Namecheap email and websites go down with under maintenance notice
The web hosting and domain name registrar Namecheap went offline with an unscheduled maintenance notice appearing on all pages of the website and online service. The email services offered by Namecheap were also reported to be offline.
@Namecheap I noticed your website says it's under maintenance, but Private e-mail is down too.
I've got clients to respond to but can' access e-mail.

It seems all Namecheap services were offline for quite some time under the unscheduled maintenance during peak-business hours.
I know that, of course I've already visited that page. I'm just asking why is the email service down? "We're currently undergoing maintenance to make your https://t.co/RaT1lFdRBW experience even better."
This does not answer my question. Not even an ETA, so something out of your

Many Namecheap customers were surprised at how long the downtime lasted.
Goes down at the worst of times! (When I need to access my domains)
