"Complete solution for domains and hosting, at the best price."

What do you like best?

Namecheap is the best service for buying domains, hosting, servers and other services in the cloud at the best price, it is incredible the prices offered by this site, compared to others that provide the same features, but charge a lot of money, I have acquired super cheap domains from $ 0.90 to perform different tests of sites on the web, also its hosting service is the cheapest on the entire web, to be so cheap, has the same characteristics of other sites, a Cpanel, with all the necessary features, to mount all kinds of projects on the web.

What do you dislike?

Some domains, with known extensions are a bit expensive, to find domains at a good price, you should use another type of little commercial extensions, which are directed to personal projects, but at the time of giving them a commercial use, for companies, businesses or stores, you have to pay a high amount for them, also the renovation is somewhat higher, and does not take into account, the antiquity of any customers, for which there should be special offers.

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

We can save costs in web hosting, without detracting from the quality of the services offered online, we also have available hundreds of domains for less than 1 dollar, to try different business ideas, we have in mind, without spending hundreds of dollars, here we can do tests, almost free, with domains and independent servers, even insignificant price.

"One of the Cheapest option"

What do you like best?

Namecheap sells the domain at a very cheap rate compared to other services. The flat rate is not just on some of these domains, but you can see that they are offering huge discounts on a wide range of domains.

The support is outstanding, I mean their live chat is online all the times, and they always help you out, this is one of the prime reason why I chose Namecheap. They have really little spam messages and still sent out domain updates. The security options are excellent, and you can even add a two factor authentication in case you need extra protection. when making a purchase on Namecheap you can choose from a lot of payment options including cards and PayPal, one of the options I found very convenient to use is the ability to pay your bills with bitcoins which become a trend last year, and I was able to pay the bills on time when there was a problem with my card.

What do you dislike?

Nothing much here, I would really appreciate it if they can offer some discount on TLDs like .com and .net.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Well this is one of the most reliable domain registrations services there and i recommend you to try them

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

Namecheap provides domain registration services, they offer a wide range of TLDs to choose from including the latest gTLDs

"An expert with domains and hosting!"

What do you like best?

Namecheap is the best domain registrar I've used. The panel is simple and intuitive and their 24/7 support team is helpful. Namecheap has also been rock solid reliable for website hosting and their Private Email Hosting service!

What do you dislike?

Their 24/7 support team often takes 20-30 minutes to solve basic issues. Also, their prices aren't the most competitive but they are still reasonable compared to places like GoDaddy.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for a simple and reliable web host, email host, or domain registrar, I would highly recommend Namecheap. If you are looking for the cheapest prices, they won't be for you. If you are looking for quality service that is worth paying a bit extra for, Namecheap is the best out there.

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

Namecheap allows us to secure our domain names and get professional and reliable email hosting so we can communicate with our customers and have the various websites and URLs we need.

"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.

"Fastest server speed at very affordable rate"

What do you like best?

Free domain name and Comodo SSL for 1 year

What do you dislike?

Nothing for now but something facing issue with live support team

Recommendations to others considering the product

Namecheap is definitely one of the most simple interfaced websites I have come across. I came across this website when I was surfing the internet in the search of a suitable registrar and web hoster for my website.

Their prices were shockingly too low with apt disk space and domains available at cheap rates. They surely have taken their firm name seriously and kept the prices this low for registration of new websites. Nevertheless, I took the WordPress hosting with them and I was amazed at the easiest and quickest manner it got worked. The Wordpress setup and interface were all done within an hour, all that was required was uploading of content. Their easyWP provided me with quickly start with my website moreover, it was quite easy to maintain the website with their customer supported few guided clicks.  

Though initially, they had various plan limitations they are modified them in recent times. With the mediocre level of customer support, they are enhancing it with time. With my decent associations with Namecheap, I would recommend it to anyone who desires more features in less budget. So, if your concerned about the price than NameCheap would be the best possible option to go for!

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

I added up more than 20 domains and all of them are still working smoothly.So SSD-Accelerated Disk Space is working fine

"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.

