Can't Access Grooveshark - 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.

Grooveshark is NOT "up and reachable" - yet 100% of every single other URL I enter IS reachable. Now what?

LIES. I have done 100% of EVERYTHING you recommend that is supposed to - allegedly - fix the issues with Grooveshark. ALL other websites work perfectly, the first time. GROOVESHARK - IS - DOWN!!!

Thumbs down. My suspicion is if you upgrade and pay $5/ month it will work perfectly. People, the free ride is over. Please tell me you are not surprised.

Grooveshark definitely has been down for me all morning. This site reports that it's fine. Thank you all for the comments. So, I will add mine: For me, Grooveshark is down; I don't even get to the home page at all. I need my Jack White fix and I need it now.

Grooveshark has not been working for the past 3 days. What's wrong? I love this site. I have 2, 500 songs in 11 playlists. It took me 2 years to organize. My friends and family listen to my station rather than the radio. I always wanted to be a deejay.

Looks like the issue is happening again... having errors in playing the songs at my broadcast. I just stopped the broadcast, restarted the browser and accessed the site again. The server is now really slow... screen is all orange.

Yeh, just the logo and the orange back ground is there. What is a full site refresh?

Update: if you quit out of the browser and then bring it back up when it is just the logo and the orange back ground then it will work.
