We have tried pinging DeviantART website using our server and the website returned the above results. If deviantart.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 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.

...Oh my God you people are so whiny and entitled.
Yes, it is down. So what? Personally I visit the site during the whole day and this is the first time it has happened to me in months. Maybe you should reconsider your Internet provider if it's down all the time for you?

God forbid they run into issues, no, they must be flawless.
Grow up. So it's down, wait a while, take a walk, draw or something.
Servers fail all the time - haven't you ever been to the bank and were told their system was down? ... Well, assuming any of you are old enough to even know how a bank functions.

Peace.

I've been unable to do anything on DA for over 12 hours now. It's making me pretty nervous because there are so many people that think I ignore them on purpose if I don't reply after a few hours. I also do a lot of business on DA, mostly on Sundays, so today was literally the worst day for this to happen for me, personally.

Unfortunately, "out there be monsters" that occasionally attempt to interdict our mission to bring deviantART to its worldwide audience. We are diligent and effective with counter-measures, but at times these measures can impact a small segment of authentic site visitors. For this, we sincerely apologize. We continue to work on the issue and will have a long-term solution available soon.

Last time it went down it only went down on my school's internet and not Verizon's 4G network. Now it's down on both my school network and my phone's wireless network. Deviantart has been going down every few weeks to few months, it seems. This is ridiculous. None of the other sites do this, and if they do, we get updates telling us what's going on. None of that from dA, though. Apparently they're too good to just let their users know what's going on.

@Camille ... yes, that is why I just said it's their Internet and not dA itself if it is down for them all the time since I - and a lot of other people - can still access the site just fine.

I've seen people bitch about dA being down tons of times while I can easily access and use it.

Right now it IS down, sure, it still doesn't justify this entitled crying.

At this point it makes me question DeviantArt, as a 'whole' first they don't seem to listen to our feed back, ( example being the majority of us didn't want the new update yet they did it anyways) being a former beta tester I read tons of other complaints before it even launched. They never really seem to give us any update via twitter, or facebook on their current status. I'd suggest it to them, but knowing how Deviantart never seems to listen I doubt it would change much.

Even though its been down only moments, I still feel like an update would be nice as to know when I can resume the site. I don't think that's asking a lot. Seeing as how they have others posting art on facebook and twitter, yet why never an update?

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

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.

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.

DeviantART is currently experiencing intermittent downtime. We're working to resolve things quickly and apologize for the inconvenience. ~post from d.a via facebook

I'm starting to wonder if its 'spam bots' overflowing the server or some kind of DDOS attack thing :c idk tho

According to somebody on Facebook, they said that one of their friends found the chatroom on DA where the hackers were planning this. Apparently according to the source they have lots of bots and they just overload the servers.

Rumor has said the DDOS attacks are coming from the /b/ board on 4chan,

The rumor makes little sense, why would 4chan even do that?

Heartbleed isn't a "hacker", and it was patched a long time ago. It's just probably a whole bunch of skiddies who think they're doing the world a service by DDOSing the website.

It's been happening a lot lately, we're sadly just gonna have to get used to it... (Even though I was having a fun convo with my best friend)! o///o No need to check your internet connection if dA isn't loading, I guess? x3 *derp*

Why does deviantART keep crashing?? Like, they've been crashing so often for weeks now, I'm starting to worry about the site.. ;-;

So DA is down again...unsurprising. I really hoped this was solved. Looks like I've got time to do some cleaning of my room until this damn site is fixed.

Its not just the site, there have been numerous reports of DoS attacks, so chill it. As soon as whoever it is stops, dA will try and solve it.

And here we go again... *sighs* I wonder when they'll resolve this mess, it's been going on for quite a while... Well, I'm glad I at least got something in right before it went down, haha

(OOC: You people need to calm down. When it happens, it happens. They could be updating the website and fixing bugs. I can understand how annoying it can be, but for now, just put up with it. I'm sure it will be fine at least in a few hours or by tomorrow. )

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. >:(

It is down for me again. This is becoming really disturbing. Of course, I understand, things happen, but not every damn couple of days! I'm curious what's happening. Other websites and social networks manage millions of users every day and stay up, and deviantart is constantly somewhere in the astral dimension...
