Can't Access DuckDuckGo - 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.

Site is down for me on west coast USA, has been for hours. A traceroute fails after 10 hops. Working fine for a friend on the east coast though. Issues in internet-land it would seem?

Duckduckgo search and stories app from Apple is flashing back .on iOS devices . Although websites like this and others may say that an app or web is up and running It may well be for Desktop PC. Or even on mobile devices that a browser has it installed on

Have tried to use this search engine X 50 tries so I've had to switch to Google Firefox to log onto internet. Working one day and computer on standby a day. Then when I tried to fire up as usual suddenly I keep getting this message. Duckduckgo.com had been my homepage search engine till day after yesterday. I restored PC with no changes?
