    I know a lot of members of BHW use Namecheap for domain registration, but how is their hosting?
    I have messed around with Host Gator and don't know much about hosting as I rely on writing as my primary source of income.
    I am looking to host a blog, more for fun, & was wondering if Namecheap was a decent host.

    They don't have to be the "best"... but for the price are they worth even trying out?


    Thanks in advance,
    @shelton_sellers

    I've been with namecheap for 7 years. They're good.

    They're reliable and easy to deal with.

    Any site hosted with them that uses mysql databases will be a bit slow in my experience, but for small sites or static sites they're fine.

    Not at all :)
    Hoshing = varies (I prefer to have 3-4 hosting accounts and not to put all my eggs (websites) in one basket)
    Domains = Internet.bs only (they are cheaper than namecheap, free whois, and they're offshore based)

    I have 3 websites on Namecheap. I've had one since January of this year, and two since July. Granted, I'm not pulling massive amounts of traffic, but Namecheap has always worked great for me.

    Their customer support is awesome (not that they did anything wrong, but I misunderstood something while setting up my site, and they were glad to tell me how to correct it)

    A lot of people here say GoDaddy is their #1 choice, but I refuse to use them after that SOPA debacle. I know they apologized, but that crap is unacceptable.

    I am not a fan of namecheap for hosting. I always use them for just domains. HostGator to this day is still the best for the price. Even then there are awesome coupons for hostgator as well.
