Cloudflare Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • TheRealArity ARITY™ (@TheRealArity) reported

    This is similar to @Cloudflare ‘s DDOS protection page which requires that the client wait a few seconds before being connected to the service. All of this while also functioning as a way to mine $Viat at the same time. #AritySmart

  • Open_Critic OpenCritic (@Open_Critic) reported

    @TheKhan912 We're looking into this. We're having an issue with Cloudflare and have been working with their support team to sort it out.

  • CloudflareHelp Cloudflare Help (@CloudflareHelp) reported

    @BALLETNEWS @domjhUK @Yank Account-specific advice requires a ticket to be opened, but generally if you trust the service you can add their IP address in the Trust IP List in Cloudflare section of your Siteground cPanel. You can also see which email address your Cloudflare account is registered to there.

  • CloudflareHelp Cloudflare Help (@CloudflareHelp) reported

    @Chris_Townsend Sorry about that. Can you send the original email including the headers to support(at)Cloudflare(dot)com. We’ll get this fixed.

  • CloudflareHelp Cloudflare Help (@CloudflareHelp) reported

    @kasey__moore Please open a support ticket by sending an email to support(at)Cloudflare(dot)com using the email address registered with your CLoudflare account.


    @XB36Hazard @DavidValderas4 @XB36Hazards please fix your website put some damn protection on it such as cloudflare or something this is complete bs dude always 503 error shit

  • 6h4n3m Ghanem (@6h4n3m) reported

    @joey_shea @netblocks @facebook @Twitter They're also disrupting 3rd party DNS services, I've tried those so far: Cloudflare, Google, OpenDNS and Quad9. Service is patchy as best, works for a hour or two then fails to resolve any addresses... I have to use the ISP provided services to have a stable connection.

  • hncynic hncynic bot (@hncynic) reported

    Title: Cloudflare to fight bots by tarpitting and taking down their servers 💬: This is a big problem on AWS. I don't see the point of cloud bots here. Cloudfront/Linode will eventually solve the problem if they start offering bots at every site with all kinds of features…

  • zackbloom Zack Bloom (@zackbloom) reported

    Obviously we (@Cloudflare) run a giant proxy network, but getting URLs to assets in GitHub requires a few API back-and-forths, it's not a single request.

  • th3_cr0wl3r Julian (@th3_cr0wl3r) reported

    @Cloudflare @jgrahamc @eastdakota @jgrahamc Still no u2f / webauthn support

  • bidikov Владислав Бидиков (@bidikov) reported

    @adspedia @Cloudflare @mahtin @jgrahamc @eastdakota Some magic is needed now... looks like we are missing some cool option to try out the service if it does not cost one kidney per month since we see several extreme attacks here i MK space...

  • PatrickSocha Patrick Socha (@PatrickSocha) reported

    @jgrahamc @Cloudflare Connection would hang until timeout. When swapping out for the original server IP in hosts we had no issues. No doubt our crawler wasn't engineered too well and was caught up. Happy to discuss further. Again think CF for most part is doing good job, but this needs some attention.

  • PatrickSocha Patrick Socha (@PatrickSocha) reported

    @jgrahamc @Cloudflare Crawler was being sink-holed. Ultimately we had to ignore those sites, which meant we couldn't accurately tell users what was happening in their city. Realise this isn't a support thread, but more an ask to please consider genuine bots, or some sort of process for genuine use :-)

  • PatrickSocha Patrick Socha (@PatrickSocha) reported

    @jgrahamc @Cloudflare There is the argument of customers, yes, but we were building a genuine product not all disimilar to Google Maps->'whats on near me'. This *seriously* slowed our MVP down, and this is what I mean by there *really* needs to be a review process for genuine apps/unis/researchers

  • jgrahamc John Graham-Cumming (@jgrahamc) reported

    @PatrickSocha @Cloudflare Cloudflare works for our customers to protect them and so they've put their trust in us to make that determination. Equally, given our mission of helping build a better Internet we have to figure our what's good and what isn't. Most bad bots are obviously bad...

  • PatrickSocha Patrick Socha (@PatrickSocha) reported

    @jgrahamc @Cloudflare To be clear, CF for the most part does a good job 👏. I see issues where by genuine engineers or researchers may have a legitimate reason to crawl/augment data, but is blocked due to CF. I understand argument that Google is 'good', who is CF to decide if I start a [..]

  • eastdakota Matthew Prince 🌥 (@eastdakota) reported

    @leothelion96 @jgrahamc All in good time. Test first. Work out any bugs. Then deploy the full power and scale of @Cloudflare’s network to end malicious bots once and for all.

  • HexstreamSoft Jean-Philippe Paradis (@HexstreamSoft) reported

    @Cloudflare @jgrahamc "Note: Defeating Bots may affect some actions on your website and/or non-automated traffic. For example, it may block access to your APIs and prevent access from mobile applications." sounds a bit scary, I think I'll pass for now... (I guess having analytics for this would help.)

  • mlcuration Es Kierkegaard (@mlcuration) reported

    I don't know why I used Hostgator, Cloudflare, AND GoDaddy to host domain names. Wtf. And I only have 3 domains.

