Can't Access Ancestry UK - 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 home.ancestry.co.uk

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.

Ancestry is such a rip off. Today it's impossible to add records once again. As for phantom hints, I have 100s but they say they can't remove them without a clean up, how long does that take I wonder? The hints have been there for months with no action. And whoever transcribes the records for ancestry clearly can't read as there are numerous errors.

Go back Retry" but http://ancestryuk.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail-announcement/a_id/9284 shows no issues. Not good service.

I am losing the will to live TRYING to view Ancestry.co.uk has virtually stopped, it is so slow.
This ridiculous situation is "not good enough". It is a expensive site and the people on this blog are fed up with a second rate service. What actually IS the problem ? Is it that their servers are just not strong enough to provide a reliable service !! Whatever the cause, we are paying hard earned money and getting a disgraceful service. Who else agrees, that members should get a refund for "at least" 2 weeks, if not more !!

Ancestry is not responding for me at all at the moment. This is frusttrating as this is a time opportunity for me to do a bit of research. It is an expensive website, which I rarely experience issues with, so I would have expected advance notice of maintenance.

Jan Kingshott · 6 March 2016 - 00:29

The site is still very slow and crashes every time you move to a new page. Definitely an issue with the site, and not with me. Considering how much I pay for this site every year, this is disappointing, to say the least.

I am a regular user of Ancestry. Please get your Tech team to find out what the problem is with response time. I use on several computers with different browsers at different locations, so I know the problem is NOT at my end. We pay a lot of money for this and expect to be able to use it. Sort it out!

There appears to be a problem with the LIFESTORY algorithm which is irritatingly corrupting locations (Birth, Marriage, Death) with unintended foreign places.

It occurs to me that any future correction of the algorithm will regenerate and overwrite the contents of the LIFESTORY entries - including destroying any work already undertaken by users who may have submitted EDITS to enhance the Lifestories.

I have over 900 duplicate people on my tree. Every time I try to merge a person with his/her duplicate, you crash and have to shut down. Re-booting involves a lengthy synchronization.

I get the feeling that the technicians at Ancestry are 2nd rate at best. For more than 6 months now I have been reporting an issue with hints whereby the number of shaky leaves indicated at the top of the page (about 20 at present) bears no relationship to what is shown in the summary (over 200 right now) at a time when I only have 2 hints in reality. Each time I have called, (about once a month) they manually correct one, and say they are working on it

This morning neither Hints nor FTM l2014 ink working AGAIN - third consecutive day. Do they care at all - I doubt it.

Around 1:30 p.m. MT on Monday, June 16, 2014, attackers targeted Ancestry with a Distributed Denial of Service attack (DDoS). During the attack, Ancestry websites along with the Find A Grave website were clogged with massive amounts of bogus traffic that took the sites down. UPDATE (9:10pm BST): We were able to bring the site(s) back online, but have experienced another outage. Please bear with us as we work to restore all services.

Ancestry.co.uk is still down for me but at least they're admitting it was a Denial Distribution of Service attack or something like that. Said on their FB page that there'd be intermittent outages until they're fully back functioning again. Hope they find those responsible and throw the book at them. The number of people on the FB pages of both .co.uk and..com sites who have said they're going to cancel because of this is unreal. It's not like it was Ancestry's fault that some malicious person decided "I know, let's go after Ancestry.com now". Ancestry aren't responsible for the actions of those people.

Marble Hill I have also been a member of ancestry but for approx 14 years now. And it has been down many, many, many times - although I don't recall anything as long as this. Obviously must be caused by someone fed up with the new search :)

Perfect time to review and type up my notes and decide where I want to go next.. Out of the 10 years I have been on this is the first time it has been down.. Stop stressing everyone, it is not the end of the world.. Go outside and do something constructive!

Could not get onto Ancestry.co.uk last night and cannot get onto it again this afternoon. Also cannot get onto it through Family Tree Maker. I can get onto Findmypast with no problems. Thought I had a problem with my computer but apparently not.
