Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • ElizabethOgabi_ Elizabeth Akanbi-Ogabi (@ElizabethOgabi_) reported

    @anthilemoon @Ghost @Namecheap @digitalocean @mailjet Yeah. On the hosting side it’s just so slow and I’ve upgraded to their luxe plan, although I know I need to optimise the pictures on the site....

  • kennethessy Kenneth (@kennethessy) reported

    small plug but if y'all need a domain get some at namecheap its really. uhh. cheap. price wise. great customer service

  • ChrisDengso Christopher @ 🇮🇩 (@ChrisDengso) reported

    @regisfoucault @anthilemoon @Ghost @Namecheap @digitalocean @mailjet @SendGrid is terrible for makers. They allocate you on a shared ip which is consistently blocked on all outlook and hotmail servers. Had to switch away from sendgrid 3 times because mails don’t get delivered

  • wavellan wavellan (@wavellan) reported from Los Angeles, California

    @WhiteHatScum @Namecheap @selectel @Namecheap Has some of the most responsive customer service when it comes to abuse reporting.

  • TheWaltherP38 M (@TheWaltherP38) reported

    @realchasecurtis GoDaddy is shit, use namecheap so you don't get scammed

  • Dream9Studios Lizzie Prusaczyk (@Dream9Studios) reported

    @AngluTaepalae @Namecheap I think they service worldwide.

  • RiccardoGiorato Riccardo Giorato (@RiccardoGiorato) reported

    @anthilemoon @Ghost @Namecheap @digitalocean @mailjet I would suggest you to not use namecheap and to use @Porkbun they give you better pricing and better support and free Whois privacy

  • WhiteHatScum 0xWhiteHatScum1337 (@WhiteHatScum) reported

    @digitalocean @Bank_Security through to the right department. I want to collaborate but filling out forms is something I would never do. Phishing isn't my responsibility, it's yours. Take an example of @Namecheap and @selectel : reporting via Twitter is fine. All the necessary info is provided, solve it

  • WhiteHatScum 0xWhiteHatScum1337 (@WhiteHatScum) reported

    companies we might loose the fight against phishing. They should take responsibility, it shouldn't be the problem of individual reporters and end consumers. @Namecheap @selectel are handling phishing reports well luckily. End of rant

  • anthilemoon Anne-Laure Le Cunff (@anthilemoon) reported

    @tigranhakobian @Ghost @Namecheap @digitalocean @mailjet Least terrible of this stack but very clunky because it's for everything. I just want to write articles.

  • NameCheapCEO Richard Kirkendall (@NameCheapCEO) reported

    @RobbieWhite98 @Namecheap Since the tool is fairly new we have only been working with trusted partners. To answer your question, anyone can sign up. That being said, if we received reports of abuse, we would take action and cancel the account.

  • NameCheapCEO Richard Kirkendall (@NameCheapCEO) reported

    @RobbieWhite98 @Namecheap We use it only when we suspect fraud and that is the core purpose of the tool. It is not intended for every transaction. Many online merchants have to deal with chargebacks and this tool will help combat that.

  • BoGazey BoGazey (@BoGazey) reported

    @thomasshaffer @GoDaddyHelp @GoDaddy @Namecheap Then not only me who faced that problem

  • DomainGang Domain Gang (@DomainGang) reported

    @jeanguillon @AGreatDomain @Namecheap @Cloudflare @ICANN I like gTLDs so I'm not stuck up with using .com only. The problem is with gTLD registries that don't understand that low prices attract spammers.

  • DomainGang Domain Gang (@DomainGang) reported

    @AGreatDomain @onlinedomaincom @Namecheap @Cloudflare @ICANN I think the issue in hand is domain spam. I will update the feed when I have something new to share.

  • DomainGang Domain Gang (@DomainGang) reported

    @AGreatDomain @onlinedomaincom @Namecheap @Cloudflare @ICANN I've covered SpamHaus reports for more than 4 years now. It's not a bulletproof system, just a trend indicator. If you're still seeking to find reasons to support your position, feel free to do so independently. I document my experience and professional analysis of domain spam.

