Namecheap Hosting World Elephant Day Special Offer

In honor of World Elephant Day on August 12, 2014, Namecheap has a special coupon and will donate $1 to Save the Elephants for every inbound .com, .net, and .org domain name transfer.

Taking what some might view as a “shot” at GoDaddy and its founder Bob Parsons, who participated in an elephant hunt in Zimbabwe  in 2011, Namecheap  has a special offer in honor of “World Elephant Day.” For every domain name that is transferred to NameCheap between August 12-15, the company has pledged to donate $1.00 to  Save the Elephants, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping elephants. The event tagline is “Because they’ll always remember.”

Here’s what Namecheap has to say about this special promotion which starts today:

“Namecheap is serious about environmental responsibility. There’s only the one planet, and we know we need to take good care of it. To honor World Elephant Day on August 12, we’re donating $1 to  Save the Elephants  for every domain transferred to us. Just use coupon code  SAVEDUMBO  when you transfer your .com, .net or .org domain. Your cost will be only $7.88*, and we’ll donate $1. Offer valid August 12 through August 15.”

This is not the first time Namecheap ran a campaign like this. In 2011, the company also made a special transfer offer to new customers with a pledge to make a donation to Save the Elephants. In that campaign, the company reportedly raised $20,000 for the organization.

You can follow along to see how successful this campaign is because the company is showing the number of transfers and money that will be donated. As of the time of this publication, 46 domain names have been transferred to Namecheap from other domain registrars.

  1. Now, here’s a great way to help save the elephants. With proof attached. If only some other domain investors and registrars followed in NameCheap’s footsteps now.

  2. Thanks for posting my comments. I sincerely apologize for my previous comments on an earlier post. When I look back, it was a pure waste of time – both mine and yours. Coming from a different cultural background has its ups and downs. I should be more careful and prudent before casting my views on something that’s not directly connected to my requirements at that point of time.
