Namecheap was started by Richard Kirkendall in 2000, and he was the first person to do it.
Three million people are said to have been customers of the company for the last 18 years.

When You Use Namecheap Hosting, there are some things that are good about it.
Namecheap gives you a free domain name, speed, uptime, migrations, extra plan features like backups, and more when you sign up for a plan.
Here are all the facts:
1. You get a free domain and can move it to another place.
Namecheap is great at making domain names. So it makes sense that they’ll give you one if you sign up for their hosting plan. During the first year, it’s free. There is a fee to keep the domain name. After that, you would have to pay that fee again. People who buy domain names with the word “com” will pay $7.98/year for their first year of service.
For free, they’ll help you move your website from another service if it’s already set up somewhere else. A full cPanel migration will be done by Namecheap in less than 24 hours and there will be no more than 15 minutes of downtime. This is what they say they will do for you. If they don’t do a good job moving your site or you don’t like how it went, they’ll give you back the value of your first shared hosting purchase.
2. Good Uptime – 99.95%
Uptime is one of the most important things to look for in a host, and we always check it.
The good news is that Namecheap had a 99.95% uptime rate over the last year. As a group, they had three bad years in which they didn’t have a lot of uptime.
Average uptime for the last 12 months: December 2021: 100%
* November 2021: 99.96% * October 2021: 99.94% * September 2021: 99.91% * August 2021: 99.95% * July 2021: 99.94% * June 2021: 100%
* May 2021: 99.98% * April 2021: 99.96% * March 2021: 99.99% * February 2021: 99.89% * January 2021: 99.98%
3. It took 403 ms to load.
After the uptime, speed is the second most important thing to look for in a company. Because speed has been linked to customer happiness, it’s very important.
Google recently found that if your pages take more than six seconds to load, the chances of someone leaving go up over 100%.
So, yes, you need to keep your site alive.
As bad as it is if that site is slow. People will leave your site in droves if your site is down.
Our team is very pleased with the 403 ms that Namecheap has been able to achieve over the last 12 months.
4.there is a 30-day money-back promise.
Namecheap does have a 30-day money-back guarantee, but it’s not very strong. For a whole month, you can see if their service is right for you. Other than that, you can still go back and try something else. It’s not too late.
5. The Value Plan that comes with everything.
We’ve looked at a lot of hosts so far.
For each one, we usually sign up for the most basic plan so that we can set up a test site for each one.
The reason for this is two-fold:
1. We want to be able to write these reviews based on real data and performance stats.
At the very least, most of the plans at each web host are very similar to each other.
There are many ways to say this: This lets us compare apples to apples (for the most part). Each shared offer has a lot of the same features, and they all look about the same.
We didn’t expect Namecheap to surprise us.
First, they didn’t limit the amount of bandwidth on their cheapest plan. They also let you use things like cPanel and apps like WordPress.
Their cheapest plan also comes with a free SSL certificate for the first year, which is a good deal.
As a bonus, you get twice-a-week back ups in case something goes wrong when you’re updating your new site.
For the best price, you get 50 databases in MySQL (which is way more than what most companies offer on a similar tier).
On top of that, this plan comes with three websites you can set up. Most basic hosting plans only allow you to host one website at a time. If you have a business and a personal site, this is a great deal.
It doesn’t stop there, though. They give you up to 30 email addresses right off the bat.
6. Third-party reviews are great.
Every time we write a review, we like to check in with current customers to make sure it’s not just based on our own experience alone.
There were some customer reviews on the Internet that made us happy.
They, for example, have a good 4.7-star rating on ShopperReviewed. It’s said that’s based on more than one million reviews.
Because Namecheap Hosting is so cheap, there are some drawbacks.
The three main things we look at when we think about a new web host are:
1.Is this host going to keep my site up the majority of the time?
2. Speed: Is this host good at making visitors want to come back?
3. Can this host help me when things get out of hand?
In one of the three areas, Namecheap didn’t do very well, so they didn’t do very well.
See for yourself.
1. Inconsistent Customer Service
Namecheap has a pretty good knowledge base platform for people who want to learn more. It has detailed answers that should help you solve most of the problems you have.
We also like to try out live chats to get a sense of how they work.
Things got off to a good start, with a quick call from a friendly support rep, and our question about getting a free domain name was answered quickly.
However, when we asked about site migrations, instead of a simple “yes” or “no,” we were told to send a ticket to a concierge department.
Often, when Namecheap customer service wants to help, they send us to the concierge team. Instead of a quick live chat, we’re forced to write a ticket.
2. There aren’t a lot of places to store data
Namecheap has data centers in the United States and in the United Kingdom.
There are two data centers in the United Kingdom. One is in Nottingham and the other is in Phoenix.
That isn’t much. Because some hosts have more than 20 data centers all over the world.
Another thing: You’d also have to pay $1.00 more per month if you chose the UK data center.
Namecheap’s prices, hosting plans, and a few quick facts.
Here’s a quick look at the hosting plans that Namecheap has to offer:
For two years, Namecheap will charge these prices. You would pay $1.88 a month if you chose the annual plan. If you chose the monthly option, it would cost you $3.88 per month.
A few quick facts
* Is the first year free?
There was a simple way to sign up.
* Money-Back: You have 30 days to return the item.
* Credit cards, PayPal, Dwolla, and Bitcoin are some of the ways you can pay.
* Hidden costs and rules: There are two important things to remember:
If you buy hosting for the first time, you can get this deal for free. In the package specs, you can see how much it will cost for the first 12 months if you pay annually. After that, the hosting service will renew at its normal rate as shown in the package. Upgrades and downgrades will be done at the full renewal price.
In our Ultimate package, you get “unmetered disk space” This disk space is only for your website and not for any other storage needs. This space must be used in accordance with our Acceptable Use Policy, especially paragraph 10.2,” says
If there are any upsells, there will be a few of them along the way.
A quick account set-up is what this means.
* cPanel is the control panel and dashboard experience.
* One-click installation: This tool makes it easy to install popular apps and CMSs (like WordPress, Joomla, and so on) quickly.
Do we think Namecheap is good?
Is that true?
They had a good start. Existing customers seem to like them, and the fact that their cheapest plan is better than most other companies’ top-tier plans looks good.
We also like Namecheap’s good uptime and speed results, which make them a good host.
If only customer service were better and there were more data centers to choose from. This is what we’d like to see happen.
Overall, Namecheap is a good host, but there are better options out there.
