​Asos website crashes due to technical glitch

Jun 24, 2016

Shoppers were left unable to order Asos items on Thursday evening as its website and platform crashed due to a technical glitch.


The British retailer denied social media claims that the incident was connected to Britain’s decision to leave the European Union.

“Yes, the site is down”, said a spokesperson. “This is because of a power outage at a third party data centre that hosts our servers. This has impacted other businesses hosted by the centre. Our tech team are working hard to restore services which involves replacing damaged hardware. That’s why it’s taking longer to get back online. We are keeping our customers informed on social media.”

As of Friday 8 pm, the website and app were still unavailable.
