We have tried pinging Apple website using our server and the website returned the above results. If apple.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 Apple - 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 mac.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.

So, as of 4:11 pm CT, Apple's servers are still backed up. I had called my carrier, and they told me that it'll be a while before new or restored iPhones can be reactivated, since the iOS 7 update was released today and their servers are currently busy with that.

So, it looks like we'll just have to play the waiting game until we can activate our Apple devices!

You need to check your D-Link router configuration to see if the "enabled advanced DNS services" is checked. Uncheck this option and save the new settings to your router.
DNS needs to direct to your ISP DNS instead of D-Link DNS (which is not working for apple.com at the moment).

I don't know what's happening but it has been driving me crazy! My wifi connection immediately disconnects and I get redirected to the dlink search thingy. Hopefully apple gets on fixing this soon... I'm attached by the hip to my iphone, I don't think i can wait hours on end about this.

My iPhone won't connect at all! I tried it on another network (away from my home one which was at a different location) and it worked fine! Came back home and it redirects me to a "Login" page of DLink search options. I cannot connect to the internet at all on my iPhone??? Apple websites also do not work on any of my home computers?

My email app on my droid stopped working about 4 days ago. I thought it was something I did (although I couldn't think of what it was). First it was allegedly my password (they said it was wrong...it wasn't). Then it wouldn't connect to the server at all. It's 3 days later and still nothing. i can get gmail and yahoo but not Apple. Luckily for some reason I CAN get my Apple email using my laptop. Have there been any notifications about this? I only found out about it from the guy at Verizon. Maybe it's a sign that I shouldn't be getting email on my phone :-)
