The internet has been hit by a mysterious global outage as sites like Fortnite, Delta Airlines, Amazon, AirBnb, BA and major banks are down.
ITV, Barclays and Skybet were among the pages that seemed to go down.
Sainsbury’s Bank, the Bank of Scotland, McDonald’s, Premiere Inn and John Lewis were other big names to be hit.
Downdetector reported problems on several websites just after 5pm in London.
It found tens of thousands of problems with sites in the capital, but it is believed to affect customers across the country.
Raw gamers took to social media to rage that they could no longer connect to the PlayStation Network.
Banks’ websites have also gone offline for a number of customers, including HSBC, Barclays, Lloyds Bank, Halifax, TSB, Tesco Bank and the Bank of Scotland.
Argos and John Lewis are among the stores also affected, but some users say they are back online.
A back-end service such as Amazon Web Services or a Content Delivery Network (CDN) may have failed, the Sun reports.
But the Independent claimed it was due to Akamai, a major content delivery network.
A spokesperson said: “We are aware of an emerging issue with the Edge DNS service.
“We are actively investigating the matter. If you have any questions or are experiencing this issue, please contact Akamai Technical Support.
“In the interest of time, we are providing you with the most current information available, which is subject to changes, corrections and updates.”
