be only your choice if you want to go with NameCheap for your web hosting needs or test their shared web hosting or Virtual Private Servers.
