Blynk not working in the moment?

Hello,

I am new to BLYNK and just created the getting started and the joystick demo project exactly as provided … BUT …

My ESP8266 in ARDUINO-IDE 1.8.10 with BLYNK lib 0.6.1 is not logging in … in the serial window of the ARDUINO IDE it is logging into my WLAN and then keeping saying “[nnnnnn] Connecting to blynk-cloud.com:80” with inceasing figures nnnnnn …
In my ANDROID app what I made, my ESP is shown offline … The auth code I did copy exactly as I received in the email what I had gotten …

When I try to open blynk-cloud.com with a browser it is forwarded to https://www.blynk.cc/, what is resolved to 185.203.72.17 and not answering to ping (unlike 139.59.206.133 what is blynk-cloud.com) .

Any ideas ???

Regards,
J.

That is normal behaviour. There is no web content at blynk-cloud.com for you to view in a browser, so browser requests are redirected.
If you scroll to the bottom of this page you will see the cloud server statuses:
https://blynk.io/en/developers

What happens if you change your Blynk connection command to this:

Blynk.begin(auth, ssid, pass, "blynk-cloud.com", 8080);
