We have tried pinging Imgur website using our server and the website returned the above results. If imgur.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 Imgur - 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 i.imgur.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.

Okay, so over the past months I've had nothing but problems with Virgin Media UK. Any other VM UK customers listen up. I've been performing tests on name resolution, routing, and general service from virgin media since I signed up and started experiencing problems. I suggest all VM UK customers having issues with DNS and bad pings (the time it takes for a packet to reach a server and back again) to complain. I believe Virgin have bitten off more than they can chew and are providing less than 'OK' service to most of their customers. - This appears to be an issue UK wide, but for VM customers only. I've changed my DNS servers to Googles 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 and the issue is still present. Virgin appear to be routing alot of their traffic to Europe and then back to the UK which is unaccaptable. Imgur will no doubt be back online for us in a few hours but the service provided is horrific and should be brought up with our ISP. If you need any help with diagnosing faults, hit me up.

talk talk only problem it seems.

Aaron Mendi · 11 May 2016 - 12:46
· · Chrome 50.0 on Windows

This has happened before in 2013-2014. It's to do with TT having a partnership with the IWF who monitor popular sites for illegal porn and such. TT was supposed to fix their filters to only target the images after blanket blocking Imgur back in 2014 but as usual it looks like they did bugger all to fix anything.

Been down for me for almost a day now. It's making using reddit impossible. Since it seems like it works for the vast majority of other people i'd say it probably has something to do with my ISP which is TalkTalk. Anyone else on TT and suffering this issue?
