MoveYourDomain Day 2014

Just as in '11 and '13, with MYDD 2014, we're raising funds for online freedom fighters the Electronic Frontier Foundation. EFF is a donor-supported membership organization that works to protect fundamental rights regardless of technology and to educate the public about digital rights. Learn more about EFF →

EFF is extremely pleased to once again have the support of Namecheap customers for Move Your Domain Day - many thanks to Namecheap and their customers for their continued support of our fight for digital rights.
Shari Steele Executive Director of the Electronic Frontier Foundation

To show your support, transfer your .com, .net, .org, .info and .biz domains to Namecheap on February 5. Shared, Business and Reseller hosting plans will be 75% off. For every domain transferred or hosting plan purchased – up to 10,000 – Namecheap will donate $0.50 to EFF. The donation amount goes up to $1.00 per domain/hosting plan if we exceed 10,000. And if we exceed 20,000 domains transferred or hosting plans purchased, Namecheap will donate $1.50 for each transaction.

A Little History

In 2012, the Stop Online Piracy Act nearly passed. SOPA proposed that owners of intellectual property block or disable any website that they felt infringed on their intellectual property. Namecheap CEO Richard Kirkendall had this to say at the time:

SOPA is like detonating a nuclear bomb on the internet. This legislation has the potential to harm the way everyone uses the internet and to undermine the system itself. At Namecheap, we believe a free and open internet is the only option that will continue the legacy of innovation and openness we stand for. Some of our competitors support SOPA, despite the untold damage it can do to the internet as we know it.
Richard Kirkendall CEO at Namecheap

Because of the threat to our customers, we hosted the first official MoveYourDomain Day in 2012 as a call-to-action for those who opposed SOPA and wanted to leave service providers who supported SOPA and other such ill-conceived legislation. Every year, our lawmakers propose new laws restricting internet freedom. That's why we continue to fight on, with MYDD 2014.
