Namecheap Supports Earth Day 2014
Leading domain registrar and web hosting provider Namecheap is proud to support environmental giving efforts on Earth Day.
For one day only – Earth Day, April 22, 2014 – Namecheap will offer deep savings on domain transfers and hosting and donate to environmental charities with every transaction. Customers may transfer a .com, .net, .org, .biz or .info domain for the low price of $5.98 (first year only) and/or purchase a shared hosting package at 60% off (first billing cycle only). For each domain transferred or hosting package purchased, the company will donate $1 to an environmental charity of the customer’s choice, either The Nature Conservancy or Water4. If the number of eligible transactions exceeds 1000, Namecheap will double the donation amount.
“We care about the planet, and we know our customers do too,” said Namecheap CEO Richard Kirkendall. “We’re honored and excited to support the important things The Nature Conservancy and Water4 are doing around the world.”
Namecheap’s Environmental Efforts
Namecheap partnered with customers to help plant over 3000 trees in honor of Earth Day 2012. The company is one of the first ever to offer green hosting, via their carbon-neutral datacenters, which use the most efficient Intel Xeon hardware and free-air cooling whenever weather permits. Namecheap recycles all old server hardware and packaging.
