My website has been having some strange downtown over the past week, it goes down for a few minutes from 2 to 11 minutes each time. I pinged my domain a couple times during the downtime and noticed the IP pinging to the domain is a IP belonging to Akamai Technologies. Is this normal with cloudflare? Does cloudflare use Akamai Technologies’ network? The big issue with this is that when a Akamai Technologies IP is used it is not whitelisted by my internal firewall so the site goes down because it cannot communicate with cloudflare. Can I get the IP ranges associated with Akamai Technologies if this is legitimate?
I have DNSSEC installed on the domain and validated in cloudflare as well. Is my domain still somehow being highjacked?
Here is one of the IPs I found pointed to my domain 18.104.22.168.