"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.

"Nice Host Provider for Small Budgets"

What do you like best?

I really enjoy that I could get a website domain and hosting account for under $20! Other hosts have 1 year terms but expect to pay at least $60 for the year

What do you dislike?

It is not user-friendly at all. Luckily I am an IT professional and trudged my way through setting up. It would be really difficult for a beginner, and they should expect to talk many times to customer service for help.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you just want a simple 5 minute set up I would not suggest Namecheap. It has a huge learning curve but if you're patient, Customer Service is very helpful. Great for saving money but you get what you pay for. Not the fastest servers and not a known hosting provider so there aren't tons of helpful forums about it.

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

Getting a self-hosted website for one year at an inexpensive rate.

"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.

"Great prices, products and support are exactly why we're a long term customer."

What do you like best?

Namecheap has a hassle-free domain name search system, allowing easily find the right domain without the complexity of other providers. Prices are very reasonable, with coupons being actively promoted on their website and NO hidden fees or taxes. Their support team is very quick to respond, especially with their live chat system. After 6 years of use, they have never failed to resolve any issues within a matter of minutes. You can also integrate their API with your systems - we use this to sell domain names through our own website, delivering access and control of the domain to our clients through our own site and branding. It's also worth noting that their DNS servers are very quick to adapt, with the ability to get the domain pointed to a website within minutes of registration. WHOIS privacy protection is free for the first year, followed by a small fee, while SSLs can be purchased for under $3 USD with a new domain!

What do you dislike?

Other than the inability to change a username and some other account settings, we have no major issues with Namecheap.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're using any other companies, it's definitely worth the switch! They're helpful, reliable and most definitely affordable. They have never failed us or caused us to consider moving away.

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

Namecheap allows us to instantly register and access domains at very affordable prices. This allows us to get clients' websites up and running when needed.

"Namecheap is the best hosting and domain name provider"

What do you like best?

On the internet some people say that one can find other hosting and domain name providers that are better than namecheap. They are wrong. For buying domain names, namecheaap is simply the best! For hosting namecheap is better than 90% of the hostng providers. For me it is number one. Namecheap is a Russian company, and they have their data centers in Europe and USA. When you buy your hosing you can choose where your site is going to be hosted. Great if you have the site in english and hosted in USA. Namecheap is also the cheapest provider on the internet for the domain names and hosting. A com domain name is 10 USD, and the cheapest hosting is 10 USD. (if you renew it is 39.99 USD). No other companies have such cheapest hosting on the web. The speed of the hosting is in top 10% of the companies. And their support is great! You can call them at any hour and they will make the impossible to help you. You get to talk with young people, people that know to help you. So choose namecheap, although this is a Russian company is better than other dedicated hosting providers like HostGator or iPage.

What do you dislike?

For site speed there are some companies (dedicated hosting providers) that are better but this company is in top 10%.

Recommendations to others considering the product

In my opinion namecheap is the best domain name provider and hosting company on the web. Some could say tthat you can have dedicated hosting providers but for the price, speed, hosting and support this company is the best!

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

I have my own website hosted on namecheap www.show-my-homework.com Namecheap is great for hosting.

"Not all Domain registrars are the same"

What do you like best?

The name says it all - It should not cost vast amounts of money to register a domain! I started with Namecheap.com from a search. I was able to register several domains for my business for less than $15.00/yr TOTAL! They are even a few dollars less on the more popular .com domain.

What do you dislike?

The domain management was not as intuitive as some of the competitors. However, once I found what I was looking for add A records was simple.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do your comparisons first then go to Namecheap and you will see that they will save you money.

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

Nothing so much as business problem. I just needed to save money. I am a small business and I have to be vigilant with my dollars.

"It isn't always the cheapest, but the prices are still pretty good"

What do you like best?

Namecheap has a search feature which makes it quick and easy to search for available domains. They offer wide variety of TLDs at a very reasonable price – hence the name. There are DNS tools that help you with domain settings to get you connected to web and/or email host. They offer SSL certificates and privacy settings so your contact info isn't public. There are online resources and articles to help you get started or figure out how to find and use certain settings.

