Why I Moved My Websites From Namecheap To Interserver.net

It’s almost 6 years now that I have been hosting some of my websites on Namecheap but I’ve finally taken the bold step of moving the sites away from there to Interserver.net, one of the best web hosting company in the world according to web hosting reviews I’ve read so far online.

I started hosting my sites and that of my clients at Namecheap in 2013 but before then, I was using some Nigerian web hosting companies : theExperthost and Syskay. They were not bad then though.

At Namecheap, I subscribed to the Namecheap reseller hosting plan which make it easy for me to host many websites with each having it’s own cPanel login details. This blog,
ogbongeblog.com was even hosted on this same plan when I migrated it from Blogger to WordPress in October 2017. Although, I transfered it to SiteGround hosting after few months.

So, Why Leaving Namecheap Hosting for InterServer?

Honestly, the main reason is SSL related.

Many web hosting companies (including SiteGround, A2Hosting, Interserver.net, Garanntor) now make it easy to migrate from http to https by offering free ssl certificates on their hosting plans, which also auto-renew.

So, I am tired of buying premium SSL certificates for each site I host on Namecheap and it’s even somehow frustrating that the premium ssl certificates can’t be renewed automatically. You know what? If you are offline when your site ssl certificate expires, your site will be messed up till you go through the process of installing a new ssl certificate for your site.

Although there are ways I can integrate free ssl with sites hosted on Namecheap but why will I have to be going through the stress of third-party integration when there are hosts that get it done automatically or with just one click integration.

Besides this, Interserver offers cool affiliate program that allows me to earn up to $100 per active referral.

They’ve got a cool affiliate marketing dashboard where I can track everything and even generate interserver coupons, ad banner and landing pages for my promotions. And I don’t have to apply before I can start promoting Interserver as an affiliate. Namecheap does’t have such platform. The last time I checked, you will have to use third-party platforms if you want to make money from Namecheap affiliate program.

Well, in the long run, after using Interserver for some months or years, I will be able to compare the performance of the web hosting services of both companies and share my Interserver review on this blog.

What’s your take on this??

  1. Well, my Namecheap experience is slow sever and I don’t know why my site will rank when it’s new but with time it will stop ranking, I can’t figure out what is wrong.

  2. I left namecheap for hostgator. But I still buy domain names from namecheap. As for hostgator… well, that’s a story for another day.

  3. Meh this your reason is amateur and it doesn’t worth it, i guess you have other reason or dont know how. namecheap VPS or Dedicate server can always offer you automatic free SSL.

  4. I like nanecheap for buying domain names but I hate their manual SSL installation process. ..So, so tedious. Till date, I’ve not been able to use their SSL cos’ the process is just too lengthy, one of the reasons why namecheap sucks.

  5. I host some of my website on namecheap too and the only problem I have faced so far is their unhealthy downtime, limited file storage but unlimited size which is not real, and lastly the ssl issue, even though they offer 50 free ssl for all add on domain and sub domain but it doesn’t worth it.

    I also use bluehost and I think to some extent they are better to namecheap but I’m still comparing cos major website is on namecheap so I don’t really track the bluehost.

    Based on affiliate I think namecheap is not responsive but their Custormer service is superb I can talk about that.

  6. You took a very brave step, i have to be going through 3rd party to install ssl to all websites on my reseller hosting account

  7. Nice post. Mr Jide, I have a question… Please what might be the possible cause of a website doing offline. Sometimes I receive email notification from Jetpack that my website was down for some minutes.
