How to sign up for a Namecheap account

  1. Choose a plan. Browse the site to find the best web hosting plan for your needs. Keep in mind, many hosting plans are cheaper if you pay for an entire year instead of month by month.
  2. Transfer an old domain or pick a new one. Once you choose a plan, you'll be asked if you want to transfer an existing domain name, buy a new one or use a free one. Remember that domain name fees increase after the first year with some hosting plans.
  3. Decide on extras. Extra features can be added at checkout, including a premium Domain Name System (DNS) platform.
  4. Design your website. Namecheap has its own website building tool that allows you to use pre-existing templates or design your site from scratch.
Which content management systems does Namecheap support?
