Internet Freedom

Namecheap supports privacy, freedom of speech and net neutrality. Join us!

Namecheap is an organization that believes deeply in privacy, security, freedom and equal treatment for all internet users. In the past, we’ve asked our customers to help us fight the passage of both SOPA and PIPA, legislation that would've greatly compromised net users' privacy. We worked together, and we succeeded.

More recently, we at Namecheap are asking clients to join us in support of net neutrality. It's not just a catch phrase. Equal treatment is impossible without true net neutrality. So we invite you to stand with us in this fight. Namecheap will continue to keep you updated about issues that impact you and to provide opportunities to donate to worthy causes. Let's keep working together to keep our internet free and open.

What We’re Doing

In 2012, the Stop Online Piracy Act nearly passed. SOPA proposed that owners of intellectual property block or disable any website that they felt infringed on their intellectual property. Because of the threat to our customers, we hosted the first official MoveYourDomainDay on December 29, 2011 as a call-to-action for those who opposed SOPA and wanted to leave service providers who supported SOPA and other such ill-conceived legislation.

Our lawmakers continue to propose new laws restricting internet freedom, and that’s why we host MYDD (MoveYourDomainDay) every year. We donate funds raised from MYDD to the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), a donor-supported membership organization that works to protect fundamental rights regardless of technology and to educate the public about digital rights.

Our latest efforts: Our fifth annual MoveYourDomainDay on February 2, 2016 was a huge success, raising nearly $55,000 for the Electronic Frontier Foundation. On January 27, 2015, MoveYourDomainDay raised just over $50,000 for the EFF. In June of 2014, we joined Fight for the Future’s work to stop inappropriate spying and surveillance online. FftF works to help people feel empowered to demand technology policy that serves public interest. Visit to learn more →
