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

Error 503 No healthy backends

Just a while ago it was "up" but all pages give a "No healthy backends" error - seems like a disk error and failed redundancy.

Now it's slow as molasses and loading a page takes 30 seconds...

wow same thing happened to their payment server the other day for 7 hours. The project I was funding was on its second to last day and still needed 700, 000 dollars. Luckily it came back up in time and we funded, but KS said they would not give us our 7 hours back. I really think KS needs to start adding to projects time when the site goes down. I hope no project fails to fund because of this!
