Namecheap Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • saradoxical sara (@saradoxical) reported

    If you need domains or hosting, @Namecheap provides rockstar customer service. (Even when you ask a bunch of newb questions.)

  • standardpaolo (@standardpaolo) reported

    Do not recommend @namecheap for domain registration. They took payment, the didn’t renew my domain, and then didn’t fix it. Unbelievable.

  • marianawrite1 mariana writes. (@marianawrite1) reported

    @Namecheap is having a sale, so I suppose this is the perfect moment to think of ten million side projects I will never, ever have the time or energy to pursue. (but they'd all be pretty cool if executed correctly!)

  • thoresuenert Thore Sünert (@thoresuenert) reported

    @reinink @Namecheap The internet is broken, it’s a alpha XD

  • weedstreet420 WeedStreet420 (@weedstreet420) reported

    @PresumablyPaul @aphriainc @Namecheap They were really slow to take down the previous phishing website. I had to tag @Namecheap on my tweets and then the registrar took it down. I am wondering why the scammers are targetting APHA. I've never seen a CGC or ACB phishing domain.

  • PresumablyPaul Paul 🔴 (@PresumablyPaul) reported

    @weedstreet420 @aphriainc @Namecheap In the past year(ish) I have reported numerous phishing sites to Aphria. Not their fault there are so many scumbags in the world. On a good note, Aphria's been really good about getting them yanked down rather quickly.

  • skystracloud Skystra - Cloud Hosting (@skystracloud) reported

    @gorechajay @Namecheap no problem buddy!

  • skystracloud Skystra - Cloud Hosting (@skystracloud) reported

    @Smallmedium @Namecheap The company I work at issues SSL certs for free on any service.

  • Smallmedium Smallmedium (@Smallmedium) reported

    @Namecheap I was already NOT subscribed to "Newsletter & Marketing Communications" and have confirmed this via the instructions at your link. Regarding your claim that this is not a part of your marketing newsletter, call it what you wish but it IS marketing and I never opted-in. 1/2

  • skystracloud Skystra - Cloud Hosting (@skystracloud) reported

    @gorechajay @Namecheap If you're still seeing the screen you sent on screenshot, your host's servers are down. If you have a backup of your site and need another option, I can help you. Let me know, I'm here :-).

  • paul_pearce Paul Pearce (@paul_pearce) reported

    Namecheap now has u2f support.

  • VarsityWitch Matthew O'Brien (@VarsityWitch) reported

    @illustr8d @Namecheap Let me know if there's anything I might do to help. We're not in the same boat, but we're on similar courses.

  • skystracloud Skystra - Cloud Hosting (@skystracloud) reported

    @illustr8d @VarsityWitch @Namecheap No problem man, always here if you need anything.

  • skystracloud Skystra - Cloud Hosting (@skystracloud) reported

    @VarsityWitch @illustr8d @Namecheap I know what you mean about the cheap stuff, unfortunately common in the hosting industry :-/. The host I work at made the company to raise standards. If you need an alternative and I can help you, let me know.

  • reinink Jonathan Reinink (@reinink) reported

    @Namecheap With respect, from a customer perspective, these are essentially the same thing. Especially when your "thank-you" email has links to the various services to offer.

  • illustr8d illustr8d (@illustr8d) reported

    @Namecheap I was told it was being sent to another department 5 days ago!! I have heard nothing since then. and it should be obvious, but since I can't sign in to my account, I can't sign in to watch the ticket activity. @namecheap

  • illustr8d illustr8d (@illustr8d) reported

    hello @Namecheap I am unable to get in to my account. I have given you multiple ways to identify me. it's been a week. urls are expiring. I can't give you money. HELP.

  • reinink Jonathan Reinink (@reinink) reported

    @Namecheap Also, for what it's worth, I don't think I should have to login to unsubscribe/change my email preferences.

  • Namecheap (@Namecheap) reported

    @jamesnader Hi James! We understand how frustrating that can be. Please chat with us again or shoot an email at support[at]namecheap[dot]com to check the exact reason of the block.

  • lucaslsf Lucas Morales 🏴 (@lucaslsf) reported

    @Namecheap I've been on the chat support for more than 40 minutes, asking for a simple DNS change

  • Namecheap (@Namecheap) reported

    @ffforward You can send the report to support[at]namecheap[dot]com directly, and we will make sure to forward it to the corresponding team.

  • realstockforum KNoah (@realstockforum) reported

    Imagine having 6 domains that you are working on branding redirecting to a sketchy, third party e-commerce website. Notice 3-6 months later. #namecheap I am so disappointed in your services that I will be promptly moving domains elsewhere. 3 year customer. Gone.

