We have tried pinging Better Business Bureau website using our server and the website returned the above results. If bbb.org 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 Better Business Bureau - 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 bbb.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.

Can't connect to the BBB site. I've tried 2 different browsers.

I can search for a business & find them but clicking on anything takes me back to the search page. Same on tablet & desktop via MS Edge & Chrome.

***I can reach them via IP: http://184.173.28.40/

Looks to be an issue with DNS. Probably lost a bgp link somewhere. Since all of their sites redirect to IP: 108.168.185.244, all of their DNS names load with 500 error.

May not be "down" but the site doesn't come up in Firefix, chrome, or IE. The status message is "transferring data from bbb.org" or something like that. Sits there with a blank white screen. I waited about 3 minutes before I gave up waiting.

LA BBB is down because they're being kicked out of BBB National. BBB National is up but not all companies are visible (yet).

The BBB site is reporting a 502 Bad Gateway error. I've tried to access the site for over an hour.
