Company Overview, Pricing, and Features
NameCheap was started in 2000 with the idea of giving people great service and value-priced domain names. They currently have over 3 million domains registered under them and are a leading ICANN registrar.
NameCheap is a one-stop shop for those looking for a new domain name. They offer domain registration, email hosting, and a full line of website hosting. They even have an aftermarket domain service. It consists of an auction-style portion of the site where you can purchase existing domain names.
Like the others, they offer all the Generic TLDs and many of the country-code TLDs. With their large list of descriptive TLDs the total we observed came to right around 300.
NameCheap offers pre-orders for TLDs that are in the pre-release phase.
Although they do not have free privacy, they offer the WhoisGuard service for a meager $2.88 per year per domain.
NameCheap definitely wins in the pricing game. Out of the five domains we tested they were the cheapest on 3 of them and only twenty cents away from being the cheapest on the fourth.
