…and steeper discounts for 100+ domains.
I got an invite to Google Domains (as in Domain registry). I have a few invites if anyone is interested. Thoughts on Google domains coming later.
As as test, I transferred a domain due to expire out of NameCheap. When NC asked for feedback I said you only offer promos for new customers not your existing customers; Which is true. You’ll get a promo to transfer in but I’ve never seen an offer of any kind on renewals.
This evening I got a reply back from a NameCheap “concierge” that basically said because I have more than 50 domains registered with them I’m eligible for special pricing on new regs, renewals, transfers, and discounts on WHOIS privacy. This promotion will automatically be applied to any future shopping carts.
That’s cool and all but I’ve had over 50 domains with NameCheap for quite a while. In fact, NameCheap became my only registrar early last year. I dropped GoDaddy, DreamHost, and a few other stragglers because overall NC has decent pricing, no constant and ridiculous upsells (ahem, GoDaddy), and their control panel is easy to use.
I replied back to the concierge asking how am I do know to ask for the discounts if it’s not publicized. We’ll see what their response is. I think it’s silly. At the very least a concierge should reach out and offer the discount when you hit 50 domains. It might, I don’t know, make you feel like a valued customer. That has to be better than waiting until you balk at the lack of discounts.
