Founder/ CEO

Focus: Overall Strategic Planning, Staff, Quality Assurance

I started this company with the intention of building a quality domain registrar with a laser-like focus on the best interface design and user experience, as well as providing clients with the best support anywhere. Everything we build and do at Namecheap revolves around these two factors. Our company culture is entirely dedicated to you – our clients – and how we can help you buy and manage your domains in the most efficient, hassle-free way possible. Everyone on our staff, from the bottom up, is ingrained with these same values and is at the ready to serve you in any way possible. As the CEO and Founder of Namecheap Inc., I'd like to welcome you to join our family and try out our services. I'm quite confident you won't be disappointed.

Focus: Architecting and Implementing Best-in-Class Products

From the day I started building Namecheap.com from scratch to the present day and beyond, my focus is on architecting, engineering and developing products and infrastructure that put the customer first. I strive to bring to life our company's vision of a best-in-class user interface, making it simple and painless for customers to purchase and manage products, always keeping in the mind that you entrust us with your invaluable domains. I constantly seek feedback and work to adapt our existing products to best suit our customers' needs.

Vice President, Hosting

Focus: Hosting, Management

I became involved with Namecheap in 2006, founding and launching the hosting division. After months of meticulous planning, we launched our hosting division using the usual Namecheap ingredients: Great customer service, competitive pricing and an industry-leading product. I work closely with our management team, concentrating on the hosting side of our business as we continue to evolve our products and services. Our whole ethos is centered on customer service, and this is what makes Namecheap a great company to work for.
