Additional Service Details
  • If your domain name’s expiration date is less than a year away, our system will synchronize PremiumDNS service to expire on the same date as your domain name.

  • If your domain name’s expiration date is more than a year away, our system will synchronize PremiumDNS service to expire on the same date as your domain name and prorate the cost of PremiumDNS accordingly. To align with your domain name, the prorated cost will apply for one year plus the appropriate number of months.

  • If you switch from another third-party DNS provider to PremiumDNS, the existing DNS records with that third party DNS provider will not automatically transfer over to Premium DNS, which may result in downtime for your domain name. You will need to manually add any existing DNS records to PremiumDNS after switching from a third party DNS provider to PremiumDNS.

  • Premium DNS will not be offered during domain name transfers.

  • Namecheap reserves the right to deny PremiumDNS service to any user without explanation.

  • DNSSEC is only available for TLDs that support DNSSEC.