What do you dislike?

They definitely don't offer the lowest deals on all domain names. You can find better deals with discount codes or promotions at other domain registrars.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Namecheap is a reputable domain registrar with good value that I'd definitely recommend. Since quality of service for major domain registrars in general is about the same, I'd say just go with whichever one is cheapest.

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

We were able to register a domain with a trusted provider and didn't have any problem attaching the domain to our website. When we need help, we rarely have to get in touch with Namecheap support as they have plentiful and detailed documentation for most of their service features.

"Best Hosting for entry price"

What do you like best?

Namecheap is a great hosting platform for simple sites and purchasing domains. Their user interface is simple and modern. Their cPanel is great and modern and using it to point DNS to the right folder is easy to follow.

What do you dislike?

They recently started having affiliates email you about verifying your SEO. it confused a few of my new customers as they didn't realize it was optional addons that they were being sold.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Namecheap is much more modern, and responsive than any competitor of its price. This is the perfect solution for anybody that wants to leave GoDaddy or network Solutions

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

Namecheap is great for new or young businesses or businesses that can't justify spending $30 a month on hosting.

"Really cheap domain "

What do you like best?

I like that you can get domains for 48¢ for select T.L.Ds, and then even more T.L.Ds for just 88¢. Plus unlike GoDaddy,(which I use and they offer alot of stuff I use too, but lack this) they have a mobile app that you can manage your DNS settings from, and buy new domains.

What do you dislike?

For what it cost to buy a domain from their site, I can't really complain about it. They could update their systems though to be a little more modern, but there site and app are still effective now.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a good product, there's always worth in being able to purchase TLDs that cheap.

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

I buy different domains for each marketing project I work on. With Namecheap I can but full domains, instead of just making sub-domains, and it doesn't break the bank.

"A great price (and company) for domain registration`"

What do you like best?

I *love* Namecheap. There are many things I love about Namecheap. I've been registering domain names for more than 15 years, and for many years I was with that big company that makes controversial ads during a certain big football game. Now I'm with Namecheap, and I couldn't be happier.

First, Namecheap has great prices on domain registration. This is critical. I won't pay significantly more than I have to for domain registration. I'm very pleased with Namecheap's prices, which I find exceptionally competitive.

Second, updating my domains (and registering new domains) is drop-dead simple.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes I feel like it isn't as easy to find things as I would like. For example, if I'm in my account and I click on the Domains link in the menu, it brings me to a page where I can sign up for a new domain, rather than taking me to a place where I can manage all the domains already in my account.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Compare prices not only for initial registration, but for renewal. I can't find a better overall deal anywhere else. And the company is great!

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

I've been a paying NameCheap customer for several years, and I love working with them. It is the only place where I will register domain names and managing them is quite easy.

"Reliable Domain Name Partner"

What do you like best?

I’ve used them for 16 years, I trust them. Namecheap are reliable, cost effective and efficient. I have never had any serious problems with their domain name registration services.

If you’re connecting up your domain name to Google Mail, it’s really easy to do from an interface, you don’t need to mess about with the DNS records yourself.

It is relatively straight forward to manage your DNS registration from here, register your own hosted DNS.

What do you dislike?

They don’t have the functionality to properly manage Australian domain names (.com.au), performing tasks such as WHOIS updates for .com.au is not an easy task to complete with Namecheap

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

Namecheap may not be the ‘big brand’ that you’ve seen advertised on TV, on the radio, in newsletter or on large billboards, nor does it do crazy promotional deals, however in my experience and countless other webmasters it is reliable, trustworthy and efficient, with a good level of support.

It may be worth paying an immaterial couple of bucks more for domain name reliability in the grand scheme of things.

"A great option to buy your domains"

What do you like best?

I like a lot its Customer Support and the recurrent Domain offers. I used to buy my domains in GoDaddy until I had a bad experience with their service, so I tried Namecheap and I have no regrets. Let's me explain why.

