    @Namecheap can't login to dashboard: "SEC_ERROR_EXPIRED_CERTIFICATE"

  • Namecheap (@Namecheap) reported

    @Three_Ninjas No, that shouldn't be related to this. If it doesn't work, I recommend sending us an email to support[at]namecheap[dot]com and our guys will check your host records.

    @ccabezudo Hello Christopher! Yeah, we can. Please send us an email with your request directly to support[at]namecheap[dot]com.

    @Namecheap We're having serious issues with Namecheap today. About to spend the weekend moving multiple accounts away as your auto renewal failures, no warning suspensions, and certificate issues are getting to be too much to deal with. Major downtime today at no fault of ours...

    @Namecheap looks like you are having issues with your own SSL, users are unable to log in!

    @Namecheap I am trying to help YOU informing you that you should inform your devs to fix the bug so that you don't lose money :). The checkout flow is the part of your websites where you don't want bugs :D.

    @Namecheap Still no support for longer then 255 symbols in DNS records I have no choice but to transfer to a better service elsewhere.

  • fatih
    Fatih Arslan (@fatih) reported

    Just discovered that @Namecheap somehow deleted my MX records for a custom domain I host there (to be used with G-Suite). Because of this, I didn't received any e-mails for the last three days. I'm very happy with Namecheap so far, first time I see a problem like this.

    Sam ∞ (@etreeGG) reported

    @snoopeh Correction. I see you're using the NameCheap free dns that comes with the domains. They've had the issue in the past of getting flagged for spam. I'd look into getting a cheap host to just manage dns if possible. The massive free dns servers like that tend to get flagged.

    @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.

  • mustmodify
    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
    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.

  • Ayeshlive

    @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.

  • QuinnyPig
    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.
