Great interruption of the website due to Cloudflare problems

Several websites around the world were inaccessible today due to network performance issues in Cloudflare.

Attempting to access websites hosted behind Cloudflare, including MyBroadband and Takealot, resulted in a "Connection timeout" error.

Cloudflare posted an update to its status page indicating that it was observing network performance issues.

The DownDetector interruption map showed an increase in problem reports with Cloudflare, and the company's support staff confirmed the presence of network problems.

"We are currently aware of the problems in network connectivity and our network operations team is committed to restoring services," the company said. "We will keep you informed as soon as we receive updates."

This problem has already been fixed for certain users, although it is not clear when services will be restored for all users.