First, their customer support. Few months ago, I was trying to buy a domain I bought the wrong one (yes, I made that mistake) and as soon as I realized that I ask for help. I told the whole story to the Customer Service and I ask for a change; I'd like to have the other domain name, not the one that I have just bought. They understood my problem, reversed the operation and let me to have the domain I wanted. And that took less than 10 minutes.

Second, their recurrent offers. I'm fascinated about their cheap domains, discount coupons and offers. Namecheap always have something great to boy without broke your bank account.

What do you dislike?

Their administration panel isn't the best one out there. I mean, it could have a better UI/UX or more options to configure a domain.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Yes, It's a GREAT site to buy your domains and everything else you need to have a secure presence in the web.

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

I'm solving a simple problem: the presence of my startup in the web. And the main benefit I have realized of that process is that I could buy the domains and the SSL certificates without expending too much and having a great customer support.

"Love Namecheap"

What do you like best?

I love namecheap because they always seem to have deals for transfers and use domain registrations, support is responsibly quick , I love the payment options that they offer, a wide range of payment options. A good list of tld on offer as well

What do you dislike?

Support can sometimes take sometime if the issue needs to be escalated, sometimes they decide to act on illegitimate copyright notices and suspend the domain as well as the account as a whole, I think they need to look in to see how legitimate those requests are

Recommendations to others considering the product

Quick and cheap, and the ability to pay using bitcoin

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

We have multiple of our domains registered through namecheap, quick and instant domain registrations

"No warning, scam"

What do you like best?

Nothing. They're a bad company to deal with.

What do you dislike?

They never warned me that my domain was expiring. I went in 4 days before expiration and they won't let me renew it.

They said it's going to be over $200 - and it's not even expired yet.

I've been a customer for many years now. This is the way they treat their customers.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go with any other domain provider

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

Nothing. I'm moving away from them.

+ Fast delivery ; when you buy a domain or a hosting plan from them , they really set it up withing minutes! or even seconds of your purchase ! i can assure that , from my experience.

+ Great discounts for your first registration Plan!

+ They provide you with an advanced Cpanel control where you can install every open source CMS like worpdressn , joolma , drupal .. with simple clocks! which saves you a lot of time setting up database account and installing your CMS manually

+ Highly skilled support guys

What do you dislike?

So far everything is alright , apart from a small problem i had in installing SSL certificate which was a fault from my part i did'n't synchronized the domain with the certificate properly , well when i contacted them they provided me with the right solution and i fixed the issue.

"Namecheap Review"

What do you like best?

I like the customer service, it is easier to navigate then my old hosting software GoDaddy. The cost is better in my opinion and coupons work more often.

What do you dislike?

I dislike it because my websites are slow now having added a third domain. I think a bit more guidance with how many domains can realistically be hosted on my package would have been helpful. I will probably get another package to host it seperately.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would suggest buying a longer package then a year, it is the most cost effective.

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

Not having to have all the tech answers, assistance with hosting, transferring domains.

"My favorite domain name registrar by far."

What do you like best?

Namecheap is the best. Registering domain names is easy. Their management system is simple and easy to learn. What I like best is that Namecheap's domain and privacy renewal prices are so much better than anywhere else. You can't find as many deals for Namecheap but renewing your domain more than 1 year always is cheaper with Namecheap. Their privacy protection is also much cheaper.

What do you dislike?

They don't offer as many deals as other companies, you rarely find $.99 domains or stuff like that. So you usefully are paying close to full price...the good news is their full price is lower than most everywhere else.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's easy to use, cheaper and my favorite domain registrar

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

We have registered domains, managed domains, and transferred domains with Namecheap. Its simple and effective.

"Almost Flawless Domain/Hosting"

What do you like best?

The process of obtaining a domain and hosting a site is straightforward and streamlines for quick and easy processing.

What do you dislike?

I wish the renewal processes was a little more clear when you not only have a domain, but are hosting as well. It seemed easy to get the two mixed up. Each expires at a different time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are in need of a domain name and hosting, look no further than Namecheap. Having been a customer for a few years now, the domain and site have worked flawlessly and the setup process is simple, painless, and straightforward. I highly recommend Namecheap.

