Namecheap Economic and Excellent Web Hosting Services

What do you like best?

About 5 years ago I met Namecheap.com, I fell in love with their prices, nowadays, it is the main provider that has security solutions, they provide all the security certificates that we distribute in our company. At present our prices are even lower than the ones on the web since they have kind of an affiliate system, the more products you buy, the cheaper it is. I really like the platform since it is basically all automated from the customer control panel. It is very easy to use, it is not necessary to have so much knowledge to buy and manage your products and have a good knowledge base that can help you in anything, besides you have other options available to contact namecheap.

What do you dislike?

The only point that I do not really see negative because it is not at the level of product, but at the level of web version, that I would like it to be available in more languages, mainly in Spanish for Spanish speakers.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you start using namecheap, I recommend you continue using it as a provider to lower costs in your new purchases.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Really what I solve with this is a cost issue, with the prices offered by namecheap.com I can offer a better cost in my country, and thus be able to compete with other local suppliers.

Cheapest Domain Registrar in the Market

What do you like best?

I have used many domain registrars in the past few years and Namecheap is one of the best and cheapest out there. the service is really impressive, they give you not only the cheapest domains but register them instantaneously. the are hundreds of TLD to choose from which includes the latest Generic TLD's. another impressive thing is the payment system, they accept multiple payment methods including bitcoins which i find really helpful and most of the other registrars do not accept it. the domains start from as low as 48 cents and go up, you can also get a discount if you order in bulk quantities. the managing domain in Namecheap is also really easy, there are bulk managing tools that help you in updating domain setting like Nameservers of multiple domains easily. the support is impressive, they respond quickly and fixes most of your problems instantaneously. they also offer free whois guard to protect the info of their customer for one year, which is really awesome.

What do you dislike?

their nameserver propagation is really bad and takes hours before updating it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

best Domain Registrar

What do you like best?

As far as pricing is con concerned, it's like the cheapest in the market. the domain pricing starts at 48 cents which is pretty awesome. also, they have a wide range of TLD's to select your perfect domain from, gives the user a great option for personalization. they also provide the cheapest option available for .ai domains which I find really helpful. all domains come with a free WHOIS guard to save the privacy of the user. the user interface is very clean and easy to navigate through, also they accept PayPal and bitcoins as payment options. as far as hosting is taken into account, the specifications all are unlimited and lets you offer many domains. another great perk of Namecheap is the security system, domain and account are really secured which gives you a feeling of security unlike most of the services out there.. Namecheap also got mobile apps which is really awesome, also they provide free SSH access to the servers and i find it really helpful.

What do you dislike?

the customer service is poor, they really take a long time to respond to your queries which can be irritating. I once had trouble with the free SSL that came with the domain and they said they don't have support for free SSL's provided and eventually i had to remove it from the site to keep it running. as for hosting, the servers aren't great at performance and can get laggy sometimes.;

Recommendations to others considering the product

its the cheapest option in the market for Domain Registration, go for it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Great Registrar, Average Host

What do you like best?

The Domain Registration in Namecheap is cheap like dirt cheap. I changed to Namecheap mainly because of this only. they also offer a wide verity of Tld including the modern tlds. i once got a Domain Registered with them for just over 50 cents. another great thing about Namecheap is their Support, its just of Top Quality. they reply Quickly to your Queries. they also offer Bitcoin payments which are helpful as far as I'm concerned. The interface is Really great and easy to navigate around the site. another great thing about Namecheap is How they Install Wordpress on your server without any 3rd party additional plugins which can be annoying. also, they provide you with one-year Free Domain Privacy.

What do you dislike?

The Hosting is not up to the mark. it's great if you're Hosting small websites with minimum traffic. when you Scale up to more than 4-5 sites things get Complicated. the Memory Cap Provided by them is very low and can cause troubles especially if you're using too much PHP on your Website.

Recommendations to others considering the product

its the Best place to register your Domains.

Since I found Namecheap, I've been very happy with their services

What do you like best?

It's very simple to buy domains there. The customer and technical support are more than 5 stars, they actually pay attention to what you're saying and they do their best to understand your requirement, it seems as if they never give you canned responses. They actually care about you and if your case is solved. If you need a refund, it's also no-questions-asked (so long as you're still in the refund period of grace). A big plus is that they make very clear what you're buying in your shopping cart.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the pagination of the marketplace are doesn't work. Most of the time it doesn't. When you're trying to "fish" expiring or cheap domains in their marketplace, you might not get past of page 6 or so, so the pagination is broken or otherwise not working properly. To work around this you have to apply filters to really segment what you're looking for and/or is available to buy.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Buy domains (or services) while you are logged in. If you're logged out that will just add friction to your checkout process.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

They have a very fast and no-nonsense support. The checkout process is really friction-less, so if you're in a rush you can buy fast the domain you need. Tagging domains makes easy to manage your domain portfolio, specially if you have to take care of domain branding for your customers.

Tech Support! In 18 Years, No Other Hosting Company Comes Close...

What do you like best?

I've been building websites since the 90's, and used so many hosting companies I've lost count. But I've never found any company whose tech support team was as knowledgeable, and well-prepared as Namecheap's.

When it's 3.00am, and you've been wrestling with some crazy website connectivity issue for the last 6 hours, you're hyper-aware you have to do the draft handover the final site to the client at 9:00am, and you finally give in and contact the hosting company to help you out, you really want the people you're chatting with on the other end to KNOW what the heck they're talking about! And Namecheap's staff somehow, always do.

I don't care about their website builder and all of that superfluous tosh; what I need is decent geeky nerds on hand who know what they're doing!

They're not the cheapest of the hosting companies out there, but a couple of dollars extra per month are definitely worth it for the quality and the great support. But you can always pick up a nice little discount on new hosting accounts and domain name purchases.

Don't cheap out when it comes to your business people!!!

Also, there's no denying they have the best up-time, and the simplest purchasing process in their class. I like that kind of convenience.

Finally, I rather like that they're involved in the fight to keep the web free and clear of external over-regulation.

What do you dislike?

I don't think that only providing chat and email support is the best; sometimes it's nice to talk with support, so a telephone support service would be nice to see.

Having said that, I've never had a support issue go unsolved, so I guess they don't need it!

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're worried about having one company be in charge of all of your online entities in case something goes wrong, buy your HOSTING with Namecheap, and purchase your domains elsewhere.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I need reliable, fast, secure hosting with constant up-time, and absolutely excellent tech support. Namecheap delivers on all counts, and have done for the past 6 years.
