  • Xoldie 𝐗𝐨𝐥𝐝𝐢𝐞 ☕️ (@Xoldie) reported

    @mumistarr There an app for #mastodon #Signal & #xmpp There no app for #pixelfed have to use browsers but work great! Host your own email & website have to pay for sharing host like 13 a years i think on #namecheap plus extra for domain name.

  • julieerindesign Julie Erin Designs (@julieerindesign) reported

    @AbbyCreates_art @Namecheap Oh damn, hope you get it resolved soon!

  • solderjs AJ ONeal (formerly @coolaj86) (@solderjs) reported

    @namedotcom @lifehacker @Target The sad part is that back in 2012 your interface was built even better than it is today and NameCheap's interface was almost as confusing as the worst one GoDaddy ever made. However, Google Domains definitely takes 1st for rock-bottom, absolute worst usability and design.

  • AbbyCreates_art Abby Juli - POD Artist (@AbbyCreates_art) reported

    @julieerindesign I switched to a managed hosting plan to improve my sites performance. Long story. My site is huge their for I need Filezilla for the restore and it wont work correctly I have been on support all day with @Namecheap

  • Reset_Jett אהיה אשר אהיה (@Reset_Jett) reported

    @Namecheap @cPanel It's kinda resolved. I learned that because the domain has the masked redirect to a VPN IP I can't do my SSL through you guys. Appreciate the support! Learned a bit!

  • tseyrefman Ilanit Tseyrefman (@tseyrefman) reported

    @Namecheap Your support is just no help! We have been locked out of our account for almost two weeks, and we cannot tolerate this anymore since our business is impacted severely. We have reached out several times via email & live chat but get delayed response that doesn't help!

  • secb0t secb0t (@secb0t) reported

    @Namecheap Please note that we have just found hxxp://, which contains the same Volksbanken #phishing . May be the same malicious customer.

  • FredsDaily HOURLY LIFE of Fred Campos (@FredsDaily) reported

    7p Ok While @JustHost fixes their issue, I am signing up for @NameCheap to buy today's client domains.

  • GregTampa mobman - @home (@GregTampa) reported

    @Namecheap since your support hard to change the whois records for my domain due to a bug in your system applying auto whois protection to my .us domain which is not allowed!! see my last tweet to support few days ago to understand that issue! You should unlock and release my hostage domain

  • iKasch Kim (@iKasch) reported

    @Namecheap @ketrwu Damn, that’s cheap!

  • GregTampa mobman - @home (@GregTampa) reported

    @Namecheap expect me back on march 6th when i try again and i'm sure there will be another issue.

  • AdrianSieber Adrian Sieber (@AdrianSieber) reported

    If you want to move your domains from one @STRATO_AG account to another one it costs you *90 €* 😱. If you move the domains to another provider like @namecheap it costs you *0 €*. WHAT ******** IS WRONG WITH GERMAN IT PROVIDERS. I don't get it. I just don't get it.

  • Tweetastaan Hashmi (@Tweetastaan) reported

    Wtf @Namecheap jani tumhare server issue k chakkar mein mera 5days data + 70 usd lost ho gaye😢

  • Mackerelcat James W. Anderson (@Mackerelcat) reported

    @Namecheap VPNs are being increasingly blocked due to #infosec #infosecurity conerns, while a business VPN is OK within the business increasingly trying to access that network from wifi hotspots is filtered and blocked #infosecurity

  • lulzdotsh (@lulzdotsh) reported

    @Namecheap @nixcraft API problems and/or glue records. Guaranteed ;)

  • _MattyTaylor_ Matty Taylor (@_MattyTaylor_) reported

    @KevinHallon @Namecheap Name cheap are terrible. Abuse tickets just get ignored

  • IBBoard IBBoard (@IBBoard) reported

    Unfortunately, @namecheap don't appear to support SRV records with a port number of "0" (to indicate "disabled"). So my _imaps._tcp.… record works, but the _imap._tcp.… record that I set up first won't look up.

  • KupariUsa Kupari USA 🇺🇸 🇫🇮 (@KupariUsa) reported

    @akihheikkinen Yeah, I kind of just have the site parked until I can afford to move from NameCheap to a better host (terrible build interface and customer support) so I'm not really using it at the moment. I just have my wares on Etsy for now.

  • damcclean Duncan McClean (@damcclean) reported

    @brad_frost Wow, that's bad. I usually register with Namecheap or Google Domains and manage records with Cloudflare.

  • GastonGarciaO Gastón García (@GastonGarciaO) reported

    @brad_frost I've been using @Namecheap for years. You can do anything you want with their service.

