Internet Outage: ‘Error 503’! A major blow to the world’s Internet services, multiple websites reopened after a long shutdown …
The Error 503 message is displayed as soon as you open some popular and widely used websites. The list includes popular international websites around the world, such as the New York Times, BBC News, the Financial Times, and The Guardian.
On Tuesday, Internet Outage suddenly shut down the websites of several important organizations, including several global news organizations. The message on the front page of all these websites was ‘Error 503.’ The problem started around 3.30 pm Indian time. After a long shutdown, the websites reopened after 5:30 p.m.
It is seen that instead of opening the homepage, the Error 503 message is shown whenever one goes to open some popular and widely used websites including well-known international news agencies. The list includes popular international websites around the world, such as the New York Times, BBC News, the Financial Times, and The Guardian. Websites of companies like Amazon and Reddit Spotify were also closed for a long time. In a word, a large part of the entire internet service has been crippled.
In fact, the 503 Service Available message means that the server of the respective website is unable to open the page according to the customer’s choice. This type of problem usually occurs due to mechanical reasons, many times this problem also occurs due to overloading. Although it is not clear exactly why more than one website has not been opened for a long time. Whether the hackers are involved in the incident is also being investigated.
However, many people think that the American ‘cloud computing service’ has a flaw. As a result, this has had an impact on websites. The cloud computing service provider called ‘Fastly’ said they were looking into the matter. This information has been reported on their website. The websites that the company serves are thought to have been damaged. There was no immediate comment from Amazon. 21,000 Reddit users have reported problems on social media. On the other hand, according to a report published in the US news portal TechCrunch, the services of these news organizations around the world have been suspended due to the problems of the content delivery network providers. That is what has been claimed.
