Creating a NameCheap Account

Here’s how to create a NameCheap account.

But First …

Step by Step

Go to https://namecheap.com

Click on Account.

Click on Sign Up in the top right.

Enter your information using your ProtonMail email account.

⚠️ This is one of the most important uses of the very secure ProtonMail. A very common attack vector for hackers is to take over someone’s domain name and point it to something entirely different — or worse — something that looks identical but that captures any secure passwords and private information that you enter into it. Securing your email account is critical to preventing this even if you add other security measures like two-factor authentication.

Accept the terms of service.

At this point, if you are up to the challenge, you should proceed to setup TOTP on your NameCheap account. If you want to do this later that’s ok. It is usually best to setup two-factor on everything when you setup KeePassXC since you can use it to handle the TOTP prompt.

Don’t worry if that last paragraph made no sense — for now. It’s there to help you know to return to it later when your skills improve.
