Last year, our customers helped us raise more than $64,000 to the Electronic Frontier Foundation in the fight for our Internet freedom. With SOPA lingering, we told our lawmakers that we do not want a closed Internet.
SOPA in its iteration in 2012 may have been squashed, but we continually face threats to our Internet freedoms.
That’s why, in 2013, Namecheap plans to fight again for an open Internet with a new fundraiser for EFF. On January 22nd (EST), we will be observing our second annual Move Your Domain Day. Domain transfers during that 24 hour period for com, net, org, info, and biz domains will be $3.99*. In addition, we will be donating $0.50 for every domain transfer to the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
But that’s not all. If there are more than 10,000 transfers to Namecheap on January 22nd, we will be donating $1 per domain transfer to EFF. If there are more than 20,000, we’ll be donating $1.50 for every domain transferred to us.
We hope you can join us in solidarity to ensure that our Internet stays open and free.
