Can't Access Dotster - 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.

Dotster is up. Cox Communication customers are affected by a maintenance outage that is effective until 9 am tomorrow is what Cox relayed to me. I can access evertyhting except Doster and my domain that I have through Dotster. Cox's system does not recognize Dotster's DNS. Topeka,Kansas

Dotster main page "this site can't be reached" and first began about 3 hours ago. My e-mail nor domain is accessible.

Email is working slaw again. Monday blues, I guess.

My website is functioning except for the blog page andf the "Store." Dotster support is useless. Their answer to everything is "clear the browser cache."

It was working for me about an hour ago but now it is down. :( Have had people checking out my site tell me that it was down.

Hard down, yet again.

Down as down gets - it's their root DNS, affecting all sites they host including themselves. Horrific for a namespace provider to let this happen.

Ryan Pennington · 21 January 2013 - 10:47

My email has been down all day. I've submitted multiple online tickets and have been on hold for a long time trying to get support. Not cool.

Joe Page · 21 January 2013 - 06:40

The NSI site hosted by Dotster has been down for over four days. We can get anyone from Dotster to respond