  • Arena_RO Arena Ragnarok onlin (@Arena_RO) reported

    @3nitynetworks @Namecheap hello can you fix my server its stop today

  • Zaxounette Vincent 'Zaxounette' Moroux (@Zaxounette) reported

    @skystracloud @pablof7z @Namecheap @BitPay @BtcpayServer @stephanlivera @american_hodl He means Lightning Network (LN), second layer protocole on top of the Bitcoin (BTC) Blockchain.

  • jaseytech Jasey #Salesforce (@jaseytech) reported

    @Namecheap I would, but when I try to contact live support or open a ticket, I get a CAPTCHA pop-up asking if I’m human- when I attempt to click that I am, it brings up a picture puzzle thing that if I click, it closes and enters into a loop

  • derekslenk Derek Slenk (@derekslenk) reported

    @Namecheap I did. It was faster to use your live support to change the glue records than your website...I really don't think it should be that way.

  • killcrit CackleTV (@killcrit) reported

    @Namecheap no, i shopped elsewhere, but if you want me to get ahold of your technical and design department, I can show you how to develop a login system that is proper and pleasant. of course i wont be pleasant to them, calling them retards and idiots

  • GusYounis Gus Younis (@GusYounis) reported

    I've seen a lot of GoDaddy ads in Arabic on YouTube recently. If you're new to the online business, don't use them. I was their client for about 10yrs and I always had problems. Use @Namecheap instead, way much better

  • netsolcares Network Solutions (@netsolcares) reported

    @greenwireIT @Namecheap @Cloudflare @GoDaddy You would need to call into our support or submit an authenticated support ticket through you account manager to enable two factor authentication, correct. You may receive an offer on a product if it is possible that you can benefit from it.

  • BanannaP BanannaPudding (@BanannaP) reported

    @tarochan_is_me @HikariX86 Looks like Hikari's domain is registered with Namecheap, I recommend them too! Whatever you do, never get anything from GoDaddy. You can google why. In short they are awful. Also, double-check renewal prices. Some TLDs have very cheap 1st year, e.g. $2/y, but renewal is $50/y.

  • netsolcares Network Solutions (@netsolcares) reported

    @greenwireIT @Namecheap @Cloudflare @GoDaddy Network Solutions does currently offer two factor authentication. If you would like to set this up on your account, please contact our support team at 1-800-333-7680.

  • alanajoy ΛJ 🤜🏾🤛🏻 (@alanajoy) reported

    @mediatemplehelp @Namecheap has confirmed that the DNS has fully propagated yet the site is still showing the media temple account login page upon landing instead of allowing me to complete my WordPress install. Your response is appreciated.


    @firebird1409 @x0_1372 @masonasons @jaybird110127 @nikola_stojsic yep, namecheap can help, but more better to use a vps server for mail and other stuff. also you can use freenom to get a free domain for 12 months. and you can pay 5 dollars per months to digitalocean, or less with other vps hosting for a server. or use with your localhost.

  • vincemalfeo Vince Malfeo (@vincemalfeo) reported

    @SolitaryMindset @HGSupport @HostGator @Namecheap Let me know how Namecheap goes...I'm so tired of Hostgator. Have 2 accounts here, chat support is worthless. Phone support is a little better but still...people working there are not knowledgable of technical issues and just Google answers.

  • dipowo Ladi (@dipowo) reported

    @Namecheap guys, my company's email system on your server isn't working. We can't send or receive email. Kindly fix up pls.

  • MalliardReport The Malliard Report (@MalliardReport) reported

    @Namecheap its not worth digging back tho. I am hoping this is the last time... I feel tech support was unhelpful... hard to believe you don't have supervisors or a phone number to call and speak to someone. I fixed with google search results since your tech team kept sharing the same link

  • Yon_Delonge BukanOrangBaik (@Yon_Delonge) reported

    @Namecheap I can't log in because I lost my Google Authenticator and backup code, but email support and live chat have no response

  • dfravel Dave Fravel (@dfravel) reported

    @NameCheapCEO thanks so much, Richard. I was almost positive that this was a registry issue, and not @Namecheap's doing. I appreciate you confirming that.

  • JuliyaZinovjeva Juliya Zinovjeva (@JuliyaZinovjeva) reported

    @reallogointern @NameCheapCEO @Namecheap My apologies for the inconvenience. I've passed this case to our Head of Customer Support, you should get a response from her within an hour or so.

