Overall Satisfaction with Namecheap

Namecheap is our domain registrar of choice. We switched from several different domain registrars over to just Namecheap. We have dealt with many previous registrars that have complex and confusing UIs on their control panels and that charge exorbitant fees for simple things. Namecheap doesn’t do any of that. Namecheap provides excellent customer service and an incredibly simple-to-use service.
  • Domain registrar
  • Customer service
  • DNS setup and propagation
  • Transferring domain registrations
  • Email forwarding
  • There is one search bar that is a little confusing. It’s not clear if it’s supposed to be for finding a new domain or searching for your existing domain registrations.
  • Emails about the DKIM and SPF records were confusing the first time I got them. The FAQs could be improved.
  • I’m digging deep for this, but I think it would be nice if the UI brought the user to the list of domains currently owned since that is the page I’m usually looking for when I log in.
  • Fair, affordable pricing
  • Clean, understandable UI
  • No unrelated offers and spam
  • No unexpected surprises and hidden fees
  • Easy to use interface
  • Excellent FAQs and documentation
  • Namecheap has saved us hundreds of dollars a year on services that we were required to pay extra for by NetworkSolutions that Namecheap provides for free.
  • Namecheap has made managing our domains simpler, saving us dozens of labor hours a year.
  • Namecheap has encouraged us to experiment with new domain names to see which ones work best. We couldn’t do this with our previous registrars because it was too hard to change from one domain to another.
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 the absolute best domain registrar that I have used, and I have used just about all of the big names. They are priced right; they offer excellent customer service, their FAQs and documentation are excellent. They don’t spam you with offers for things you don’t want, and they don’t have misleading practices like hiding that the first-year fee is 1/10 of the regular annual cost. They don’t try to sneak in a change to your bill and charge you for multiple years when you’ve already set it to a one-year renewal.

The only negative of Namecheap is its brand name. I have had a few raised eyebrows when I have told executives that we are using Namecheap. It doesn’t sound like a professional service. It sounds like a consumer service. This is terrible because they are the MOST professional service and reliable service of all the services I work with on a daily basis.
