Namecheap = Free SSL Cert & Free Whoisguard

Well I have finally decided to switch to namecheap from now on.  I have purchased hundreds if not thousands of domains from godaddy since they first sprouted up and regardless of using the notorious coupon codes to get discounts, it still doesn’t compare to namecheap.

The first reason I decided to switch is because I am sick of being charged an additional 10 bucks everytime I want whoisguard protection.

Second reason? Because I like using SSL with my sites and these guys give you a FREE ssl cert with EVERY purchase.

Not the longest post ever but figured if you don’t know about this it would be a nice thing to know!

One thing to note is that if you browse directly to and buy a domain I don’t think you get the free SSL cert.  If you go through this link you get the free whoisguard AND the free SSL cert.

  1. Pretty good deal! I’ve been using NameCheap after I switched from Hostgator – their domain management is really horrible. But Namecheap is the shit 🙂 I like them a lot.

  2. Nice I’m going to think about transferring my domain names to name cheap hate paying the $10 a year. Great info I will recommend name cheap over any other domain registrar any day!

  3. Trev, not used NameCheap I use DirectI Reseller account I can automate my domain registations straight through with their API and privacy protect is included. Free SSL is great though will check it out – directi does not have that.
