We have tried pinging Internet Movie Database (IMDb) website using our server and the website returned the above results. If imdb.com is down for us too there is nothing you can do except waiting. Probably the server is overloaded, down or unreachable because of a network problem, outage or a website maintenance is in progress...

Can't Access Internet Movie Database (IMDb) - 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.

Having Problems with Accessing Imdb.com?
Jeffrey Mundy · 2 days 6 hours 50 mins ago

IMDB WILL NOT LOAD PAGES PROPERLY

Chirag Bhalla · 4 January 2014 - 10:16

Nothing but 500 Errors right now. Homepage opens though.

El Hilliard · 1 January 2014 - 18:15

Pages not fully loading. Lots of 500 errors. Many actors links thru Actor do not even get an error - they just don't go anywhere. Some actors have a link to Filmography but others don't. Back keys not working (Alt back arrow).

Rodrigo Amaro · 1 January 2014 - 17:51

The actors/personalities pages aren't showing their movie credits. It loads just fine but the credits never show up. Where have they gone to???

Laurie Alfaro · 1 January 2014 - 17:39

Main home page is up, but most subpages are returning 500 Internal Server Error.

Rex Goode · 1 January 2014 - 17:29

Pages not fully loading. Lots of 500 errors.

Cameron Sullivan · 17 December 2013 - 15:16

My account claims to be blocked.

Omar Antonio Figueroa · 11 December 2013 - 12:50

IMDB is down in Los Angeles, CA. This is what I see: Http/1.1 Service Unavailable . Hope they fix the problem. Specially with peoples credits. - The only thing that works at the moment is the main menu.

Paradox · 11 December 2013 - 12:03

Error/Service unavalable on all links except the home page. Lags if anything opens partially at all... from Sofia, Bulgaria.

J. David Blaine · 2 December 2013 - 23:05

IMDB.COM is down in San Diego. No response from URL and ping timed out.

Jammie Ebdao · 15 November 2013 - 06:37

im also having a hard time accesing imdb. hope it will be fixed soon... Manila Philippines

Peter Brian Tantuco · 14 November 2013 - 02:46

Down for me. - Philippines.
oh. you can access it via dns >> http://207.171.162.180/ but the images are not loading though.

John Leister · 13 October 2013 - 05:49

Can't log into my imdb account. Keep getting a pop up saying the page is not found for the login page

Corey Lamb · 12 October 2013 - 07:06

Like others have said.. The Google DNS corrects this.. I updated it in my router & back on IMDB..

Frode Hauge · 12 October 2013 - 06:57

Definitely a DNS issue. As others have suggested, switch to Google's DNS servers (8.8.8.8, and 8.8.4.4) until whatever this is has been fixed.

Subhash Chandra · 12 October 2013 - 06:14

Its a problem with DNS Server i guess, better off posting on imdb twitter page to respond the situation.

Miguel Ribeiro · 12 October 2013 - 04:59

just use the IP:207.171.162.180
or add it to your "hosts" file in windows... (search how to do it in google...)

Robert Gamble · 12 October 2013 - 04:33

imdb has Been down for me for a few days (also not working on my phone), i've just tried changing computer location to another country and it's working fine ! so it must be location specific problem !!

Steve Stone · 12 October 2013 - 04:17

its strange. its working for me and down for my brother. we are together at home! UAE, Dubai

Tim Dickinson · 12 October 2013 - 03:32

Here's a few methods of still getting onto IMDB even with their DNS issues
http://www.techfruit.com/2013/10/11/imdb-com-uk-heres-still-access-site/

James Little · 12 October 2013 - 02:58

Oddly, IMDB and IMDB Pro still down via Sky Broadband in the UK, but both available via Blackberry.

Howard Hull · 12 October 2013 - 00:47

Everyone- if you change your DNS server in internet protocol version 4 (TCP/IPv4) to :

Preferred DNS Server: 8.8.8.8
Alternate DNS Server: 8.8.4.4

This is googles DNS server so you will have no problems.

for those who don't know how to change it : developers.google.com/speed/public-dns/docs/using

Joseph Cassar · 12 October 2013 - 00:43

down for 2 days in Malta. This is all you get Oops! Google Chrome could not find www.imdb.com

Del Engen · 12 October 2013 - 00:41

Down for a couple of days in LA. As an IMDb Pro subscriber, I should be reimbursed.

