Can't Access Fiction Press - 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.

Sad days ); I was trying to fix the DNS issue on my phone for the website and then it went down completely. I thought I had somehow messed up my computer too.

Still getting when I try to log in on both FFN and FP:

503 Service Unavailable
No server is available to handle this request.

Gosh... Fanfiction and Fictionpress are both down and I wonder what's going on

Site is currently down for me.

It's a shame a professional website like this can't honestly support its users and makes a mockery of itself by going down all the time. Honestly, why bother using a site like this if it's as bad as,,, and youtube?

At least Youtube acknowledges something went wrong when it goes down, whereas they don't even care enough to tell us, the readers, what went wrong. I might just move my stuff over to some other site, like Deviantart.

It was working fine a few minutes ago and then suddenly shut down.

Seeing as it was down yesterday, and the second and now today too. Something is amiss.

Yeah, my managed stories section isn't allowing me to view my two stories. It keeps saying an error is happening. I don't know what to do, What if I want to post a chapter on my newest story? My account isn't letting me. I have no idea what is going on.

Okay let's just all ignore the fact that Fictionpress aint working either

Both FFN and FP are both down. Could it be possible that the server host for the websites is down?
