Hey thanks for this! NameCheap has since added some anti-bot stuff like an interstitial page and sometimes a CAPTCHA. I took this and added handling of the interstitial page, warning about the CAPTCHA (don't think I can solve that one), and put a simple docker+script around it to make it easy to clone and use. Works for me to get my Zone File now!