  • steveluvender Steve Luvender (@steveluvender) reported

    @brad_frost That sucks! Hope you can get it fixed soon. Just when you thought the migration was behind you. Personally, I love @Namecheap and I’ve been using them for 15 years.

  • TheDomainAgents DomainAgents (@TheDomainAgents) reported

    @ana_mvalarezo @Namecheap There is no cost to extend a negotiation or make a counter offer. Please email support@ if you need a refund.

  • Vozable Noa | (@Vozable) reported

    @HawkbitAlpha Hey friend, the website is now running. Namecheap has resolved the issue.

  • RBerbaron Rob berBaron (@RBerbaron) reported

    @Namecheap I was already connected with support, they would not help because they could not verify my pin

  • KupariUsa Kupari USA 🇺🇸 🇫🇮 (@KupariUsa) reported

    @tweetyloop Uhg. I feel you. My Website is parked in "Under Construction" for many, many months because I loathe NameCheap's poor interface and can't be bothered to work on it.

  • Rembrandtsx Camilo Salinas ❁ (@Rembrandtsx) reported

    @Namecheap Heyyy NameCheap, something weird is happening to your shopping cart, right now I'm trying to renew a domain using a coupon (FCNC2019COUPON) but when I use it, it doesnt apply the discount (of 20%), and when I remove it, it increases my original price by a 20%!!! help🙏

  • sundevour sun (@sundevour) reported

    @Jakosaur_ namecheap has always been a really chill place to get domains compared to the 7 screens of colorful fullscreen upsell you get most places. it's a bit barebones but not all in a bad way

  • feanAD Feyisayo (@feanAD) reported

    @raybamgbala @_saucecode Haha Smartweb is the worst. But this is Namecheap.

  • wilcochris Chris Wilcox (@wilcochris) reported

    @Namecheap Your customer service is absolutely appalling this time round. Long time customer and you do everything you can not to help with a cPanel migration. I'm sorry I switched my other hosting to you!

  • 1888TechLine 1-888 Tech Line Official (@1888TechLine) reported

    @actionfrauduk @CyberProtectUK AN UPDATE: This domain is registered with Namecheap. Contact them, as I’ve done, to get this taken down.

  • Tails_Comic Lynda (@Tails_Comic) reported

    @Namecheap Looks like the issue's been resolved! I may be contacting you to configure the e-mail if I can't figure it out on my own. 😅

  • GregTampa mobman - @home (@GregTampa) reported

    @Namecheap 1 hour and 39 minutes support comes back with a response.

  • GregTampa mobman - @home (@GregTampa) reported

    @Namecheap i'm still on the chat. 30 minutes later.. still being transferred and given the thanks for waiting on more moment please. Your response is quicker on twitter then support.

  • Tails_Comic Lynda (@Tails_Comic) reported

    @Namecheap your knowledge base links are broken. Every questionmark icon leads to an OOPS! this page can't be found. Not very helpful when I have to get the domain I transferred to you working again.

  • GregTampa mobman - @home (@GregTampa) reported

    @Namecheap your tech support is a joke

  • kwameDoe1 Seth Doe (@kwameDoe1) reported

    @bluehostsupport this is upsurd, running parellel system on @Namecheap and bluehost. This is thr 2nd time bluehost has taken my site down for malware and virus attacks meanwhile the same code runs on namecheap and never has my apps on name cheap been infected

  • coffeetwomilk Jord Ale 🍔 (@coffeetwomilk) reported

    @Namecheap Already chatted with them. Your management is literally useless. There's 0 phone support. Your UX is broken completely from expiry dates to even the basic features. And your team does nothing to fix it, other then create new "tickets". Joke of a hosting / domain provider.

  • coffeetwomilk Jord Ale 🍔 (@coffeetwomilk) reported

    @Namecheap Namecheap support defends their account dashboard reflecting a year difference in expiry date with actual expiry date. Face palming hard

  • coffeetwomilk Jord Ale 🍔 (@coffeetwomilk) reported

    @NamecheapCEO your services are ******* garbage. **** Namecheap. Worst ******* decision ever to move to your ******** ******* garbage ass ******* services.

  • coffeetwomilk Jord Ale 🍔 (@coffeetwomilk) reported

    Move from Godaddy to Namecheap. Literally the worst decision I have ever made.

  • ryandarbonne Ryan Darbonne (@ryandarbonne) reported

    @mbryan718 @getcastor @Namecheap Yikes! Yeah, that sucks. I’d recommend reaching out to the bank or institution providing the credit card. They may be able to invalidate the charges, or at the very least stop any continued charges from them.

  • mbryan718 Michael Bryan (@mbryan718) reported

    @ryandarbonne @getcastor @Namecheap I thought my message was responding to a tweet from GetCastor from 2 years ago ... They've been billing my company credit card for almost 2 years without providing any service, but have been glad to take my money every month!! Unbelievable ..

