Cloudflare outage has knocked the popular services offline globally!
As reported, Cloudflare — a DNS service — experienced a global outage on Tuesday.
The outage affected a large number of services including FTX, Discord, Omegle, DoorDash, Crunchyroll, NordVPN, and Feedly.
Meanwhile, the internet infrastructure firm is reported to have resolved the issue roughly an hour after users began facing issues accessing some popular sites including Zerodha, Medium.com, news outlet Register, Groww, Buffer, iSpirt, Upstox, and Social Blade.
Millions of internet users globally were unable to access several websites and flock to Twitter to share their concerns.
The customers attempting to reach Cloudflare sites in impacted regions observed 500 errors.
Large chunks of the internet are returning an nginx 500 Internal Server Error right now (I'm assuming something's messed up at Cloudflare or similar) but this is definitely my favourite pic.twitter.com/cK5x49ZLiR— Neil Studd (@neilstudd) June 21, 2022

It is worth mentioning that Cloudflare is the most popular content delivery network by some margin.