  • DomainGang Domain Gang (@DomainGang) reported

    @Adrien_Honore @onlinedomaincom @AGreatDomain @Namecheap @Cloudflare @ICANN Thank you. I appreciate your intervention. The culprit is the low cost to register ($1.80 vs. $19.88) and how soon the registrar terminates bad domain registrants.

  • TaiKamiya101 Tai Kamiya (@TaiKamiya101) reported

    @MohammadZadissa @Namecheap Hi I just tried a couple of streaming sites and all I keep getting is There appears to be a problem with your network location settings please contact your internet provider. Error -403-1: 1028.

  • AGreatDomain NamesThat.Win (@AGreatDomain) reported

    @DomainGang @onlinedomaincom @Namecheap @Cloudflare @ICANN I know that for one half of all the email sent in the world the two TLDs you singled out are not particularly bad, as measured by fraction of active domains sending email, and in fact one of them is better re spam than the major legacy TLDs.

  • AGreatDomain NamesThat.Win (@AGreatDomain) reported

    @DomainGang @onlinedomaincom @Namecheap @Cloudflare @ICANN Had you said only this "Cheap Domains + FREE Proxy DNS + BTC payments = SPAM" I would have agreed 100%. It was singling out specific TLDs, when the largest dataset for spam does not support that, I object to.

  • DomainGang Domain Gang (@DomainGang) reported

    @AGreatDomain @onlinedomaincom @Namecheap @Cloudflare @ICANN .@Cloudflare allows FRESH registrations to use its reverse proxy service. There should be a 30 day lock down on this, disabling the flow of spam, and better filters. .@Namecheap accepts #BTC which on TOP of all this acts as a safe, anonymous shield for the spammers.

  • AGreatDomain NamesThat.Win (@AGreatDomain) reported

    @DomainGang @onlinedomaincom @Namecheap @Cloudflare @ICANN You should always report specific sources of spam. But what is unfair is to paint an entire company or TLD based on YOUR experience when widespread data does not support it.

  • DomainGang Domain Gang (@DomainGang) reported

    @AGreatDomain @onlinedomaincom @Namecheap @Cloudflare @ICANN Again: Spam Haus reports trends based on sources that reflect partial data. If I reported this crap to Spam Haus you'd see a different picture. The ICU and BEST registries are offering cheap domains via agreements with registrars. NameCheap is the cheapest. That's the issue here.

  • DomainGang Domain Gang (@DomainGang) reported

    @AGreatDomain @onlinedomaincom @Namecheap @Cloudflare @ICANN According to your logic, someone who hasn't broken into YOUR house is not a thief. Spare me this childish logic already. I've had plenty of patience with the crap arriving daily from .ICU and .BEST and reported to Cloudflare and NameCheap what they should be looking into.

  • AGreatDomain NamesThat.Win (@AGreatDomain) reported

    @DomainGang @Namecheap @Cloudflare @ICANN And I have had zero for months from .icu and never one from .best. So two data points. Spamhaus have many millions every day. Any one person's experience does not establish anything.

  • just_some_d00d d○○d (@just_some_d00d) reported

    @mrhameljr @drahcir_rahl @TheBADASS_army @Namecheap @Cloudflare Yes, a report is always sent. At the very least, that is all they do is send a report to NCMEC. If NCMEC never responds there is a possibility that they do nothing. I've been personally told that they won't do any investigating themselves, a policy I understand but disagree with.

  • mrhameljr Ryan Hamel (@mrhameljr) reported

    @phyzonloop @drahcir_rahl @TheBADASS_army @Namecheap @Cloudflare When I was working at a datacenter company as a netadmin, any CP report that came in (CloudFlare, NCMEC, etc...) with a valid link was tracked down to the server, client, and IP address. The IP address would be "null routed" off the Internet, and client acct data sent to NCMEC.

  • phyzonloop Cloudflare Supports Criminals (@phyzonloop) reported

    @mrhameljr @TheBADASS_army @drahcir_rahl @Namecheap @Cloudflare If you want to advocate for evil corps, more power to you pal. Let **** photos of your child get posted on sites protected by CF like many have been victims of. Let your family member get scammed by a site on their network. Then, reevaluate your position. They (CF) don't care.