  • kadi_akb KaDi Yao Tay (@kadi_akb) reported

    Namecheap support is the bomb!

  • salesas Me (@salesas) reported

    @Namecheap I think that without removing the limits it’s impossible to move from Google. While O365 doesn’t support the “+” it does allow effectively unlimited aliases (though the + is a killer feature).

  • smakosh Smakosh (@smakosh) reported

    I'm open sourcing @beafappdotcom code source soon & shutting it down, it's almost a year now: - Learned a ton - 51 users signed up - 0 revenue - paid $60/year for @digitalocean droplet - paid $14 for the domain name on @Namecheap - Paid $0 for deploying the frontene on @Netlify

  • Jaxidian Shane Milton ☁️ (@Jaxidian) reported

    @NameCheapCEO @Namecheap A ticket has been submitted with all of the details you asked for and that the abuse support ticket form requested: #YET-525-81528

  • NameCheapCEO Richard Kirkendall (@NameCheapCEO) reported

    @Jaxidian @Namecheap Shane, would you mind going to our support and sharing all the headers etc. so we can investigate this for you. Please refer to this conversation when you do. I apologize for the inconvenience here. We'd like to look deeper into this. Thanks.

  • wanderingburley Papa Moose (@wanderingburley) reported

    @BearlyDoug @Dynadot I've been using Namecheap for a bit, their UI is good, they have a decent DNS service free WHOIS protection and support MFA. I'll def check out Dynadot though. You always have good recommendations 👍

  • Arktronic Sasha R. K. (@Arktronic) reported

    I stopped using Namecheap a while ago because of shit like this - and them not caring.

  • codemonkeyism Stephan Schmidt 🚀 (@codemonkeyism) reported

    Looks like @Namecheap has major problems, I get a lot of errors when editing DNS settings.

  • chrisrouse chris (@chrisrouse) reported

    Really struggling with @Namecheap’s support team today. I don’t feel like they’re listening to me. They used to be a lot easier to work with, now it feels extremely scripted.

  • 3ndG4me_ 3ndG4me (@3ndG4me_) reported

    @spiceywasabi @Namecheap @wrccdc Nope either use “@“ or “proper” sub domain in ya syntax, no full TLDs. Ran into a similar issue when setting my new domain the other day 😬 you’re not alone lol

  • gdfbacchus Jacob Spookt (@gdfbacchus) reported

    @BoomerGroyp9000 @PaleoconR I recommend Namecheap over Godaddy... Had some serious issues with Godaddy and apparently many other people have too. Namecheap is similarly priced and way better.

  • josharcher Josh Archer (@josharcher) reported

    @Namecheap Another browser/internet connection doesn't fix a 500 error, that's your end. And your payment system not working. Think I'll just go elsewhere.

  • josharcher Josh Archer (@josharcher) reported

    @duplikey @Namecheap They're definitely having problems. @Namecheap site just returns 500 errors right now.

  • 3ndG4me_ 3ndG4me (@3ndG4me_) reported

    @spiceywasabi @Namecheap Had a weird issue today where a TXT record updated almost immediately everywhere but took a solid 20 minutes for Google DNS to pick it up. Was the strangest delay. DNS is never one to be consistent mind you, but that one was abnormal since it seemed to be every where but Google.

  • domain_org Domain Authority (@domain_org) reported

    @DomainGang @bhartzer @doticu @Namecheap @Cloudflare The @FTC and @CRTCeng and the #EU need to crack down on persistent spammers.

  • PatricioAuthor2 Enkigenics (@PatricioAuthor2) reported

    @Willywild6 @luisesgo @hijadeivan Namecheap and Whoisguard: Namecheap is an American registrar. Their affiliated company for providing proxy protection is Whoisguard. For a while now Namecheap has been in the shadows and a registrar behind bad events impacting innocent consumers.

  • BTCPuertoRico ⚡️Bitcoin Puerto Rico⚡️ (@BTCPuertoRico) reported

    @Jasonhcwong @hkmaplive Namecheap uses @BitPay , an historical bad actor.

  • duellsy Chris Duell (@duellsy) reported

    @driesvints @Namecheap @Cloudflare @Mail_Gun @Mailchimp @laravelphp @tailwindcss Convert this process to a service/tool and take my money please.

  • jeffreynunn Jeffrey Nunn (@jeffreynunn) reported

    bhartzer: DomainGang doticu Namecheap Cloudflare I don’t see a problem with doing promos and offering low prices for first year reg. Some will take advantage of it, nothing you can do about that. But it can lead to some biz buying a domain vs putting up only a Facebook page.
