If you click on a link or type a domain name in your browser and come across an errored page, this is normal. A global blackout affects the Internet network on Tuesday, June 8, 2021, and affects leading websites, both merchant sites, as well as public service, media and social network sites.
The list of sites affected by the blackout that hits the global Internet on Tuesday, June 8, 2021 is obviously impossible to keep up to date, since it evolves at full speed, but you will easily discover for yourself that such or such site that you are accustomed to consulting, or that you precisely wanted to consult exceptionally, does not answer more to your requests.
A global Internet failure, the origin of which is unknown
The failure is serious enough, since the impacted websites are not really completely inaccessible: you do not even land on a page informing of a failure. Your browser simply cannot access the site or page you are looking for, and displays an “Error 503 Connection failure” error message.
At the time we publish this article, Tuesday June 8 at 12:40 p.m. (article which will be regularly updated if needed and additional information), the list was growing, and the reasons for this failure were not known.
UPDATE 12:55 PM: Fastly, a “content delivery network”, or network of distribution of contents would be at the origin of the failure. Its teams are working to correct it. Your search queries, or the links you click, may go through several different “CDNs”, but if you come across the one that is unavailable, your query will not be redirected to another provider, and you will get an error message. on the screen….
UPDATE 1:30 p.m .: The outage appears to be resolved. The inaccessible sites are gradually back online, but disruptions may remain.
