Namecheap Shared Hosting Review
Namecheap launched in the year 2000 by a man named Richard Kirkendall (it celebrated its 15th birthday last year), with their shared hosting service following seven years later in 2007.
When a hosting company calls itself Namecheap you can be sure it’ll lead on price, and the headline on the website doesn’t disappoint: “Secure and reliable high-performance hosting from just $10 per year.”
Namecheap’s plans don’t include SSL – and 1&1 even gives you that with its most basic account. But this doesn’t have to be an expensive extra. Basic PositiveSSL certificates are available for $2 in the first year if you buy one with your hosting, or you can add one later from $8.75 a year.
Whatever you purchase is protected by a 99.9% connectivity guarantee, although that doesn’t cover scheduled maintenance or server issues, and there’s a brief 14-day Money-back guarantee if you have problems.
