Web: FREE WhoIS Domain Privacy Protection Forever at NameCheap

If you are looking to create new domains or transfer your existing domains to a new registrar, the budget-conscious NameCheap domain registrar is now offering FREE WhoIS domain privacy protection forever! This applies to both new customers and existing customers. Other domain registrars charge a lot for this service, eg $8/year at Godaddy and $10/year at Network Solutions. This protects you personal data (name, phone, address) from being listed in the public WhoIS database.

Domain registrations are also very reasonably priced at NameCheap and more specifically renewals are reasonably priced, for example, .com renewals are under $12. Many services offer great deals when you first register or transfer, but renewals are rarely discounted.

They also offer affordable shared hosting, $9 month-to-month or $90 prepaid for 1-year gets you unlimited websites hosted on SSD. Non-SSD is $5 month-to-month or $47 prepaid for one year.

Or if you prefer dedicated WordPress hosting they go for $30 per year per website (one website per dedicated WordPress account). As an introduction, the first year of dedicated WordPress hosting is $9.
