NameCheap : No love for Tucows?

NameCheap is apparently going on its own as an ICANN-accredited registrar, and not following eNom in the lap of Tucows.

The latter, acquired eNom from Rightside, and NameCheap was an eNom (super) reseller for many years; the ICANN accreditation came in 2013.

Now, domains registered at NameCheap don’t display eNom as the registrar, but NameCheap instead:

To us, this is a clear indication that NameCheap won’t be utilizing Tucows the way it did with eNom, operating fully as an ICANN-accredited registrar.

And this is good news for its customers! 😀

Hat tip: Mark.

    Namecheap has more than 5 million names. If they move them all away enom will go from 12 million to 7million.

    Tucows knew about this when they acquired eNom. I wonder if Namecheap’s move away from eNom was one of the reasons (the primary?) that Rightside sold the business.
