Namecheap is the best. Best price. Best service. Best UI. Best documentation. Best customer services. What impresses me the most about Namecheap is that they are there to do one thing really well. And they do it excellently. Unless something drastically changes, I will be a Namecheap customer for life. I can’t think of anything that any other company could offer me that would convince me to change. Other domain registrars are horrible to use, and it feels like you’re going to be taken advantage of the entire time.

Namecheap is like the “Take 5 Oil Change” or “Five Guys Burgers and Fries” of domain registrars. They do one thing INCREDIBLY well. They are fast, affordable, friendly, easy to use, and they legitimately make the experience fun.

Namecheap is cheaper, easier to manage and avoids shady marketing gimmicks that other domain registrars rely on. And while I can't attest to the security practices of Namecheap, I've heard from reliable sources that NameCheap has much better security measures compared to other domain registrars, which could protect you from future hacking possibly.

Namecheap wins hands down on cost and ease of use. I have experienced zero compromise with using Namecheap. There was no trade-off to enjoy the cost savings. Namecheap does everything the other registrars do and more in some cases.

I switched from Name.com. While Name also makes it easy to checkout, their domain prices and renewal prices are much more expensive, in the long run. The cost to renew a domain at name.com made me want to transfer to NameCheap. I have since transferred all domains from Name to Namecheap and have not regretted my decision. Other companies offer intro pricing but then charge you badly when it's time to renew.

GoDaddy is probably the most similar service I've used in terms of offering domain registration and website hosting. I've found I prefer Namecheap's domain search, pricing, sales, and management over GoDaddy's.

While Namecheap has great pricing on hosting, they're not my top pick for hosting client websites. In that regard, I would choose Flywheel or MDD Hosting, depending on the client's particular needs.

Namecheap is leagues above Network Solutions in terms of UI experience and online support. Network Solutions lack of cPanel and access to databases really limits the ability to customize and take control of the website you need to make for your business. Network Solutions has a very clunky and outdated model (both in technology used and pricing).

Prior to using Namecheap, I had primarily used GoDaddy or Network Solutions. However, both companies sites and service left a lot to be desired. Outside of winning on price, in some cases, Namecheap's offering is far better in every aspect than what GoDaddy has to offer. And in the case of Network Solutions, it was far more expensive and things like DNS updates would always take multiple attempts and not show up for long periods of time.

Aftering making the change to Namecheap it was very apparent how much better their service is and it didn't take too long to migrate all of our domains over to them.

Namecheap is leaps and bounds better than GoDaddy in both ease of use and in lack of upsetting of needless products. GoDaddy is disingenuous with their pricing and services. They try to up sell product add ons that are not necessary for the end user. Many of my clients have switched from GoDaddy to Namecheap and they all have commented on how great Namecheap is.

Namecheap is great in that they don't try to up-sell you like so many companies. My limited experience with Bluehost was notorious for them trying to pile on add-ons and features that, even after I cancelled my accounts with them, auto-renewed years later. Namecheap is incredibly straightforward with their purchasing, emphasizing in particular on domain names. The only up-sell they even attempt to make is for their domain name privacy service, which is inexpensive and, I imagine, a popular feature for privacy-oriented people or people who create personal websites and don't need their home address listed with their domain.
