Discontinued Domains & Price Changes

Over the last few years, Namecheap has increased the number of top level domain names, or TLDs, that we offer to our customers.

However, we do have to discontinue support of TLDs from time to time.

Some of our TLDs currently face significant price increases from the registry. As a result, we have decided to discontinue the sale of these domains to protect our customers.

Discontinued TLDs

The registration and transfer of the following TLDs will be discontinued as of September 7, 2017:

PROPERTY HOSTING
CHRISTMAS JUEGOS
TATTOO AUDIO
GUITARS BLACKFRIDAY
HIPHOP DIET
FLOWERS

We will also be discontinuing the registration and transfer of these domains due to their extremely high registration price:

AUTO SECURITY
CAR RICH
CARS THEATRE
PROTECTION LUXURY

What if I Already Own One of these TLDs or Want One?

After September 7, you will no longer be able to buy these domains from Namecheap. However, we will still fully support existing domains during their active term, and you will be able to renew them at the current price (with the exception of .christmas and .tattoo TLDs, where there will be a $10 price increase (to $35.88) to renew).

If you are interested in one of the TLDs that we are sunsetting and want to have the ability to renew them at the current price, hurry up and register these domains by Sept 7.

Up until our September 7 deadline, your renewal price will stay exactly the same for all of these domains.

Other TLD Changes

In addition to the above, we have four TLDs we will continue to support, but which will have a price increase for renewals and registrations.

TLD Old renewal price New renewal price
SEXY $16.88 $29.88
HELP $16.88 $23.88
PICS $16.88 $23.88
CLICK $6.88 $8.88

While saying goodbye to a bunch of TLDs is not our preference as a domain registrar, we made the decision to discontinue these domains out of a concern for our customer experience.
