    I like their services as Registrars, but never thought of getting a VPS from them.

    Yeah I'd only use Namecheap to register domains, plenty of other VPS hosts out there

    Thanks for the heads-up buddy. I only use Namecheap as domain registrar - what about their shared hosting? I still think many hosting providers in the BST are way better though.

    seriously they are sad when it comes to hosting, I had a massive outage last month on their VPS, moved my sites to Grid Hosting and never had any more problems.

    I used NC VPS and was paying around $140 for one site and when i move it to host-stage, the technical team slashed it and i was able to pay just $50 for the same site. Namecheap is not good for hosting, but they are the best when it comes to domain registrar.

    Also stay away from BurstNet...I've never had as bad of an experience w/ any other company for any other service as I did w/ those guys. Double billed, excessive downtime on my VPS, and then treated like shit by the staff when trying to resolve the issues. They proceeded to terminate my account after double billing me for a service I wasn't able to use.
