Hundreds of major websites returned ‘404: not found’ errors after an apparent problem with Google Cloud. Alphabet said the problem was “partially resolved” after about ten minutes, but it will take time for everything to update.
The site DownDetector began showing a spike in reports of outages starting at 12:40 pm Eastern time, affecting Google, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Discord, Spotify, Tiktok as well as e-commerce sites Target, Etsy, Shopify and Home Depot, among others.
Amazon, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Cloudflare were also affected.
