How to set up VPN on Asus RT-AC68u? Any walkthroughs or links much appreciated? Do i need to install Merlin or updated firmware? Thanks


Agreed - I've been using Namecheap for approximately 10 years and found their service second to none. With the launch of a VPN service, I'd expect top notch quality. I guess people not in the 'web hosting' market won't have heard of the company, and - a typical HUKD response - instantly assume it's an unknown / poor / dodgy deal, when in fact they're a large player in the market with a solid rating and brand image.

Free WhoisGuard from Namecheap FOREVER

Free WhoisGuard from Namecheap FOREVER
Got an Instagram story from Namecheap saying they're offering WhoisGuard for all their domains forever.

YES GDPR! All Registrars will probably roll the cost of Privacy into the domain cost eventually. Voted HOT because Namecheap is an excellent Domain Registrar. I have been with them for many years.


cheers OP, i normally payed for .... GDPR has been right pain sorting out our website past few weeks


Got the same at Gandi already, due to GDPR.


This would likely be down to the fact that European law basically killed Whois. Charging your customers money to not reveal their personal details to the internet at large was a pretty bad privacy policy in retrospect.


GDPR has pretty much provided this now as name and address data is no longer published

I think so but one domain for £1.48 is not that bad.


Used Namecheap yesterday for a Comodo SSL - seemed to be the cheapest for a 3 domain cert


its a good and cheap way to encrypt your website but your hosting provider should support it (pirate)


But this is still a basic cert, so why not just save all your money and the hassle, and go with Letsencrypt?


Oh I'm so sorry. But you can contact namecheap customer service and ask this offer. Today I did the same. Actually I got 2 $0.88 coupons from black friday offer. But unfortunately it expired. They didn't give me $0.88 offer but this ;)

Thought I should probably follow this up after some recent changes at Innohosting - they have just been bought out by a private equity firm. They may stay a great host, but whilst I had a great relationship with their previous team I have zero experience with the new management, so couldn't comment either way on their quality any more. Personally, I have shifted some sites to, but HostWithLove is also getting a lot of support at the moment. I hope Innohosting keeps up its long record of quality, but buyouts don't tend to be a good sign with hosting companies.


Thanks mate


Namecheap are great for domains - good prices, decent live chat support, and they don;t try to upsell. I've used them for a decade and have been very happy. Hosting is a different issue as it depends on your needs. What sort of site are you looking to host and what level of traffic do you want to plan for? For general (shared) hosting I use Innohosting and have been very happy with their service for many years - it's rock solid, well priced, UK or US servers, and their techs really know what they're doing. I host all kinds of sites there, from smallish Wordpress sites to forums to static sites. If you just want to host a Wordpress site, then Siteground are probably the budget option as they have built some infrastructure dedicated to Wordpress, which speeds up page delivery. If you are hosting a big Wordpress site then take a look at Pagely - they're fantastic.


Hello, Can anyone recommend a reputable provider please for domain and hosting. thank you


Although I've heard of this technique I wouldn't at all say its solely related to Namecheap. I've actually been pondering buying a domain recently, through Namecheap, typed it in and exited out - in fact a few times. The domain is still available to buy.

be careful guys. They take your money even when the coupon code exceeded usage and refuse to honour it eventhough you have paid. need to contact them to get money back.

My two and . UK domains are up for renewal with godaddy... Anyone suggest a decent and reasonably cheap company to transfer to as I just have them registered but don't use them etc...


That's not Namecheap's fault. I've worked with domain name companies for several years and all registrars would do the same thing. The previous owner always has priority. Also, you get notified SEVERAL times before a domain name expires. And after expiring, you STILL have priority to renew it up to 30 days before it becomes out of your grasp. I just had to comment as Namecheap have always been good to me and are one of the few companies that don't upsell the world to you when you buy something.


