Can't Access Gaia Online - 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.

I understand that Gaia had maintenance scheduled, but it is still down for me.It takes to long to respond so my connection cuts. I checked all my settings for servers and connections and they are good to go.

I'm scared to see what these people would do if they were online when the website was integrating from gogaia, to gaiaonline. The website would go down for days to complete maintenance, some days it even went down for 12 hours or so then immediately went offline again to fix a few bugs.

Don't fret my fellow gaians, the website will come back online and the end is not nigh. Just find something else to preoccupy yourself with and make sure it's stimulating, also wait a couple more hours before jumping to conclusions. This is coming from a 10 and a 1/2 year veteran.

Seriously people, it's down because there was Scheduled maintenance, and before anyone tells me that it's past that time frame, I know. But did anyone think that maybe something might have gone wrong, like it has in the past when they do scheduled maintenance? I'm not trying to be rude, just frank. Because every time the site goes down the rumors start flying again that they shut down. Websites go down on occasion.

Don't worry about clearing the announcements! We'll just cram a few hundred more down your throats anyway! Have some rigs! Have some recolors! Have some gold generators and booty! Watch us do everything we said we wouldn't do!

I've gotten so used to gaia crashing I literally back up any important posts that I would be pissed if it crashed and I lost all the data. Simple. Copy and paste people, copy and paste.

Oh and to gaia: at least give us a waning before closing down the site in staff announcements. Or give us a free item each worth 1 billion cause damn, this is annoying as hell and there have been far too many "down for maintenance" crap lately.

Spend OUR GAIA MONEY on GAIAONLINE.COM NOT your new crap p*rn site.

This isn't the first time Gaiaonline has crashed on me. I figure the release of New Items and Everyone being on at once did it. Just gotta wait it out, if it were like it used to be, you could always change the domain names and find shortcuts to get around. But not today, though.

I have full internet connection and Gaia is taking a very long time loading. When it does finally load, everything is shoved over to the left in a column of text and the background is completely white. It's been doing this for three days now. I went on with two different computers, so its not the connection and its not my computer. What's going on? Is there any thing that can be done?

It's amazing how much Gaia seems to have gone downhill in the months that I've been gone (which, wasn't even THAT long). First I'm blown away by the inflation, then the CONSTANT announcements for items, and now this.

WELL'P, nothing much to do but wait. q v q);; Guess I'll go draw. weh

Eli Gardner · 3 April 2014 - 14:38
United States · Time Warner Cable

I just come to Gaia to chat with my friends really. the items in the Market Place are waaaaay way too high to even get. people make more gold so people put things at higher prices. something that was just 100 gold is now a million! i guess it makes sence but their really is no differance from way back when people didn't make enough gold, so items were cheaper back then. so if you ask me, no, their is no differance. it's just the ones that can't make even a mil seem to quit gaia.

Nikki Gartley · 3 April 2014 - 14:35

It sounds more like they're trying to fix the issues. Maybe they're doing this so that they can correct whatever's happened to make it go down so often, or they could actually be trying to fix inflation and such (because that's just ridiculous)..

I'm such a loyal customer that I got rewarded with an empty loyalty shop, no PMs, no forums and uhh... oh yeah the cash shop, that still works, never fear. Nevermind that the new princess stoic eyes are actually missing a whole pose...

Actually predicted that gaia would crash and burn either "within a few days" or "within a couple of weeks" so it was a surprisingly accurate prediction of the end. Such a damn shame that the management never wanted it to last in the first place, just to grab money all the way down and not let anyone know what they were really doing.

For those not in the know, they have a new loyalty shop and guild, and you get into either if you've logged in 75 days out of the last 90. I think that, coupled with the massive PMs they had to have sent out, crashed the site -3-

Merp. This is a little disappointing. Oh well, hope everything gets fixed. I guess no Gaia for me until I get home from work. Really unfortunate considering I had JUST gotten a really beautiful piece of art. :(

Yay. Gaia is indeed down. Now I can do useful stuff instead! Didn't notice the maintenance message throughout all their sales, sales, sales.

People complaining that they can't contact their loves: Quick quick! Go find one in real life now that you have the motivatioooon! D;

There was a staff notice informing users about a certain amount of allotted days that would be dedicated to server maintenance and it said that there might some posting or browsing issues here and there. It's probably only just showing up now; after all, the time period stated to be dedicated to maintenance was quite a long time. Albeit I don't remember the exact dates, but I know it's not over yet.

Not sure how Gaia servers being offline have anything to do with the new CEO. People need to stop overreacting, you guys look like idiots. Be patient it will obviously be back up.

They're doing maintenance. They've been doing it for days, but yesterday there was a notice there would be problems with the site. That's most likely what's happening now.

I'm going to agree with Dr Hate. Move on people, there are a million other sites that have stuff like this that have been around Longer. And they also have more fail. Neopets for example.

there are a milllion+1 reasons why gaia could be down. Once they're back online I'm sure there will be an announcement saying what the culprit was and a huge apology from them. It's not the end of the world. This isn't everyone's first rodeo with this issue. All will be back to normal and this one down time will be long forgotten.

