I’m proud to say that as of today, I have moved all of my domains form Go Daddy over to Namecheap. Why change, you might be asking? Well, first of all, there’s cost.
A .com on Go Dady will cost you $12.17 a year. Granted, Namecheap is normally $10.16 a year, but due to yesterday’s ‘Move Your Domain Day’ special, I was able to transfer each of my domains at a low, low price of $4.16/domain.
On top of that, by transferring my domains yesterday, Namecheap donated $0.50 to the EFF per domain. According to this article, MYDD has raised nearly $250,000 for the EFF since 2011.
If you’re not already familiar with the EFF and the work they do, and you care even a tiny bit about your digital rights, you owe it to yourself to check them out (https://www.eff.org).
