    @Namecheap this is the second time I have been locked out of my account because you can't manage to consistently name your password fields on the login vs the password change form. You confuse my password keeper and it auto-fills the old password. It is really not cool.

    @Namecheap I’ve been on chat support for an hour and basically been told I have to wait for migration to finish before I can change back to basicDNS 😩

    @aprilmpls @TheDaveCA @Cloudflare @Namecheap I think we’re planning to go the Gym Membership route. You'll have to mail a physical letter to an address that you’ll never be able to find 😉

    @aprilmpls @Cloudflare @Namecheap I was about 90% sure it wouldn’t cancel instantly. Whew. Glad it helped. (Domain transfers are terrible.)

    Thank you @Namecheap for the extremely fast help in taking down that website which stole 8 articles of mine and stole from a bunch of other websites while making money from advertising. Quick, helpful and amazing support! Great people!

    @derrickreimer @_AlexGaribay @Namecheap @hover @NameCheapCEO ah, well that sucks for everyone but the owner of the TLD.

    Derrick Reimer (@derrickreimer) reported

    @NameCheapCEO @_hansonet_ @Namecheap @Cloudflare Alright, let's proceed with the reversal+refund for this one. I'd rather not support a registry that behaves this way.

  • _AlexGaribay
    Alex Garibay (@_AlexGaribay) reported

    @derrickreimer @Namecheap I’ve never had an issue with @hover. I use them for all of my domains. I don’t know why a “premium” domain should cost any more than a regular domain

  • Linkb8
    Bruno Fernandes (@Linkb8) reported

    @Namecheap Transferring out all registrations somewhere else after 12+ years with your service. Sorry, your control panel and system is just too frustrating, not to mention the big jacking of prices over the past year.

  • NameCheapCEO
    Richard Kirkendall (@NameCheapCEO) reported

    @_p9k_ @derrickreimer @Namecheap I agree it sucks and it's a bad way to do business.

  • NameCheapCEO
    Richard Kirkendall (@NameCheapCEO) reported

    @derrickreimer @_hansonet_ @Namecheap @Cloudflare The problem and disconnect that does stem from us is that our system assumes all renewals will be at standard pricing instead of the "premium" pricing the registry feeds us when the renewal is submitted for specific domains. I assume your domain is a one word domain or similar.

    @derrickreimer @Namecheap wtf is a premium renewal, signed a namecheap customer

  • sobbybutter

    @derrickreimer @Namecheap That sucks. FWIW, Cloudflare is selling domains at cost now, without markup.

  • derrickreimer
    Derrick Reimer (@derrickreimer) reported

    PSA: never do business with @Namecheap. They charged me $350 for a “premium” domain name renewal, despite the advanced renewal notice email stating it would cost $18. Unacceptable.

    @Namecheap I managed to disable my 2FA by contacting live support, and re-enabled my 2FA using TOTP method, so I wan't able to test the 2FA via text message, but I believe you guys that it works. Thanks for fixing it so quick and for posting it on your status-updates page.

    @Namecheap your 2FA login seems to be broken.

  • skcin7
    Nick Morgan (@skcin7) reported

    @Namecheap Hey I think you guys currently have a bug in your JavaScript that is making some of the features not work. I can't currently login because my 2FA text won't send, and I can't open a support ticket either. Dev console says: "SyntaxError: Unexpected token '<'" HELP!

  • hiimbenjy

    @Namecheap your two-factor authentication is not working, and it's making me very sad because I cannot sign into my account. when signing in, I hit a Cloudflare timeout page after requesting a text message.

  • DarkMongReturns
    AlexIsBackBoi (@DarkMongReturns) reported

    Never buy a domain from @Namecheap ever. They suspend your domain when something malicious is uploaded to your site they suspend and then lie about the "registrar" holding it. Another sign of failed ownership and shitty customer care by pedonamecheap

    Never deal with @Namecheap they will call you from a NO CALLER ID number asking for credit card information when you decline this they will lock your account and threaten to remove your domains if you don't send them images of your card. after 2 days I have been "prioritized" smh

    Will Hook (@williamtm) reported from Stafford, England

    @Namecheap Ahh, I won’t be leaving fully. Cloudflare don’t support certain TLDs and I don’t see any reason to transfer everything! Still have some non-personal ones I’ll be keeping with you. <3

    @etiuwa22 I'm with Namecheap. Super happy with it for my small blog. Service is great and the prices are the best. I pay about $30 a year including my URL. Recurring. Used to be with Siteground but they're too expensive after first year. Not worth it.

    @Namecheap is probably the biggest scam I've ever experienced. Thanks, money, I'll never see you again.

    @Namecheap completely disappointed me. I started using them in 2000, and due to just a poor customer experience I'm going to move all the domains to another Registrar tomorrow.

    Jovan Hernandez (@jovansn0w) reported

    I've never seen a more gross business model than how @GoDaddy tacks on all these extras to inflate your total when you don't need any of them. I'm glad I'm with @Namecheap. I want a domain, click buy, and don't need to remove 25 things from my cart.

  • FinnCoding
    Finn (@FinnCoding) reported

    @anthonyrossbach @Namecheap Well I tried it, its okay, but the software looks nasty and behaves bad. Its still in beta, but I think this is horrible for a beta. I will keep my ProtonVPN & NordVPN subscription.

    Piotr Bania (@PiotrBania) reported

    I second my opinion from last twitt @namecheap is the most useless and crappy hosting service ever. Today after the maintenance (servers down for 30 minutes) they caused problems with my SSL certs (#namecheap)

  • PiotrBania

    @Namecheap Your hosting is down again for at least 30 minutes already. This is the most useless hosting I have ever used.

    @Namecheap your support just sent me an email saying they never received my email. No need to worry now, I've already lost my domain to someone else.

    @Remy__Wolf @TeesTunedotcom I'd say copyright take down and maybe even consider legal action if necessary. The marketplace that powers it ( @GearLaunch ) or the domain registrar ( @Namecheap ) could probably help if needed.

    So .li domains MUST be renewed up to 12 days before expiring. And if you don’t, they just take it down and charge $100+ wth. Would’ve really appreciated more notices besides the standard one from @Namecheap to note this! Ew

    Time to see about moving the domain name for Polyhedral by LK from Network Solutions to Namecheap. Network Solutions actually allowed someone posing as me to change the DNS servers. Clearly they never checked identity or used security questions.

    @Namecheap giving me the runaround. Never received emails notifying me of a domain expiration, so now they're squatting the domain until I pay a large fee. They assure me the emails were sent, but can not or will not provide delivery receipts.

    @edolnx right now, Namecheap for Registrar and Route53 for DNS - I had one domain on google's beta registrar service and one record set on Cloud DNS. There wasn't anything wrong specifically with the Google offerings aside from being one offs

    @4cfb7cc6 @MisterCh0c @autobahn @Namecheap @bad_packets It's a Namecheap policy to not do anything with those concerns. I hope someday it will backfire on them. Another credit card scraping website which they don't take down: hxxps://diamondhotel-amsterdam.com

    @Namecheap @BlakeMichelleM in fact Namecheap is the prefered partner of criminals and phishers. Tried to down a phising website for months now but they still do nothing, Namcheap is a criminal company.
