On Tuesday, several popular websites were unavailable due to a widespread outage reported by Cloudflare, an American content delivery network.
The DNS service, said in a statement that its team was aware of the issues and was working “to resolve as quickly as possible”.
Cloudflare recently announced in an update that it had resolved a widespread outage that impacted a range of services earlier in the day, including FTX, Discord, Omegle, DoorDash, Crunchyroll, NordVPN, and Feedly.
