Probably the server is overloaded, down or unreachable because of a network problem, outage or a website maintenance is in progress...

Can't Access Huffington Post - 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 huffpost.com

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.

Does not load or scroll, Too many scripts and too much going on. I hope they can fix this as it is unusable now.

Every time I go to a Huffington Post page, my browser crashes. It only does it for Huffington Post. What's going on?

Mre Dundee · 11 April 2014 - 17:43

Same as everyone else, site refuses to load. Many misguided people are missing out on my guidance.

Dolores DeLutis Gilmore · 10 April 2014 - 09:11

The Comments feature has disappeared and I cannot get satisfactory response from HP.

Bobbie Wertman · 8 April 2014 - 15:45

can't scroll, freezing my computer

John Black · 7 April 2014 - 13:30

Every time I try replying to post the screen freezes

Estelle Schulze · 5 April 2014 - 13:29

Huffington Post is a mess. It's the ONLY website that keeps on freezing on our 3 computers. Two computers run Windows7 and the other one runs Windows 8.1. We have tried all so called "fixes" but nothing helps. I've taken Huffpost out of my favorites. It's not worth the hassle.

Joseph Dorsey · 29 March 2014 - 19:24

I am tired and fed up with HP so I am switching to Yahoo New. It has tons of news to read and I can scroll without any freeze up.

Len Boxwell · 29 March 2014 - 16:43

Thank goodness I'm not the only one. I don't bother with the aol links anymore, if I notice something interesting I Google it and find another site. I thought it was aol trying to drum up business for its computer speed up services. Both my laptop and a library computer are the same.

Corey Sisson · 27 March 2014 - 15:13

Nothing but problems with Huffington Post for months.

Greg Ransone · 20 March 2014 - 16:33

The website is my opinion is way to demanding and with long running script errors on almost every page, I would hope that their web dept would understand how detrimental it is and how the ROI on the jamm packed pages with all the links and ads fail to accomplish what should be their #1 goal... Information Exchange... very unfortunate... I have limited amount of time to grab my information and I like the huff post but just can't go there as it is a waste on my (and by the looks of it here many others) time. As my friend always likes to chime in "too Bad so Sad"

Dee Colonese · 19 March 2014 - 21:31

It is my opinion that HP does not care about its members. I never see an update on when or if HP will be up and running again. I sent them a message weeks ago, never got a reply. I think HP blogging site is gone for good.

Dewi Jones · 18 March 2014 - 00:50

news pages don't scroll, just reloads p1 all the time. so missing 15 news pages. Weird adverts on screen - yesterday for mobile phones on left and right of screen, tday - red roses!! Why?

Scott Scribner · 14 March 2014 - 09:53

Website consistently overpowers all browsers, regardless of system power. Something clearly broken, or site is under denial of service attack.

Noni Sullivan · 13 March 2014 - 14:00

Yes, I have not been able to connect today.

John Brady · 13 March 2014 - 09:07

Have the same problems as listed above. Is the site slow because of all of the ad space taken up?

Cindy McLean · 8 March 2014 - 05:55

Why do I always get this message "Huffington Post can't run due to long running script" I refresh page everyday to try it again and this is what it says for MONTHS now...

Penny J. Brown · 7 March 2014 - 10:04

Cannot scroll any of your articles. What is wrong?

Dee Colonese · 4 March 2014 - 23:32

When will HP be up and running again? Anyone know?

Andie Robin Lazaroff · 4 March 2014 - 02:37

Hasn't been loading on my laptop. Keeps freezing in the rare instance it does load and then I get a message saying Huffington Post has been lost asking if I want to recover the page which is pointless because it only happens again. If I do get a video page to load, it keeps stopping and starting and then turns into a blank green square with sound only.

Dee Colonese · 3 March 2014 - 00:46

I am having problems with Huffington Post on 3 devices, my desk top, my Kindle and my smart phone. What's up HP? It's been days with no access. I see by all the complaints here that I am not ALONE.

Robert Balsley · 1 March 2014 - 09:47

HuffPost is not responding for me on Comcast network

Martha E Fair · 26 February 2014 - 04:41

I can no longer access Huffpost. I am a proud lliberal. Could this be the problem. Right wing sabotage? You tell me.

June Riley · 24 February 2014 - 16:33

so glad its not just me having this problem, thought something was wrong with my lap top, huffington post almost never loads for me with aol

Tobie Barnum-Dunbar · 21 February 2014 - 21:16

Huff Post's new comment format is BUSTED!! Can't make a comment, fave, load new or old comments anymore. Keep getting message that something is wrong with the server and to try again. Everything is stuck. Can't click on anything. Comment section on AOL stories is working fine though. Huff Post has to know based on the low number of comments that something is very wrong with their new format system. Get a clue, Huff Post, and fix this mess!

Leslie Swearingen · 19 January 2014 - 18:55

Everything is crammed together in the center of the page and is totally unreadable. This is the second day it has been like this and it is the only site that is like that.

