Due to the shutdown of Cloudflare's service, many users are seeing the message of 500 internal server errors. This happens when there is a problem with a web service. Due to problems in the service of this content delivery network, users are not able to access many websites like Medium.com, Zerodha, Groww, Upstox, and Discord.
Why are websites not working?
The company said, 'A 500 error is visible due to the downing of Cloudflare sites in the affected region. Due to this incident, all the data plane service in our network has been affected. All these websites work on Cloudflare network infrastructure. The company says that they are investigating the matter. Cloudflare has reported that the problem has been discovered and is being fixed.
Service was stopped earlier
The websites or apps that have been affected due to this outage have also informed their users about the start of the service soon. This is the second case in the last week when a Cloudflare outage has been observed. Earlier the outage was limited to the Indian region, due to which many users were finding it difficult to use multiple services.

Cloudflare has not yet clearly stated the reason for the problem. The service of these apps has gone live after being stalled for a few hours.
