Namecheap Review – Domain Review

NameCheap Domain Review

Namecheap launched in the year 2000 by a man named Richard Kirkendall (it celebrated its 15th birthday last year. With Namecheap having its headquarters in Los Angeles, United States. Richard Kirkendall remains as its CEO, even after 15 years since its launch date.

Domain name providers are pretty notorious for having intro pricing…then raising the price for you to make money ongoing. So for me, the best way of judging apples to apples is to look at their 1-year renewal pricing for .com domain names.

When you register this and any domain with NameCheap, you’ll also get Dynamic DNS support, URL and email forwarding, and more at no extra cost. New registrants also get great deals on SSL security certificates and privacy protection products. And our expert customer service team is always available to answer your questions.

NameCheap Domain Features

  • You receive a special $1.99 Comodo PositiveSSL Certificate (valid for the first year only) with every new product purchase except domain renewals, WhoisGuard renewals, purchase of other SSL certificates or renewals or any other SSL certificates. Further restrictions may apply.
  • DNS features mentioned are applicable only if your domain uses their default nameserver


  • Very straightforward checkout process
  • Good suggestion engine
  • Knowledgebase is pretty well put together
  • Chat support is super-fast but lacks phone support
  • Bare bones design (for good and bad)


  • Has trouble with auto-renewal on occasion


Choose NameCheap if you want to buy a domain for more than one year along with domain privacy. Their renewal rates are impressive and customer support is excellent. Without any doubt, one of the most important aspects that come in mind before buying a domain or hosting service is the price factor and NameCheap scores high with this