Drake Durden · 19 January 2014 - 16:38

When looking at aol news sories I put the cursor on it and look below. If it says HuffingtonPost I will not click it. Jerky, unreliable, keeps going back to the beginning when I try to scroll. Forget it!

Ricey Hussein Cassidy · 7 December 2013 - 15:29

12.07.13- Days of not being able to access HP from either my lt or mobile. Wondered last night if they have gone full force against voices of reason as I have been having even positive post and comments in the entertainment section be deleted before going to mods or being posted. It's about 3 or 5 days now. Just had my hubby try from his computer and he too can't get in. He has NEVER posted there so I know it's not me/personal. Looks like "we" have a potential "pay back" from a good geek on our side after HP gave so much cp to the traols over Obamacare and the website problems. I think I will keep this in my head as the possibility makes me smile.

Jim Thomas · 7 December 2013 - 07:06

They either don't want to post alternating views or the website is simply mismanaged.

John Dukes III · 1 December 2013 - 21:07

The page never loads as a graphic page under aol. It briefly shows the usual landing page, but just a quickly morphs into a page of text commands. Started spontaneously a couple of days ago. I have uninstalled aol and reinstalled, and the aol pages and mail work just fine. Black voices was set as my welcome page, but no longer because of this issue.

Santiago Duverge · 19 November 2013 - 05:05

My firewall is blocking huffingtonpost.com due to a virus...

Heidi Slater Monahan · 15 November 2013 - 16:40

any Huffington post, loads up, refreshes, loads up, refreshes, etc...

Gina Betts · 24 October 2013 - 10:19

Main headline pages load, but clicking on any particular story gets the pages only partially loaded and page error notifications from Internet Exployer.

Diane Erckman · 23 October 2013 - 11:10

Cannot scroll down the page - even clicking on the up or down arrow is extremely slow and very jerky. Very frustrating !

Bev Morrison · 12 October 2013 - 05:14

Why can't I scroll through slides - it stops after approx. 10 or 11. Freezes. I've tried different browsers and different computers, same thing.

Bev Morrison · 11 October 2013 - 12:03

How come I can't scroll through pictures, eg. I can't seem to get through more than 11 slides and it just stops, can't get passed it, so frustrating.

Kathie Tietze · 5 September 2013 - 07:35

I'm not able to log in. Can't get any response when I go to their help section to report technical issues, that I'm not able to log in, etc.

James DenBoer · 7 August 2013 - 08:51

Huffpost slideshows never scroll; if I try to get from Slide 1 to Slide 2 huffpost just locks up and I have to go back to Safari and re-open Huffpost

Chuck Johnson · 16 July 2013 - 08:22

Keep getting audio that starts on it's own. You click out of a page and then next thing you know you are hearing audio from the page you have already left, evern when you never activated a video. There is no way to then turn off the audio without turn the audio completely down. You have to click out of the site completely. I resent web sites that "take control" of my computer in this way.

Susan Pomerantz Weiss-Cedillos · 15 July 2013 - 05:51

ever since AOL bought huff post My connection freezes when HUff post comes up on AOL WHY???

Dan Black · 12 July 2013 - 20:58

Add "5min-com" to the Restricted Sites list under Tools/Internet Options/Security to keep the "phantom" audio from playing in the background. (replace the dash with a period)

Marla Limbrecht · 12 July 2013 - 16:06

I'm having trouble at home and work. The title page comes up and then shuts down immediately.

Linda Reynolds · 11 July 2013 - 22:10

This unrelated audio has made reading anything on Hp impossible. What happened? Did the right wing hack it? It has sunk to new lows since aol bought it out. Inane celebrity pieces and horrid "journalistic standards" but this audio is the last nail. Too bad Ariana sold out.

Linda Best Coviello · 11 July 2013 - 18:53

same thing here with the phantom audio - sometimes 3 audios are playing at once, no obvious way to change settings or correct the issue. I spent so many hours trying to troubleshoot this, I am ready to scream. Who handles their website, a 2 year old?

Kelleen Reynolds · 9 July 2013 - 05:10

It's been weeks and 90% of the articles still won't load. All you get is the title and the rest just never loads. Absolutely ridiculous. They need to get their shit together

Diana Noonan · 1 July 2013 - 15:03

How long am I going to have trouble with huffington post this really sucks

Jonathan Martinez · 25 June 2013 - 12:58

HuffPost is not scrolling at the moment on 3 computers 2 mobile devices and 6 browsers each.

Christie Anderson · 25 June 2013 - 12:52

Huffpost is down for me on all browsers. Getting "An error (500 Internal Server Error) has occured in response to this request'

Price Oden · 22 June 2013 - 09:21

Same problem with unrelated, phantom audio that Sharon reported. huffington site is too complex for its own good. While certainly enticing, the problems eventually force you away. I think I'm about done with it.

James Gary · 20 June 2013 - 06:39

I will no longer look at anything pertaining to Huffington post. Every time I try to read anything through this website, my pc freezes. This has been going on for several weeks now. I have to shut down my pc and reboot every time. Huff. Post this is for you. GIVE UP !!! Your website sucks.

