Can't Access DeviantART - 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 deviantart.net

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.

It's down for me again. It's only DA that won't load for me, so I know it's not my PC. It is the same as it was a few weeks back... the main site page won't even load for me. I get the standard " problem loading page " error message. I'm using the same browser ( Firefox ) that I always have and I haven't changed or added anything recently so I can only figure it's something on DA's end.

Deviantart is being totally weird. I am not able to check my notes or deviations. I see the notifications but when I click on them - it just says messages on top and nothing loads. When I try submitting something the screen is all f#!ked up and everything's just all over the place and there's no submit button and no place to choose a category. All the other sites are running just fine on my laptop. Please help. :(

It worked just fine a couple of hours ago. Now, no matter which browser I use, when I open DA the window loads as if to connect, sometimes it shows DA's background colour, but it doesn't go any further than that, and just keeps on loading forever ._.

Hello sorry again but I cannot get on to Deviantart at all now the page won't load. It just seems like it will load and stay at the google page. I hate to rush you but could you please get this fixed for everyone post haste. And keep it fixed, this has been happening a lot the past few weeks and frankly a lot of us are sick of it.

Man I still can't upload anything yet I can browse everything just fine now and it looks like everyone else can upload except me. Wtf. When it starts uploading the bar gets to about 90% then just stops and after about 20-30 seconds gives me that same stupid error. Doesn't matter which image I try. Very annoying.

Nicole Duval · 18 May 2014 - 22:23
United States · Frontier Communications · Chrome 34.0 on Windows

Deviantart is literally the only site I can't access right now. At first I got the upload error, but now the page suddenly doesn't exist (According to my Browser). Seesh, the first time I decide to draw something in a month and it's at the same time the site is down. This is really going to discourage me from drawing anything if this shit keeps up.

If the site's being hacked, I wouldn't be surprised if it is some anti-MLP group (But I'm not saying it totally is or anything). Deviantart is the easiest place to find the... Most controversial fan art of nearly any fandom. I hear it get made fun of a LOT with the Brony, Furry, and crappy OC content (Among other stuff. Especially R34). None of my friends think it's a serious art site because of that. It's more known for "bad artists" and art thieves than any other kind of art community user.

The reason why I assume it's anti-brony is because some Anon in that hacking group Anonymous tried to make a move called "Operation MLP" awhile back; to delete everything MLP related off of the internet, and f#!k with the accounts of any and all MLP fans. Their community voted against it (Since I guess Bronies helped a lot to stop SOPA, so they were cool with them), but IDK. Maybe someone for the movement decided to try at it by themselves or something? I've NO idea how Anon works, so I should keep my mouth shut. :x

Who knows? Who cares? Making these interesting but stupid scenarios are a good way to pass the time before I can get on DA again. I mean, it took my like, 5 minutes to write this shit (And you zero seconds to care, I know). Who knows how much longer I've got. Thank god for Netflix and Youtube.

Still having Deviation submission trouble. If you clear cache on your browser, it will let you re-access it.

I suspect DA is updating their submission servers, and may or may not have realized that it is causing disruption. I'll bet they will be posting an apology sometime later today, or tomorrow.

You know what I think? It is a DDOS attack and perhaps the hacker or hackers have a grudge against certain members of dA staff. Not naming any staff people would hold a grudge against, but I think there are a few that know whom I may be speaking of.

Anyway, its not funny as I'm expecting some messages at the moment and with it being like this I cannot get anything done whatsoever.

If YouTube can handle MILLIONS OF USERS and MILLIONS OF VIDEOS with mostly being 10 HOURS LONG with no site issues or 500 internal errors. I seriously cannot say why DeviantART keeps having issues every 2 days. I'm going to submit a site report once it's back up.

They don't even care about their glitches with the site. F#!king stupid if you ask me and I'll got over 2000 images uploaded on there. Worse than the annoying 500 error combined. >:(

I seem to be getting the main page to load (mostly after clearing up my cookies), but just having it hang when I try to sign in.

deviantART just isn’t loading up no matter how long I wait, and earlier any attempt I made to get onto it was just answered with ‘this server is taking to long to respond.’ Any solutions?

Like, for some reason it is perfectly fine for me from around 6 AM until around 6 PM. Around from 6PM until about 3 or 4 AM it jacks up and crashes for me.. For the whole hour of 5AM I kinda just watch Youtube videos, cause it starts working around 6AM for me.. That's just me, though, I'm not saying that's how it was for everyone. That's how it's been for the past 2 or 3 days for me..