Steve Dressler · 11 October 2013 - 23:27

IMDB was up about 30 minutes ago. Now it is back down again. It was up when I went directly to the web site. It didn't work when I went thru google.

Michele Wehr · 11 October 2013 - 23:14

Down now in PA... I was on it last night! Is this due to Obama care??? LOL

Stowe Keller · 11 October 2013 - 23:00

Imdb.com has been down for me today in Charlottesville, VA when I attempt access through Embarq, yet others in my area using Comcast are able to reach imdb without problem. I have not had trouble reaching other non-governmental websites.

Michael Norman · 11 October 2013 - 22:57

Definitely down! Even if you use the IP address, it only partially works. BOOO!

Jonathan Strait · 11 October 2013 - 22:22

Down in Los Angeles. Getting word this is an ISP issue. I have Time Warner Cable which apparently many others with issues are using. Anyone with a different ISP having trouble?

Vivienne Bo · 11 October 2013 - 21:20

Does anyone know what the problem is? There is absolutely no news relating to IMDB being down. Why the silence? Why is "isitdownrightnow" reporting there are no issues but hundreds of people over two days have reported it being down? Totally weird

Topher Mesloh · 11 October 2013 - 20:11

the domain name hasn't worked in Seattle in 2 days. But typing in the ip address seems to work ok. 207.171.162.180

Lynda Johnson · 11 October 2013 - 19:10

IMDb has been down here in NJ (US) since yesterday morning. I'm going through withdrawals. I gotta have my IMDb. (sigh)

Curtis Scott Bynon · 11 October 2013 - 18:48

Down again wow this was just up about 20 min ago now it;s down again in Pa what is going on with this site anyway

Ira Liss · 11 October 2013 - 17:29

Down in Los Angeles accessed via web, mobile browser and their app. Used Safari and Firefox on a MacBook and and Safari and the app on an iPhone.

Nasia Voulieri · 11 October 2013 - 17:10

Still down, here in Greece, since last night! Will not load on either chrome, firefox or ie!

Tom Martin · 11 October 2013 - 16:43

I was able to get in using the IP address a couple of other people have posted: http://207.171.162.180. But I cannot log in or post anything. But, a lot of people still are and nobody seems to be mentioning any problems on the IMDB pages I just visited. Very strange.

Bob Cartmell · 11 October 2013 - 16:42

Down for 48hrs with a short spell (maybe an hour or so) in the middle when all worked!

Robert Denard · 11 October 2013 - 14:53

This is interesting. After the troubleshooting with my ISP, I unpaused Kaspersky (KIS13) and tried to enter the IP of IMDB. KIS blocked it as a phishing URL. I told KIS to ignore it and IMDB loaded. Still can't load IMDB with imdb.com though.

David Cox · 11 October 2013 - 13:45

www.isitdownrightnow.com/how-to/setup-opendns-or-google-dn... This worked for me do the steps and restart firefox or whatever browser you use.

Janelle Nutter · 11 October 2013 - 13:34

It's been down for me since last night, both on my desktop and mobile device. Also, I live in Cleveland, if that makes a difference.

Annelise McQuay · 11 October 2013 - 13:22

No issues for me in downtown Los Angeles using Firefox on my computer. I can also access it on my phone.

Rukia Rahman · 11 October 2013 - 12:40

IMDB is still down in the UK and has been like this since yesterday. Right now I've checked and Firefox can't find the server at www.imdb.com.

Corinne L Rhoades · 11 October 2013 - 12:30

the thing that is so cool is that we are 'here' from all over the planet! Hi! from Idaho's capital!.. been down for 2 days now.

Victoria Mullen · 11 October 2013 - 12:25

Down in Grand Rapids, MI now. I'm thinking the big overhaul is experiencing difficulties.

