How do I sign up for a Namecheap account?
We would like to thank you for selecting Namecheap as your service provider!
In this article, we are going to provide a few useful tips that may help you create your own Namecheap account.
Before you start using the services offered by Namecheap, you will need a Namecheap account to manage the services via it.
You can also reach this page by clicking "SIGN UP" in the upper-left corner of the Namecheap website:
Clicking "SIGN UP" will take you to the account creation page:
Fill out the form being careful to remember your information to avoid login issues later on.
Username – Your Namecheap account username is integral to your account. It is used as login while accessing the account, for verification purposes while contacting Support, and to associate services with your particular account. A Namecheap username has to be one word without hyphens, special characters and spaces. It can contain numbers and Latin characters only.
*It is not possible to change the username later, please pick wisely.
Password – Your Namecheap account password is the first layer of security for your account.
We strongly advise to use a strong password, also, it must not be shared with third-parties. More details are available here
*Please do not use code snippets within your password string in <> order. That may make your password invalid and lead to account access issues.
First and Last Name
– The information filled in these forms is used for official correspondence with Namecheap. For example, your First name would be used to address you within the automated notifications and newsletters (if selected). Those details will also be pre-filled in your account Profile (but can be changed
later). Email address
– The email address listed in the corresponding field would be your Namecheap account Primary email. This address will be used for Password Reset operations, to receive Order Summaries and for other correspondence with Namecheap.
*Please don't use the same email address for multiple Namecheap accounts to avoid access issues.
**If a domain-based email address (e.g., email@example.com) is set as a Primary email, it can be deactivated in case your domain expires or any email service issues occur.
