We have tried pinging Akamai website using our server and the website returned the above results. If akamai.com is down for us too there is nothing you can do except waiting. Probably the server is overloaded, down or unreachable because of a network problem, outage or a website maintenance is in progress...

Can't Access Akamai - 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.)

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.

Having Problems with Accessing Akamai.com?

What is up with Akamai?? I am trying to live webcast through their servers using xSplit and haven't been able to do so for weeks. All my settings are correct and I've used them to stream this way before. Nothing has changed except for the fact that as soon as I start to stream, I receive the message "broadcast was terminated". I cannot even test the bandwidth because it says my connection was rejected by the server. Extremely irritating!!

Have noticed Akamai is affecting youtube and facebook right now

248.3.akamai.net is down hard. Just pinging akamai.com is useless, that isn't where they host the caching servers. Otherwise, thanks for this site.

Cannot reach any sites where Akamai is involved on any browser whatsoever. Every site that is waiting and has no response when pinged results in an Akamai address.
