        Namecheap may not be the CHEAPEST hosting provider (check out GoDaddy's disturbingly cheap shared hosting ) but I would also not consider it expensive. Hosting and domain registration are about $9 a month typically. Considering how high quality Namecheap's products are and how much customer support Namecheap provides, I would honestly expect their prices to be higher. But if you're patient like me and buy your domain and hosting package on Black Friday, you can get a year of registration and hosting for only $2.00!

        For someone looking for a hosting provider that is a perfect mixture of budget and features, Namecheap is the one!

        Also, I can't stress how great their customer support is. I would say their customer support agents are close to rivalling the support agents at WPEngine, and that's saying a lot because WPEngine is probably one of the most expensive hosting options.

        Namecheap is the best domain registrar in the universe, hands down. They provide a solid product (the domain-name blood that keeps us flowing online) at an extremely reasonable price, amazing management tools with a solid UI/UX on the control panel, and the CEO did an AMA on reddit (we love reddit).

        I like that they know how to handle Heroku app domains. The one-click to add feature is nice, super simple and easy to use. My only complaint is that I have to use a different provider for our actual domain registration. Would be nice to just have DNSimple handle all of that.
