The reason for the downtime is unknown at this time. This isn’t the first time that the website has gone down. Just a few weeks ago, Reddit servers had gone offline by giving the same exact message. Although the company had never given the reason for it going offline.
Usually, Reddit’s old website remains accessible when the primary website goes offline. But this time, the old website had gone down too. This means that the primary server of Reddit must have been taken down.
