    I'm not sure what's going on, but I was trying to go on to namecheap.com to take advantage of a few of their deals and I just cannot get the site to load. When it does load after 50 seconds, it freezes on every click.

    I assume that they are getting tons of traffic from their promotions and the servers aren't holding the weight. I don't know anything about servers so I could very easily be wrong.

    It's kinda funny that I'm about to buy hosting from a website whose own servers let them down. It's cheap, and I have bitcoin to waste so I'll still buy from them.

    Site was fine when the hosting deal was on, but went out when the domain deal started.
    Oh well.

    I wanted to take advantage of the domain deals and maybe throw a hosting package or two in there.

    I chose them over godaddy and hostgator because I could use bitcoin but it seems like I'll miss the whole deal anyways.

    I also wanted to buy a domain, but page never loaded.

    I Just grabbed next 'web hosting' offer. They are also offering free .website domain with web hosting plan, but in hurry I couldn't get any.

    So as i see now- these deals are limited. I thought they'd be available for everyone for a limited duration of time. They are literally selling out within minutes. The only way is to have your order ready in the cart and checkout asap once the order kicks in.

    I tried Namecheap hosting business package, and site was down several times, I moved.

    I didn't have problem with shared hosting though.
