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.

It is showing five new reviews after I posted the new chapter the other day, but I am unable to read any of them. The website, otherwise seems to be working, but I wonder why the review numbers are going up, though I cannot read them.

Fanfiction.net has been up and running perfectly on Internet Explorer 11.0 on Windows fine since the last power outages that happened earlier this month. I've even gotten replies from Fiction Press to my tweets and they told me themselves the site is fully functioning and they have no idea why this site keeps saying it's down! For now on when a problem happens with Fanfiction.net I go to this site for staus updates- https://currentlydown.com/fanfiction.net
All of you should too, not only is the site more accurate but it even shows where the site is down across the globe
