Namecheap is an amazing company. They have superb customer service that's online 24/7 to help noobs like me with our questions. They are known for being perhaps one of the most affordable domain name registrars. And they don't operate like the noob traps that offer domain names for free or very low prices with the plans to extortionate the customers later.

But where Namecheap falls short is integration with Ezoic. Here's a quote from Ezoic:

NOTE/Warning:

Namecheap currently processes Ezoic IP addresses incorrectly, producing origin errors unless you are on a VPS (dedicated server) hosting plan. They have not been able to whitelist Ezoic IPs for customers without upgrading their plan. We currently recommend that sites transition from Namecheap to another host (or free Ezioic hosting), unless they intend to upgrade their plan at Namecheap.

Here's how much Namecheap charges for dedicated servers:

This price doesn't include services such as cPanel, which would cost an additional 15 dollars per month at minimum.

I would have to pay nearly 64 dollars for the hosting, and an additional 15 dollars per month if I wanted to keep using cPanel. That's a whopping 89 dollars per month to have a website that could be monetized with Ezoic.

My intention is not to shit on Namecheap. They are a good host in my honest opinion. Yes, the servers do go down once in a while, and they can be slow at times. But overall, I can't say that I've had too many issues with them prior to my attempts to monetize my website hosted by them. And it's not like I have a massive website that absolutely has to be available 24/7 throughout the year.

But for us who want to try monetization with Ezoic – no, don't host on Namecheap. Even though they have affordable prices, good customer service, etc.

Oh, this is quite helpful. I have two of my sites hosted on Namecheap and I agree they aren't the very best web host around but they are cheap.

Once I start getting a lot of traffic on my sites, I will move to a better hosting company like Siteground or Bluehost.
