Namecheap Erfahrungen und Testberichte – Starte deine kostenfreie Domain
In the year 2000, a man named Richard Kirkendall founded a company called Namecheap, with the idea that the average people of the internet deserved value-priced domains and stellar service. These days, Namecheap is a leading ICANN-accredited domain name registrar and web hosting company. We’re happy to report: Namecheap has about 3 million customers and more than 7 million domains under management.
We offer domain names at some of the best prices in the industry, along with full-featured hosting packages, secure SSL certificates, WhoisGuard privacy protection service, and more.
People Are The Reason
The internet lives on computers and servers, but there’s no net without people. People like you, people like us. In the current world market, having an online presence isn’t just a privilege – it’s a necessity. Some of us even think it’s a basic right. That’s why Namecheap provides affordable access to domains and the products and services to help you make the most of them. Because the internet isn’t just for people who can write program code or maintain server hardware. The internet is for anyone who has a great idea for how to use the internet. No idea is too big or too small.
The Namecheap Mission
We work hard to provide unparalleled levels of service, security and support. And strive to offer intuitive products at the most competitive prices in the business. We never bombard our clients with unwanted upsells or in-your-face advertising. Our goal is to be honest, straightforward, friendly and helpful. And that’s all.
Namecheap sits right at the doorstep of the web, so we know how important a domain name can be for your business. Our support staffers are some of the smartest, nicest people in the industry. In fact, every member of the Namecheap staff is skilled, well-trained and ready to help. We want you – our customers – to feel like rockstars and royalty, because that’s what you are, as far as we’re concerned. Making customers happy is our top priority. Thank you for being part of our journey.
Namecheap is an organization that believes deeply in privacy, security, freedom and equal treatment for all internet users. In the past, we’ve asked our customers to help us fight the passage of both SOPA and PIPA, legislation that would’ve greatly compromised net users‘ privacy. We worked together, and we succeeded.
More recently, we at Namecheap are asking clients to join us in support of net neutrality. It’s not just a catch phrase. Equal treatment is impossible without true net neutrality. So we invite you to stand with us in this fight. Namecheap will continue to keep you updated about issues that impact you and to provide opportunities to donate to worthy causes. Let’s keep working together to keep our internet free and open.
What We’re Doing
In 2012, the Stop Online Piracy Act nearly passed. SOPA proposed that owners of intellectual property block or disable any website that they felt infringed on their intellectual property. Because of the threat to our customers, we hosted the first official MoveYourDomainDay on December 29, 2011 as a call-to-action for those who opposed SOPA and wanted to leave service providers who supported SOPA and other such ill-conceived legislation.

Our lawmakers continue to propose new laws restricting internet freedom, and that’s why we host MYDD (MoveYourDomainDay) every year. We donate funds raised from MYDD to the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), a donor-supported membership organization that works to protect fundamental rights regardless of technology and to educate the public about digital rights.

Our latest efforts: Our fifth annual MoveYourDomainDay on February 2, 2016 was a huge success, raising nearly $55,000 for the Electronic Frontier Foundation. On January 27, 2015, MoveYourDomainDay raised just over $50,000 for the EFF. In June of 2014, we joined Fight for the Future’s work to stop inappropriate spying and surveillance online. FftF works to help people feel empowered to demand technology policy that serves public interest. Visit fightforthefuture.org to learn more →
