Privacy and freedom

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

Your right to safety and privacy online should never be bought or compromised. That’s why we’re committed to defending that right. Whether it’s by publicly advocating for online privacy or partnering with digital rights organizations, we stand strong to protect you.

Where data safety is a priority

Your information should be no one else’s business — literally. That’s why we make it our business to keep it as safe as humanly (and technologically) possible.

Protecting your data

Securing your online privacy is as important to us as it is to you. This includes your Whois data, your customer account information, and other information about the services you may use. We keep it safe from advertisers, spammers, and anyone else who shouldn’t have it.

Collecting your data

We only keep data for legal reasons, or to give you a better experience. Think account and payment info — contractually needed for purchases. Or legal records — like if you get locked out of your account. We also use cookies and some third-party services, but always ask you first.

Sharing your data

We won’t disclose any of your personal information unless required by law. We also hold true to all data laws, such as the GDPR, that protect your rights. In fact, we go further. We will also fight against requests for information that is overly broad or intrusive to our customers.

Committed to a free and open Internet

Your ideas should have a level playing field online. A free and open internet means treating data equally, and stopping a two-tier system where the big Internet players get more control and power. We fight to keep the game fair.

Going beyond the minimum

We see ourselves as your frontline defender of net neutrality, privacy, freedom of speech, and due process. This means that you can also be assured that we will protect our customers’ right to freedom of speech. That means:

  • Supporting privacy organizations
  • Advocating for robust privacy laws
  • Providing legal advocacy when your privacy needs defending

Other great campaigners for internet freedom we support are the European Center for Digital Rights, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and Fight for the Future. But this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to how we champion privacy standards.

The tech to back it all up

The Internet doesn’t need to be a scary place, because we give you the knowledge and tools to keep you safe and informed. Every product is researched and tested to meet or exceed industry safety standards. We only work with partners and affiliates that share our highest expectations regarding Internet privacy and security too.

Start your online journey in complete privacy and safety now.
