If you are looking for information of basically everything and anything under and over the sun, what do you actually do? Where do you actually go in the web for research? Wikipedia is technically and basically the most famous and most used website for gathering information on a certain topic at hand.


Imagine surfing through the internet and always depending on Wikipedia for information. Now try imagining of reaching this informational site for over an hour and not being able to get to it. Isn’t it frustrating to have the said site barred down? Well that was just what happened a few days ago. And believe me it is more frustrating than anyone could imagine.
Wikipedia barred down which lasted for more or less 40 minutes. If you go to the Wikipedia website, you will not be directed to the website. Instead there was a long time that the white blank page was displayed before showing an error report. There are also times when you will be directed to a page saying that Wikipedia is currently working on something that’s why it has been temporarily shut down.
Many assumptions have been hovering about the whole web world. This is not the first time that this has happened to Wikipedia. The latest one was said to be due to destroying of one of Wikipedia’s datacenters. This was due to the heating problems that the datacenters had. Too much pressure was experienced by the datacenter. But this also made the Wikimedia foundation open a new datacenter in US. Is this current incident the same as the latest?
The current problem was not due to any problem brought upon in the website. The real thing is that the said website has undergone improvements for updates. For the meanwhile, users must wait for the improvements and be able to decide if the wait is all worth it.
