Namecheap’s Video Message to the FCC on Net Neutrality

Namecheap shared a humorous video with a serious message for the FCC regarding net neutrality. You can watch the video below and learn more at, a website Namecheap recently launched. If you aren’t up to speed on what net neutrality is or its potential impact, click the “learn” link in the top menu on the website, and the issue is explained pretty well.

Net neutrality is an issue that impacts all of us, and it’s good to see a domain industry company speaking up about it.

  1. Wow, talk about folks who like to think outside the box and take a stand on the issue.

    >”Net neutrality is an issue that impacts all of us, and it’s good to see a domain industry company speaking up about it.”

    Ditto to the max.

    I would also mention that in some ways, in my opinion the most recent FCC invitation for comments is really more like a farce and a shell game than anything genuine. They were already soundly thumbing their noses at comments and petitions long beforehand, so another round appears to virtually drip with disingenuousness.

    That’s not to say, don’t do it, or don’t send them private emails (see email addresses for the commissioners on the contact page), but only do it with the aforementioned in mind.

    I strongly recommend going beyond the FCC in terms contact and advocacy. For a very good treatment of this, read this article: “The FCC is about to axe-murder net neutrality. Don’t get mad – get even” –

    Note this notable quotable from the Guardian article as well: “don’t waste your time sinking into despair over politicians’ betrayals. A little anger wouldn’t hurt, but aiming it at the former cable and wireless industry lobbyist Tom Wheeler is pointless. Focus your attention on the people who he works for, and who allegedly work for you”

    Finally, I would just remind that the issue of Internet governance is also still simmering just behind the scenes, not receiving much attention lately. While some seem to try to portray it as having become a partisan issue, which it most definitely is not no matter what anyone says, it is worth noting that even former President Clinton is firmly opposed to the transfer.
