We have tried pinging Namecheap website using our server and the website returned the above results. If namecheap.com is down for us too there is nothing you can do except waiting. Probably the server is overloaded, down or unreachable because of a network problem, outage or a website maintenance is in progress...

Can't Access Namecheap - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

namecheap appears to have beend own for days now, so we can't renew our domain. Kind of terrible customer service to leave everyone in the lurch with no back up or way to remedy the problem. I havent' been able to get on the site since Sunday.

Namecheap has a bad software issue transfers are not going as the final email will never reach you, they are aware of this but they can't solve it. I am losing a couple of domains because their upstream server is down

They are having another DDoS attack and ALL of their DNS servers are down none of our company domains are resolving right now and their support is useless as always. STAY AWAY!

was trying to register a domain, and then it simply went down. Can't get back, so it's not working for anyone right now I guess.
