Report for 2018

  • 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.