Sharon De La Garza · 19 June 2013 - 17:43

also hear unrelated audio, but no accompanying video. not the video on the particular webpage i'm viewing either - something entirely different. this has been happening for a few days now - makes me close certain pages as soon as i open them because it's so annoying.

Kelleen Reynolds · 18 June 2013 - 06:36

I click on a link and the article won't load. Started this yesterday and still won't work. HP is a pain in the butt.

Michael Papagermanos · 10 June 2013 - 11:27

An error (408 Request Timeout) has occured in response to this request.

Scott Timothy Hooper · 26 May 2013 - 10:30

takes forever for the articles to load... very often longer then I want to wait

Yvonne Pennink · 29 March 2013 - 11:35

Unable to log in. Overlapping texts for days. Frontpage shows up practically empty numerous times.

Another problem is a black screen coming up, with far to the left other methods of logging in, such as aol, twitter, facebook, but unaccessible.

Sarah Skilling · 7 February 2013 - 10:22

Huffpost's main page is working but none of the story links are working.

Shelley Seymour · 7 February 2013 - 08:35

Huffington Post keeps going to a link (or one after another) after a few (maybe three-five) seconds.

John Wick · 27 November 2012 - 19:00

Get an An error (500 Internal Server Error) has occured in response to this request. when trying to access the page.

Sarah Dial Primrose · 12 November 2012 - 12:01

Huge FosNow ads appear in all margins; pictures don't load, neither does top screen menu. That's on our Mac OS X 10.7.4 desktop. However, website loads normally on my iPad.

Daniel W. Wilson · 12 November 2012 - 09:51

Same for me. Page comes up, but photos don't. Login link appears to be not functioning at all. Notifications bar is absent.

Robert Marcy · 12 November 2012 - 09:38

Page partially loading, no response to log in, banner to right is wiggly/flashing?. Clear cache, restarted, but no change.

Nathan Richard Sooy · 12 November 2012 - 08:59

Photos are not appearing on Huffington Post and some other aspects of the site are not accessable.

Karla Walton-Turner · 12 November 2012 - 06:38

I can only access it on Internet Explorer and it's very, very slow. It's inaccessible when I use my usual browser (google chrome)

Lillian Marrujo-Duck · 9 November 2012 - 08:44

Huff post menu bar is running crazy down the left hand side.. no menu bar on international editions...

Sarita Manigat · 9 November 2012 - 07:24

It was partial loading for me, and login was not working. Cleared my browser history & cache, and that worked for me.

Pamela Donaldson · 8 November 2012 - 17:23

It's now 5:22pm PST, and I still can't log on and there are still photos etc, missing from website.

Pamela Donaldson · 8 November 2012 - 15:10

can't login or comment, most photos on front page are missing. It's NOT WORKING!!! For hours now.

P.S. I am not getting "access denied" message. I an get to Huffpost, but it's incomplete and I can't login

Jim Nicosia · 8 November 2012 - 07:08

trapped logged in cannot log out. No avatars appear. cannot access profile.

Ruth Augustine · 8 November 2012 - 06:36

Rodger Hartwig · 8 November 2012 - 04:49

Jeane Harrison · 8 November 2012 - 04:30

Cindy McCready Kelleher · 7 November 2012 - 20:23

None of the pictures are loading or the option to view categories such as media, politics, etc. no quick read function.

Magda Ivette Torres · 30 October 2012 - 02:56

Cannot access the huffingtonpost.com today. Last night was working perfectly. Any feeback of what's happening?

Heeky Chad · 30 October 2012 - 02:48

ha ha I rebooted thought my last post got me kicked off the site entirely. whew!

Richard Walker · 30 October 2012 - 02:05

I get "Access Denied" also. Very frustrating. Anyone know what it could be? Can't be the hurricane surely.

Kamini Raghavan · 29 October 2012 - 17:17

Down for me for a few hours. Home page comes up but then when I click to read articles it won't load.

Jacob Devaney · 29 October 2012 - 17:03

www.huffingtonpost.com and www.blogger.huffingtonpost.com not working for me

Stephen Knifest Sharp Kost · 29 October 2012 - 16:49

As a corporation, unless they're not considered as such, they are obligated to demonstrate functionality in the event of a disaster. I would think they are considered a corporation.

Stephen Knifest Sharp Kost · 29 October 2012 - 16:30

Down for me also. I didn't know they had their servers based in NYC.

Chris Morrow · 26 October 2012 - 10:34

cannot access huffingtonpost.com on my laptop from work or at home. It is the only site I have this problem with.

Lucia Malon · 29 September 2012 - 14:00

Every time I go to a Huffington Post page, my browser crashes. It only does it for Huffington Post. What's going on?

Nancy Kuhl · 30 July 2012 - 07:36

Cannot scroll, seems to be a navigation error, no scroll bar to the right and no response to mouse scroll.
