Move Domains Away from Namecheap to Epik

Dear Domainers everywhere,

This week it has been made clear to me by events in the following thread at NamePros (industry's #1 Domain Forum) that your domains are most safe at a small Registry like Epik.com where you can still contact the owner, Rob Monster, directly; please read more here: https://www.namepros.com/threads/the-domain-jixhost-com-was-hijacked-and-stolen-to-another-registrar.1237711/page-3

Large Registries like Namecheap.com & GoDaddy.com are too big, corporate, & impersonal to help small domain investors at our time of need. They aren't able to bend rigid & outdated policies to do the right thing based on the circumstances of a particular case like JixHost.com

Secondly, I'm reminded that if you have a domain issue, go directly to the best Domain Attorney, John Berryhill: https://JohnBerryhill.com/
He's successfully represented me & I highly recommend him to others.

I'm disappointed with Namecheap.com as I thought they would act with integrity and open up their own independent investigation instead of relying on GoDaddy.com who we already knew was too big to be helpful. But I thought the smaller & more domainer-friendly Namecheap.com would help because they had a better reputation than terrible GoDaddy.

Turns out Namecheap.com is also too filled with red-tape to care or flex their policy based on the circumstances. I will be moving my ~thousand domains away from Namecheap.com to a Registry small enough to care & with an owner I can message directly, @RobMonster at www.Epik.com. If JixHost had been moved to Epik, you'd have your domain back the first week it was stolen.

Please, everyone with a voice, urge others to move their domains away from Namecheap for your own safety.

Sincerely,
Bryant Jones
