Which country owns Namecheap?

Last updated on September 24, 2022 @ 6:13 pm

Namecheap is a domain name registrar that operates in the United States. It was founded in 2004 by two entrepreneurs, who used the company as a platform to launch a series of online businesses.

PRO TIP: Namecheap is a registrar that is owned by an American company. However, the company’s website is registered in the United Kingdom. This may cause some confusion for customers who are looking for an American company.

In 2007, Namecheap was acquired by web hosting company GoDaddy. GoDaddy has since divested its ownership of Namecheap, and the company is now independently operated.
