Cloudflare is a leading CDN network solution platform that provides protection, performance and speed to over 15 million websites. It went down today, on June 21st, 2022. Reason for down is yet unidentified.
It is learnt that the outage was caused by high usage of the software that runs Cloudflare’s systems. Users have also reported that Amazon Web Services (AWS), Dynadot, and some other leading IT companies are also down.

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

i feel like a cracked record at this point, but cloudflare being a single point of failure is absolutely not a good thing.
but hosting a site without cloudflare is basically suicide.
in other words, this internet thing is doomed.
