Is Repl.it under DDoS attack?
CoolCoderSJ

Is it? Repl.it’s being super slow, and when I reloaded I got the Cloudflare DDoS redirect page

Nah, it just stops DDoS attacks. Repl probably reloaded or something, and was just checking if you were on a safe platform.

Not necessarily. From what I can assume, Repl.it probably got a lot of traffic from 1 ip address. Remember, most public Ip's are shared (if multiple people use the same network), so it may just be a school or something using repl.it a lot. Of course, this is not as likely as a DDoS attack, as it would take a lot of people using repl.it to trigger it's defence mode. Remember, if I had access to a terminal right now (which I don't), I could easily ping repl.it 100 times or so (probably more, if the terminal doesn't have a ping timeout) in 1 second (which I wouldn't; I love repl.it!)! Also, the slowness could be the result of a DDoS attack, or it could be that so many people are using repl.it (again, probably DDoS).

Yes, repl.it is really slow right now. I'm getting errors everywhere. but they are working on it though. soon it will be solved, and everything will be fine. just gotta have patience.
