Namecheap is an American based domain and hosting company. The company is based out of Los Angeles and provides domain registration (ICANN accredited), SSL certificates, VPN’s, and web hosting. The company was started in 2000 by Richard Kirkendall. Namecheap started gaining some serious traction in the late 2000’s. Namecheap was then voted the best domain registration platform during November 2010 by Lifehacker polls. In 2011 Namecheap took a strong anti-SOPA position after GoDaddy took a pro-SOPA position. Namecheap went viral when they announced a “Move Your Domain Day” with a “SOPASucks” promo code on December 29th, 2011 when users on Reddit called for a boycott of Godaddy because of its pro-SOPA stance. Namecheap also said it would donate a dollar ($1 USD) to the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) for each domain transferred during Move Your Domain Day. In a Lifehacker poll in 2012, Namecheap was voted the most popular domain registrar. Namecheap publicy stated that it would accept bitcoin in early 2013 making its company well known to bitcoin and cryptocurrency users. Namecheap still remains a privately owned and independent company. They have reported managing over 11 million domains as of 2018, which makes them one of the biggest domain registrars in the world.
