NameCheap.com is a domain name and web hosting provider with a great domain name search tool and shared, VPS, dedicated and reseller hosting accounts.

Domain names are easy to manage via NameCheap and the interface is better than GoDaddy – which can get confusing with how many time it seems to change.

 

THE GOOD / 

THE BAD / 

  • Best domain name search
  • Unlimited hosting bandwidth
  • Prompt support
  • Nice backend
 

  • Substantial fees after intro period 

 

THE BOTTOMLINE /

Great Domain Name search with lots of TDLs and moderate priced hosting.


 

Hosting is standard with cPanel interface and all that comes with it.

Shared hosting starts at $9.98/yr for first year and $38.88/yr after that.

Reseller accounts can be had for as little as $14.04/mo (3 year commitment).

Support is via chat, Knowledgebase and ticket system plus server uptime statuses.

 

I usually use GoDaddy for searching and purchasing names, but I’m starting to use NameCheap more and more.

I like their business practices and position of Internet openness.