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

As an organization Namecheap has allowed us to effectively host our sight without issue and at a reasonable cost. It has allowed us to get more pertinent information out to the people who need quick access.

"Switched to NameCheap and Never Looked Back!"

What do you like best?

What I like best about NameCheap is the price and quality technical support. I moved all my domains from GoDaddy.com and never looked back.

What do you dislike?

Hosted email with NameCheap is a little pricey, but I use email on the web servers, so no big deal.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Based on price alone, this is a smart move. You may not appreciate it as much if you only own a couple of domain names, but own hundreds of domain names and the cost savings is surprising each year. They are very easy to work with and I just love doing business with them. Will never go back to GoDaddy.com or Register.com.

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

A few dollars doesn't sound like much but when you are a web design and development firm dealing with hundreds of domain names, renewals and more, then it adds up. NameCheap is pretty much what their name implies - domain names for cheap. Never had a problem with them and the times I've had to contact tech support, they are always very helpful. Overall I'm very pleased with NameCheap and the dollars they save my company each year.

"Great service and the best customer support"

What do you like best?

I liked how the web interface is organized and that in case of any question, I can easily reach to the customer support. Their support is the best one I worked with so far. They are really trying to understand my needs and address them.

What do you dislike?

Everything was just fine, nothing to dislike. The service that the company has provided was sufficient for our needs. The only thing that could be done better is the 2FA verification using the Google Authenticator time-based and not onlu using phone number as sometimes the phone is not available.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend namecheap both for domain management and for SSL certificates. While buying with namecheap, test coupons available on-line on other sites. Just Google coupons. This may give you a little additional discounts.

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

We used Namecheap for corporate-wide SSL security and domain registration. We have realized the benefits of receiving full grade technical support from the technical team of the company as well as recommendations on how to use the service in more effective way.

"Best domain registrar out there, though still not ideal"

What do you like best?

As far as domain registrars go, namecheap has one of the best interfaces out there. The switchover from the old design to the new was a bit odd, but most of the site now look modern and sleek.

The prices and TLD options are competitive with every other registrar that I've looked into. In the end, this is probably the most important point.

A minor thing that does end up being quite nice is that I've found that changes to DNS records propagate quickly through namecheap -- not sure if that's just confirmation bias or a real effect, but when I've noticed it, it's been a pleasant surprise.

What do you dislike?

While namecheap's interface is nice compared to other registrars out there, it's not without its rough edges. When you compare it to a site like DigitalOcean, there are clearly user experience issues. A lot of things are more complicated than they need to be; this is partly due to the oddities of DNS records and the like, but there are clear ways it could be improved.

The only other downside is that not all TLDs are available, especially international ones. It would be nice to keep all my domains with a single registrar.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Check back regularly for promotional offers, as they come quite frequently.

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

We use namecheap to manage our domains. The costs are on par or cheaper than other options, and I find namecheap's interface easier to navigate than other registrars.

"Best, cheapest Domain Registration System"

What do you like best?

It is super easy to use their system for registering domain names and they consistently have the lowest prices for new and renewal registrations. We have moved all of our domains here.

What do you dislike?

It took us a while to get use to the new interface and some things still are not intuitive. Sometimes I wish I could go back to the old interface.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do the comparisons and run the numbers, especially when you are considering the long-term costs of renewing domain names. You will save a bundle with Namecheap and you will also be happy with their interface and support. They rarely let us down.

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

We manage all of our domain names here and in general are very happy with the service because it saves us money every month. The ease-of-use is also very high although it took us a while to get used to the new interface. Their updates are also lightning fast and extra features like domain privacy are very inexpensive compared to someone like a GoDaddy.

"Solid domain provider with great everyday value"

What do you like best?

They have good prices on domains of all types without the need for special discounts and promo codes like at other domain registrars. Managing DNS is easy with extensive tools and settings options. We can forward domains and change registrant contact info with ease. The namecheap control panel is simple and straightforward and there are instructions and online resources to help you.

