Since 2011, Namecheap has held its annual Move Your Domain Day, which has raised nearly $250,000 for the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF). This year’s Move Your Domain Day will be held on January 27, 2015, and Namecheap has a special offer to increase the amount of money raised for the EFF.
There are three fundraising tiers based on the number of domain names transferred to Namecheap and hosting plans purchased. The company’s donation to the EFF will vary depending on the tier that is hit. The full details are below, but this has the potential to raise much more money for the EFF than in years past.
In addition to the fundraising aspect of this event, Namecheap will be hosting a Reddit AMA to answer questions people may have about the company. The AMA will begin at 11am (EST) on January 27th, and it will be hosted by Richard Kirkendall, founder and CEO, with the username NamecheapCEO.
Here are the fleshed out details that were provided to me for Move Your Domain Day 2015:
- People can transfer .com, .net, .biz, .org or .info domain names for $3.98 (plus $0.18 ICANN fee where applicable), using coupon code NC15MYDD.
- When a domain name is transferred using this coupon code, Namecheap will add an additional year to the domain name’s registration for free.
- Any shared hosting package (Value, Professional or Ultimate) will be 50% off when you use coupon code MYDDHOST15.
- For every domain name transferred or hosting plan purchased, up to 10,000, Namecheap will donate $0.50 to EFF. The donation amount goes up to $1.00 per domain/hosting plan if the company exceeds 10,000. If the company exceed 20,000 domain names transferred/hosting plans purchased, Namecheap will donate $1.50 for each product purchased.
I’m transferring a bunch thanks for ino
looking for some clarification – Is it limited to 1 domain or as many names as you want to transfer. Also is it $4 for the transfer (which always includes a year of reg) + an additional 1 more year making it 2 years for $4? Or is it just a wording thing and means to say $4 for 1 year?
The cap for domain transfers is 50 and you’ll get 1 year added to the expiration date.
