  • BobBrinker Bob Brinker (@BobBrinker) reported

    5. so i notify namecheap -- the domain service that registers the domain and hides the owner. they tell me: nada we can do. leave us out of it. ok. but YOU ARE PART OF IT.

  • _JSSSX_ JSSSX (@_JSSSX_) reported

    @Namecheap Oh, and clicking on support is an infinite loop, or asking me to login (joke as as don't get the SMS)

  • RemyTheReaper Remy Reverie (@RemyTheReaper) reported

    @mechbunnies yeahhhh you're "grandfathered" in and they don't like that... So greedy. They should be thanking you for being a customer for so long! i see namecheap's cheapest plan for dedicated hosting is $80/mo, but the shared hosting is dead cheap in comparison to either option...

  • Veteranet1 Veteranet (@Veteranet1) reported

    @Namecheap No problem, just speaking the truth.

  • kenliecer ケネス (@kenliecer) reported

    @Namecheap Your technical support is the worst.

  • leeka_loo Carleigh Kaiser (@leeka_loo) reported

    So frustrated @Namecheap for forcing me to double charge my account and saying that's just what they do when you add a new card, like I should have known. Now a refund could take 10 days. They refuse to fix it. #badbusiness

  • hardfire अभिनाश (@hardfire) reported

    not a big fan of @Namecheap hosting as they don't support @letsencrypt out of the box! i wish they did so in their shared plans as well. Easy for prototyping.

  • Heflamoke Sebastian Läger (@Heflamoke) reported

    @PaulChaloner @tsohost I've done all simple websites e.g. for agencies, info sites and what not via @Namecheap over the last some years and never had any issue whatsoever

  • pixeljellyfish pixel_dev (@pixeljellyfish) reported

    @Namecheap hey there i have been trying to access my account but when i type my password in it won't let me log in but says the validation error even though i have reset my password please help

  • maplesbian on mastodon! read pinned tweet (@maplesbian) reported

    the only services computer fairies relies on are: - namecheap for domain - cloudflare for DNS (could be replaced by using either namecheap or linode's DNS) - linode for our whole server and media cloudflare and amazon could burn down and our instance

  • ArvynCerezo Arvyn Cerézo (@ArvynCerezo) reported

    @Namecheap Hi! My site is down. :( arvyncerezo dot com.

  • iRadioTube IndyRadio (@iRadioTube) reported

    @Namecheap I meant every word. I feel bad that I doubted you when something started to go wrong.

  • iRadioTube IndyRadio (@iRadioTube) reported

    On the contrary, you can ultimately trust @Namecheap - even though they are not immune to the same skullduggery that is possible when you use email to register and use any other service on the internet.

  • ringmaster Owen Winkler (@ringmaster) reported

    In an attempt to update the server my blog runs on over the weekend, Asymptomatic has now become a site for a coffee shop. Also, DNS (particularly Namecheap's nameservers, which have never previously been as horrible) sucks.

  • APBullsHoops Anthony (@APBullsHoops) reported

    @Namecheap I'm unable to login to my account (again!)... please help!

  • GunnCrime Ali Gunn (author) (@GunnCrime) reported

    @cmf_wright Hostkoala are cheap (and support Wordpress to make it easy). Domain name pricing seems to be much of a muchness. NameCheap are great.

  • eliyak Eliyahu Neiman (@eliyak) reported

    @alexmerced I second Namecheap. They are indeed cheap, but also have good controls and service if necessary.

  • olamideyelo WORLDFAMOUS olamide (@olamideyelo) reported

    Been working on server/SSL/cpanel issues with Namecheap for about 2 hours now and the professionalism of their staff is why I would never HOST any of my websites with a NIGERIAN company, they don't have that range, sorry to say but absolutely TRUE! #IT #Tech

  • vince_riv Vince Rivellino (@vince_riv) reported

    @Namecheap your support handling an issue with subject "Mail bounce due to spam list" (ticket # ending w/ 722) has been abysmal I've been a happy customer for quite some time but this has me re-thinking things. I hope that the ticket can get escalated & properly routed

  • NameCheapCEO Richard Kirkendall (@NameCheapCEO) reported

    @archiebaer @Namecheap The higher price is the correct price from the registry. The lower price only appears when there are issues with the connection to the registry. We apologize for the confusion.