  • drahcir_rahl rahlzle dazzle | Still looking for work (@drahcir_rahl) reported

    @mrhameljr @TheBADASS_army @Namecheap @Cloudflare If one reports a forum has kiddie porn, or non consensual porn (i.e. the person whose **** photo it is a says I never said it could be posted). Part of the cost of doing business for any company providing the hardware for that forum should include systems and personnel to respond

  • mrhameljr Ryan Hamel (@mrhameljr) reported

    @drahcir_rahl @TheBADASS_army @Namecheap @Cloudflare I'm well aware of what they do, and I'm on their side. But you can't possibly ask a company to manually verify all content that's proxied through their network 24/7/365. File a abuse complaint, wait for them to respond in a reasonable manner, if they don't then escalate, simple.

  • phyzonloop Cloudflare Supports Criminals (@phyzonloop) reported

    @mrhameljr @TheBADASS_army @drahcir_rahl @Namecheap @Cloudflare Inaction is the same as assisting. You're still an accomplice if you know about it and turn a blind eye. PLENTY of examples of CF not taking action to terminate services for clients who violate the very terms of service they wrote. 25% of abuse complaints to Google are CF sites.

  • count3rmeasure Daniel T Peters (@count3rmeasure) reported

    @TheBADASS_army @drahcir_rahl @Namecheap @Cloudflare ahhhh ****, c'mon @namecheap get on this. I actively direct ppl toward yalls services precisely because you are not godaddy, i.e. not a massive pos

    Its not that no one received an alert there was a problem, its what they did with that alert. i'm looking at you @cloudflare and @namecheap. Sick and tired of you enabling ********** with your services. this will absolutely blow ******** up in your face. @TheBADASS_army told u

  • l3ng3rs lengers (@l3ng3rs) reported

    Sick and tired of no certbot support from NameCheap. Time to switch DNS to cloudflare.

  • BillCubbieBlue Bill Thompson (@BillCubbieBlue) reported

    @cubsguy20 Nah, it's a host issue, which means Namecheap. Think I finally got it figured out though.

  • miklb MiGhoul Booshop (@miklb) reported from Tampa, Florida

    @simonw I’ll add another vote for Namecheap. Also note they support 2FA w/TOTP

  • mikepqr Mike Lee Williams (@mikepqr) reported

    @simonw Hover, hands down. I used to use namecheap but left because of the UI (among other things)

  • parkerrm39 Codified Likeness Utility (@parkerrm39) reported

    @drahcir_rahl @TheBADASS_army @Namecheap @Cloudflare @mozilla @firefox Well, guess I'm going back to Opera.....damn

  • adamd11 aaAAUGH!-Dam D 🎃 (@adamd11) reported

    @Namecheap You have STRONG spam filters on your abuse address, which means I can NEVER mention a domain you host that is involved in phishing. I use your abuse form to submit the report, but then can NEVER reply because you have SPAM FILTERS on the stupid reply address!

  • travofoz 🧛‍♂️🧟‍♀️ 0x7A69 🎃 travis 👻 0x2B21 🧟‍♂️🧛‍♀️ (@travofoz) reported

    @TheBADASS_army @drahcir_rahl @Namecheap @Cloudflare we need to amplify tf out of this. there are business consequences for lack of social conscious. **** off @cloudfare. no business for you. i refuse to work for anyone that uses your platform. I'll tell them exactly why. I can afford to be choosy. So can you.

  • AdamVipe Adam Peterson (@AdamVipe) reported

    As a heads up to anyone looking to redirect @Namecheap domains. Their redirect servers have issues (they have admitted to them) however they are being coy about when and if the issues will be fixed.

  • userentry ahmetgul (@userentry) reported

    @Namecheap If there's no problem in the coming days, then I'll be sure of your seriousness. Sorry! I can't be sure right now. You will show it in the application. * Ok. I will continue by e - mail.

  • userentry ahmetgul (@userentry) reported

    @Namecheap Today was a damn day. Now read those messages. I'm angry. And I'm still not calm. 30 minutes is a very serious time. I swear to you; I'm stuck between avenging it. I hate this problem!

