📄 Editorial Review

Ever since it was founded in 2000, Namecheap has continued to develop their system of services. Because of their dedication, they became an ICANN-accredited domain registrar (figuring with around 10 million domains that have been made ever since they started operating on the market). It is considered a top company due to the provided services, great support and security assurance.

Namecheap knows what is popular among customers and therefore, it offers highly-required services: shared web hosting full packages, SSL certificates, WhoisGuard privacy protection and they come with plan options for WordPress hosting, VPS hosting, Dedicated Servers, Shared hosting, Reseller hosting, private email hosting, Website Builder, or Domain Name Registration. Namecheap also provides customers with apps like Ecommerce marketplace or subscriptions which are useful tools in the management of your business. Their operating systems are protected through the latest firewalls.

Their hosting plans come with a massive number of managing tools that can help the customers get the right hosting experience. The prices they provide are highly competitive. Let's take, for instance, their shared web hosting services. These come with three available plans (Stellar, Stellar Plus, Stellar Business). The plans come highly equipped with various features and tools to help you manage your business and such a list of facilities always increases the number of customers. A few of the available features are the following: backups (twice a week); unmetered bandwidth; unlimited parked domains; Webmail; SPF; SMTP, POP3, IMAP; PHPMyAdmin; Virus Scanner; Google Apps; Resource Usage; Google Analytics Compatible; Softaculous Script Installer, and so on. The prices for these shared hosting options start from $2.88/month. This is slightly higher than the prices offered by HostGator or GoDaddy, but are lower than the ones offered by BlueHost or GreenGeeks.

The Reseller hosting plans are available through three packages. Compared to HostGator or GreenGeeks, Namecheap comes with a cheaper offer. As mentioned before, their prices are very competitive on the market and affordable for customers. Features available through this service are: unmetered bandwidth, 14-day money-back guarantee, unlimited subdomains.

The Dedicated Servers own a motherboard that varies from Dell PowerEdge R230 with Intel C236 Chipset to Supermicro X11SSD-F. These servers can only be refunded within 7 days from the purchase of the plan.

There are also several disadvantages to this company. For instance, even if they offer one free SSL certificate, this only lasts for one year. After that, the customer has to pay. There are several complaints regarding their slow load page. This could decrease the number of potential customers to choose their options.

😠 Namecheap screwed us over royally. We decided to transfer our hosting from AWS to namecheap but before we did it we emailed them telling them do not: 1. crash the site 2. do not make it live till everything was working. The nightmare starts there.

Bear in mind we have an investor meeting with a major silicon valley VC firm in 2 days. We also have over 400 customers. I continue...

At 4am (almost 2 days after the "migration" started by them) they told us it was all done thanks for choosing namecheap. It wasn't done. Not even close. SSL wasn't there, URLs were all wrong, our dashboard wasn't appearing. So I started chatting with them. At 12pm nothing was fixed. Even after 3 chats and them telling me it was done.

At noon - they fixed our SSL. 1 hour later, it was gone again. All our internal URLs were broken and they told me "its ok, its just because the domain is still catching up, it will only take 2 more hours." At 5pm nothing was better and I was getting tired after all I had been on the chat now since 4 am - 13 hours!

So my lead dev started helping me - well they blocked me out of my account - and mistreated me like a criminal in the process. Support hung up on me two times. Now, the USA is waking up, its 9pm my time in Singapore and I have officially been on the chat going on 17 hours.

They said they would respond to the support ticket in 2 hours but now its been over 3. We have customer complaints coming in, requests for refunds, we had to reschedule our investor meeting and they have wasted my resources. They have cost us thousands and possible pre-series A.

They literally have held us hostage and possibly damaged us beyond repair and at a pivotal moment for the company.

NEVER USE NAMECHEAP. Your entire business, employees and customers will suffer and they wont care one bit.

They will say the same thing over and over "were sorry, it must be frustrating"
