The company also celebrates a milestone, Namecheap is is officially the top registrar for .GAY domain registrations. Ray King, CEO of the .GAY registry said,
“The success of .GAY depended on Namecheap stepping up to deliver our vision of a space that bans hate and gives back with community donations. They did that and have gone above and beyond as partners every step of the way.”
Denise Spivak, CEO of CenterLink said,
“Thanks to the generosity of .GAY and their registrar partners at Namecheap, CenterLink is able to continue to help build the capacity of our 260+ member centers as they address the social, cultural, health, and advocacy needs of LGBTQ communities across the country.”
