    I should have honestly chosen @bluehost over @Namecheap. I’m having problems with my website every time! I keep having to contact their support team every week! #annoying #notworhtit

    @Namecheap Try it yourself, it redirects to the site. I tried on my phone and computer, I can’t be having this bad reputable domain directing to my site.

    I miss having a blog. Even though I was shit at blogging... I think I have a domain in my namecheap account somewhere

    @Namecheap it is your problem, not mine. I just cleaned my cookies, other users may know how to do so - and that is a problem for you, not for me.

    @Namecheap it wouldn't let me thorugh because i don't have a support pin

  • TaylorEverlund
    Taylor (@TaylorEverlund) reported

    @Namecheap I’ve tried your live support 2-3 times over the last couple months and they seem convinced it’s user error. I have multiple users in different states in the US experiencing delays of up to 30+ secs to load webpages on my tier 3 reseller account on different domains.

    @Namecheap hi, can't get verification code to my phone and can't login thereafter. What to do?

    @RedRoxProjects @LiamSorta @_phzn @Namecheap @NamecheapPR Tbh that is what shocks me most. If you mess up, you tell the customer and say how sorry you are then go fix it - not send them round in circles blaming them!

    @LiamSorta @_phzn @CrabLabuk @Namecheap @NamecheapPR Will do - it’s all my company domains too - it’s outrageously fear inducing to get this kind of service for their mistake!

    @JuanSGalt @BitPay @SamouraiWallet @Namecheap Dude I feel your pain. @GlobeeCom not only ingests all the miners fees but allows customers and merchants to choose whatever compatibility they want. @Namecheap is a great name and should not degrade their service offering.

    @Namecheap I made the switch from #hostgator to #NameCheap hoping for atleast "more than average" service but I am really disappointed. When was the last time anyone encountered problems with adding accounts in WHM? Namecheap can't even get that right. ZERO VALUE FOR MONEY!

    @Namecheap I’ll try again. But it’s always correct and gets fixed and then a few days later it goes down again...

    Jennifer Dempsey Palmer (@jdempseydesigns) reported

    I am totally fed up with @Namecheap and my domains constantly not working or redirectly properly. Ugh. Thank you @Wix for helping me out with a temp website. Probably going to look at moving my domains over now.

    @DMFSaint idk..I only hold a handful of domains but never paid that much. I always use @Namecheap tho

  • _phzn
    Kevin Lewis (@_phzn) reported

    @samphippen @RedRoxProjects oh right no - they haven't taken $200 yet. Some domains were renewing, there was a chargeback for some reason and now Namecheap have said if you don't give us $200 for the chargeback + domain costs - we'll kill your account and cancel all domains in the account.

    @Namecheap I’m getting some weird correspondence that feels like phishing through your support system - is this legit?

  • RuggedWriting

    Shopify + Namecheap support have spoiled me. Facebook is a bloody nightmare, and the simplest things don't have solutions. I've 10xd my cortisol and nothing has been solved.

    @Namecheap @CoinTiger I stopped paying for your services via Bitpay when they started to pull their dirty tricks. I would welcome the change of your payment processor (ideally to the one which support Lightning) and start paying for domains using Bitcoin again.

    @GlobeeCom @bitmaster177 @Namecheap @CoinTiger @coin_gate @OpenNodeCo @Patrizio23 This seems reasonable, no more stupid BIP70, core supporters get their fancy lightning network, and us bitcoin cash supporters are happy too since unlike with btcpay we don't lose bch support. (And support for a few more alts. Cool.) This would be a great upgrade for everyone :)

    just setup gmail for a domain, via namecheap. Took 10mins, and costs one coffee a month. Damn site easier than installing and setting up postfix.

    @Nogard_YT @adfly @Namecheap @GoDaddy If not, just buy a cheap Wordpress hosting package. @Namecheap offers easywp. First year costs only $8.95. Also no domain is for the beginning not needed. Just a few clicks and the site is fit to go. Also they support PayPal! You can buy today easywp at namecheap

    @namecheap support is fucking ass. won't fucking help me with getting a refund for a domain that was bought without my authorization, just telling me some bullshit like "run a virus scan and send us the results" like what the fuck fuck off just help me nigga

  • waddleofficial
    Waddle (@waddleofficial) reported

    @Namecheap support is fucking ass. Contacted them WEEKS AGO because I got hacked -- "Priority: High". Still no fucking response. Go suck a dick namecheap, I'm moving to a new domain provider if I don't get a fucking response soon.

