As it stands, the server issues are due to ongoing large-scale DDoS attacks on the Minecraft server. Hypixel is thus working on many network improvements to lessen the impact of the attacks.

However, while these improvements are being made, the Hypixel Network has been taken down for emergency maintenance. Hypixel says that the process may last for at least 24 hours.
