Can't Access Kongregate - 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.

John Fowler · 5 April 2014 - 05:38

When using CHROME or FIREFOX :

Oops. Something’s broken.
KongBot offered his arm to fix it. Not sure if it’ll work though. In the meantime, try refreshing or return to the homepage. Please email feedback@kongregate.com if the problem persists. Thanks!

Ashley Bond · 23 February 2014 - 03:10

Lasse Ahrenkiel · 21 February 2014 - 03:57

Logan Fele-Slaferek · 19 February 2014 - 11:02

It's down right now, with the message:

Yikes. We’re experiencing some heavy load right now.
We are currently reviving KongBot to get the site back up. Please stay tuned.

Kyle Sears · 11 February 2014 - 17:26

its been weeks now still cant get on kong could someone please tell me how to get back on

Michael Faber · 21 December 2013 - 15:18

I can log on to Kong, but The game of thrones Ascent just sits at the loading screen. I cleared the cookies and cache and tried to play on both IE and Chrome. I also am hearing the start of a WallMart ad that runs for about 7 sec.

Brian Zol · 20 November 2013 - 19:05

any browser, stays stuck on the kong homepage if it even makes it their

Christopher Graham · 9 September 2013 - 11:57

If i try to do anything on the site at all it just keeps reloading the homepage.

Geoff Roe · 1 August 2013 - 02:09

Unable to load the webpage because the server sent no data. Error code: ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE

Geoff Roe · 1 August 2013 - 02:05

i cant get into kongregate atm whats up 1/8/13 2100 New zealand time

Mike Beaton · 29 June 2013 - 14:40

just keep refreshing the game page.. the overloaded screen is because of the masses that are trying to reconnect atm

Mike Beaton · 29 June 2013 - 14:36

If you're getting the overloaded screen keep refreshing you will get in eventually... chat and achievements are still down though

Mike Beaton · 29 June 2013 - 12:53

Latest update from Kong:

Our engineers are doing what they can, but the problem might be outside of our control right now. Hoping that whoever has it down can get it back up and running again. Hang in there!

Jared Adkins · 29 June 2013 - 12:23

wow how interesting... My chat reloaed with guest in the main room... but I appear to have been silenced... wonder if its the admins working

Oscar Garcia · 29 June 2013 - 12:21

Kongregate had a message saying the site was dwon for now.. the site was overloaded.. reviving Kongbot...

Liam McLoughlin · 29 June 2013 - 12:17

Even though kongregate is my favorite gaming site I rated it 1 star because of all the errors

John Smith · 29 June 2013 - 12:13

404 Does not mean the web page is deleted, kong is doing a server maintenance. The site will probably be up shortly.

Nynaeve Sedai · 29 June 2013 - 12:11

They responded on FB that they're working on it, no indication as how long it will take.

Jared Adkins · 29 June 2013 - 11:57

Wonder if the DNS fix will work... Do know if you lost chat but were playing on a multiplayer... such as dreamworld you will be still able to play since kong does not host mulitplayer servers.

Amie Bone · 29 June 2013 - 11:48

The 404 or Not Found error message is a HTTP standard response code indicating that the client was able to communicate with the server, but the server could not find what was requested.

The web site hosting server will typically generate a "404 Not Found" web page when a user attempts to follow a broken or dead link; hence the 404 error is one of the most recognizable errors users can find on the web.[1]

A 404 error should not be confused with "server not found" or similar errors, in which a connection to the destination server could not be made at all. A 404 error indicates that the requested resource may be available again in the future; however, the fact does not guarantee the same content.

Mike Beaton · 29 June 2013 - 11:47

I am still playing the game I was in before it went down though... won't be closing that tab for a while

Kevin Gauthier · 29 June 2013 - 11:46

don't work for me too.. I tried anything and always a 404 error page

Mike Beaton · 29 June 2013 - 11:45

nobody knows as of yet... went from getting a site not responding error to a 404 though

Jonathan Hume · 29 June 2013 - 11:42

Dude what is going on? Why am I getting 404 error? Did the site get deleted?

Mike Beaton · 29 June 2013 - 11:40

tried tweeting them and msging on facebook but no response yet or updates on those pages to explain the problem

Joshua Patillo · 29 June 2013 - 11:35

keeps giving me 404 not found on chrome for like 20 minutes now any clue?

Max ThaKiller · 27 April 2013 - 19:02

for me is down every time i bout to play a game in SAS Zombie Assault 3 return my page to main screen over again over again.. is annyoing guys what i do ?? but in matters facts why this happening to everyones in their games as well...

