I had email problems which could not get resolved. Their support said that people were spamming from my shared server, so my outbound emails were delayed 18 hours, or not sent out at all.

Customer service was slow and did not resolve my problem.

On the plus side, they are hosting on SSDs so server responses are fast. If you are going to use them, have your mail server hosted somewhere else.

After more than 3 years with Namecheap the only descriptive words about their service, professionalism, trust, and treatment of their clients are:
Terrible and horrible, disrespectful of clients and untrustworthy,
In short: UNSUSTAINABLE!!! I recommend: Be Careful! This is especially due to the tremendous waste of time in over 8 months. I have been suffering so much trying to regain my stolen account of very valuable domains, worth many thousands of Dollars which just disappeared, and Namecheap just claims I never owned it, The process of this theft began when an unauthorized someone was allowed to list herself as a 50% owner with 100% rights. Namecheap never notified me of this illegal ownership takeover. When I wasn't able to login, their Support and Risk Management personal, after weeks and months of ignoring my requests for help, informed me that they concluded that I don't own the account, with my domains, and also had the audacity to claim that I never owned it despite the [read more...]

Editorial Review

Services: Web HostingDomain RegistrationVPN ICANN registrar | Redirected domains: domainname.com web-hosting.com namecheaphosting.com ingichost.com hostingcs.com peoplehost.com hostingcorner.com

Ever since it was founded in 2000, Namecheap has continued to develop their system of services. Because of their dedication, they became an ICANN-accredited domain registrar (figuring with around 10 million domains that have been made ever since they started operating on the market). It is considered a top company due to the provided services, great support and security assurance.

Namecheap knows what is popular among customers and therefore, it offers highly-required services: shared web hosting full packages, SSL certificates, WhoisGuard privacy protection and they come with plan options for WordPress hosting, VPS hosting, Dedicated Servers, Shared hosting, Reseller hosting, private email hosting, Website Builder, or Domain Name Registration. Namecheap also provides customers with apps like Ecommerce marketplace or subscriptions which are useful tools in the management of your business. Their operating systems are protected through the latest firewalls.


Their hosting plans come with a massive number of managing tools that can help the customers get the right hosting experience. The prices they provide are highly competitive. Let's take, for instance, their shared web hosting services. These come with three available plans (Stellar, Stellar Plus, Stellar Business). The plans come highly equipped with various features and tools to help you manage your business and such a list of facilities always increases the number of customers. A few of the available features are the following: backups (twice a week); unmetered bandwidth; unlimited parked domains; Webmail; SPF; SMTP, POP3, IMAP; PHPMyAdmin; Virus Scanner; Google Apps; Resource Usage; Google Analytics Compatible; Softaculous Script Installer, and so on. The prices for these shared hosting options start from $2.88/month. This is slightly higher than the prices offered by HostGator or GoDaddy, but are lower than the ones offered by BlueHost or GreenGeeks.

The Reseller hosting plans are available through three packages. Compared to HostGator or GreenGeeks, Namecheap comes with a cheaper offer. As mentioned before, their prices are very competitive on the market and affordable for customers. Features available through this service are: unmetered bandwidth, 14-day money-back guarantee, unlimited subdomains.

The Dedicated Servers own a motherboard that varies from Dell PowerEdge R230 with Intel C236 Chipset to Supermicro X11SSD-F. These servers can only be refunded within 7 days from the purchase of the plan.

There are also several disadvantages to this company. For instance, even if they offer one free SSL certificate, this only lasts for one year. After that, the customer has to pay. There are several complaints regarding their slow load page. This could decrease the number of potential customers to choose their options.

Price & Cost


Money-back guarantee after 30 days from the purchase of a product! However, one inconvenience at Namecheap could be related to their refund policy, as they do not give your money for purchases like add-ons (server management or dedicated IPs). Then, the number of days in which you can get a refund is generally 30. Nevertheless, this varies in the case of several products. If you choose a plan from the Reseller solutions, you can get a refund within 14 days from the purchase. If you choose from their list of Dedicated Servers, you only have 7 days to decide whether you like the product or not. This could end up confusing customers and taking into consideration other companies that do not have a similar policy, Namecheap could lose some of its customers.

