Common Issues and the Solutions
There are a few issues that people face while attaching the custom domain to Namecheap
1. Getting the same error while clicking Save
It is a common problem. Just wait a few hours, but don’t close the windows. Even if you do, there is no harm. You just need to type your domain name, and click Save.
2. Website Not Opening
I am getting the below error right after when I clicked the Save button. It happens due to DNS propagation. Just wait a few hours until your ISP catches your new DNS of the domain. Sometimes it may take up to 24 hours.
3. Check DNS Prognation Status
