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.

The Five Stages of Fanfiction Grief:
1) Denial: Oh, it must be my Internet access, refreshing the page ought to fix it.
2) Anger: COME ON I WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF A GREAT STORY! WORK, DAMN YOU!
3) Bargaining: Please work? It was my last story for the day...okay, I was only going to read a few more. I'll be productive right after that, I promise.
4) Depression: *sobs* *thinks of all the canon-dead characters who were alive in that fanfic* *sobs harder*
5) Acceptance: HA JUST KIDDING *continues sobbing and refreshing the page*

Well, this f******g s***s. I was check to see what stories I have under favorites have been updated, then i get the message "This Website is Not Available." What kind of bulls**t is that. This isn't even the first time it has happened to me, or the first site it has happened to. If the creators and admins of FanFiction.net cannot keep their site running 24/7, then I say they need to hire some people who have years of experience in the field of website design, networking, and software maintenance to help them with this very obvious malfunction that they overlooked when creating the site.

Now, unfortunately, it has been about an hour since this happened to me, and I am very pissed. The admins are also not even giving us a timeframe for when the site should be back up & running like have in the past, which does not sit well with me. Especially since I am very serious when it comes to timeframes.

Now, I'll admit I have a problem when it comes to fanfiction of different shows and/or movies, but this is one problem I don't intend to fix anytime soon.

So, I say this to any & all FanFiction.net admins and creators reading these comments, take my advice and hire people that actually know what they are doing in terms of networking and software. I don't mean to criticize you about your work on the site, but this is just ridiculous that it happens at least once a month almost.

Sincerely,

Brandon Butler (aka Bringer_of_Despair)

@Helen, I wouldn't call it rage, if you look through most of the comments, many are just expressing their agony and others are being funny, we are trying to cheer each other basically- letting others know they aren't alone. There is actually an addiction called online escapism which I can imagine most of us are experiencing right now, including me unfortunately. Real life just sucks too much.

They have been having severe weather today all over that region. hopefully one that passes FFN will be back up and running in short order. So hang in there people!

@Carole, no one's having a /real/ go at the staff, sweetie. We understand they're probably working very hard to get the site up and running again. As I said early, the extra fail-safe they added probably caused some problems. Also as I said earlier, it's very clear that most people are joking, and the staff's probably having a laugh right now and cheering that it's so popular people are complaining that it's down.

My comment is called honesty, from my perspective, I would rather be honest then have a go at the staff who work all day every day just so we can post our stories. All I said is that people are getting a bit silly, yes no one likes the sight being down, but saying let's rage is just childish.

@Carole, you know, you should be the one to grow up. Most people are joking, and it's pretty clear they are.

Is it weird that it always freaks me out when I find out that there are other people especially guys who are reading FF.net? I just get this crazy urge over methat I should scream something like "WTF!! NO! IT'S MINE!!!! MY PRECIOUS!! MINE!" Huh. So weird.

People need to grow up, just because fanfiction is down, does not mean that the world is going to end. The staff are likely working their asses off to get the site back up, and if you worked there, and saw these comments, you would not be very happy. So calm down.

I look out my window to see that I am not alone in this crisis. Others are venturing from their homes. Bleary eyed and squinting at the sun. Keep hope, we will remain strong. Though I fear cannibalism may start soon.

@ Carol you are in the wrong place to say those things, we are all here because Fanfics are quite important and we're suffering, if you are not suffering, leave us to suffer and complain, it is what we do best when we cannot read.

Didn't fanfiction say that they were adding another fail-safe? You know, to keep this from happening? And yet, here we are.

Wouldn't it be lovely if they would at least let us know what's actually going wrong? Or even let us know that they are actually WORKING on it?

So glad I use archiveofouown just as often as fanfic.net
It has this handy button: 'entire story' so you don't have to load chapter by chapter which helps when websites go down.