Alric Knebel · 11 October 2013 - 12:21

I am in Biloxi, Mississippi, and I can not access IMDb, and it's been this way since yesterday morning. I called my son, in the city next door, and he can't get it to open either. I wasn't even aware until today that this could even happen, some sites available and others not.

C. Chaya Khan · 11 October 2013 - 11:58

Finally up in San Diego, CA. Looks like they've been coding a major site overhaul. The layout's very different.

Jakmar Entretenimiento · 11 October 2013 - 11:57

Was down last 2 days. Just fixed it following the DNS instructions. Thanks! www.isitdownrightnow.com/how-to/setup-opendns-or-google-dn...

Line Mereta Petersen · 11 October 2013 - 11:44

ofc its down, like most everything in USA is atm. More will be shut down over the next month or so in preperation for whatever they are about to do, have a feeling even FB and other comunication sites etc will be forced offline as well soon:l

Craig Schiller · 11 October 2013 - 11:09

It's up and down for me; I was apparently able to post a discussion comment about half an hour ago, but then immediately switched back to "unreachable" and haven't been able to verify whether my comment actually posted or not.

Rey Palustre · 11 October 2013 - 11:02

Down in Los Angeles the last 2 days. Tried enabling cookies but still doesn't work.

Geoff Lutz · 11 October 2013 - 10:46

I did the DNS change recommendation, and IMDB is working for me now!! Hope it helps others.

Diana Logg · 11 October 2013 - 10:39

It's down for me on both Chrome and IE, and so I went hunting for an answer. Found this site. I like it here.

Elwin Ransom · 11 October 2013 - 10:09

Switched to the free Google DNS servers - 8.8.8.8 as primary and 8.8.4.4 as alternative - and now I can get on. Thanks!

Manjula-Jayne Kumar · 11 October 2013 - 10:08

Definitly down in the UK. Error Message: Firefox can't find the server at www.imdb.com.

Stephen Silverstein · 11 October 2013 - 09:47

Amazon is working fine in the UK but IMDB seems to have messed up its servers. The quickest workaround is to use Tor - for those who know what that is.

Chovjek Bez Fejsa · 11 October 2013 - 09:21

you can use some proxy site like hidemyass.com to access it if it doesn't work in your country.

Het cadeau-lied is niet van mij · 11 October 2013 - 08:47

Davorin's tip about DNS: I don't think I can do this with wifi network on laptop - wifi network properties do not give options?

Marco Schutte · 11 October 2013 - 08:32

24 hours ago down for me, now it's up for me. I think IMDB has some kind of maintenance, so that certain DNS servers can't connect to IMDB. (Like my own ISP's DNS servers 24 hours ago). I don't know how it happens, but I can tell you three solutions: 1. Use your nieghbours wifi. 2. Use a proxy server (like the Stealthy add-on for Firefox) 3. Change your DNS server in your internet settings; to the Google Public DNS (8.8.8.8).

Eileen Bradley · 11 October 2013 - 08:17

cannot access imdb pro or website since yesterday. been on phone for hours with provider time warner, they can't figure it out... friends near by can access it. sent emails to them no response, and god knows they don't have a tel. # to call . i'm glad its not just me

Michael Donnelly · 11 October 2013 - 08:08

changed dns settings on pc as posted earlier. can now access imdb. thanks

Dez Read · 11 October 2013 - 07:25

This works anonymouse.org/cgi-bin/anon-www.cgi/www.imdb.com

Iwona K · 11 October 2013 - 07:14

I have tried to get on IMDB from chrome and fire fox as well as my iPad and nothing has worked for the last 6h or so

Davorin Jurisic · 11 October 2013 - 06:45

another set of dns servers: use.opendns.com/#win7

Tue Sorensen · 11 October 2013 - 06:41

Down for me since yesterday. A catastrophe, as I practically *live* there! None of my friends seem to be affected. What the hell is going on??

Marshall Lee Quentel · 11 October 2013 - 06:40

IMDB is Back...

Changed DNS Servers to Googles Public DNS Servers as suggested by Davorin Jurisisc. Used directions Here:

developers.google.com/speed/public-dns/docs/using#testing

Driton Zhubi · 11 October 2013 - 05:24

Thanks Davorin, it started working as soon as I changed the DNS parameters.

