PHOENIX, AZ – Namecheap, the world’s second largest retail domain registrar, and one of the fastest-growing American companies according to the 2018 Inc. 5000, today announced its popular nc.me Education Program has given away more than 200,000 .me domains to students and educators throughout North America, the UK, and Australia.

The “Namecheap University” (nc.me) initiative and website launched in 2014, offering free .me domains, and low-cost GitHub and Exposure bundles. The free product offer is available to all students, teachers, administrators and educators with a .edu email address. Since its inception, the program has helped thousands of students create a free online portfolio, resume, blog – or virtually any other type of personal website. The nc.me product offerings have also been integrated into the curriculum of several high school and college computer science classes, as well as to provide free domains and web building tools for hackathons and other technology events for students.


For nearly two decades Namecheap has been steadfast in helping improve online accessibility and affordability, supporting programs that allow more people to share their ideas and innovations with the world through a website. NC.ME is only one of several ways Namecheap continues to support the education sector.

In 2018 Namecheap partnered with New York on Tech to teach several workshops designed to help inner-city high school students create their first websites, as well as learn about important digital issues like cyber security and online privacy.

Last year Namecheap also sponsored and introduced its first ever “Namecheap Innovation Award” at MedHacks 2018. The Johns Hopkins student-organized hackathon teams up America’s most talented coders with its brightest medical students so they can compete to solve health issues with innovative new technology.

Namecheap is committed to offering high quality online products and services with top-notch support for its millions of customers. In its nearly 20 years, Namecheap has become the domain, web hosting and online services company of choice for many college students, web professionals, entrepreneurs and small businesses.
