We have tried pinging City-Data website using our server and the website returned the above results. If city-data.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 City-Data - 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.

Email them - webmaster@city-data.com

Does anyone know if City-Data.com has an official Facebook or Twitter account?

Mars Asinhereon · 15 January 2013 - 14:50

Uh oh! More problems today. :(

William-Robert Kent Cousert · 15 January 2013 - 14:45

Database error. I'll bet they're trying to install a new Vbulletin module.

Chris Powell · 15 January 2013 - 14:43

seems to be having problems again

William-Robert Kent Cousert · 10 January 2013 - 14:48

Apparently the outage is caused by a denial of service attack. I was able to connect through a proxy server and read a few messages about it.

Beverly Shuttleworth Thornbury · 10 January 2013 - 14:02

I still can't get on or receive my emails from the site..

Atlanta Owner · 10 January 2013 - 12:36

As of 3:36pm EST it seems to be back up.

Shirley Pittman Otradovec · 10 January 2013 - 12:29

been down about 24 hours

Doug Robson · 10 January 2013 - 11:19

Too good and valuable of a website to be gone forever. Maybe changing server or domain or something? For straight-up info, zipskinny.com and hometownlocator.com is best I've found so far. As for the valuable message boards, a little tougher. There's a forum on Hotpads.com (go to Resources, Hotpad Answers). It's geared primarily towards renting but there's info about different areas, just have to dig a bit. If I find anything else, will post.

William-Robert Kent Cousert · 10 January 2013 - 11:09

What's a good alternative in case they don't come back right away?

Lucy Mosca · 10 January 2013 - 10:42

I hope it comes back!

Ken Brill · 10 January 2013 - 07:11

It has been down since sometime last evening.

Esteban Dime · 10 January 2013 - 05:45

I did a little research and found that Advameg, Inc., the company that owns city-data, has an F on the BBB website. Hmmmm.

William-Robert Kent Cousert · 10 January 2013 - 03:47

Apparently they don't have a Facebook page. Or a Twitter account.

Mars Asinhereon · 9 January 2013 - 20:00

Maybe they didn't pay the electric bill this month! (eek)

William-Robert Kent Cousert · 9 January 2013 - 18:51

It's down for the count.