  • fakmarc Faiyaz ahmed khan (@fakmarc) reported

    @GoDaddy @BigRock @Abelohost @bluehost @Domaindotcom @ICANN please help @Namecheap

  • BobBloomer1 Bob Bloomer (@BobBloomer1) reported

    @NameCheapCEO sent notarized letter twice asking to have admin rights to website moved to me. Different person responding and different ticket # every time we try to communicate. Frustrated at slow response times and difficulty communicating with Namecheap...

  • RedactedProfile 🅽🅰🅼🅴 🆁🅴🅳🅰🅲🆃🅴🅳 🇨🇦 (@RedactedProfile) reported

    @Namecheap All good, I think a new dependency in my app depends on another dependency that requires a version above 9, but it's a problem that just happened and haven't figured out what's going on. I couldn't use Strapi though, as it need >= 10 for sure :(

  • esacteksab Fatty McFat Fat (@esacteksab) reported

    Has anyone else been having problems with OTP/2FA with @1Password. Failing on both @twitter and @Namecheap

  • joehall Joe Hall 🦡 (@joehall) reported

    @Namecheap I tried using 2. It's still not working.

  • iRadioTube IndyRadio (@iRadioTube) reported

    Yeah that's me. If someone wants to donate a domain registration, that would be nice, but NOT from GoDaddy. Absolutely not. @Namecheap is far better and more trustworthy. I also like @iDotz I haven't decided where to proxy this or what to do about network storage.

  • pixelactivist Corbin bell (@pixelactivist) reported

    I don't like to but I ******* give up on Ghost + Digital Ocean + Namecheap. I spent this whole week trying to get it to work. I even bought another domain. Still, nothing and no found no fix. It's @GHPagesVersions + Jekyll !!!

  • jamesggilmore James G. Gilmore (@jamesggilmore) reported

    @jenmercieca At the company I work for (which produces lots of websites) we use NameCheap, and we've been very satisfied with the service we've gotten. They also have WHOIS protection to keep us from getting spammed.

  • mcelhearn Kirk McElhearn (@mcelhearn) reported

    @Namecheap Yes, it's up now. Most every time I contact support, it's back up. But this is happening several times a day. And your support really doesn't care. I've done chats, file tickets, it keeps on happening. @NameCheapCEO

  • Coxxs Coxxs (@Coxxs) reported

    @Namecheap In my memory, I need to pay for a fee when renewing the Whois Protect Service. Didn't notice that you've changed WhoisGuard to free forever. This is great!😆

  • torre_nahuel Nahuel Di Torre (@torre_nahuel) reported

    @Namecheap She solves something that had no problem, I explain it to her for the 5th time and they keep turning me around. I feel imbecile.

  • WadzaniApagu wadzani_wazax (@WadzaniApagu) reported

    @Namecheap having a weak live support 😒

  • RyuuKitten Dewey (@RyuuKitten) reported

    Almost lost my 'important shit' domain because I didn't notice, thanks so much to @Namecheap CS for helping me keep it and solving it quickly.

  • ItsAldehyde Aldrich Mascarenhas (@ItsAldehyde) reported

    @Namecheap I'm locked out of my account and cannot contact support or use live chat. HELP

  • WriteitHall Andrea Hall (@WriteitHall) reported

    @byalissasmith WoWoWoWoWoW! That is awful. Hope @Namecheap takes care of this ASAP

  • amzy_g Amy Gibson (@amzy_g) reported

    @jemjabella I'm with Namecheap. Maybe they do sort it, but I'm really bad at reading information guides so who knows 😂

  • Namecheap (@Namecheap) reported

    @sirgabe Got it. It's still possible to start a chat even if you're not logged in (you may leave verification fields empty). If that doesn't work, shoot an email to support[at]namecheap[dot]com and guys from Domains Team will be happy to assist with restoring access to your account 🙂

  • sirgabe Gabe Mathews (@sirgabe) reported

    @Namecheap I had a phone issue that isn't letting me bring up my OTPs or backup codes....would love to make another purchase with you, but can;t check out.

  • byalissasmith Alissa Smith (@byalissasmith) reported from Atlanta, Georgia

    @Namecheap take this shit down plz. You're listed as web host. Idk who the admin is but they obviously are SNATCHING photos

  • droop206 Mustafa (@droop206) reported

    @Namecheap's managed Wordpress hosting is wacky, never thought I'd say that I miss GoDaddy 🤮

  • jmzavenido JM Avenido (@jmzavenido) reported

    @reginasuarez trying out wix tapos nalaman ko, 13usd/month for subscription palang to premium (no ads on the page, plus file storage) + buying a domain from namecheap pa shit hahaha

  • ReniSugarini Reni Sugarini (@ReniSugarini) reported

    @Namecheap Very bad!!! My friend has often difficulties to login to his Namecheap account !!! And no Namecheap staff who served chatting when he needed help. It's disgusting !!!