I haven't been able to log in for like 3 or 4 days now. And I hate having to use my cell phone, because everything is so small... I hope it gets fixed soon >

Well... I can access it via mobile browser. I can even access it from Mozilla on a Windows machine on my LAN. I can't, however, access it from Mozilla or Lynx on my Linux system.
HTTP and HTTP0 requests sent, "Unexpected network read error; connection aborted"
Not sure what's going on. I've cleared my DNS and browser cache, reset my router and my system to no avail.
I have noticed, however, that a traceroute to DA gets an "!X" (administratively prohibited) at hop ae-2.r04.lsanca03.us.bb.gin.ntt.net (129.250.5.70). What I don't know, is if that's always been the case or not, as I get the same thing running tracert on Windows as well (even though I can access the site on that system). Also strange, a port scan of DA's IP (which I'm assuming is really a firewall or external router), shows about a thousand open ports.

Can't access it from Wales. Using FF 29.0.1 on a windows laptop. It works fine on my mobile and Vita.

"Down" in Arizona for the past six hours. Can access through my iPad via Safari but not on my laptop via Firefox.

Still down, same thing, it works on mobile but just won't make the connection here on Google Chrome on my laptop, here in Canada so. c:

Still down right now in Massachusetts since like 10 PM last night :'c Haven't tried the mobile website though.

Damn it, I can't even get on the site. Won't even load, just keeps saying "problem loading page"! This is very maddening

So let me get this strait, it works on my mobile but not my PC? Wow. I seriously need this to be resolved asap, seeing I was filling out replies to commissions and other art trades.. Ugh its annoying this is happening so much, i'm not going to lie. I thought it was my internet before I check other sites and realized DeviantART had went out 'again'.

Oi oi oi... This is getting very annoying!! This is what, the 2nd or 3rd time this week? It shows here that it's working but I tried to load DA on 3 different devices / browsers, and it sometimes does and doesn't load. So inconsistent!
I'm trying to have a conversation with a good friend of mine from a far away country. The fact that I can't reply to her is pissing me off.
If the DA staff want to do whatever they are doing like repairs or whatnot, at least leave a warning in advance!

Deviantart isn't working for me at all. I whenever it does load once in a blue moon it won't let me log in.

@Wolf Mackenzie "It is known enough to be attacked, but it should have enough security to ward against this better."

When sites like Netflix and eBay are going down as a result of the attacks, I think you need to reconsider just how much security you expect, especially for a website that most members use for free. This clearly isn't a simple issue to tackle otherwise it wouldn't still be ongoing.

This is definitely not only annoying, but also very inconvenient. I check dA two times per. day (apart from off days, like today) and those two times a day I am reliant on being able to take commissions, confirm adoptable sales, etc. and guess what? Yeah, I get the site for about 5-10 minutes before it fails.

It's down for me right now, luckily I managed to send out the orders before it crashed. I would ask the dA staff to please publicly address this issue if nothing else.

It doesn't work on my computer but works perfectly on mobile. If you're having trouble try using the mobile site and check the browser every so often

Deviantart has being on and off intermittently for the last 8 hours for me. It was cutting out almost constantly 8 hours ago, happening a little less now but still happening.

Maybe a certain group got tired of DDoS'ing the Steam server and switched to DA. It's behaving like a DDoS attack. It would explain why some are able to log in intermittently, and not others.

Weird that DeviantART is down, while https://support.deviantart.com/home is working fine here..

http://help.deviantart.com/contact/ - you can get to deviantart and use the site as normal from here ;) so the web domain is under some kind of attack?

Edit: Okay, not working anymore.. so there is a attack against them.. hope its not for loooong! :O

Question, is anyone having the SAME ISSUE as me? I'm trying to Log in, (This was before it crashed again, obviously.) But they literally would not let me at all. I was 100% sure that I got the Password right, so I'm not sure what was going wrong. This has happened to me before and I simply had to Clear my Cache, Cookies and everything was alright again... But unfortunately, not this time. Anyone know what is going on? Or how to fix this issue? :/ It's getting rather annoying and I'm pretty sure, it has happened to other people before as well...

And it worked for 2 minutes. And now it's down again. That one server they bought in 1992 is chugging along.

Well, at least you guys can log in. I've been trying like Hell to get my account back for three months now. I check four or five times a day to see if my request has been answered. Guess I better not take it for granted, it's just that I wish the staff had A LITTLE empathy. People get depressed, they lash out sometimes. I'm not sure where all this *comfort* nonsense is coming from, a lot of users on Deviantart can get pretty nasty, and some don't even KNOW you or care to get to know you. It's a crapshoot.
