They haven't given any details of the deals yet. Looks like we gotta wait till Friday to find out.
unfortunately this is true,
you'll have to check their website at 12:00am Nov. 23 (late thursday night)
I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than those attending too small a degree of it.

I just started creating a blog on wordpress.COM.

From my limited understanding, if I use wordpress.COM Personal or Premium plans, they would act as a domain registrar and hosting for my site.
If I go with namecheap, is it registrar only or does it include hosting?
If namecheap hosts also, what about keeping wordpress updated? Is that up to me or namecheap?
Cell plans - anything more than $10/gb is a ripoff.

you would probably get a better deal at buywebhosting.ca, it's from one of the company that offer freebie hosting here

$10 cdn per year, don't think you could get cheaper than that...

My wife is looking to get a personal website. The website would be fairly straight forward, like a bio, etc...

Would you recommend wordpress hosting? We do not know much about web hosting. We would like to obtain a '.CA' domain.

Thank you.

Yes, that's how domain names work.

My recomendation is that you buy the domain through namecheap and then buy hosting somewhere else. All hosting companies include one click wordpress install (which you can install from the admin panel of your hosting) and then you use your hosting companies nameservers on your domain (this will point your domain to your hosting)

Let me know if you need any help with it and feel free to ask other questions you may have.
Namecheap is good for domains. Hosting is decent for a blog and the benefit of keeping it in one place for abeginner user is important.

Namecheap hosting is incredibly slow from Canada. Just warning you, I moved many site out if it recently.
agreed, but can always move later.

I want to host an online store. Sell multiple products. Which one should I use ? I was thinking about shoplify
Consider shopify. they're definitely leading in the ecommerce game and a bonus is that its a canadian company

I'm going through the codes I nabbed during the NameCheap Cyber Monday sale and I won't need all of them. I actually don't know if these are tied to my account or not, but feel free to try I guess.

Was there a limit to how many domains you could transfer at the discounted price? Or unlimited domains?
