When it comes to paying for domains, Namecheap supports all common payment methods. For most people this will be credit cards and Paypal, but Namecheap also has an option to add funds to your account separately. See More
Namecheap support is available 24 hours a day, every day of the year. Their support is provided over live text chat, which has a lower barrier to entry, faster connection, and allows you to communicate easier than other the phone. Because most of the support you need for domains require you to provide text configuration data, live online messaging is the most efficient way to get fast support. It also does not require your constant attention so you don't have to waste time while the operator is researching an answer for you. See More
Not all registrar care, but when there's an error or something held up the registration they've always at least gave it a shot without prompting. This is done in a proactive way, which isn't seen very often at all. This way the user can be hands off and not need to deal with certain issues as it is taken care of in the background by their support. User is still informed, of course, but can be entirely hands off, or not, but usually they've been efficient and transparent. See More
If you have established a payment profile on your account and wish to have automatic billing for your domains, they will attempt to renew the domains about 1 month before the expiration date. If the credit card has expired, they will notify you that there was a problem with your payment and that your card will need to be updated. See More
To get immediate credibility for your idea, you can email potential customers/partners from your own custom email address, using your domain name. Most registrars charge for this, but the first address is free with POP. You have to use webmail (or you can upgrade to IMAP access for $1/mo), but as a free service, it's a great feature to help gain traction before adding costs to a budding idea! See More