Paul Homer · 11 April 2013 - 14:40

I just got one of these when i tried to connect to Kong. Error 324 (net::ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE)

David LaCoste · 3 March 2013 - 13:32

As of right now, Kongregate won't let me sign in. I type in my user and pass, but it sends me to a page full of coding. ie: user_pass_"null"
All of the "answers" to the coding are changed to "null".
I try to register, same thing. I try to register with Facebook, same damn thing. What's going on?

Muhammad Islam · 6 February 2013 - 02:39

kogregate is not down but i am receiving pages with no images(broken) and blue links on the left and texts on the right, while clicking on the links the game don't appear, only texts and blue links with white background

Bobbi Kilburn-Winnie · 16 November 2012 - 16:54

Yoshka: Due to the internet issues I had, rebooting my "box" was inevitable. Still didn't solve the issue then and it's not going to work for everyone. But fortunately, it is back up for me... for now, and I didn't reboot.

Yoshka Tristan Dupont-mclovin · 16 November 2012 - 13:43

Reboot of my box solved it, sometimes it's better to stick to the simple solutions

Blake Stocker · 16 November 2012 - 12:33

A lot simpler and safer solution to this is to use a public DNS server like GoogleDNS or OpenDNS, instead of editing the host file.


Adrian Josip Kević · 16 November 2012 - 10:38

I cleared DNS cache. Kongregate still doesn't work on my home computer, works at work though. Any other change results in me not connecting to the Internet at all.

Bobbi Kilburn-Winnie · 16 November 2012 - 10:17

Still down in Indiana. Our IP had issues and our internet was down for a bit, but Kong's been down a few hours before our issue. I know my way inside files and I am not comfy with editing my host file. The does go to Kong, but anyone knows you can MAKE it look legit. Hopefully they will post something about it somewhere.

Alan Sugar · 16 November 2012 - 09:43

down for me in the UK. i've tried the fixes suggested and i've got to kongregate.com and i can only get 1 of my games to work.. all the rest are in a permanent 'loading game' state :(

Scot Quaranda · 16 November 2012 - 09:18

Still down for me, when I checked DNS problems looks like Atlanta and BellSouth are still down.

Meghan Davis · 16 November 2012 - 09:16

Im getting the google hate on it as well.. Which sucks cause that site is what I use to pass my day by D= now I have nothing but homework...

David Massey · 16 November 2012 - 08:27

Kongregate is still down for me also. This is probably related to your ISP provider, and no other "fix" will work to connect. I've tried everything. If you have charter for internet service... this is what you get...

Cindy Tischner · 16 November 2012 - 07:56

i keeps saying the page can not be found? so im having the same problem

Chris Pinch · 16 November 2012 - 07:40

@ Kiss Ádám Ive done the file change and its sort of worked as people have been saying I can get on and have sent a message to Kong, whether they can do anything i dont know, but chat and games wont load fully some of them get part way and then it says it cant play on my browser which is rubbish so atm im a bit stuck...

Dean J Currie · 16 November 2012 - 07:39

im in Canada and my kongs been down for 2 days. I cleared cache and still nothing :(

Kiss Ádám · 16 November 2012 - 06:20

A little bit of explanation:

DNS - dns servers are like a dictionary - they translate domain names, like kongregate.com to IP address, so your computer can connect to them. Whenever u type in an url in your browser, it first connects to a DNS server to find out the IP address, then connects to the server based on that address. The problem is, kongregate.com was somehow removed from this dictionary, so your browser cant find the IP, so it cant connect to it.

Most OS has a built-in dictionary, similar to a DNS server (Windows has it, Linux too, dont know about OS X). In Windows, this is the host file, so by adding the lines i wrote below, u can replace the DNS server, but


Dont trust random ppl when they tell u to edit ur hosts file (like me)! It can be used to steal your passwords and private data!!!

If u still want go for it, first google the IP address (, and make sure its valid (in this case, its associated with kongregate)! I got these addresses from googling "kongregate.com ip".

Why is it possible that it works from one PC and not from the other? Thats because browsers dont like to look up the IP address every time u visit the site. Instead, they look it up every once in a while, and store the address for the site. So if ur browser still remembers the ip for kongregate.com, it will work.

ps: i have no idea why games dont work for some ppl, so far every game i tried worked for me

Stephan Juvik · 16 November 2012 - 05:49

Did as Ale and Kiss said. I can now access the site, but the games are not working. I'm from Norway.

Marco Fallani · 16 November 2012 - 05:39

It's absolutely wierd, it actually works from my computer at work but not from mine at home... I can't understand why!

