Their position as a mainstream DC thinktank is secure as long as they keep hating on Bitcoin.

OP, how did you find that link?

Searching their knowledge base doesn't turn up any results.

They're going to have a lot of different pages to update for this news:

How can I add funds to my Namecheap account?

You can add funds using your credit card (Visa, MasterCard or AmEx), PayPal or Google Checkout.

Well that's great!

Namecheap's a good domain registrar and
it's pretty awesome for them to have accepted bitcoins :3

EndTheFed123, if you had just taken the money it wouldn't have ended like this Sad
BTW this hasn't been the real DPony13 since he "came back", I just hacked this account, SirLolicon is the real DPony13 I think.

Too bad they don't accept it directly at the checkout, instead you've got to go through that process of funding your account first, then pay using your account funds.

Still a great thing though

On this page: https://manage.www.namecheap.com/myaccount/addfunds/

Bitcoin is listed at the TOP!

Above PayPal, above Google Checkout.

Awesome. I just went to log-in to my namecheap account to create some email addresses and obviously noticed the big bitcoin logo on their homepage. I knew they were in the process of implementing bitcoin acceptance, but this was a nice surprise nonetheless (like when I found out my auto-mechanic takes bitcoin).

Bitcoin is the first monetary system to credibly offer perfect information to all economic participants.

I'm very happy about this, namecheap is my domain registrar of choice for several years now. I instantly deposited some coins using bitpay to my account.

I think I found our new registrar.  Have a couple dozen domains to transfer.  Always glad to support another business who supports Bitcoin.