What do you dislike?

There isn't much to dislike, especially since domain registration is such a straightforward process and not something you need to manage frequently. For me, it mainly comes down to price. There are times when other registrars can be cheaper with discount codes, so maybe if namecheap could offer some that would be nice.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This company has been around a while. If you want a domain registrar that is straightforward, low cost and helpful, then this a good company for you. You can maybe start off with another domain registrar that has a cheaper promotion, then transfer it to namecheap for subsequent registration years.

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

Being able to register a domain for our website and email with a reliable registrar. We're confident that things will be maintained properly, which is important since our domain name is such a central part of our business and branding. namecheap will send us reminders well before a domain is set to expire, so we can stay on top of things much easier.

"Excellent"

What do you like best?

I have been searching for a good registrar for a long time and since I've found namecheap I felt right at home. They've revamped the website's UI as well as the admin panel. The support is quite good and the prices fair. It feels safe, secure and reliable.

What do you dislike?

There are other companies that provide the same service for a bit less, if namecheap can bring down their prices a notch it would be just amazing, other than that, it's perfect. They have already addressed the issue of the old admin panel layout.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It has a great feature list, good-looking UI and incredible support. Even if you'd like to transfer your domains from namecheap they are not making it harder for you. You can register domains in bulk too. The service itself is very well made, as I stated before the website's UI has been fully updated to modern standards. They are also providing security features like Two Factor Authentications to keep you and your account safe.

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

Everything from domain name registration to SSL certificates and sometimes hosting. Now that they're providing a new DNS feature I might be try and use it as well.

"Great Customer Support"

What do you like best?

I use Namecheap for all of my hosting and domain needs. I am always on the site researching domain names that I can horde. They make the process simple and they always have some sort of deal or offer. The customer service is great. I needed hem a few times and they always respond quickly. In one situation they noticed that someone had hacked my username and password and they quickly stopped access and immediately notified me. The user interface is easy to use. I use Gmail for my email and they made it very easy to do this with their DNS Management.

What do you dislike?

The user interface is simple, but the also have the older version on there and it confuses me at times, but I guess that's so that users can ease into the new way of doing things. Their apps installer can use a bit of upgrading. Some of the software they use are several versions behind.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend getting your domain name from namecheap and just keep in the family and host here also. hey also make it very easy to use Google for Business.

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

I need place to host my website. I bounced around from several hosting packages and I am happy with this one for now. When I need a domain name they make it easy to search and purchase.

"Delightful Customer Service and Product Support"

What do you like best?

I think namecheap is one of the few domains providers who take what they do very spiritually. Why? Because we all know domains economy is not very profitable so most of providers try to scam you with all those unnecessary add-ons packages or even trick you in renewing for multiple unnecessary years. Also competitors like godaddy give you endless coupons that in the end are there to scam you. In contrast Namecheap is proud of just doing what they do best: providing a simple domain service. And of course they offer you multiple other options to add like hosting, SSL and emails services. But they do not UX trick you. Not they don't even bother to give you false advertising or coupons. I feel pretty comfortable having all my domains under namecheap.

What do you dislike?

I think they new UI/UX is actually not good. The old one looked quite old but was way easier to understand. This one looks like a toy really and it doesn't focus on the important stuff. It is really bad designed. Lots of drawings and characters that do not add.

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

I host most of my domains with them.

"Excellent host with phenomenal customer service"

What do you like best?

Namecheap's web hosting is top notch. Their value plan packs a ton of value for a tiny amount per month. The first year is $10 and after that, it's $40/year which is less than $4 per month. I used this for a year and was able to host a dynamic Wordpress.org blog reaching over 5,000 viewers per day. I eventually upgraded to their Business SSD plan and I am amazed at how fast the server is and how quickly issues are dealt with.

My website was moved from another host and online (DNS propagation and all) within 24 hours. You can't beat that! They have live chat customer support that is available all day, every day. Their customer support has great security so you know that no one else will be able to mess with your website.

