Can't Access Hot Topic - 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.

Hottopic is not loading for me and the tee shirts that are supposed to be 10 dollars are appearing as regular price. Also, the 25 percent off is showing regular price as well

@Kristina, is something wrong with hottopic? You're missing out on some rad high heels and cute ass sailor moon shirts (given that you're a sailor moon fan but it's all cool if you're not). But the heels.

It freezes when I try to view my cart or login, but I can surf main pages fine? I've been at this over an hour and I can go on any other webpages.

When I remove a item from my cart, or attempt to, I get a message saying "JSP_EXECUTION_FAILED"