  • mbryan718 Michael Bryan (@mbryan718) reported

    @getcastor @ryandarbonne @Namecheap Your site has been down for over a year now, and I haven't been able to login to my account in over a year .. and my AP clerk just notified me that one of our company credit cards are still getting charged even after requesting over a year ago to cancel because of no service!!

  • pensurfing 🦋Caitlin🦋 (@pensurfing) reported

    @pukaparade Yeah. I guess I'm just so frustrated with how everything went down and their half a**ed answer. I'll maybe look into Namecheap. Might just do the o e time buy with Google for the year to cover myself and my private info. Thank you 💙

  • tonypartridge Tony Partridge (@tonypartridge) reported from Douglas, Douglas

    So It turns out @Namecheap won’t take down sites which are direct site clones and core content changed. #poor it’s been 3 weeks they can’t be bothered. Another host to #avoid

  • lucyamorris ✨ lucy le fay ✨ (@lucyamorris) reported

    @Namecheap Ha, I always reach out to the support team when there's an issue, it's mostly just sometimes the website breaks into HTML display and installing normal WP plugins can break it

  • god_of_bitcoin God of Bitcoin (@god_of_bitcoin) reported

    @danheld @ErikVoorhees @dka218 @Namecheap @BtcpayServer Either way, accepting Bitcoin regardless of keeping or converting solves lots of issues for merchants: fees, disputes, account closure, funds getting frozen for 180 days, FX high exchange rate and so on. Merchants converting to fiat contribute to local btc markets liquidity.

  • The_JHarrison JHᴀʀʀɪsᴏɴ (@The_JHarrison) reported

    @Namecheap @bandwidth was very helpful! They're working the request now and spoke to me by phone. I'm also hoping you two can get together and gather more info on who's holding the domains and work to shut them down together.

  • YungMudcrab_ Yung Lobster 🦀 (@YungMudcrab_) reported

    @Namecheap Wordpress websites are bad, please go out of business

  • lnorton89 Lawrence Norton (@lnorton89) reported

    @Namecheap been a customer of yours over ten years and will be switching to google domains. tired of terrible customer service from incompetent morons. peace bros

  • lynyrd_cohyn Lynyrd Cohyn (@lynyrd_cohyn) reported

    @fuzzbizzed @PMan1 @jasonmadigan @TopsecCloud @teagasc @Fingalcoco @DubCityCouncil @snoopeh @Spiritjoo @kirrus @Namecheap @Fastmail It is 100% topsec's fault. They are blocking based on the DNS server that holds the MX record. My email is hosted on gmail and they can see that it's being sent by a Gmail SMTP server. It makes no sense and there is no point contacting any other service provider about it.

  • nzorach Nat M. Zorach, AICP (@nzorach) reported

    @freeairdropio @ionos_com @ionos_help_US @Namecheap Thanks, good to know. Unfortunately I'm stuck with them for a little while until I resolve this issue because I don't have the time in the near future to set up my thing with a new service, but I'll investigate in the coming weeks.

  • freeairdropio (@freeairdropio) reported

    @nzorach @ionos_com We weree initially hosted on @ionos_help_US but due to lack of chat support and slow response to email, we were left with no choice to shift @Namecheap and now we are 100% satisfied prompt and quality support they provide.

  • TheCre8tiveDiva Anita C. (@TheCre8tiveDiva) reported

    @ChrisWiegman Moving my GoDaddy domains to SG and Namecheap. Never had issues NC. I like "no extra charge for domain privacy". I like that when you transfer, you get to keep the existing time on the domain registration plus you get the 1 year for what you pay with the transfer.

  • mhammett Mike Hammett (@mhammett) reported

    @Namecheap Your website is broken. HTTP 500 errors all over the place.

  • demacedoja Julio de Macedo (@demacedoja) reported

    I asked them to cancel the order. So they repeated everything they've said before and added I could register my domain with partners as GoDaddy, Namecheap etc. I said I was going to do exactly this and (+)

  • francocolomba Franco Colomba (@francocolomba) reported

    Literally the worst service ever @EasyWP Never had a problem with purchasing domain name with @Namecheap but their WP solutions are awful. Since day 1 my site always goes down 2-3 months out, been happening for over a year. There goes $40 bucks of nothing.

  • wemanagewebsite WeManageWebsite (@wemanagewebsite) reported

    @ChrisWiegman @briandusablon @tucows @aral We use Namecheap a lot, but we have recently started shifting to Cloudflare. Only problem is that not all TLDs are supported.

  • agirisan natalie 💜 (@agirisan) reported

    year 2020 and namecheap *still* makes you contact support to get ipv6 glue records added
