We have tried pinging The Freecycle Network website using our server and the website returned the above results. If freecycle.org is down for us too there is nothing you can do except waiting. Probably the server is overloaded, down or unreachable because of a network problem, outage or a website maintenance is in progress...

Can't Access The Freecycle Network - 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 my.freecycle.org

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.

Thanks to Kent. That worked for me. The "https" just doesn't work anymore, I guess!

my.freecycle.org worked for me. I had the same issues as pp's.

also been having login problems today... I can browse, but not log in - there I get a connection refused. The tip for using the my.freecycle.org url worked though. I am using Win8 and Chrome as my browser.

I was having same problem and found out the regular link no longer works.

Try using this URL instead and you should have no problem logging in.

The main page is up, but everything else gets an Unable to Connect. This has been true all day today. The main page doesn't do squat. It is totally nonfunctional.
