Websites of several airlines, banks and tech companies, including Delta Air Lines, Costco Wholesale Corporation and American Express, faced a downturn on Thursday.
This is the third such incident in just two months after multiple outages on social media, government and news websites around the world in June, a US-based cloud computing service. There are also reports pointing out bugs in provider Fastly.
Cloud service provider Akamai Technologies has issued a warning about an incident in the “Edge DNS” service, noting a “partial outage” of its website and investigating the issue.
“We are aware of new issues with Edge DNS services,” he said on the company’s website.
According to the outage tracking website Downdetector, user reports reported 4,000 issues on Airbnb’s website, with approximately 1,800 Home Depot users reporting issues.
The website did not load and I received a Domain Name System (DNS) service error.
DNS or Domain Name System is a service that translates a readable domain name into a machine-readable IP address, connects to a server, and delivers the requested page to the user’s phone or laptop.