  • chrismunns chrismunns (@chrismunns) reported

    @jon_raRaRa @einaregilsson @awscloud im sorry im not as familiar with Cloudflare's pricing and can't find clarity on their site. no matter the CDN you are paying for the egress from their network/PoPs to your customers and you'll typically always be paying for origin storage. I don't know how well they compare

  • RaJMJ86 ᴿᵃᴶᴹᴶ⁸⁶ (@RaJMJ86) reported

    @Cloudflare @Cloudflare I signed up but I don't want to **** up my current dns settings

  • skynebula Jérémie Fontana (@skynebula) reported

    But it’s not a surprise to see such bullshit coming from an organization funded by the worst of the worst : - Google - Facebook - Amazon - Microsoft - Cloudflare - Verizon …

  • NetworkChimp Network Chimp (@NetworkChimp) reported

    Cloudflare blocks or challenges bad requests from hitting my website. #cloudflare

  • hankchizljaw Andy Bell (@hankchizljaw) reported

    @erikkroes @NotionHQ @Cloudflare it never ends. i just can't help it.

  • libel_vox 𝕞𝕒𝕥𝕥𝕙𝕖𝕨 𝕣𝕖𝕚𝕟𝕓𝕠𝕝𝕕 (@libel_vox) reported

    @dret Thanks for the mention. Yes, there's some dns issues between the static site and Cloudflare I haven't take the time to resolve. At some point I need to do that.

  • Sairenix ☾∘∙⊱ Sai (@Sairenix) reported

    @Mrgw98 @Nightmare_x30 @Tericius @TheMemeArmy @VRChat_Status VrChat has the highest playercount since the big hype, if anything it's constantly growing, look at the steamstats. It's easy to talk shit when you don't know how hard it is to balance out a service that doesn't actively earn money and relies on ddos protection from cloudflare.

  • LiquorVicar Andy Clyde (@LiquorVicar) reported

    @titouangalopin @symfony Seems to be back now. Sorry, didn't grab a screenshot while it was down but said something like "DNS Origin Error". Cloudflare status page didn't show any obvious outage...

  • Phenomytian Phenomite (@Phenomytian) reported

    @zero_B_S @cyberspecht @arbornetworks @Cloudflare @A10Networks @PaloAltoNtwks Tucker Preston* I'm bad at names lol

  • evcz Marco Padovan (@evcz) reported

    @Cloudflare @eastdakota Curious why the Google outage is mentioned there instead of the Cloudflare one... The latter was actually related to a route optimization system that does packetloss/congestion/traffic analysis similar to what is described as Argo (@noction) 😂

  • JohnKleinRegina John Klein (@JohnKleinRegina) reported

    @zatlyn @tbeaudrymellor @PremierScottMoe @Cloudflare They'll need new people in charge. SaskParty is shutting down high tech jobs as we speak. Hundreds of layoffs expected, and businesses poised to leave the province with the arbitrary shuttering of home-generated green power's access to the power grid. #climateweek

  • VladLasky Vlad Lasky (@VladLasky) reported

    @Telstra please end your stubbornness and sign a peering agreement with @Cloudflare so Aussies users are no longer punished with slow speeds. 10.3% of the world's websites now use Cloudflare as their CDN/reverse proxy.

  • dxgl_org William (@dxgl_org) reported

    @davidclowery @sharpfilejeff @phyzonloop @Cloudflare @GoldmanSachs @MicrosoftHelps FBI needs to find a new CDN partner before they accidentally take themselves down.

  • LukeSartain Luke Sartain (@LukeSartain) reported

    @PureHeavenlyUK You have managed WordPress hosting, but it should be on a CDN like cloudflare. Will handle problems like this much better. Put up a form on the site offering a discount code when people come back. otherwise you will annoy Alot of people

  • dxgl_org William (@dxgl_org) reported

    @CopyrightOffice Your payments to #Cloudflare for hosting help facilitate infringement of copyrights via popular piracy websites like The Pirate Bay, who they knowingly keep in their services. cc @phyzonloop @sharpfilejeff

    @Cloudflare Done my .coms just need you to support .uk now

  • IanKoHoman Ian Homan (@IanKoHoman) reported

    @Cloudflare I made the worst mistake 3 months ago when I transferred out & I did so way too soon as found I could indeed add nameservers with no need for a 200$ business plan & I came back to you & I am so happy I did come back to you for my registar service.

  • jkbckr jkbecker 🤨 plz mentally append /s to my tweets (@jkbckr) reported

    @Cloudflare I would totally move all my domains over to you if I could, BUT: - .de unsupported - .me unsupported - supported TLDs but name containing punycode unsupported That leaves 7 domains on the table for me. And I'm just a random private customer on the free tier.

  • SarahR_Art Sarah Richford (@SarahR_Art) reported

    @LucarioOcarina @misspenart @Lycanrocario dang that sucks, I found more of my stuff there too. Their host is protected behind Cloudflare so im not sure how to even take a listing like that down too

  • sstphs sstphs is fe3h trash!! (@sstphs) reported

    @Kimori_private @discordapp Also, I'd like to see the source claiming it's a CloudFlare issue, b/c I've seen nothing indicating this. Even CloudFlare itself is stating it's operational.

