    Error with Domain Registration at NameCheap

    I received the following error after trying to registrar a domain with namecheap.

    [FAILED]
    Reason(if available):An unknown error occurred - 198367874
    The domain name was available and after getting the error message the domain showed that it was taken. But the whois is showing me as the registrant?

    I wondering what the issue is as the payment was refunded after getting the error message?

  2. Thanked by:

    I just received the following message:

    We would like to inform you that the domain has been registered by you. It was a bug in our system that it was not added to your namecheap account. Everything is fixed now.
    We apologize for such inconveniences.

    I registered the site from within my namecheap account.

    Namecheap from time to time has bugs. But the customer service responds quickly.
