Support and Other Features

NameCheap’s website is clearly organized with lots of useful information and means of communication, including live chat, Knowledge base, and a ticket system, but no phone support. Third party websites state the provider’s servers are located in North America and Europe.

The feedback NameCheap.com received is mostly positive, with only several negative reviews. It appears that at some point of being in business, you just cannot be liked by every single customer, and NameCheap is no different. The average rating of the hosting provider is around 7-8/10 or 4/5, which is a good result.

  • The average rating of NameCheap for 2018 with HRank is 4.5 (the 128th position on the top 2018 list), which is not very high.
  • One of the reasons for it being so was two cases of downtime (89.334% in August 2018 and 99.809% in November 2018). While the rest of the monitoring period was more or less within 99% range, these were serious cases for such a provider.
  • Its response time can neither be called stable, while it stayed in the range of 800ms – 900ms, there were slower times, and many.
  • However, the company increased the number of websites from June to December 2018, and it looks like its not perfect performance didn’t stop new users from joining.
