Putting Security at the Center of Your Business

You wouldn’t leave home without locking up. But your website is live 24/7, and potentially open to data breaches and other kinds of security hacks that could put your reputation and customer data at risk.
At Namecheap, we take security seriously, and we want you and your details to stay secure online. This is why we include domain privacy privacy protection completely free as standard with all our eligible domains.
However, we know that’s not all it takes to stay secure online. That’s why we created our Big Security Sale, featuring some of the best security products in our portfolio, to take care of the rest.

What does PremiumDNS do?

The easiest way to think of DNS is as the route to your site, and how it is followed by a computer. PremiumDNS involves pointing your domain to premium nameservers and setting up your records on these nameservers which allows for improved site availability, faster performance, and minimal security gaps. Learn more about the purpose and benefits of DNS and PremiumDNS.

SSL Certificates Are Essential for Google Chrome

Since July 2018, Google Chrome has started to mark sites without an SSL certificate as ‘not secure’. This designation could mean your site traffic may go down, and people will be actively deterred by the browser from visiting your site. Meanwhile, websites without SSL certificates have been penalized in search results since 2015.

What does an SSL Certificate do?

An SSL certificate encrypts the data between your server and the end user.  SSL encryption ensures that important data such as usernames, passwords, and credit card information is sent from the user to the site without the risk of interception. The main purpose of SSL is to provide secure online banking transactions, logins, and data transfers that are useful for all manner of websites.
While SSL is commonly used to secure data, having a certificate has other benefits as well, including:

  • Keeping data secure between servers, safe from the hands of hackers.
  • Building and enhancing customer trust and potentially improving conversion rates.
  • Ensuring Google and other search engines don’t mark your site as unsafe.
