How to use your Coupon Codes
We have created this step by step guide to walk you through the process of signing up with our Coupon Codes for their Shared Hosting Plans. If you are signing up on other plans, or simply just buying a domain, the process is very similar. Our standard Promo Codes will give you 40% off your first invoice for hosting plans, and around 10% off domains each month.
1. Click one of the required Namecheap Promo Codes above
All you have to do is click on the one of the coupon codes above. Once you click the coupon, you will be taken to the website, and the coupon code will be automatically copied to the computers clipboard. This makes it very easy to use the coupon, as you will simply have to right-click and select paste in the coupon box, as you will see later in these instructions.
2. Choose your hosting plan
At the top of the page under the “Hosting” menu item, you will find the option to select the hosting your require. In this example, we will demonstrate how to use the promo codes for their Shared Hosting plan. The screenshot below shows you how to get to the list of Shared Hosting plans: You will then be taken to a list of the four plans offered: You will need to click the “Add to Cart” button for your chosen plan. The first three plans are just basic standard hosting but have varying amounts of resources assigned (i.e. disk space, bandwidth and add-on domains). The fourth plan relates to their Business hosting, and is PCI compliant for E-commerce, as well as utilizing SSD disks. This hosting is, therefore, faster than the other shared hosting plans, but that comes at a price. You should also bear in mind that “Unlimited” doesn’t unlimited. You should check the terms and conditions as usually they stipulate what you can store on their servers (i.e. it must be in connection with the active website, rather than backups or file storage). For the purpose of this demonstration of how to use one of the discount codes we will choose their most popular Professional plan, although if you only have a couple of sites then their Value plan should suffice (we actually picked up one of their Value plans when they were running a promotion, and use it as a backup hosting location). When you have decided on your chosen hosting plan, click the orange “Add to Cart” and move onto the next step.
They use multiple datacenters in the US, and one in the UK. Most of the Shared hosting and VPS accounts are located in the Atlanta, Georgia data center, although some are located in Phoenix, Arizona. There is no way to choose between the different US datacenters. You can choose between the US and the UK datacenter located in Nottingham, East Midlands, UK.
3. Enter your domain information
The next stage is to enter your domain information. You can either register a new domain, transfer an existing domain, use an existing domain, or use a domain you already have there. Because you can only use one coupon in each shopping cart, we recommend you select the “I want to use a domain I own through another registrar”, or if you have already purchased the domain previously using one of our domain offers “I want to use a domain I own through Namecheap”. By doing it this way, instead of registering the domain at the same time you purchase the hosting you can ensure that you get 10% off the domain registration cost as well. Once you have entered the domain name you wish to purchase hosting for you should then click the continue button.
4. Enter your Namecheap Coupon, and proceed to checkout
We recommend that you choose to pay for at least one year to make the most of your coupon code. You should right click in the Coupon box, and select paste (clicking the coupon earlier copied the code to your clipboard). Please note that some Offers will require you to create a free account before you can use the coupon. You will know if this is the case as a yellow alert message will appear, and all you have to do is click on “Create a free account,” enter your details and select continue. You will need to do this before you checkout, but it seems they want you to do it a step earlier. Check that one of the Coupons has been applied and then proceed to checkout. There are a couple of things to note when using one of our Discount codes. Firstly, they apply to the first invoice, so by signing up for longer, you can make greater savings. Secondly, you can only use one coupon at a time, so feel free to purchase items in multiple orders. Also, you will often find some great offers (unbeatable in many cases) on the order form. One such offer we often find is a $1.99 SSL certificate, which is particularly easy to install there (their support is great for helping with this).
5. Continue to Checkout.
You will need to either log into your account or create an account before you can arrange payment for your services. If you have already created an account, then you should already be logged in, and you will go directly to the payment screen. In our experience, you will get an immediate email confirming the purchase, and within a few hours, you will receive details of the hosting service. If you are buying domains, then you will see these applied to your account immediately.

Some things you perhaps didn’t know about Namecheap
If you were unsure whether to purchase hosting or domain with them, you might be interested in these facts that demonstrate the scale and size of the company as well as what they are up to in the community:
- It was voted the Best Domain Registrar by Lifehacker readers in 2012.
- They are involved in fighting against CISPA, a bill that would allow the US Government unrestricted access to all their user data. Also, they took an active anti-SOPA stance back in 2012 when GoDaddy stupidly came out in support of it.
- They are one of the few hosting providers that accept BitCoin
- The company is a big supporter of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, with their Move Your Domain Days.
- They work with website Awesomebabyname.com, which helps parents choose the name of their children based on Domain Name availability.
As you can see, they are not afraid to stand up for your rights, take on the Government, and even support “good causes”.
