Websites down across globe: Which region was affected by cloudflare outage?
Many websites have stopped working properly amid a major internet outage.
The problems appeared to be the result of issues at Cloudflare, an internet infrastructure provider that powers much of the web.
Many sites rely on the company’s tools to actually serve their information and media to users, meaning that the problems at Cloudflare rapidly hit other, apparently unconnected, sites.
People visiting those sites saw error messages instead of the usual pages. “Eyeballs attempting to reach Cloudflare sites in impacted regions will observe 500 errors,” the company said on its website.
Soon after announcing the problem, Cloudflare said it had found the source of the issue and was implementing a fix. It then said the fix was in place and it was “monitoring” for any further issues.
At just after 9am UK time, it said that the incident was considered “resolved” and that the problems should be fixed.
It did not give any information on how the problems had come about, or what had fixed them.
