    @i_Jane_Doe Use a domain, I suggest @Namecheap and it's very very easy and if you get stuck somewhere just contact namecheap support they are extremely good.

  • clarkmichaelc Michael Clark (@clarkmichaelc) reported

    @Namecheap DNSSEC issue took down my domain today. Support rep blamed the hosting company first. I reminded him that it was up for him, some other computers couldn't ping. After 15 mins found that it was in fact something you're working on. Disappointed.

  • dariotto darioherrera (@dariotto) reported

    @Namecheap your customer service is laggy, I would never recommend your servicies again for any of my clients...

  • dariotto darioherrera (@dariotto) reported

    @Namecheap 2 weeks trying to access to my account, 2 tickets opened, the worst domain service I ever had 😡😡😡😡🤬🤬

  • stephencassidy Stephen Cassidy (@stephencassidy) reported

    @Namecheap The @Rabobank themselves would be more suitable to submitting a ticket with your company and track the progress themselves. It is more in their interest for their customer protection etc. I don’t even have an account with this bank. I just received a random msg with #phishing txt

  • Namecheap (@Namecheap) reported

    @EVDBJL Oh, sorry to hear that. Please shoot us an email to support[at]namecheap[dot]com and we will see what we can do!

  • promoactu Objets INSOLITES (@promoactu) reported

    Domain Name Wire: Customers will understand more about the domain’s history. The message domain searchers get when a domain they want is taken is usually just “not available”. The customer then needs to move on. Namecheap just launched a nifty feature that adds context to the r…

  • gabegundy Extremely Stable Genius (@gabegundy) reported

    @Namecheap I need some help with # ITG-498-71515. Quick to shut down my account, but slow to respond to tickets :(

  • UnivalesCom (@UnivalesCom) reported

    @Namecheap I want to buy one more hosting but $17 is not affordable currently, I want lower price because I'm already a customer of Namecheap. Give me some special offer. Thanks

  • GoldsteinMedia Seth @ Goldstein Media (@GoldsteinMedia) reported

    @Namecheap Oh I have been. Quite a bit! Getting frustrated. My client got the verification # but never got the email to enter it. I have a pissed off client which I don't like to have ever. Not happy

  • Namecheap (@Namecheap) reported

    @henrylim96 Hi Henry! I'm not aware of any current or recent issues. Your best bet is to contact our team via Live Chat or to email us directly at support[at]namecheap[dot]com.

  • miralamin10 Mir Alamin (@miralamin10) reported

    @rjs @ionos_com bro ionos is shitty hosting. no user friendly control panel. and support is very very poor. i recommend you @namecheap or @siteground. they are best hosting provider from my 5y experience.

  • ChuckReynolds Chuck-Fil-A (@ChuckReynolds) reported

    Trying this DNS change from one droplet to another again. Over an hour-and-half now... I can change a domain at cloudflare or namecheap and it's minutes before it propagates out... @digitalocean... still waiting. Never do your DNS where you host. ever.

  • ImmediateMarket Immediate Marketing (@ImmediateMarket) reported

    Just a warning for anyone getting website domains. Do NOT use Tucows or NameCheap. There is no customer support and and I can't get our URL back from them. Crazy hours or run around.

  • airdrops1166 Amjad (@airdrops1166) reported

    @Namecheap Hello, I found many troubles in EasyWP and i contacted the support at least 7 times in the last week and no one has been able to help me, Please help

  • dolben Warren Dolben (@dolben) reported

    Praised the namecheap support too fast

  • ConradMacIntyre Conrad MacIntyre (@ConradMacIntyre) reported

    I just had my support chat abruptly ended by TWO separate @Namecheap representatives. Horrible customer service. Do not recommend. Steer clear.

  • sohansolo Don Quickshot (@sohansolo) reported

    @Namecheap @ecnepsnai @LastPass This is still a problem apparently. I can't seem to login without clearing the autofill in that section. @namecheap please help!

  • _pitest pitest (@_pitest) reported

    @lytvynovayana @Namecheap Namecheap incorrectly marked my 10 year old domain as needing whois verification. Issues now (apparently) resolved, but my isp (and probably others) seem to have DNS cached to resolve to your "whois verification pending" page.

  • lytvynovayana Yana Lytvynova (@lytvynovayana) reported

    @_pitest @Namecheap Hey! I did not find any issues with the domain name. I also see that you don't use our nameservers but third-party ones. There may be issues there. You can also contact our support and they will help you to troubleshoot the issues you have.

