Can't Access ABC News - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Try alternative urls such as abcnews.com

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

It says it's down but its not

Please note that pinging a site tells you that that server is up, but that does NOT mean that is it accepting connections. in other words:
abcnews.go.com is plugged in.
The web server on abcenws.go.com is down.

abcnews.go.com doesn't come up for me - other websites do

Barbara Ann Rau · 16 November 2015 - 15:08

I can't get on abc breaking news...and all other sites I can, ie NBC, CBS. what is wrong?

Lauren Craun · 16 November 2015 - 03:50

I can't get on abcnews.go.com from my phone or computer. It's the only site not working...

John Payton · 16 November 2015 - 03:21

The site's been unreachable from here for a couple of days now.

Over 24 hrs now without abcnews.go.com. I tried IE instead of firefox which also timed out, and invoked the troubleshooter which told me:
"Problems found: website (abcnews.go.com) is online but isn't responding to connection attempts."
So its not my browser, nor DNS. What is it?

James Tormos · 15 November 2015 - 01:12

Ok...over 7 hours now. Still no abcnews.go.com. DNS is doing this:

C:\>ping abcnews.com
PING abcnews.com (199.181.132.248): 56 data bytes
64 bytes from 199.181.132.248: icmp_seq=0 ttl=244 time=93 ms

C:\>ping abcnews.go.com
PING abcnews.gns.go.com (68.71.212.40): 56 data bytes
64 bytes from 68.71.212.40: icmp_seq=0 ttl=244 time=93 ms

It translates the abcnews.go.com to abcnews.gns.go.com, but both provide a very good, immmediate response.

Why can I not get to abcnews.go.com ??

Must be just me, too. I can't connect, keep getting timeouts. Over two hours now.

I'm on the Comcast network near Atlanta and ABC News won't load at all for me though this site lists it as up and accessible.
