On Move Your Domain Day, December 29th, 2011, Namecheap customers initiated over 27,000 domain transfers from SOPA-Supporting domain registrars.
True to our CEO’s Challenge to reach 25,000 transfers for the day, Namecheap DOUBLED the donation to EFF to $2 per domain transferred, and extended the donation window until 12:00 Noon EST today, December 30th, 2011.
As of this morning (10:00 AM EST), the total raised to help the Electronic Frontier Foundation continue their fight against SOPA stands at an amazing $62,058!
Namecheap CEO Richard Kirkendall said:
“It’s a wonderful morning; our amazing customers raised over $62,000 for EFF in the past 24 hours. Because of this incredible display, I’ve personally decided to fund our double donation for each transfer until 12:00 noon today out of my own pocket. I challenge everyone who was thinking of leaving their SOPA-Supporting provider to take this opportunity to transfer at a below-cost price AND donate $2 to the EFF for each transfer.”
So, the challenge is out to our customers…continue transferring your domains today with coupon SOPASucks, and Make Our CEO Pay!
