Is it just me or does NameCheap take forever to propogate new nameservers?

    This has happened on more than two occassions for me now. It is taking them a little over 28 hours to propegate. Its now been two days and still nothing :( Usually with other companies (GoDaddy) for some reason it is like within atleast 8 hours.

    Anyone else having a problem with this recently?:confused:

    Yeah, I have always used Godaddy for my domain names but the last one I bought I used Namecheap since it was like $4.95 and I had a little over $5 on my PayPal card. It took them forever for it to point properly to my server and my site. Are they decent otherwise b/c I need to register another domain and don't know if I should use them again?

    They seem decent with everything else, easy to use admin interface, etc. The only thing that sucks is the inability for them to propegate nameservers quickly. :(

    I have 20 some odd domains with Namecheap and have never noticed any undue lag in propagation.

    Me either, they are usually on par with Godaddy in terms of propagation time. I've switched 1,000s of Nameservers at both companies. I guess its just your location and the route the propagation path takes, or how busy the Nameservers were when you made the request.

    Are you even fully aware how DNS propagation goes? I've posted this before,
    but a registrar (or rather a reseller in Namecheap's case) is only one] factor in
    how soon a domain name will resolve to its intended destination (i.e. website).

    Without going into too much detail (and maybe causing information overload),
    how soon a domain name will resolve after its nameservers are changed pretty
    much depends on the following parties:

    1. How soon the registrar submits the DNS changes to the Registry.

    2. How soon the Registry submits the DNS changes to the 13 root servers w/c
    make up the backbone of the 'Net.

    3. How soon your ISP picks up the change and updates their DNS cache.

    If you do a WHOIS and it shows the correct nameservers, then the registrar
    has already done its part. I don't know what that response code you posted
    here means, that's something you'll have to ask Namecheap.

    If the DNS is correct yet you're still not seeing your site, clean your browser's
    cache or use a proxy to possibly view it. If using a proxy is too risky for you,
    ask someone in another area outside yours to see if they're able to view your
    site.

    If no one's able to see it, then troubleshoot its DNS. Don't be afraid to ask if
    you're not really familiar with it.

    I use namecheap exclusively and I have never had a problem with registering a new domain, setting up the hosting on my servers, and not having the site show up at once.

    All this in less than 5 minutes.

    And depending on the site and how quick I am to put something on it, a few minutes more and poof!
    My new domain is live and on the net.
