At Least 28,000 Websites Down On Major DNS Failure​

by Tyler Durden
Thursday, Jul 22, 2021 - 12:14 PM
At least 28,000 websites are down worldwide. There appears to be a major DNS, or Domain Name System failure that began shortly after 1100ET. DNS acts as the phone directory of the internet, translating names of websites into IP addresses.

Some of the major websites experiencing issues and outages include PlayStation Network, Fidelity, FedEx, Steam, UPS, Airbnb, Home Depot, and Amazon, according to Downdector.

It wasn't a DNS failure per se, Akamai shit the bed again. Their DNS resolver either fell over or someone shot it in the head. So while the errors and faults appeared to be a failure of the "internet phone book", it was Akamai unable to read the phone book that caused this.