Tijmen Vinke · 11 October 2013 - 05:23

The solution/work around given by Davorin Jurisic worked for me! Thanks.. The Netherlands

Howard Hull · 11 October 2013 - 05:21

Thanks Davorin (8.8.8.8 as primary and 8.8.4.4 as alternative). After I changed the dns server in my tcp/ip v4 settings imdb started working again. It works for me now

Richard Corkran · 11 October 2013 - 05:12

Haven't been able to reach IMDB for 2 days now. PC or iPhone - 3G. In North Carolina.

Davorin Jurisic · 11 October 2013 - 05:08

There might be something wrong with isp's dns servers. use google's dns servers (8.8.8.8 as primary and 8.8.4.4 as alternative). After I changed the dns server in my tcp/ip v4 settings imdb started working again.

Remko Zuidema · 11 October 2013 - 04:40

Down in Holland also. So this site tells us that imdb.com if online, but seeing all the prost its clearly offline.

Michael Q. Schmidt · 11 October 2013 - 02:09

Related company Amazon works for me in Southern California... but even after following all suggestions for clearing DNS and cache, and using either Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, of Firefox, IMDB is "not found". So despite this website declaring "Our test passed without any errors however 38 users have reported problems in the last few hours"... I see far more than 38 reporting problems. Is uspect they are suffering another Denial of Service attack.

Jennifer Páez Cáceres · 11 October 2013 - 01:07

Down in California... Been trying to get on for a couple of hours, thought it was my app, but on my laptop now, can't even get to the home page on my laptop browser.

Margaret Horrax · 10 October 2013 - 20:53

It has been down in New Zealand for 12 hours now. Are there any notifications from any sources?

Em Warr · 10 October 2013 - 20:30

I think it's safe to say that the website is experiencing technical difficulties... hasn't worked all day. Ottawa - Ontario

Erik A. Williams · 10 October 2013 - 19:52

The IMDb staff have continually taken advantage of their users by continually and knowingly going against their own policies and guidelines. They practice age discrimination by disallowing talent to remove their birth date. They maliciously remove content from talent pages as well as title pages and/or disallow names and titles from going through if they decide a talent has "rubbed them the wrong way." They refuse to update events and awards even for highly-respected events. They refuse to add "web series" as a title type even though streaming media is becoming the new TV. These are only a few of numerous indecencies Col Needham and the IMDb staff continue to perpetrate. They will not get away with it. That's why the site is currently down in these places. #OccupyIMDb

Marshall Lee Quentel · 10 October 2013 - 18:59

still down in Bozeman Montana at 8 PM MST. It has been down for over 3 hours here.

Mike Breyer · 10 October 2013 - 17:27

The site has been down in West Hollywood all day. Great for rankings!

Eric Douglas · 10 October 2013 - 17:17

Is there any way to check what is going on, rather than just saying it is down? Anyone have any real news?

Stevie Nice · 10 October 2013 - 16:39

Down in NY at 7:38. Access had been spotty all day, now it's just not coming up at all.

Jim R Terry Jr · 10 October 2013 - 15:15

It has been down since 8am this morning. Still down as of 3pm this afternoon.

Leon Harris · 10 October 2013 - 15:15

Yep I can't access the site either from London UK, it's been at least 3 hours since I first checked. Wonder what happened?

LouiseandJohn's Beattie · 10 October 2013 - 14:19

Been up and down intermittently today. So hopefully just a server maintenance/problem.

Alice Swartz · 10 October 2013 - 14:09

10th error message in a row: "Oops! Google Chrome could not find www.imdb.com" on an otherwise blank page.

Janet Kemper Long · 10 October 2013 - 12:06

Still down in Ohio, google chrome says "Oops! Google Chrome could not find imdb.com". We are tired of the shutdowns here in the USA lol!

Codrin Darius Ilana · 10 October 2013 - 11:33

Andrew McGivern · 9 February 2013 - 18:41

Most trailer videos are not playing (black screen only) for independent short films. This includes private screeners that are supposed to be available to film fests through withoutabox. Down since at least yesterday. No response from message to withoutabox as yet.