  • ItzAssassinYt Ethan (@ItzAssassinYt) reported

    dude Namecheap is being a ***** lately with nameservers always resetting our DNS records and shit.

  • luciensabre Lucien Sabre (@luciensabre) reported

    @jesspwnsyou @Namecheap My issue is that I haven’t been able to reach and view the site (and consequently log in) for the whole week-end. They’re working on it, I hope they’ll solve it as I don’t wanna transfer my domains. :(

  • jesspwnsyou Jess 🎮 (@jesspwnsyou) reported

    @luciensabre @Namecheap Idk what the issue is with their log in. I try to log in via my phone and it gives me the “wrong password” issue every time and locks me out, even when I know it’s not wrong. I go to my computer and it’s not an issue. I think their log in is buggy sometimes.

  • luciensabre Lucien Sabre (@luciensabre) reported

    ...except that the issue shows up on 5 different machines - and is not limited to a "local" one - and that I have never changed any pc, devices, connection, etc. settings yet I could see @Namecheap site normally up until a few days ago.

  • luciensabre Lucien Sabre (@luciensabre) reported

    I cannot login via proxy, so I cannot manage nor renew my domains....thank you @Namecheap for losing me a dozen tlds. 🤬

  • DctrGizmo PrasoonSingh (@DctrGizmo) reported

    Weird. My website was down and Namecheap told me that I changed a domain record a few days ago even though I didn’t.

  • dakyskye Lasha Kanteladze (@dakyskye) reported

    Twitter does that job fine, but I still want to build my own blogging website. That'd help me to finally get into web development. I'll probably use React with TypeScript and load posts from local markdown files and get domain from @Namecheap because their prices are very good!

  • imkamleshnishad Kamlesh Nishad (@imkamleshnishad) reported

    @Namecheap Ask you support team to close debate and close it.

  • 1937Up 1937MessedUp (@1937Up) reported

    @Namecheap @nytimes And email reported to @Amazon who my spammer criminal likes to use for almost all the crap they throw out. Bad that @amazon allows association with illegitimate pharmaceutical suppliers (most online are) and potentially dangerous to the public.

  • luciensabre Lucien Sabre (@luciensabre) reported

    @Namecheap The supervisor reached out and I replied (providing the data he asked me for)....but that was more than 2 hours ago. I haven’t heard anything from him, and the issue is still showing up.

  • luciensabre Lucien Sabre (@luciensabre) reported

    @Namecheap A rep reached out to me, but he’s being rather unhelpful - he didn’t even read my ticket, his first reply (and “solution”) having nothing to do with my issue. Then he tried to lay the blame on my internet connection - which is working normally. I hope the ticket gets escalated.

  • elad3 Elad (@elad3) reported

    @Namecheap hey please fix your DNS servers this is embarrassing

  • yuvadm Yuval يوڤال Adam (@yuvadm) reported

    @elad3 @YoavR7 I use namecheap for all my domains, they are pretty cool, but I use them just as a registrar, DNS is always handled by an external service

  • elad3 Elad (@elad3) reported

    @yuvadm @YoavR7 I guess namecheap are crap and I have to find another DNS provider

  • Topperfalkon Harley Faggetter (@Topperfalkon) reported

    @glassbottommeg @RaveofRavendale @Namecheap LetsEncrypt are a pretty popular option these days, but I don't know if they support wildcards

  • jstrauss J-Strizzle (@jstrauss) reported

    @Namecheap Thanks for the reply, but that wasn’t my question (and you sent me back the same help page link that I included in my original tweet).

  • IanKoHoman Ian Homan (@IanKoHoman) reported

    @najmeshaquib @HostGator @Namecheap and the client can't recover their domain or their account - now waiting for the grace period to expire and attempt to buy it quickly for the client - namecheap's one biggest let down was they couldn't help with this even with documents proving the identity of the user.

  • IanKoHoman Ian Homan (@IanKoHoman) reported

    @najmeshaquib @HostGator I got rid of Hostgator and moved to @Namecheap for hosting now. Their Customer Service Actually Great Assuming You Aren't Getting A Project Where The Owner Can't Obtain Any Info From Their Accounts To Transfer To You - I use Cloudflare for my domain registar.

