Airbnb is among at least 30,000 websites that were down worldwide beginning on Wednesday.

According to Zerohedge, 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 sporadically, Amazon, according to Downdetector.

There’s no word if the issues or outages are interconnected, but it certainly raises an eyebrow that something under the surface is happening.

For instance, Fidelity is experiencing issues and outages across major metro areas in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast states and other cities across the country.

As of Thursday morning, the Airbnb website appeared to still be completely offline.
