Amazing experience trying to activate an SSL cert with NameCheap:
1) It's undocumented but the CA can't activate a cert unless the domain is pointing towards an IP address (really? why? it's undocumented but apparently that's the case)
2) For DNS verification NameCheap appends the domain to the host value, but you're not supposed to include it so they add it automatically. Undocumented/broken functionality again.

On top of the process already being tedious and horrible. Wow!