  • thomasareed Thomas Reed (@thomasareed) reported

    @Namecheap @malwrhunterteam Seems like it would be quicker, and far better from a PR perspective, for you to escalate this internally rather than essentially telling someone it’s their responsibility to report this issue through a specific channel. 😒

  • NamecheapCEO Richard Kirkendall (@NamecheapCEO) reported

    @ArtworkIQ @Namecheap Sorry to hear about this, our team definitely should have considered your issue and offered you a refund.

  • lnettes Lynette Stewart (@lnettes) reported

    @GoDaddy aside from the dubious billing charges you guys tack on, the user interface changes you've made to manage domains and billing are SHIT. You guys suck and I'm transferring all my shit to @Namecheap

  • xkcdfanfucku Tweesht (@xkcdfanfucku) reported

    @namecheap I have been reporting domains and you 'cancel' the ones that have been used but your 'customers' (the spammers) register hundreds if not thousands and keep using a domain at a time (usually pointing to a colocrossing IP) once then moving on to the next one.

  • DamianRath Damian Rath (@DamianRath) reported

    @Namecheap Just got an email from your support giving me conflicting information. Apparently it _is_ supported, if I just use the pre-compiled (Hugo) binary locally via SSH. Just wanted to mention it.

  • DamianRath Damian Rath (@DamianRath) reported

    @Namecheap As a (very) longtime customer that's quite disappointing to hear. I will just have to look for an alternate solution. Thank you. Ps. If you want to avoid support questions like this you might want to specify exactly what blog/portal software you support on your website.

  • bFerrell2016 Brandon Ferrell (@bFerrell2016) reported

    @Namecheap hey so i scheduled a upgrade for 12am EST, then asked a question to your support staff. They decided to take this as an opportunity to not do it at 12am and wait for me to reconfirm. currently almost an hour after responding to do it asap with no answer :(

  • josephmxm Joseph Maxim 🚀 (@josephmxm) reported

    @anthilemoon @Namecheap Pretty average hosting imo. I recommend @digitalocean tho. It’s better to separate web host and domain registrant providers that way when one goes down you won’t lose both.

  • mattcnelson Matt Nelson (@mattcnelson) reported

    @ArtworkIQ @Namecheap @Domaindotcom I've had good luck with their chat support but I pretty much only recommend Flywheel these days.

  • askMeSaaS Travis R. 🤷🏻‍♂️ (@askMeSaaS) reported

    @anthilemoon @Namecheap I just found out too and kicked off a site. Wasn’t the best expietende but their support is pretty good and they got me through it. So I would say there are still some growing pains tbh

  • Azbiker2 Alexander Occasional-Cortex ❌ (@Azbiker2) reported

    @Namecheap @Stands4Honor Aww, poor him.

  • aitorquinza Aitor Quinza (@aitorquinza) reported

    @anthilemoon @Namecheap They are similar to GoDaddy, my recommendation is to use companies specialized in hosting, such as @digitalocean or @linode and never use the same provider (hosting+domain), if there is any failure you can lose everything :)

  • joshmanders Josh Manders 🎄 (@joshmanders) reported

    @anthilemoon @Namecheap For the all that is holy, do not host with a domain provider. You're already seeing issues with GoDaddy. Domain registrars use hosting as a second class citizen and charge out the butt for it. Go with @digitalocean.

  • NamecheapCEO Richard Kirkendall (@NamecheapCEO) reported

    @anthilemoon @Namecheap We're one of the largest hosting providers out there. We'd be happy to have you give our service a try. We'll give you a full refund if we aren't able to satisfy your needs but I don't believe it will be necessary :)

  • 1937Up 1937MessedUp (@1937Up) reported

    @Namecheap Sorry, don’t have time to duplicate all the spam from this ONE criminal idiot who associates with you far too often. I’m sorry.

  • JuliyaZinovjeva Juliya Zinovjeva (@JuliyaZinovjeva) reported

    @wacher_mukesh @Namecheap My apologies for the low-quality support you received. It doesn't happen usually. I've followed up with the team to make sure it doesn't happen again. I'd be happy if you gave our services another try. Please check the update in your support ticket on the offer we have for you.

  • 1937Up 1937MessedUp (@1937Up) reported

    @Namecheap hcpmepdf[.]info domain registered today and in malicious emails sent to appear from known contacts of the recipient. See SpamCop report sent. Not blacklisted yet but obviously criminal activity by the customer of yours.

  • AmberlyPSO Amberly Rothfield (@AmberlyPSO) reported

    @xbiancastonex @MixtrixFix @Namecheap Their customer service too OMFG they deserve hazard pay for putting up with me!
