    Being overseas I haven't dealt with namecheap, but a few friends a couple of years ago started using them as a cheaper alternative and I don't recall them having any problems with their hosting..

    Read some horror stories about a person who bought server from Namecheap. It wasn't delivered on time and ended up on a refund. I would recommend a specialist hosting providers for your hosting needs.

    I use them as a registrar and am happy, I am sure their hosting is good. They are based out of Los Angeles, California and have good support.

    Yes, I have a namecheap hosting account and I don't have any particular complaints about them. They seem to be pretty good overall the only thing i don't like is that they only allow up to 25 domains per hosting account including subdomains, but if thats not an issue for you i'd say go for it!

    I forgot to mention not to register a domain through them if you plan to forward it. There domain forwarding is quirky i find, only working like half the time either taking forever to forward to the target page or not forwarding at all and giving a time out error.