Zack Martin · 16 November 2012 - 05:25

still down and the fix that people post assume that everyone has a windows pc, I'm on a mac

Steven Zeus Japlit Baligod · 16 November 2012 - 04:47

still down in the philippines and its already 3-4 days down we already spent money one the game im playing now :(

Benedikt Bröcker · 16 November 2012 - 04:17

cant connect since yesterday, now its say the server is up but i still cant connect :-(

Chris Pinch · 16 November 2012 - 03:19

Finally got it to work after several days I've sent a message to Kong and will post thier response. I not posting this to con people it really does work but I dont know whether it does anything malicious to the comp im no expert... as people have said open notepad as admin open the host file paste the code with each numbered section on a new line and dont do as I did and put in # as it wont work XD do that and for me it really did work hope this helps and we will see what Kong says in response...

Amor Aeternum · 16 November 2012 - 01:44

Try to reset, restart your internet ! It functioned for me. It was not MY DNS but the DNS of my internet box who need to be cleared. (Not a total reset, just to put it off and then on)

Chris Hund · 15 November 2012 - 23:25

it was down in germany for 2 days... now the site is loading... greets

Danny Kay · 15 November 2012 - 23:16

Says it's up on two sites, but I can't get to it. I get "Oops! Google Chrome could not find www.kongregate.com". And clearly other people are having issues too, so I'm not sure why it keeps saying it's up.

SungEon Kim · 15 November 2012 - 22:05

I can access the site after fixing hostfile - can show badges and all.. But it doesn't load any flash.. or even kong chat. Both multiplayers and single players... Anyone knows why and how to fix this one?

Sohalia Senn · 15 November 2012 - 20:54

It's been down for me all day. I'm hesitant to try the host fix since if the DNS changes again then it won't work...

Dawn Marie · 15 November 2012 - 20:32

If you want to make this work follow these step by step intructions.

1. open notepad as administrator (**VERY IMPORTANT**)

2. open C:windows/system32/drivers/ect/hosts (you may have to change your view from txt. to all files)

3. copy and paste this under the last line in this file. www.kongregate.com kongregate.com cdn1.kongregate.com cdn2.kongregate.com cdn3.kongregate.com cdn4.kongregate.com

4.save and it should work now, however it wont let you save unless you open notepad as admin.

Rachael Haney · 15 November 2012 - 20:17

Website is still down and has been all day! I've tried multiple browsers, wireless connection places, etc.

Nineblades Ofice · 15 November 2012 - 19:31

It's still down for me as well... is the server itself down? Is there some program blocking it from going there? I can access a catched copy of kongregate but of course it does not continue working and all the lines are text no pictures or anything. Some reponse on why it's not working would be appreciated

Rebecca Chao · 15 November 2012 - 19:12

Still messed up for me. Was working on someone else's internet/laptop though.

Jonny Keith Warren · 15 November 2012 - 19:05

Still down in Tennessee - Does anyone know where Kongregate would make an official statement about this?

Cassie Annie Joy · 15 November 2012 - 19:01

Tired numerous times today. Tried on all different browsers on different computers. Disabled the firewall and such. Still nothing. .-.

Mike Baker · 15 November 2012 - 18:42

Editing host file works. Haven't found a single game not accessible yet after modifying it

Matt Morgan · 15 November 2012 - 16:34

im also from Nova scotia canada and the site is definitely not working here for me

Tyler Frantz · 15 November 2012 - 15:51

well maybe they are upgrading the site or maybe it just overloaded the server anyway will probably be another day before it starts working

Tyler Frantz · 15 November 2012 - 14:19

Down here in Oklahoma to D: says it can't find kongregate not sure if that's just mine or if everyone is saying that

Eve Gagne · 15 November 2012 - 12:21

I changed the host and I can now access Kongregate but the games don't work :(

Sadie Masterson · 15 November 2012 - 11:38

I removed the host file addition and it's working just fine, and I live in NW USA. Hope those who are struggling can finally join.

David Massey · 15 November 2012 - 11:09

The website is not working in the US, even with hosts file modifications, dns cache flush, etc. etc. Good thing I wasted all this time when I could have been doing something productive instead of trying to get the website to work...

Stefan Budes · 15 November 2012 - 10:18

Should be working without editing any hosts file. It's just back up.

James Jones · 15 November 2012 - 10:14

i must be missing somethig still getting a cannot connect page pls help.

James Jones · 15 November 2012 - 09:38

kong is still down to me, can not find page and i donot understand how to use host file, can someone please explain to me?

