UPDATE at 1:50 p.m. – The website is now up.

The New York Times website went down on Wednesday morning, the paper confirmed. Some reports said the website might be under cyberattack, but the Times denied this.

Users trying to access the site got a “Http/1.1 Service Unavailable” error message displayed on top of a blank screen.

The paper’s official Twitter account, The Lede, confirmed the website is down.

“We are having technical problems on http://nytimes.com  – please follow @RobertMackey for Twitter updates on Egypt crackdown,” it wrote.

Journalist Julia Boorstin wrote on Twitter that the Times told her: “The site does appear [to] be down; we’re looking into it.”

The Times’ mobile app service also appeared to be down.