What do you dislike?

I ran into a problem with the Business SSD server I was on at first. My website kept crashing and I felt like I was getting ripped off for the $20/month I was paying. That issue was very short-lived because their customer service moved me to a more stable server and it's been smooth sailing since then.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I absolutely recommend Namecheap! It's a great deal and will take you very far if you're just starting out.

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

Namecheap is my web host. I use it to serve my Wordpress.org blog. It allows me to reach 5,000+ readers per day. I have grown my reader base with a stable, reliable, and fast web host at Name Cheap.

"Outstanding domain registrar. The best out there!"

What do you like best?

- Very competitive pricing for domains, with coupons giving price reductions available often as well.

- Domains come with free WHOIS guard, great for protecting your privacy and address online for individuals registering domains.

- Simple and clear domain-management panel with free DNS and email-forwarding provided for all domains. No hidden charges or subscriptions enabled in the background.

- Great support team with multiple ways of contacting them 24/7, including Live Chat and Support Tickets.

- Ethical company that work with charities protecting rights of internet citizens, including the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF).

- Provide other web services like web/email hosting, servers and SSL certificate registration,

- Multiple methods of payment accepted, including card payments, PayPal and even Bitcoin.

- Recently added 2 factor authentication for additional security of your account.

- Android/iOS applications for managing and purchasing services on the move.

What do you dislike?

Nothing! This company has never let me down so far.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're looking for somewhere to register your domains, I HIGHLY recommend checking out Namecheap instead of their larger competitors like GoDaddy and 1&1. I haven't found a company that matches them.

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

Allows me to register domains & SSL certificates for myself and for my clients.

"Budget domain name registration"

What do you like best?

The price. Seriously, cheap being in their name isn't a joke. I shopped around for domains for a few development projects and their introductory offer and continued pricing could not be beaten. The processing time for domain updates is quick compared to previous companies I have gone through. They automatically enforce two factor authentication. They offer a very affordable whois blocking solution.

What do you dislike?

Their dashboard for domain management could use a little more polish or navigation hints. I feel like every time I visit I have to look up how to set up a new record again for my domain whereas that should be one of the key features I'm pointed to.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're looking for budget domain registration, namecheap has you covered. Look around for introductory/promo codes when you sign up, though.

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

Cheap hosting for trivial domain entities. Whois lookup protection.

"Straightforward and easy domain and hosting services"

What do you like best?

Affordable prices, unobtrusive interface and easy to use platform

What do you dislike?

I'd like to see a pro dashboard for managing clients and getting access to their accounts, like GoDaddy does

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't get fooled by customer acquisition offers by the likes of GoDaddy, look at the small print for final price after the first year, it will save you money in the long run.

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

Straightforward domain registrar, it covers my domain name needs without bothering me about unnecessary promotions

"Still buggy, but great customer support"

What do you like best?

Customer support is outstanding. Even when the web UI failed on us, they were very honest and told me it was a bug and offered a prompt solution. We also had to deal with EV SSL verification through the CA and they were very helpful in setting up communication between us and helping solving a issue with a CSR wrongly generated.

What do you dislike?

Even with such a good customer support, I think the web UI needs some improvements. When buying EV SSL certificates for example, since they require validation through the CA that issues them, for the whole period in between buying and having the certificate you cannot see your order in your account area. Also some tools around certificate generation would be useful.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Since not all TLDs are supported, in case you want to manage domain registration, make sure what you'll be able to manage through namecheap, what you'll have to manage through a different service and if that's what you want.

"Bait and Switch - Be Careful Before Committing"

What do you like best?

They seem to do pretty well hitting their 100% uptime SLA.

What do you dislike?

Its a full bait and switch with your plans after year 1. They are worse than the cable companies. Prices go up 4x after the first year for hosting and 2x for domain registration - all for no additional value. With no additional value, it is simply a money grab.

The kicker is the inconvenience to switch, which is why I would recommend not even using them in the first place.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Look at alternatives and dont commit because the year 1 prices. They switch them on you quick after