  • ZeusZissou Zissou™ (@ZeusZissou) reported

    @namecheap has the worst customer service on planet earth **** you, @Namecheap

  • SouthernAtheist Shaun Cole (@SouthernAtheist) reported

    After being a customer of 8 years, I'm sad to say that NameCheap has lost its touch. After being down for over 48 hours, our only response from the support team is to keep waiting. Unacceptable.

  • LiveOnlineChat Online Video Call (@LiveOnlineChat) reported

    Just need to say this to @Namecheap you are NOT cheap! Renewals are beyond a joke! Moving all my domains away from you. 1, Your panel is so slow its crap! 2, Your renewal prices are outrageous and 3, Your "Premium DNS" is 300 times slower than CloudFlare. You are a joke.

  • wholesomeyum Wholesome Yum (@wholesomeyum) reported

    @Namecheap @Namecheap Your team was no help whatsoever. I literally received a canned response with the same words already sent to me previously. If you truly valued your customers, you would at least attempt to come to a mutually acceptable resolution or offer options.

  • wholesomeyum Wholesome Yum (@wholesomeyum) reported

    TERRIBLE customer service from @Namecheap ... stay away!!

  • jay_zeke Zeke Polaris (@jay_zeke) reported

    @Cloudflare Too many issues with your service though..... You guys been supporting law breakers and put the blame on someone else that has nothing to do with the website as they never helped created it. You guys scam just as much as godaddy does. And namecheap scams too.

  • fitzy89 Robert Fitzgerald (@fitzy89) reported

    @TerryAtEvaris @123reg Totally agree. I wouldn't use 123reg by choice but it was already in place at the company I'm at. Once we've moved the mail accounts elsewhere though we won't have a reason to keep them. I find @Namecheap to be excellent in terms of pricing and customer support

  • zonkerson Everything in the Wrong Place (@zonkerson) reported

    @CarolSOtt The article was more to support why GoDaddy should not get your business than to name who should, but Namecheap in particular has yet to take my service offline for any reason including bad luck since I switched to them. There really are alternatives that don't suck.

  • thretto Al Hilal (@thretto) reported

    It'll be awesome if there is an option to pay the @Namecheap bills in cryptocurrencies in the future! @NameCheapCEO I use @CoinPaymentsNET and never had issues with it. Hope to pay the bills with $ZEN @horizenglobal @RowanRK6 @robviglione

  • AlexRusin Alex Rusin (@AlexRusin) reported

    @Smallmedium @Namecheap Too bad Namecheap behaves like some of our elected officials - "He did not really ask China to interfere in our elections. He was trolling the media"

  • skystracloud Skystra - Cloud Hosting (@skystracloud) reported

    @someinfosecguy @Namecheap The host I work at has security included, not just for people who can pay for it. SSL certs are free and so is domain ID protection. If I can help you, let me know.

  • ifdattic Andrew Marcinkevičiu (@ifdattic) reported

    @reinink @Namecheap I just click "Spam" button (sometimes GMail gives a popup asking if you just want to unsubscribe, unsubscribe and spam, or just spam), if the sender can't do a good job **** them, maybe they will get smarter when every email will get blocked.

  • saradoxical sara (@saradoxical) reported

    If you need domains or hosting, @Namecheap provides rockstar customer service. (Even when you ask a bunch of newb questions.)

  • standardpaolo (@standardpaolo) reported

    Do not recommend @namecheap for domain registration. They took payment, the didn’t renew my domain, and then didn’t fix it. Unbelievable.

  • marianawrite1 mariana writes. (@marianawrite1) reported

    @Namecheap is having a sale, so I suppose this is the perfect moment to think of ten million side projects I will never, ever have the time or energy to pursue. (but they'd all be pretty cool if executed correctly!)

  • thoresuenert Thore Sünert (@thoresuenert) reported

    @reinink @Namecheap The internet is broken, it’s a alpha XD

  • weedstreet420 WeedStreet420 (@weedstreet420) reported

    @PresumablyPaul @aphriainc @Namecheap They were really slow to take down the previous phishing website. I had to tag @Namecheap on my tweets and then the registrar took it down. I am wondering why the scammers are targetting APHA. I've never seen a CGC or ACB phishing domain.
