(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Namecheap, a leading ICANN-accredited domain registrar and web host, is proud to announce their participation in Fight for the Future’s first-ever “Reset the Net” day on June 5, 2014.
Namecheap is a company that believes deeply in every user’s right to privacy on the internet. For this reason, the company has chosen to partner with Fight for the Future on June 5th, in support of Reset the Net, a day of action designed to end government surveillance online. Namecheap is making it affordable for their customers to protect their site traffic by offering discounted prices on SSL certificates. To take advantage of the pricing, use coupon code POSITIVERESET to receive a one-year Comodo PositiveSSL certificate for $1.99 and/or coupon code RAPIDRESET to receive a GeoTrust RapidSSL certificate for $4.99. Restrictions apply. For every SSL certificate sold, Namecheap will donate $0.50 to Fight for the Future. When the number of SSLs sold exceeds 5000, Namecheap will double the amount donated.
“Namecheap has a long history of supporting privacy and freedom of expression online. We’ve always worked hard to preserve and protect our customers’ rights. So we’re thrilled to participate in resetting the net in this positive way,” said Namecheap CEO Richard Kirkendall.