VPS hosting options come with RAID 10 protection and a 14-day money-back guarantee. Their servers are equipped with solid state drives storage which is usually sought by customers.

Reliability


Namecheap guarantees 99.9% uptime with full redundancy.

Data Center


The datacenters used are located in the USA and the United Kingdom (based in the Timico’s datacenter close to Nottingham, in the Midlands).
VPS and Dedicated servers are located in the PhoenixNAP datacenter (Phoenix, Arizona, USA).

Customer Support


Namecheap has great customer support services and good knowledgebase. They offer support through email, tickets or live chat. A slight inconvenience here would be the fact that they do not offer help through phone.

Control Panel


cPanel Control Panel is used by Namecheap which provides the customers with a user-friendly control board.

Conclusion

Namecheap is an internationally well-known company that offers good pricing and great advantages with their hosting solutions. However, the way customers get a refund might be confusing, as it could vary from one product to another. Their support system is good, except the fact that they do not offer support by phone. Problems with the load speed have been registered, and such complaints from customers always discourage customers considering Namecheap as a solution to their needs.
Nevertheless, Namecheap is a great company overall. It has a very compact set of features that can attract customers and, what is more, they put a lot of effort into maintaining performance, support and great services.

Namecheap screwed us over royally. We decided to transfer our hosting from AWS to namecheap but before we did it we emailed them telling them do not: 1. crash the site 2. do not make it live till everything was working. The nightmare starts there.

Bear in mind we have an investor meeting with a major silicon valley VC firm in 2 days. We also have over 400 customers. I continue...

At 4am (almost 2 days after the "migration" started by them) they told us it was all done thanks for choosing namecheap. It wasn't done. Not even close. SSL wasn't there, URLs were all wrong, our dashboard wasn't appearing. So I started chatting with them. At 12pm nothing was fixed. Even after 3 chats and them telling me it was done.

At noon - they fixed our SSL. 1 hour later, it was gone again. All our internal URLs were broken and they told me "its ok, its just because the domain is still catching up, it will only take 2 more hours." At 5pm nothing was better and I was getting tired after all I [read more...]

The whole incident illustrated:

1. How poor at communication your team is.
2. How broken your backend systems are

Your system clearly showed a domain as available for registration, so I attempted to do so. For over 24 hours it sat in processing - despite having successfully billed my credit card. I reached out trying to get clarification, and got no response.

The registration then was canceled, but without any explanation or contact from you. Not knowing why, I simply registered again. This second registration was then canceled. I finally was able to get in contact with someone, but they seemed more concerned with explaining why this happened than empathizing with how poor of a customer experience this is.

I understand that you cannot sell a domain that is not available. I get that. But, what I do NOT get is why your system seems to not have any idea what domains are available or not. This leaves me with zero confidence that even something as simple as renewing my [read more...]

Namecheap is the last domain name registrar you ever want to deal with. I bought two domains from them and didn't even use them for a week. They blocked my account. I had not even started building my site. I complained to them and they said they will get back to me. Till date, they have never replied me. be careful dealing with them. They suspend accounts as they like without notice and explanation. It was my first time buying from them and I will never buy from them again. Please don't ignore my review. Consider other providers than namecheap

Namecheap is a nightmare
Namecheap is a nightmare. Cheap yes but they dropped 3 of our domains with out warning. Admit full responsibility , losses in the thousands, costs in the thousands and when i complain i get a link sent to me!!! They actually sent me a link...no sorry, no hey we will make it up to you, a link! Terms and conditions. Basically it is my problem!

They made some changes to their servers, they failed to warn me, failed to advise and when i wrote to the CIO Matthew Russell:

"Please note that use of our service is governed by our Terms and Conditions and Acceptable Use Policy. Full terms can be found at https://www.namecheap.com/legal.aspx"

Its in the name - you get what you pay for. Be warned, if you are looking for hosting avoid this company as best you can.

