    Seems they've been really quick to suspend/shutdown domains lately.

    Anyone else notice this?

    For the last week yes. It seems to come in waves for me. My mailing is consistent but I'll get two weeks where more than half the sending domains are nulled and then it will go quiet for a month or so. It makes no difference if I switch to another account, the null warnings and then nulls continue for that wave. At least they give you a 48 hour notice and usually a day or so after the mailing - internet.bs will null me mid-send and then on occasions lock all the domains in that account.

    With Namecheap, it won't matter so much which TLD you use... For the past 16-18 months they have been null routing all domain names blacklisted by Haus. It doesn't appear to be automatic which is why it seems to happen in "waves". Unfortunately it seems to happen more on weekends and in the middle of the night when their offshore (the names always sound Russian) reps are working. The first few times they are more forgiving and allow you to fix the blacklisting before null routing your domain. However, once you break their tolerance level, they simply block your domain with no advance notice. If you frequently get DBLs, avoid Namecheap or clean your data or both.

    I actually started getting multiple domains shutdown after they did their 2cent domain promo. It was mostly xyz domains being shut down but now it's affecting even my aged domains (however my .coms are still going strong).

    Moniker.com doesn't null route you because of the listings.

    I process unsubscribes daily including manual requests, pull unknown user bounces and have data scrubbed daily by ImpressionWise but it doesn't stop DBLs - I thought they were just part and parcel of GI mailing?