All the item announcements are for both our benefits and the site's. They are dishing out recolors and stuff to make us happy, all they request is our help to help keep the site running and fixing the crap Lanzer left behind. Keep in mind that the CEO buys sites and loses money on every site he takes over. To spend millions on a resume? Is he really wanting to help dead and boring sites and bring them back out of good will?

Well I guess we should give him a break, unless the job he's after is so important to him he has to rip off the children of the world, we should trust that he won't ruin Gaia.

Don't get me wrong, as far as the CEO's gaia has had, this is not the best by any means. But we can't blame every detail on him. If we're going to be comparing things to American politics, think of it like: The president has a ton of power, but can only do so much in war and economy without the back of congress. Just like a CEO can't do much without his technically skilled employees.

Josh Brown · 1 February 2014 - 06:46

Hmm, well I guess the maintenance is going into serious mode. Maybe they will do something we can actually see and fix something that's broken for once. The whole "we'll work on stuff that pays" mantra is BS.

Abigail Aries · 1 February 2014 - 06:46

So you're saying we're having another "Obama Issue" were a lot of people think he's bad, but he's doing these things to help the site? Even if it means destroying the economy but to eventually fix it again when things are settled down? Well I guess maybe we should trust him a bit more.

Kayla Krug · 1 February 2014 - 06:30

Once again gaia's servers go down for maintenance and people flip their shit about the plug being pulled. News flash everyone: The CEO isn't purposely making the servers shit themselves down, it's a server side issue, and I'd lay my bank account down that all these sales in the cash shop right now are to afford new servers.

Abigail Aries · 1 February 2014 - 06:19

Time to pull the plug in: 4 years, 11 months, 34 days, 15 hours, and 41 minutes. screw you CEO. :>

Wait, nvm, if the site he was running shut down, it wouldn't look too good on his resume, he'll just destroy the site but not shut it down.
CEO: -troll face-

*flips table* Da f#!k aia! D:< I'm so angry with you lately why do you do this to me! ; u; In regards to the comments about the ceo, I wish he would just leave and take his f#!king site killing pain in the ass with him. He's a total jerk and an idiot. He knows he killing the site but as long as it looks nice on his resume then f#!k it. Douche bag.

Edit: F#ck it. I'll just go on tektek and make avi's that sadly I'll never be able to get because of the f#!ked up inflation in the mp ;m;

Not cool man. Does anyone have a clue as to why the site is down right now? Or have my suspicions about this dip-$#!% current CEO finally been confirmed, and they decided to pull the plug on gaia?

T^T are you kidding? This is like the tenth time the site has been down since the new year... some of us have rps to respond to T^T get your shirt together Gaia!

Damn it... it went down as I was trying to sent a very long Pm to my guild members -_-

....nah, In my experience the best thing to do in a situation like this is panic and place as many exclamation marks in one post as possible, and of course you can't forget to swear every other post, or if your feeling bold every post. then rinse and repeat until the site comes back on. (these actions pleases the internet gods so the site comes back faster.) >.>

i think the issue was that the site was down with no information as to why and when it might be back up. gaia has two social media accounts (twitter & fb) why not use them for i don't know... communication?

As you may have noticed, we're currently experiencing some pretty nasty technical difficulties. We're continuing to work toward getting everything resolved and back up as soon as possible so sit tight until then. Thanks for your patience and sorry for any inconvenience!

I've seen this kind of shut down a few times before. It'll come back up. If it dies, it won't be so sudden
But it'll be sad if this site dies...
It reminds me a little of Tinierme ... :/
Origionally about the users and having fun. Now all about money and when there is no more income...
Well, lets hope they get their priorities straight soon. If it's gonna die, I hope it's not slow and painfully.

Josh Brown, I'd second that. After all, Black Friday is a great money maker for companies, if you're gonna shut something down, after Black Friday is a great time to do so.

Michael Maton · 9 December 2013 - 14:00

In regards to Yuki Fate Shimizu's statement. The new ceo of gaiaonline is a mobile platform business ceo, meaning hes used to microsales and fast pointless profit. Hes trying to do this with gaia which is working somewhat. My research indicates he doesnt stay with any one project for more than 3 years. He took over gaia in january and I believe the recent influx of spam cash sales is an attempt to put on his resume that he increased profits xfold in his first year, then later he will ditch it or close gaia down and move onto a project he prefers. If you're an old player, like I am, you're sticking around mostly because of time and money you may have invested during the time it wasnt a money grubbing pile of puke. It makes me sad to see what it's become. However besides lanzers lack involvement in the site since its selling, the ceo logged on to lanzers account and posted as if he was lanzer when we first complained about the constant forced announcements about cash shop sales; also the firing of several old staff members, and original founders and artists.
