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.

Shortly after the problem was reported, Cloudflare confirmed the outage in a statement released on its Twitter handle.

“The Cloudflare team is aware of the current service issues and is working to resolve them as quickly as possible,” it said, adding, “the issue has been identified and a fix is being implemented.”

“A critical P0 incident was declared at approximately 06:34 AM UTC (11:57 am PST). Connectivity in Cloudflare’s network has been disrupted in broad regions,” the statement added.

“The incident impacted all data plane services in our network,” it added.

The company assured that a fix has been implemented; however, “we are monitoring the results.”

 

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