  1. Go ahead. Bow. Pat yourselves on the back.
    You guys and gals are doing a great job!

    I would wholeheartedly support this (arguement? – no need to argue it, really).
    Just keep up the good work and we’ll keep on coming.
    The only thing that I could think of suggesting, is with regards to Whoisguard.
    I would love to bulk buy Whoisguard at one moment in time, for some of my domains, but let the yearly duration start upon the next renewal date, or if the domain has been more recently renewed, start the year’s duration at a time in the past (when it was last renewed).
    I hate having to manage Whoisguard’s that expire at odd times in comparison to the dates that run with the domain names.
    Commercially, I think something can be done here to benefit, both Namecheap and it’s customers.

    Thanks guys.

  3. Mike says:

    You guys definitely deserve it.

  4. Vapman says:

    I have over 600 domains with Namecheap and they really are the best. No annoying upsells or shady pricing schemes. Just the goods, fast and cheap. I refer all my friends. Their hosting is fantastic too.

  5. Alex says:

    No surprise here, most marketers trust Namecheap over other registrars. Time is money and who has time to through a gauntlet of upsells every time they need to register a domain?

    Keep up the good work….

  6. Marc says:

    Don’t forget the amazing contest ideas which gave users free domains from NameCheap. They’re truly the best domain registrar of 2011. I’ve moved all of my domains from other domain registrars to Namecheap.

    Customer support at NameCheap is great and I tell everyone that I know that. Keep it up!

  7. Deepak says:

    Goes without saying that NC is the best domain registrar. I am moving all my domains to NC as they get expired with other registrars.

  8. My domain register changes and searching for better and better stopped 4 years ago, when I found Great prices, with the best service on the net.

  9. Trajche says:

    Prices are great. Service is great. Namecheap is the greatest!

  10. You guys have definitely earned it. I know I can trust searching for domains here and not have to worry about them being mysteriously bought.

  11. Angus says:

    Good for you! So glad I switched from GD!

  12. Najam says:

    If I were given option to choose / vote best registrar, I would have definitely voted you.

    Good luck

  13. scottc says:

    Yes! You guys are the best. Easy to use, the best customer service, and, as the name suggests, inexpensive. I guess you can do all that when you don’t have to focus on paying for Superbowl ads and race car drivers.

  14. AWarez says:

    I have more of 15 domains .com & .net, ¬°Excellent services!

  15. You have always done excellently well by me. You deserve the award! #ThatIsAll

  16. Fully Agree. I came to you guys after the RegisterFly debacle and have been happy ever since. (You even went the extra mile during the transition.) I can honestly say that I haven’t had a single complaint and that’s with an average of 50 domains, several certificates, etc. Thanks and keep up the great work.

  17. Namecheap is reliable-I like Namecheap!

  18. Nash says:

    A wonderful domain service. You guys rock.

  19. aput says:

    this registar good

  20. audrey says:

    Namecheap, you are awesome!

  21. Let’s talk about its domain name only, the price is expensive then others. However, if comes to the offer and addional features included, it is the cheapest one and perfect online live supports. Overall, I like its service very much!!!

  22. That’s quite good news to hear that Namecheap has topped the list of domain registrars, It really deserved this. I have no second thoughts when i am buying domain from and have bought more than 10 domains for myself and my happy clients.

  23. Navubi says:

    Namecheap is the best!

  24. nadlerz says:

    Namecheap is great pair with paypal :)

  26. Bangladesh says:

    I like the namecheap specially for the support team not for the 1$ domain, they are really friendly for the customers. I will keep the Namecheap on Top position.

  27. Namecheap get my vote too – greatest domain registrar evar.

  28. ezaa says:

  29. Tyrx says:

    I still wonder how you guys can continue to exist considering the awesome support staff with all the frequent deals.

    To the future. :D

  30. menj says:

    Goes without saying that Namecheap is the best! Better than the rest!

  31. josh says:

    while i agree that you’re the best registrar, i wouldnt say you have “fantastic prices”. Many other registrars have much cheaper and better deals. But i still stick around because i love you guys.

  32. Tylar Vowles says:

    We use them for all our domains, and refer our customers to use them directly. You just can’t beat good service for cheap!

  33. I have 33 domains registered with NC. Simply the fastest, cheapest and easiest way to go.

  34. Ronnie says:

    I bought my first domain with Namecheap, I was a little confused with the interface at first but didnt take time to settle in and the Customer Service I experienced this afternoon was brilliant. If it is how I hope it is, I’m gonna move all my domains from GD to here.

  35. Rakhine says:

    i want to domain member.

  36. harry says:

    Namecheap rocks! All my domains are with them!

  39. jackets says:

    Namecheap is best because they have world class support team. They believe in customer. Go on

  40. Andry says:

    The cheapest for domain in the planet, superb.

  41. Abhishek Jha says:

    agree on the “24×7 livechat support” point, which is very necessary for web hosting reseller like me.. since if i dont get support, how will i support my clients in case there is any issue with the server? this is the only one reason why namecheap was the first choice when i was choosing reseller hosting providers. all other 100’s of resellers might have cheap pricing..but their phone support and ticket system is time taking and troublesome.. plus they don’t provide 24x7livechat support like namecheap. thats why namecheap is best for reseller hosting providers.

  42. Shyuan says:

    I also agree, Support is the most important part of your company. No matter how cheap the domain prices, if a company like gotonames does not have a good customer support team, ended up they lose customers, and I am one of them. I am pissed off by the support team. Why didnt I found out Namecheap much earlier? :)

  43. Snoopy says:

    Good jobs!

  44. Adill says:

    congrats… For me… you were always the best registrar