    @Namecheap That would explain it. I guess I've never noticed that before, and/or the other registrars don't do that. Thanks for the info!

    NutPanda~Ankit ;) (@NutPandaDotCom) reported

    Hey @Namecheap added 9 usd but was not added in your system the support agent said me to add once more as the previous would be refunded so added again 9 usd same happened. Now you got me stuck with 18usd. Is this the service? How am I suppose to buy domain in emergency?

    @iPadGuild My issue is with @namecheap having XMLRPC issues not allowing me to use apps like Ulysses and MarsEdit 4. Not sure why they have a rate limit but I have been on support for over an hour and NOTHING has worked.

  • fulhack
    Erik Bernhardsson (@fulhack) reported

    . @awscloud's Route 53 feature is amazing for DNS but absolute trash as a registrar. They just lost two of my domains I tried to transfer in and the third one fails for unknown reasons. I guess I'm stuck w Namecheap as the least bad (?) option.

    @Namecheap Does this work with all TLDs? I've got a .online registered with you, for which DNSSEC is required. .online supports it, can a support agent enter the details?

    @Namecheap #QQY-188-10138 Hopefully you guys will actually take action this time instead of refusing to investigate just because it may not be hosted on your servers. You own the domain and therefor have the power to end its ability to function as a scam. Support refused last time in ticket

    Hey @Namecheap I am stuck in a login loop. I restored my iPhone recently and now I can't login via browser because I had One Touch enabled and can't login via iPhone app, it does not send any push notification.

    A big thank you to @Namecheap Tech Support. I accidentally deleted my personal website at 5pm and wasn’t backing it up but they managed to grab a server side back-up to restore my site. 58 minutes and I was back up and running. Crisis averted.

    When asked @Namecheap support about this, they replied "I have double-checked the question with our Technicians. Unfortunately, it is not possible to enable it on your Shared server." (sic)

  • jaserodley
    Jase Rodley (@jaserodley) reported

    @Namecheap I actually just spoke with chat support for about 45 minutes who offered to do it manually (as I can't wait - purchased domain needs to be transferred quickly). Waiting on a support ticket which I /hope/ is on it's way.

  • DamianRath

    @Namecheap I forgot to mention the added benefit of using a (Google) authenticator on your smartphone is that you don't need a cellular connection to be able to us it to login via your computer.

  • J_Dav1
    John Davis (@J_Dav1) reported

    @brunoborges @GoDaddy That's why I use namecheap. I've always liked their service better and it was cheaper for domain registrations than other options last I checked, hence the name I guess.

    I know its Saturday afternoon and the weather is good, but having to wait 37 minutes (& counting) for an email reply from customer service because NameCheap's system can't read my email of record? Seriously? It "can" when its renewal time. Not impressed. @NameCheapCEO @NameCheap

    @Namecheap Sites are not back up yet but I hope the issue is resolved. Folks, I know @ICANN policies aren't your fault, but I recommend you implement additional ways to follow up with customers about to be impacted by this. You have my phone number!

  • kg6hum
    Rob Campbell (@kg6hum) reported

    @TProphet @Namecheap @ICANN I just had the same issue with @enom and @Outlook. An @ICANN verification was triggered, but @Microsoft decided it was spam and blocked all the emails.

  • TProphet
    TProphet (@TProphet) reported

    So, @Namecheap solved #GDPR by giving free whoisguard to everyone. One problem: activating it triggers a verification process with @ICANN. Of course I never got any of the emails and now ALL of my domains are suspended, down hard.

    When I'm looking at my @namecheap account, it redirects to the knowledgebase search page about 80% of the time. Been doing it for years. Fix your website Namecheap.

    @GeekyRob @Namecheap I have to agree with everything that @GeekyRob has said! Two months plus later, and I too am getting the, 'Yeah, it's our Upstream provider's fault, but we have no ETA on a fix' and it's affecting my business also. You need to do better @Namecheap , seriously! #iusedtoloveyouonce
