Most likely what's happened is that the customer mis-typed one of the
nameserver IPs for the domain.  If it's just getting NXDOMAIN, then
"sometimes the site doesn't load right away."

If it comes up as "Someone just registered your domain through Namecheap,"
someone will notice.

If they're _all_ mistyped, the same thing holds.  "This stupid thing
doesn't work *wham wham wham*" versus "ZOMG who stole my domain?!"