  • ReniSugarini Reni Sugarini (@ReniSugarini) reported

    @Namecheap Please help . It seems nobody is working to serve the chat or to reply the email.

  • Namecheap (@Namecheap) reported

    @ReniSugarini Hello Reni, our chat is active 24/7. Maybe, the browser of your friend is blocking the pop-up windows. In this case, I suggest writing us an email at support[at]namecheap[dot]com or try accessing the chat in another browser.

  • half__ro Nagger (@half__ro) reported

    @Namecheap sort your shit out... it's not the first time - #spam #email #scammers - #personaldevelopmentadvisors . com

  • sirgabe Gabe Mathews (@sirgabe) reported

    @Namecheap Your live chat button isn't working. Need help asap with my domains.

  • heyimjavi Javi (@heyimjavi) reported

    @namecheap's customer service is really great 👌

  • someinfosecguy Ryan Miller (@someinfosecguy) reported

    @C_3PJoe @bluehost @bluehostsupport Whoa...@Namecheap could solve that in minutes. I've never had an issue with auto-renew either.

  • iRadioTube IndyRadio (@iRadioTube) reported

    @joshelledge @mdgardner101 @GivingAssistant It's a nice idea, but when I could not resolve your site in Illinois, I logged in from a server in London and it worked fine. There's something wrong with the anycast network you got from namecheap. I'm fine with their domain registration, but right now their hosting is failing.

  • dave_daves dave (@dave_daves) reported

    @friedphishes @StanChart @StanChartHelp @Namecheap @Jouliok @PhishingAi @JCyberSec_ @ps66uk @Bank_Security never underestimate skids, they could do a lot worse than that

  • m4tt Matt Brian (@m4tt) reported

    @psawers Always used Namecheap for my domains. I haven’t hosted in years, so can’t really help there.

  • alphapet_ebooks 𝑨𝑳𝑭𝑬 (@alphapet_ebooks) reported

    idk if its slow bc i need to update wordpress or what. i dont think it had much to do with my theme as it wasnt always like this. ill see what namecheap has to offer for SSL. if the prices are reasonable enough then ill stay with them for a while longer

  • hazizsegun Oluwasegun Haziz (@hazizsegun) reported

    @Namecheap I can't wait to have it as Nigeria providers who provide and .ng for us are not reliable nor do they have customer care that can attend to our issues within minutes

  • FearbySoftware Simon Fearby (Aussie DevSecOps) (@FearbySoftware) reported

    @Namecheap There is a lot you can do to be empathetic and pro-active before getting a Ticket or support pin from your customers.

  • Foritus Richard Thorne (@Foritus) reported

    Hey @namecheap your DNSSEC for .com and .net is broken again. Filed a support ticket but how the hell is this broken *again* :p

  • _olumese Ejo Olumese (@_olumese) reported

    @accessbank_help pls help me. My account 0696375408 was debited twice. Although the first debit was not expected, it was auto renewal for my Namecheap hosting plan. Yesterday my account was debited again. I am in severe pains right now, pls help me. The said amount isn't mine.

  • cudak888 cudak888 (@cudak888) reported

    I'm seriously shocked that I've been able to customize a Wordpress theme that's faster on a shared web server than on my local XAMPP installation...but I'm mystified why @Namecheap's phpmyadmin ins SOOOO slow.

  • ScribblingSteve Steve Quinn (@ScribblingSteve) reported

    @TweetingApril @GoDaddy @Namecheap No problem! Let me know if you've any questions about anything. I might even have answers. :)

  • Tiredofthecrap3 Tiredofthecrap (@Tiredofthecrap3) reported

    @Namecheap #namecheap #spam they start off slow, a couple a day. Then drill you with 30 to 40 per day. They want you to get mad enough that you click the unsub link and they can confirm the address.

  • Tiredofthecrap3 Tiredofthecrap (@Tiredofthecrap3) reported

    @Namecheap #namecheap #spam At some point that site was taken down or abandoned. This latest event is most likely the same spammer. Emails are very similar.
