    @DomainerABhi Hi, totally understand how frustrating that can be. Please shoot us an email to support[at]namecheap[dot]com, we'll make sure to investigate the issue and provide possible solutions

    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

    @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.

    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.

    @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.

    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

    Hey, @Namecheap. You're disappointing me here. You're letting one of my contacts down by claiming an absolutely obvious phish isn't a phish.

    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.

    I made a @Namecheap account, bought a couple domains, and now they’re spamming my email with shit 🙁 They’re cheap, but spam isn’t worth it. There are other cheap registrars out there.

    @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://

    Jan de Rijcke (@RijckeJan) reported

    @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.

    @Namecheap @bad_packets Always the same thing. "not my problem" "not my responsibility" But if NameCheaps CEO's Credit card was on the vic list. I bet this DNS would be nuked. Do the right thing for once!

    If you are blind and need Web-hosting services, DO NOT go with @Namecheap! I cannot believe how hard it is to simply change a password for an email account! Especially since u need your @Namecheap password to do it! No phone support, either.
