(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Popular domain name registrar Namecheap has announced Tuesday that it has reached 2 million domains under its management.
“Reaching 2 million domains is an incredible milestone for us,” Richard Kirkendall, CEO of Namecheap said. “We’re a service-oriented business that prides itself on providing the best deals with a support team that strives to make each and every customer happy. This goal reinforces our position in the marketplace as a customer-centric domain name powerhouse.”
Namecheap’s attention to the customer has given the company accolades in top tech blog Lifehacker’s Best Domain Name Registrar piece, which ran in late 2010. In late March and early April of 2011, the company ran a special transfer promotion that included a charity donation to Save the Elephants. The transfer promotion helped Namecheap get more than 20,000 new domains in its management. Further, the campaign’s success resulted in numerous press mentions in major news outlets, including CNN and the New York Post. The company also is known as being extremely active in social networks, with ongoing promotions on Twitter and Facebook as well as on other websites. This has resulted in a tremendous following on those social channels.
Namecheap continues to offer compelling solutions for the beginner to the advanced enthusiast. In May, the company announced reduced pricing on its country code top level domain names, with savings to customers of up to 59%.
Namecheap also boasts a popular affiliate program, giving customers the opportunity to refer Namecheap to their friends and make a percentage of commissions from each sale. This has helped grow the company further while also rewarding the customer.
To celebrate the 2 millionth domain, Namecheap awarded the user whose purchase consisted of the 2 millionth domain 10 times the total order amount.
“At Namecheap, the customer is our top priority. Our tremendous growth in the past 8 months alone should show everyone what we can do. We continue to build an unparalleled service offering” Kirkendall said.

With over 500,000 clients and millions of domain names under management, Namecheap is one of the top domain registrars in the world. Find out more by visiting us at http://www.namecheap.com.
