Can't Access Homestead - 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.

If this isn't fixed shortly, I'm contacting the Mass. Attorney General to document my damages as they happen. I encourage you to do the same.

Three weeks of reporting issues with very little resolution. Just band-aids, excuses, and I don't knows. Please fix this! Time is money. There is a reason I decided to use your service and have an email correlated with a website. The professionalism that I intended is being thrown out the window with all of these issues. Having high profile companies in my industry being flagged as SPAM and bounced emails from others! And to top it off I am being asked to ask these clients for the bounce emails that they received. Humiliating and discrediting to my company. Please fix soon so we can both move on. Or I will...

So when will things be corrected? It appears this has been and issue for several days for not only me but others as well, and could not get anyone to answer phone. Either take care of this immediately or will change and expect credit for poor performance.

Edit: I read some of the comments here. It is funny but if you ever get a person on the phone, they actually recommend to take your email elsewhere. Like I am going to have two companies for my website & email... RUN RUN RUN... there are too many good companies out there to waste your time and energy with these losers!!!
