Background
An “Error 503: Service Unavailable” with no Cloudflare in the message means you need to contact your hosting provider for assistance. It generally means your host is rate limiting requests to your site or that I’m Under Attack Mode has been enabled on the domain.

Quick Fix Ideas

  1. When you post, please include your domain name & the time and timezone of the 503 error occurrence and check your host logs prior to posting.

  2. When you post here, please include a traceroute between your origin and one of Cloudflare’s IP addresses, ideally one of the addresses that usually sends requests to your site. See how to run a traceroute test.

  3. If you are seeing a traffic surge or attack against your site, when you post in the Community, let us know if you are seeing this in the error logs from your host.

  4. Disable Always Online if it is enabled.
