Can't Access FanFiction - 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 m.fanfiction.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.

@Sakura
My story is Fragments of Silver. It's a Harry Potter fic, though lately I've been getting more into writing Final Fantasy.

Dcq GameCrasher · 16 January 2016 - 13:48
· · Internet Explorer 11.0 on Windows

@ Sakura Hana: I've also written a few chapters to a Attack on Titan Fanfiction called 'Reach for the Stars' and a Borderlands Fanfiction called 'Pandora Adventures'. I'm also working on various Drabbles and other Anime/Gaming Fanfictions. It's always like this: I get a great idea, I write it down, I start writing a story and end up with thousands of unfinished Fanfictions in my folder. xD

And to answer your other question: Yes. I do like Yaoi. I don't even know why. But I own 8 different Yaoi-manga. xD
