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

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.

I'm having a issue with the website, I'm trying to submit art and look up of these notifications and the whole website is been happening and not responding for days because every time I click on one of them, the screen keeps going blank and I want it to fixed as possible.

Jonathan Walker · 4 days 2 hours ago

I am trying to submit something. But when I bring up the submit art page, there is no content, the screen is just blank.

This was happening before when I got back from Hawaii; I was unable to post my journal entry to inform you guys of my return but nothing appeared on the screen.

According to Deviantart, there was an issue with uploading files to the gallery or Devious Technology was currently aware of this and investigatded the issue and had it resolved on November 22, 2015, 5:23 AM

However, I'm not sure if this is true, because I am still having problems as nothing isn’t showing up on the submit page.

Is there malware on DeviantArt? I keep getting this window popping up saying somebody is trying to hack into my machine and gather all my personal details etc. I know its just another one of those decieving ads to fool me into downloading spyware so until DeviantArt resolves this I am staying off their site.

Guys, DA started working normal here, finally. I logged in the site by another computer (another house), and there worked correctly. Now I came back home, and tried to login in DA again, and it's working...

I tried to contact their Help Desk by mobile, but I didn't succeed yet. By the way, I'm quite confused.

I asked four brazilians friends to access the site, and it was working correctly... they were able to even log in my account for me, for example. Then I asked a buddy in Uruguay, and he was able to access the site too. Then I asked two FB friends from USA, and it was working correctly for them too.

What the hell is going on? All of them were able to access the site (they showed me), but why just SOME OF US in Latin America are unable to access DA? Anyway, if I get any info about it, I warn you.

I do think so, too. The update's been so heavy lately, comparing to the upload/download traffic of my internet. Sometimes, it would crash Google Chrome for some reason. I hope they would make it lighter T_T

Do you think it has anything to do with all the app updates? They might have screwed some code up. Is my guess, otherwise they usually fix things faster than this if it's a physical server thing.

DeviantART seems to be acting up on my iPad today. Every time I go on, and I go to my notifications but they won't show, or they take longer than normal. The page also tends to jump alot. Like I'll be looking at a picture someone made and the page will suddenly jump down to the bottom and I have to scroll back up, only for it to blank out and jump down again.. Then on profiles, the page will jump down and back up again on its own and it gets REALLY annoying. :(

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.

Why the heck will they waste time in hacking deviantArt, there's nothing good worth to do it

dA, a page that gets money everyday from us can't maintain it, and it doesn't get as much traffic as other pages so there's no excuse

I got on D.A. for about 5 minutes to see what messages I have, then it went back down, hopefully they fix it soon... I really wanna keep working on the work I've been doing and hopefully I don't have to restart on the poems

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.

@ Shelby Kabler could you give us a link?

I knew something like this was going on

Every year people will attack servers that i usually go on leaving the sites down for months

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.

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*

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.

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...

Now here's this. if YouTube can manage MILLIONS of users and content providers and their videos without any barely disruptions or issues without a problem. I can't see why DeviantART always get hit by server problems. Thank god I do not get that infamous 500 internal server error now like what I did most of the time back then. I think it's up now for now.

I am having trouble with trying to go to the next page because when I click next all it does is give me a blue circle like it's trying to load the next page and it just sits there but I have no problems on my phone or my Kindle so why is Deviantart being so slow on the computers?

Well, its nice that my portfolio isn't working and it was just sent to a potential work employer. Isn't that reason enough to be a bit disappointed? Have to consider making another portfolio because this is so not cool :

I literally want to slap everyone saying it is dA's fault.

Something is attacking over 200, 000 us servers, causing several sites to crash without warning or explanation.

I repeat: This is NOT dA's fault!
