    Namecheap DNS problems...

    I recently bought a VPS so had to change the nameservers on a few of my domains. How long does it usually take for them to change? It says 24 hours max on the Namecheap site, but it's been longer than that...and their support isn't much help as they haven't replied.

    What exactly isn't working in your domain? Website? Email?

    This could be caused by your ISP, caching DNS lookup results. You can try to access your domain through a proxy; most probably you'll see a new site.

    DNS propagation nowadays is almost instant (~2 seconds max) and problems like yours are caused mostly by your local ISP.

    I found out what's wrong, totally my fault. I had to create seperate accounts for each domain. (I'm such a n00b )

    You had to do WHAT?

    Of course, you can keep each and every your domain in a separate account, but I can't clearly see WHY. I keep all my NameCheap's domains in one account and all of them are working just perfectly...

    Frankly, I can't understand how keeping your domains in separate accounts will help to solve your DNS problem.

    lapsaj, I don't undestand why you want to have your domain names on different accounts. You may have all your domain names on one and the same account. Just all depends on your package plan (I mean how many domains you may have on one account). Check up your package plan.

    If you're using any of namecheap's services (e.g. forwarding) and you're experiencing
    problems, have you taken it up with them before posting here? Any result/s?

    they are just an en om reseller. They are using enom's DNS services. if you are having a problem it may be with enom's DNS although I use it too and do not have an issue

    I understand OP uses his own DNS.

    I suspect the OP probably meant that they had to create separate accounts in their VPS control panel (establish accounts for domains being directed there). At least I hope that's what they meant.

    Angry

    have been able to confirm this problem,

    transferred a domain which was not working to my second account with ALL details suppose to be in tact, the DNS turned out to STILL be namecheaps dns servers.

    Sorted itself out with push of the domain.

    Very strange... taking it out with namecheap but im expecting it to take its time... like the rest of their services.

    If only enom offered personal services....

    I still can't get the essence of the problem...

    LinuxExpress, when you transfer, usually all the details (incl. DNS) remain the same. If you used NameCheap's DNS and you've transferred away from them, how can you imagine their DNS still serving your domain? BTW, as far as I understand, this is not what OP asked about.

    So why are you calling them 'NameCheap's'?
