I left GoDaddy for NameCheap based on a rec on this board and am happy that I did. When it's time to renew a domain name registration, I don't have to jump through a bunch of "stuff" and change the registration period from 2 years to 1 year as 1 year is the default choice on renewal periods with NameCheap.

A coupla clicks from the e-mail reminder and I'm done.

Sooo much easier...

Hey "ole cool beans"

Thanks for the info Bill. NameCheap is much cheaper than GoDaddy . Unfortunately, I recently renewed my domain registration with GD for 2 years (a dollar short and a day late as usual) (lol) Does NC also include a secured email addy in their price ... for future reference?

Take care buddy,

I just started using them, but I believe they do. However, mejayroberts (who recced NC to us a while back) and Radish may know more about services offered since they've been using NC longer than I.

I'm pretty happy with namecheap. Their email servers seem to go down for a few minutes most days around midnight, but other than that the service has been reliable and the company/website is easy to work with. [They go down in the sense that you can't receive emails... I'm not sending email through namecheap's servers because I have Verizon FiOS and they block access to anyone else's outgoing mail server.]

I don't know what "a secured email addy" is, in this context, so I'd need a more detailed description to answer that question.

I believe some mail services have enabled an alternate port to get around such limits.

Yeah, I should check into that sometime. I just send using Verizon's outgoing server.

According to GoDaddy ... all emails are processed via their SSL server ... at least that's what they told me when they informed me I had email capability on my account. So I set one up and its been very reliable so far.

Port 587 (smtp mail submission) is actually the preferred port for mail submission for relay and many mail servers also listen on that port in addition to 25. It's a registered port with IANA and covered by RFC2476.

I have had no problems with http://www.namecheap.com/ for six years of domain registration, and supplying SSL Certificates and DNS services. I've not tried their web hosting, preferring to use http://www.knownhost.com/ for my Virtual Private Servers.

Still a novice "webmaster" after eight years of having a website, I
didn't know what SSL stood for, so I googled it, and was surprised by
Ask.com's priorities. I mean what does the top entry have to do with SSL?

stockmover,

According to GoDaddy ... all emails are processed via their SSL server ...

You can set Namecheap up either way, normal or secured. If your domain is, say, stockmover.com and you host it at Namecheap, then for normal email your server would be mail.stockmover.com (both incoming and outgoing) and the SMTP port 26. If you want secured email, you'd use server10.namecheaphosting.com and the SMTPS port 465. (It might not be "server10" for you, that's what it is for one of my accounts, but it'd be something similar.)

stockmover,

I should thank you too. I changed my email client over to the SSL settings, and now I can send my email through Namecheap's servers rather than through Verizon's. Seems to be much faster.

Should have thought to try that ages ago, but I didn't.
