We have tried pinging Geocaching website using our server and the website returned the above results. If geocaching.com is down for us too there is nothing you can do except waiting.

Can't Access Geocaching - 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 geocaching.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.

This is a planned maintenance time. It has been posted on their site for a few days if not weeks.

Bernhard Baumgartner · 17 August 2013 - 12:58

Luckily I have allways a few thousand caches in GSAK, but this still is bad. Greetings from Austria

Bruce Taylor · 17 August 2013 - 12:53

Really today of all days? This is 100% unfair, we need a re-do of go geocaching day. Just glad we didn't leave the house yet and go on our journey to get there and discover we can pull up our caches. LAAAAAMMMEEE

Ron Bemis · 17 August 2013 - 12:45

We all pay $30 a year for this? Facebook is free and has never been this bad.

Steve Rossi · 17 August 2013 - 12:43

Glad I finished logging everything an hour ago

Jason Schultze · 17 August 2013 - 12:33

Currently it is down I imagine due to it being International Geocaching Day.

Radomir Hlavsa · 17 August 2013 - 12:26

Not working, again... Grrr

Keri Harty · 10 August 2013 - 09:28

Down in south Florida. Booooo! How could this happen during the August days of caching? Too many people maybe?

Shruti Jain · 10 August 2013 - 09:16

The app logged one of my finds thrice and kept giving me "Network failure" error. Even the website wasn't loading most of the times.

Doug Hughes · 10 August 2013 - 09:15

very much so. On my GPS and my cell phone. Seems this is happening a lot lately

Lillianne Taugher · 10 August 2013 - 09:00

just keep trying - we found 6 today and it took me 15 minutes to get them all logged. I just keep refreshing the screen to finally get in

Mary Imelda Heyes · 10 August 2013 - 08:51

Down in UK. Wonder when it will be back as I want to plan tomorrow's caching

Clinton Venter · 10 August 2013 - 08:29

Sabine Weigl · 10 May 2013 - 07:09

Markus von Gruenigen · 10 May 2013 - 07:09
