Internet users may have to face difficulties due to network failures across the globe for next 48 hours. As the key domain servers are set to undergo routine maintenance, internet users might experience downtime or there is a chance for total shutdown of Internet over the next 48 hours.

As reported by Russia, the ICANN (Inernet corporation of Assigned Names and Numbers) will perform maintenance work during next 48 hours by changing the cryptographic key to help protect the Internet’s address book or the Doman Name System (DNS). This whole process to fight cyber attacks.