Jari Nieminen · 15 November 2012 - 08:54

Host file thing not working for me :( After that it at least download something on the page, but I can't play anything. Hi from Finland!! :)

Jim Monk · 15 November 2012 - 07:49

It is not something that Kong can fix. It is a DNS problem. Your PC can't resolve "www.kongregate.com" to an ip address. The hostfile fix gets round this by removing DNS from the equation. The problem is that if Kong ever changes it's IP again it will stop working for people with host file entries. See www.dnsvalidation.com/kongregate.com for details of the DNS issue...

Sadie Masterson · 15 November 2012 - 07:33

I followed what Kiss and Ale posted to get kongregate up and running and it works. Now I don't know about any other game then Swords and Potions, but frankly that is all I want. It's simple to follow if you know anything about computer, but those of you who wait, I hope it's up soon.

Kenjamin Bett · 15 November 2012 - 07:22

@Herman Bemyonly Valentine works for me but my browser still cannot connect to kong server

Herman BemyonlyValentine · 15 November 2012 - 07:12

guys just do the host file. it works www.kongregate.com kongregate.com cdn1.kongregate.com cdn2.kongregate.com cdn3.kongregate.com cdn4.kongregate.com

Nikos Pagdatis · 15 November 2012 - 07:07

all other sites fix the prb with servers in 5 min and in kong do a month... noob american technicals... go play you birds

Kenjamin Bett · 15 November 2012 - 05:20

11/15/2012 Server Maintenance @ 4:00 AM EST. says it when u serch for today and kongregate server... still sucks that they take so long... hope they will give the players some free stuff for waiting all day long xD

Alexandru Chirila · 15 November 2012 - 05:00

not working at all in italy right now... and i really dont think its us...

Kyla Meserve · 15 November 2012 - 04:26

And it's still down for me, a few hours later. Earlier, it would partially load the page, but none of the scripts worked right. Now it's back to not being found at all.

Sandokan Sincere · 15 November 2012 - 04:05

I can not load kongregate home page or any games at all right now, i am from Czech republic

Kalmár Tibor · 15 November 2012 - 03:52

It's intermittent, sometimes you can load the game and the chat, sometimes only parts of the page. But it looks like it's on the way to get better. I agree, the hosts file editing makes no sense in this case.

Lorraine Dearie · 15 November 2012 - 03:30

it's down 11.30am GMT, not going to try hostfile thing when i've no idea what it does, some answers from kong themselves would be helpful

Jim Monk · 15 November 2012 - 03:13

It defiantly seems that Kong has dropped off of all DSN servers, I am not going to edit my host file just to get there. With luck it should re-propagate over the next 48 hrs...

François Toromanoff · 15 November 2012 - 02:48

I still can't reach kongregate... I tired all morning and after getting a google message like "Google can't access kongregate.com" i now get a white page where few links appeared. But still not able to do anything...

Emp Dong · 15 November 2012 - 02:48

Modifying the host file did not work for me. The site loads but none of the game links work so it's pointless. Hopefully they will fix it soon :/

Ale Castaño · 15 November 2012 - 02:47

Hey, Kongregate is up we are getting the problem. With some effort i can fix it (thanks to Kiss Ádám). You have to edit your hostfile and add: www.kongregate.com kongregate.com cdn1.kongregate.com cdn2.kongregate.com cdn3.kongregate.com cdn4.kongregate.com

If you don't know how to edit your hostfile, just check this guide: helpdeskgeek.com/windows-7/windows-7-hosts-file/ If you have any other issues, pm in facebook. And if i have some grammar mistake it's because i don't speak english :P

Justin Lewis · 15 November 2012 - 02:18

still down all white shows options but nothing works lol pissin me off

Kiss Ádám · 15 November 2012 - 02:05

type into your host file: www.kongregate.com kongregate.com cdn1.kongregate.com cdn2.kongregate.com cdn3.kongregate.com cdn4.kongregate.com

ur welcome

Kevinlong Lastingchong · 15 November 2012 - 01:51

kongregate should fix soon because lots of people buy for kongregate games shouldnt kong be sued? or javelin or someone?

Kyla Meserve · 15 November 2012 - 01:33

Oops! Google Chrome could not find www.kongregate.com

That's what I get whenever I go to the site. I think it went down after your most recent ping.

Jim Monk · 15 November 2012 - 01:11

Seems to be a DNS issue as google's public dns ( can't resolve it

Omeed Sala Hassani · 15 November 2012 - 00:49

Still down 5:00P.M. ): i wish i can play realm of the mad god in kongregate

James Thompson · 27 August 2012 - 05:38
