Can't Access Elance - 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 effectively down - home page MAY load, but I can not log in - it simply times out with a Cloudflare page indicating the error is with Elance, not the Cloudflare servers. I can reach all other sites just fine - only Elance is a problem

I cannot log into the sight using several types of browsers and I just posted a job. Very frustrating. Hopefully, they rectify this asap. Never a good sign when a sight goes down during working hours.

These type of sites show that Elance is up, but for me it's only good initial connection. Once in, if I try to move within the Elance site, I get a disconnect. I use a VPN service, so every time I switch out to another ISP connection location, I can get back in, but as before, once I am in Elance, I cannot move around within the site without getting disconnected again. AAAaaargh!

When I get paid I IMMEDIATELY withdraw funds, I don't leave big money on Elance for exactly this reason.

They did site work on Saturday night, I think what ever they did crashed when everyone hit them first thing Monday. Just speculation... I'm a designer not a techie.

They're sitting on a big chunk of my escrow dollars. I wonder just how "escrowed" they are!? Gulp ;-)

Maybe they use the same tech team as Obamacare!

Guys, they will up in some time, This is Technology & No one Can predict what can happen in next moment. They would be Updating Something.. Shifting the data to a new server also takes time as all the configurations need to be done. Mr. Michael is behaving like a non technical client...hahahah... Elance guys if you are here please see how client response to a Contractor when they are hanged up truely in some technical issue...

Oh well. Life is not perfect... So these things happen... If it is a routine issue then it should raise concern. Otherwise eh... It will be alright.

im sure they did some maintenance on sunday or saturday between the times of 8pm-10pm so what up with it now, you have made a billion and can afford to run the server, joke

what kind of service are you providing for all those clients which need there work done urgent and then a problem happens is that the freelancer fault, we over self want to keep the reputation but i do not think ELANCE wants as what they say client satisfactory, but they are proud of the 1 billion they have made so far

Michael Techboy · 17 March 2014 - 07:04

Wow wow wow! I guess this is what happens when you hire offshore devs to a manage the site. Freaking sucks. Man, my company's servers are set with http: response scripts. If there is no response, all of the officers of our company get text messages, land lines ring with a recorded message "X Server is not responsive. X Services are not responding. Dial 1 to acknowledge this message." You'd think a 100m per year company would have the same... but NOOOOOO! :))) Pretty sad.