Nothing wrong with Namecheap as a company but they're trying to flog a dead horse with these extensions


most of my domains are with Godaddy and Namecheap

I've never come across any fees for transferring a domain out, some TLDs carry a transfer in fee in the form of extending for another year

matt20 - I did write a response earlier - had a message it was being moderated - mentioned only problems I've had, and years ago, were with RegisterFly, but none with Namecheap, etc, and unaware of any reported problems / complaints about the latter...


matt20 - understood not all about price, though HUKD in general does have a history of posters challenging or marking cold if somewhere else is supplying the same product or service for less (hence my assumption that would be why people were less than impressed and marked this cold). I have many dozen domains (of my own and those of clients) and have had hardly any problems over the umpteen years. If you've seen negative comments about I'd be happy to consider (and will hunt for any such comments anyway, just in case)... I can only remember one major problem (with some years ago) and ICANN sorted it fairly quickly once someone blew the whistle....


Thanks masliya - yes, they're a reasonable registration firm - I first started using their free DNS service (no domains were even with them). mcormack - it's partly pricing (the older domain names have been in the $5-$15 price bracket for maybe 10 years. They're with a small number of registrars and the systems involved have been honed to high reliability. The very newest TLDs are from a (large) number of businesses, some of them new startups, funded by VCs, and pricing is (a) generally higher (up to $750 for some) and (b) far from stable and "bedded in" for them to have a big customer base and be willing to give large discounts (perhaps offering no discounts at all).


Why aren't the new Tld's (Top Level Domains) included?? e.g. .london, .law, .beer.....etc

Namecheap aren't bad and they can do the little-known "file on server" method (like how Google Webmaster Tools auths a site) for secure cert authorisation of PositiveSSL certs via the live chat. It's handy if you don't have access to the domain's mail server to set up an alias/account to receive the auth e-mail for the cert. I normally use Servertastic myself because they're UK based, but Namecheap are a reasonable alternative.

Just went for this £5.01 for me, voted hot


Very easy to move between cPanel accounts across the web. Most providers (Namecheap included) will happily manage the transfer for you, so you just need to change your Nameservers... ... or if you want a very fast changeover, reduce your A record's TTL in the DNS Zone File then change the IP; then change the nameserver.


Just talked to their support. In the 2nd year you'll have to pay the normal price of $4.90/month (~$59.76 a year) for the UK datacentre value hosting. You can only pay one year upfront, not monthly payments, just a warning!

I heard dfs has some kind of sale on too!!!


Yeh, true. Though it does state "Regularly engages in lawful activities (sales of good or services or other business, commercial or non-commercial, including not-for-profit relations in the United States" so I can't see that being a problem for most people. Personally I just use them for vanity hosts on IRC. Source


Technically you need a presence in the USA to have a .us domain, but I don't think they bother checking. Might be a problem if someone wants a domain you own though. Technically they could complain and have the domain taken off you.

For babydollo - you can have hosting and registration with completely different firms, so you could use the transfer pricing from A to B to (A or C) and so on… then if the exchange rate changes (I look for .com domains with US$ pricing mostly, and only now and then check UK prices as they are generally similar/ higher, depending on whether VAT gets charged {eg by GoDaddy}) then when you get (say) $2 to the pound, that's when I'd extend to 10 years.@dancedar - think the 1.95 deal seems to be a 'new domain' with some other product. I just grabbed the transfer prices :-


Looks great, however, isn't there a godaddy .com transfer for £1.95? I know people don't like gd but they are cheaper, correct?


Im New to website building and intend to create a site which involves carts and subscriptions. Also is it better to buy domain name on this site or from another and transfer....or to buy for 10years now to avoid costly renewals...?


Deal especiallyas godaady have ramped up their renewal prices.


I have been using Namecheap for a while (in 2011 I started using their free DNS facility but only more recently have I used them for registration of domains). I still have domains with GoDaddy,, and others, and tend to transfer domains for lower charges than paying the full 'renewal' prices. Remember that for some transfers you need to have an authentication code, in advance (obtained via your current registration firm and possibly sent to the admin contact by e-mail) so that an attempt to 'grab' a domain from your current registration firm will fail because it needs this code to even be considered as a valid request. There's a Namecheap page explaining how to reduce downtime if you are moving hosting (seen on a previous thread on HUKD)… See this link
