Sometimes these issues last longer than one thinks or there are several interconnected issues.

I suggest you allow some longer time for things to settle down.

Generally, if a particular page is unavailable, the impact tends to be limited, but if the whole site was inaccessible it might take a littlke long to rebuild "trust" i.e. confidence that if visitors are sent your way, your site will cope.
