    You would think that the namecheap forwarding would be faster and more reliable, but in fact I have found it flaky at times. Don't get me wrong, namecheap is an awesome company and a rock solid registrar, but I've had issues with their url forwarding. Maybe go with your hosting to do the forward.

    I moved the domain to hosting in steadfast.com and the traffic almost double herself. so namecheap maby very good for registering domains but don't use the free DNS fo redirect URL
