That's all I can see. If every employees grant the permission to transfer company's money by themselves, what would happen ? All companies' workers just doing their job. I don't see any reason to pick a fight on them. Especially for just 10 - 20 dollars. Waste of your own time. Please be claim and reasonable for your own good.

I've been a registrar customer of theirs for many years and have only a few complaints (such as their redirector services often don't work correctly), however the hosting is another matter entirely. Recently they have been down more often then any other hosting company I've EVER used and fortunately, I pay monthly so once this month expires, I will be moving EVERYTHING to <a href="https://www.hostingsthatsuck.com/go/hostgator.php?a=namecheap" rel="nofollow">Hostgator</a>. They are obviously outsourcing or reselling someone else's hosting and they have little to NO control over the uptime. The service is TERRIBLE, they have cost me money by being down for long lengths of time and they provide NO warning about maintenance or downtime. They have lost my business for sure.

I do not recommed using namecheap. 1. They have questionable billing practices. They charged me twice for the same domain transfer. And when I asked for a refund, they asked for a fee. 2. Their technical support is pretty inadequate. On a DNS management query, they removed nameservers without notification causing significant decline to traffic. When asked to speak to website owner, they said he is travelling. I have not heard from namecheap apparently the owner is still travelling after two months. I notified BBB, they did not respond to them as well. 3. The cost is comparable to other service providers. Bottomline, given their questionable billing practices, inadequate customer support, I think they are poor value for money. I have since switched to another provider after using namecheap for two months. I had really bad experience with Namecheap. I do not recommed using namecheap.

It's not something you're apt to think about. If you run into a bad experience, you may shout it to the skies, so that also affects the proportions even further. In any case, I've ordered a number of services from Namecheap in recent months. They were always professional in handling the transactions and providing support. What more can you ask?