  • tabrielaugus hi i’m tabs (@tabrielaugus) reported

    hey cloudflare how ******** am i supposed to enjoy the company of my friends when my friends can't even get on call with me

  • Kimori_private Kimori [PRIVATE] (@Kimori_private) reported

    @sstphs @discordapp The source of the issue is CloudFlare! Not Discord itself!

  • exeCuteSSM exe.Cute (@exeCuteSSM) reported

    @Marriegrace1 @discordapp Why you gotta be so rude bro It's cloudflare having problems, for the record

  • 120dlittle daniel little (@120dlittle) reported

    @discordapp are their problems with EUW server right now or some sort of issue with Cloudflare and discord went down simultaneously

  • ekiledjian Edward Kiledjian (@ekiledjian) reported

    @chungf @Cloudflare I believe your issue is not with Cloudflare but rather your browser cache. Between test, clear your cache, restart your browser. I performed 20 of so tests using 5 of the most common What Is My IP sites and it hid my origin IP every time.

  • HexstreamSoft Jean-Philippe Paradis (@HexstreamSoft) reported

    My personal prediction, just in case I'm right: On 29 september 2019, @Cloudflare will announce a major partnership with @letsencrypt (gold or platinum level) to bring free dedicated wildcard certificates to customers of all plans. (Now THAT would "help build a better internet"!)

  • domjhUK domjh (@domjhUK) reported

    @BALLETNEWS @CloudflareHelp @Yank Yeah, they have separate contacts for sales, support AT Cloudflare DOT com is generally just for existing customer support queries. You should have got an autoresponse, though with details of how to get in touch! ...

  • domjhUK domjh (@domjhUK) reported

    @BALLETNEWS @CloudflareHelp @Yank Ah, Cloudflare does provide a 'scrape shield' option to protect the site that can be configured. That may be the issue. Siteground should be able to help with this, since it is configured through them. They should at least be able to unlink that account and let you set it up!

  • domjhUK domjh (@domjhUK) reported

    @BALLETNEWS @CloudflareHelp @Yank It does happen fairly regularly that developers set up a site with Cloudflare and don't pass on the details to the client, unfortunately. In these cases, support can't generally transfer ownership of an account...

  • domjhUK domjh (@domjhUK) reported

    @BALLETNEWS @CloudflareHelp @Yank Thanks! I am sorry to hear that you haven't been impressed with Cloudflare, they are generally good, but often with support requests about accounts that cannot be accessed, they often cannot share any info for data protection reasons...

  • RussMichaels Russ Michaels (@RussMichaels) reported

    considering what @cloudflare actually does, you would think that the support staff would actually understand DNS, but no. Unbelievably they do not know the difference between a DNS server and a host record and no idea what glue records are.

  • amontalenti Andrew Montalenti (@amontalenti) reported

    @kamilsindi @datadoghq @zoom_us @Cloudflare I think there's more to it. SaaS solves real problems for people & businesses. Meanwhile, cloud hosting, open source, & modern dev practices mean the R&D core can be ridiculously headcount-efficient. Then, recurring revenue guarantees sustainability. And users are willing to pay.

  • kamilsindi Kamil Sindi (@kamilsindi) reported

    @amontalenti @datadoghq @zoom_us @Cloudflare The biggest differences seems to be around margin and customer acquisition cost

  • shettyvikki vikyath shetty (@shettyvikki) reported

    Cloudflare blocks or challenges bad requests from hitting my website. #cloudflare

  • erayd Erayd (@erayd) reported

    @plambrechtsen @sparknzsport I use Cloudflare DNS ( & I'm not going to change them. Those servers are fairly common; onus is on Spark to deliver a working service here. My setup is not unusual. No issues with any other streaming platform.

  • tuomotanskanen Tuomo Tanskanen (@tuomotanskanen) reported

    @Cloudflare No support for .FI or .AI. Please support those so I can switch over.

  • _JiTe_ Johannes (@_JiTe_) reported

    @Cloudflare Please start support .EU and .SE so I can move my last few domains over ;P

  • sixxisdesigns sixxisdesigns (@sixxisdesigns) reported

    @enki74 @HW_BEAT_THAT @GitmoChannel sounds right to me... its merely a ghost now... being that 8ch is no longer hosted on cloudflare, and likely will never be again.

  • JaeTldr jaetldr | git reset --hard birth (@JaeTldr) reported

    Just started using inspec, now chef ICE thing comes up. And I was feeling good about moving from cloudflare to cloudfront thanks to talks/tweets with @lizthegrey . Morals are hard but we can't let the bad guys win.

  • Andrew_Campling Andrew Campling (@Andrew_Campling) reported

    @eastdakota @mozilla @Cloudflare We do. If #DoH was designed better, respecting user choice, there wouldn’t be an issue. It needs to be fixed, then discovery (of resolvers) added.... Letting every app, IoT device etc select its own resolver is not smart.
