    Hi all,

    I've been trying to register a domain for the past couple of hours. All is good until the final stages. Anyone else having issues registering domains?

    I'm thinking it's possibly due to the DDOS from earlier.

    Yeah, that's what I'm thinking. HG is having some issues too.

    Something tells me that we're seeing now is just the tip of the iceberg.

    Heh, yeah it's been a little while. All is well though, just keeping the projects going one at a time--you know how it is. How's things on your side?

    Yeah, I can practically go through the whole registering process, except for when it comes to finalizing the registration.

    Ahh.. Yeah, it's easy to get comfortable once you start to see the monkeys in papal. The toughest part is staying hungry for more lol.

    I tried registering a xyz domain & I can't get past the domain availability page. No matter what I type in, it always says: "This domain is not available". Something is messed up for sure.

    Take a look at this: https://status.namecheap.com/archives/28394

    Ahh. Great find. I wonder if that's just them covering up any issues.
