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 $1 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.
