    @Namecheap Hi there, namecheap login page seems to be down in the UK right now, sometimes it's online but quickly goes offline again when refreshing or entering details. I sent a DM. Thanks.

    Johnathon Wright (@mustmodify) reported

    I want to move away from @GoDaddy. As a test, I registered some domains with @Namecheap. Went to renew today. Between confusing UX, odd programming choices (like refreshing when I update years in the cart) and some gateway errors, it's hard to move away from those jerks. :(

    @Namecheap No, I never receive any notification for Private Email maintenances. And there’s been 3-4 of those in the last few weeks. Customers need to receive an email when a specific service is scheduled for planned maintenance! I don’t have time to check the status updates every day...

    @Namecheap Hi Namecheap. Please let us subscribe to email alerts on *individual support channels* on your Status Updates blog, we keep having unpleasant Private Email maintenances at 6:00 UTC without any warning, it’s a disaster for business.

    @Floris @Namecheap Sounds more like they are closing down, and switch to some other company. Tbh

  • Floris
    Floris (@Floris) reported

    @mattkoshko @Namecheap The problem with big companies that feel successful is that they sometimes get new management, or sometimes pivot, or sometimes get acquired by others and "their" focus is then hosting, or they find out hosting is more profitable, and then announce "all domains free : with host"

    Used to have domains on @Namecheap. Migrated them because no matter what I did I always ended up talking to their support. It was excruciating 😩. Now I bought two e-mail plans because I can redirect one address to many. It just stopped working and I'm on their chat again 😠

    . @coinbase hey i keep tryna log in to get support, coinbase, but your support site seems down. coinbase-support[.]net maybe @GoDaddy can look into it since they are hosting it, or @Namecheap since they sold the domain.

    @FishStix Namecheap is pretty good. When I was a sysadmin I enjoyed them the most. What I use for my domain I never bothered to do anything with.

    Integration of Namecheap as domain provider for users of Adobe Portfolio service program sounds like a win-win situation. Major coup for Namecheap. Read all about it @DomainGang post...

    I only have myself to blame for not believing the negative user feedback about @Namecheap 2FA myriad of issues until I ran into issues with it as well and the advertised 2hrs ticket response time highlighted by other account holders, mine is over 24hrs, still awaiting response.

    @Ctmcisco @barbariankb @KevinMarquette @mick_pletcher @MS_dministrator I use @Namecheap . Never had an issue and always competitive on price. Called customer service/tech support a few times and always got people who knew what they were doing.

  • smokex365
    Michael Chamberland (@smokex365) reported

    @Namecheap It's working now but I find it troubling that there's so many issues that have cropped up. Between the lack of real 2FA, lack of support for 2048+ DKIM, poor API and other issues it leaves a bad impression.

    @Namecheap @kilogram24blog Having the same problem even after reset password. Chatting with your Live Chat now but maybe it's a more general problem.

  • cryptradr

    The website and all services are down because our DNS provider suddenly lost all DNS records for one of our domains.Thanks @Namecheap for ruining the day.

    @hanno @Namecheap May I ask _Why_ they should take it down? The registrars shouldn't care about what the registrants do with their domains unless NameCheap is also hosting this JS file.

    Corpsey Quinn (@QuinnyPig) reported from Redwood City, California

    @nathankpeck @sntxrrtoo @tecnobrat I'll caveat that. I can buy a domain on Namecheap in 30 seconds from a bar. There's no streamlined Route53 process to do that from my phone without being really insecure. #awswishlist to help support my awful ideas.

    @jess_a_turnbull Squarespace if you can afford it. Save your time/sanity from Wordpress with all its constant updates + plugins + hosting + templates + security + other endless hassles. NoDaddy (Never GoDaddy). + buy your own URL. I use NameCheap for that + they've been great.

  • keremgo3d
    Kerem (@keremgo3d) reported

    @Namecheap I've found your recent prices pretty expensive. I saw the .tech domain name for $6.88/year - till too much for someone like me who's living in a country with terrible economy. I trust you and still hoping for even more budget prices.

    @highsidecrypto @xcsler @jochemin @MeniRosenfeld As a user myself. I have had to move all my economic activity to BCH. None of the Venders I use, e.g. namecheap, wishosting, or newegg use Lightning network, it would be impossible for me to continue using BTC.

    Hey @Namecheap are you having issues right now? I can't login to my account if I'm on my VPN but it works fine if I'm off of my VPN. You might be erroneously blocking a large range of customers.

    @SendGrid just FYI your DNS setup instructions led me down a bit of a path! I selected NameCheap and the "host" settings all said to use my full domain, which doesn't work in NameCheap (should be subdomain only). Hope you can update it to save others!

    @namedotcom @Namecheap (Side note, apparently the domain has been down since June 6th when they had a hiccup with gTLD and I apparently just happened to update the NS that day and it didn't go through. Rather than push all failed updates, they left my domain down until I noticed. 30 min in chat to fix)

  • zefie
    zef (@zefie) reported

    @namedotcom you guys still cool? coz @Namecheap got me a bit upset rn. suspends my domain pending ICANN Verification when they never sent the email, nor does it send now. Unnecessary downtime without warning. Support seems apathetic and keeps putting me on hold. Might xfer..
