Namecheap Infographic Illustrates Impact of “Move Your Domain” Day

In January, Namecheap held its second (and now annual) “Move Your Domain” Day, and the company offered special prices and a donation pledge to the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) in an effort to induce inbound domain transfers.

By the end of the day, customers transferred nearly 30,000 domain names to  Namecheap, and that raised a total of $44,311.50 for the EFF.

This evening, Namecheap (which is also sponsoring Water Night tonight on behalf of the Water School) shared an infographic with more information about its Move Your Domain Day. The graphic offers insight including the following information:

  • What registrars lost the most domain names (Go Daddy)
  • Countries where the most transfers came from (USA)
  • Most transferred TLD (.com)

There was additional cool insight on the infographic. Check it out below or visit the Namecheap blog for more information.

  1. As a Namecheap customer myself I couldn’t be happier knowing that I support such a great organisation that stands up for a free internet. I love how GoDaddy was the most effected, and I can only hope they continually lose their market share in the domain field, especially after they supported SOPA.
