Namecheap’s Move Your Domain Day is almost half way over, and it looks like it has been a resounding success so far, especially considering the amount of marketing dollars the company has spent (not much in my opinion) on this campaign.
As of 1:30pm EST today, Namecheap has raised $10,635 for the Electronic Frontier Foundation, according to the counter on the company’s home page. This translates to 10,635 domain names transferred to Namecheap using the special offer code SOPASucks.
By the end of the business day in California, I would not be surprised at all to see over 25,000 domain names transferred to Namecheap. I would also imagine other companies are beneficiaries of this campaign to transfer domain names away from Go Daddy.
When you think about it, the number of domain names being transferred is a drop in the bucket considering the tens of millions of domain names registered at Go Daddy. However, this action sends a very strong message to the company and its new investors.