Do not sign up with this CRAP
I have used and also currently using several hosting companies, experience with the Namecheap is worst of all. I use reseller plan and host 6 websites.
Their servers are down almost daily for 30 min or more, maximum downtime has been more than 24 hours!!!
Their 99% uptime guarantee is total BS. If needed I can and will provide proof.
Once again - Namecheap hosting service is not worth your time or money - just DO NOT use this crap

Worst Hosting Company Ever. Decent registrar
Namecheap's hosting services are the worst I've experienced in 15 years. Their email hosting is just CONSTANTLY down, or essentially incapacitated even when "up" do to runaway server scripting that they fail to deal with on a continous basis. I'm giving up and switching, even with remaining paid for subscription time. THIS IS THE WORST level of support. Virtually anyone can do better. Absolutely constantly down. Awful, Awful, Awful. DROP bad dead awful.

In comparison, the company does just fine as a registrar and nameserver for domain name registration and name service. But their hosting is just piss poor bad.

Namecheap has locked several of my accounts with the catch phrase 'we detected fraud'. When I asked then what the fraud was, they said 'none of your business, just send us your scanned passport'.

I have since started moving all my domains (about 125 of them) from different Namecheap accounts, as they expire, to another registrar.

If you decide to use Namecheap, be aware that they lock accounts randomly for no reason at all, just to get your ID. I don't know why, but this is their methods. I believe they get brownie points from government agencies for volunteering information to them. Same like Paypal and Google does.

Their random 'account locking' algorithm is only one step above Paypals'.

When they lock your account, sometime in the future, for no reason at all, just to get your id, you will member this post!

namecheap.com are thiefs
The bad story for me started last month, on 4 august i succesfully transferred my domain (eg: www.s-article.com) from some registrar to namecheap.com (did this so i can manage the dns servers from there). I've also buyed hosting package from namecheap.com and for a time things went fine. Some weeks later i decided to upgrade my hosting account to a VPS and after i had several talks with namecheap.com support team i've made the order. Things didn't happened as we discussed and my site went down so i decided to move it to another hosting and since i wasn't able to use the VPS from namecheap.com at all, due to their technical problems, so i requested my money back.

From this point things started to be very ugly, short story is that i received my money back but namecheap.com banned my account and also removed the dns servers which i've set for s-article.com and the very bad part namecheap.com simple changed the owner of my domain and is not me anymore is them. I never gave them the [read more...]

NameCheap is a Great Service
I've seen quite a few negative reviews of NameCheap around the Internet, so I just wanted to leave my mark here and tell you what I think of it.

I've been using NameCheap as a domain manager for almost two years now. In addition, they've been my exclusive web host for the past year, and it's been great.

I currently employ their Pro package for hosting a number of websites, ranging in traffic, and have never had issues with disk space or bandwidth due to their high limits. In addition, I have not experienced any notable downtime (outside of some temporary maintenance) in the year that I've been a customer.

I've been with Luckyregister for over 3 years and Godaddy served me well. I just wanted to give it a shot with NameCheap.com. Long story short. I registered 2 domains with them. next day found out something about trademark problem. I quickly went online and try to contact them. Surprisingly there's not phone # to call. There's only Live Chat and E-mail. Live Chat waiting over 15 mins to get a person response to my question.

I told them my situation and they said they unable to refund the money. They only refund to my name cheap account. This is rediculous. LuckyRegister and Godaddy always refund me when i made a mistake with the domain within 5 days no questions ask.

Name cheap is very unprofessional in the field. They seems like a 1 person running and nice website layout to fool unsuspecious customers. They can't even afford phone support. They will charge you $0.99 for each refund to accound with them not to your credit card. This mean, you can only use the [read more...]

This is email from them

Dear Pham,

To my great regret I must inform you that there was an error in our system so your order was not successful and the domain names in question failed to be registered with us, $17.62 were refunded to your Namecheap account. Today when we were going to proceed with the registrations of the domain names we were unhappy to find out that today those domain names were registered [read more...]
