Shopify Outages

As a Shopify Website Designer, occassionally there are issues with Shopify – for example, today we had a short website outage on one of our client's Shopify websites, where the web pages were giving an error message:

Shopify Website Error text: "There was a problem loading this website. Try refreshing the page. If the site still doesn't load, lease try again in a few minutes." I reached out to Shopify support, and they said there was a short outage today that caused this error and for my client's Shopify website to go down, and to try reloading again. Luckily, the outage was resolved quickly and the website was back up. I was worried that I may have somehow broken the Shopify site (unlikely), so I was glad to know it was a Shopify outage and not something wrong with our website. It resolved within about 15 minutes (of course, it was fixed by the time I got through to Shopify Chat support, where they had me reload and see that it was fixed.) Glad it was a short blip, we were working on sending out an email newsletter when we noticed the issue. For future reference, if you have any problems with your Shopify website, and you're not sure if it's just your site, or Shopify servers, here is Shopify's status page that shows if there are any active outages:

This is a good website to check if you are experiencing outages on your Shopify website, and I'm putting this link here in case this happens again down the road, I can check it!
