Can't Access Lycos - 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.

Allen, Yes the same thing happened to me! my account with lycos is set to auto-renew but apparently they did not pay it to registrar and now i have to pay them directly to get my site up again... but not able to get auth code to transfer antoher host as lycos is down and not responding... this has been an incredibly frustrating fiasco!! ...

Danger Signs? My domain site's registration renewal fell due during the outage and as Lycos didn't pay it on time my site shows an expiry notice. Despite requesting action three days ago I have had no response. The result is my site has been inaccessible using my domain name for six days through the mistakes and inactions of Lycos..

I can't tell you what to do but I am in the middle of a domain transfer to the company that hosts my website. I can't take the risk anymore and I do not like not having a warning or communication from them. It lso scares me that they are in India now and also filed bankrupcy. I can see a server going down for a few hours but 3-4 days without websites up and running is nuts. That's my two cents and I wish you all the best!

Feeling optimistic hearing that other sites are coming back online. Today was the first day that I was able to login to Lycos Domains. Everything looks 'normal' there and I'm able to login to my domain email, however it stops at last Wednesday and nothing new. I'm wondering what people are seeing when they enter their web site name into a browser? I am getting the message of "related links" and when I use this site ( it says that my site " is PARKED. The website is either expired or listed for sale"... Has anyone else experience these things prior to their site coming back up?

I agree Bryan Ryley, I am done as well. This has/is a nightmare but I feel better having initiated a transfer and have a new domain that I can at least get online to and send customers somewhere. I have had my old domain for over 10 years though and it would be huge retail hit if it has to go down altogether. I am thinking Tucows will comply (by law they have to?) so hoping.

To those of you posting any type of valid contact information for Tucows, lawyers, CSC, etc. - thank you!

I have opened an account with, and asked them about transferring my domain FIRST. They said there are specific steps in doing that, and there is information that you need from your current registrar in order to implement the transfer. And even if you get that, it will take 7 days for the transfer to complete. In light of this, I bought a new domain. IF I'm able to access my old domain, I will use it to refer clients to my new domain and web site.

For those of you who have sites built with Trellix ... does support FTP transfers and Trellix. They are located in Iillinois, and they have a customer service number where you can talk to a REAL PERSON. I built a couple of web sites on their server for clients using their more-updated version of Trellix. Those sites have NEVER been down, and the customer service dept usually is very fast and efficient in solving any issues you might have. IF you have a backup of your site using Trellix, I would seek them out. Even their basic package comes with a free domain address for 1 year. The disk space is more limited than the Lycos packages were but, if you have a basic 6-8 page web site, you should be fine. Domain mail is also included.

I learned recently after there was a problem with my domain name being renewed that lycos isn't a registrar but works with 3 different registrars that actually host our domains.

"2.5.2 Registrar Terms and Conditions. Lycos Domains will use one of three Registrars for your Domain Name: Melbourne IT Limited, Co., or, Inc. The choice of Registrar will be determined in accordance with the paragraphs immediately below. For the avoidance of doubt, the Registrar for your Domain Name will be identified on your domain management page."

If you can determine which registrar lycos uses for your domain maybe you can contact them and see what can be done.

As others have said, open a ticket with tucows compliance I spoke with Tucows, They said there is a way to transfer domains if the provider (lycos) is unresponsive.

Well, that was three days ago. I contacted tucows who is the registrar for lycos and they gave me a compliance email address If everyone will send a support ticket email to them, perhaps collectively we can get something from lycos other than their front page where now they're trying to sell us wearable something or other. If they can post that, they can post something telling us what's going on.

Lycos email has been out of action since 2100GMT Wednesday 15 June (that's the time of the last email I received). The message on has been unchanged for 48 hours, mentioning an upgrade and promising to be 'back in a few hours'. However, from news items it seems the Indian company that owns Lycos (Ybrant Digital) may be in financial trouble, and my attempts to contact it by phone and email have failed.

CSC is the company that sells webspace to lycos and even they can't get a definitive answer. check out whois lycos and the poor guy who used to work for them is still listed as their admin. there's no way to reach them by email or phone. now they have a front page that says back In a few hours, but that's days and still nothing. If I could use another company, I would. My problem is that my website builder program is Trellix. I have the whole thing on my computer, BUT after a lot of searching for a long time, I was only able to find Lycos Tripod to host and publish the site. Anyone have any ideas?
I have called CSC and spoken with Jennifer and emailed with Monica Doucette. Monica handles the lycos account. She says she has spoken (or emailed) with her "contact " at Lycos and they are "working on it." All I know is, it seems Lycos is leaving a lot of us in the lurch and if I had another place to take my business to publish Trellix, I would. This lack of communication on the part of Lycos is unconscionable.

The above link may help some of you. Place any URL into its search engine and it will display the said website as it appeared from days/months/years gone by. What you can do from there is right click anywhere on the desired website, and "view source," to copy its HTML. This method has helped me in the past, at times, retrieve an old layout style, deleted text, photo, etc. It won't fix our current issues with Lycos/Angelfire, etc, but might help someone out there.

Lycos/Tripod is down for eveyone I know who has a website or other service with that company. It's not just for me or for a few. They cannot be reached in any way that I know of.

The quesrion is, were they hacked or did the company go under? What happened?

Yes, I see that there is some progress being made, but I'm wondering what my site is going to look like when the data transfer is done. I still have my site built on a customizable Trellix template. I wonder if the new server is going to support those, or my site will be total crap when everything comes back up... If I have to start over, I'm going someplace else.

My website is down with angelfire being down. Have been a paid user for years. Just got a notification that they will be billing me. Hopefully that means I will at least have time to make backups of my pages!

Looks like their home page was updated and has a scrolling format and also says they are upgrading.

I have been a customer of Lycos since the 90's - been with them through good times and bad ... this is by far the worst encounter yet. I almost left them about 5 months ago when it became increasingly difficult to get a response and when domain issues started happening.

Has anyone had problems with weird messages from Melbourne - in the form of your website is about to expire etc - when I contacted both Melbourne and Lycos - they said it was sorted out - do you think we need to be concerned that Lycos has jeopardized our url addresses because they didn't keep current with their suppliers?

I have not been able to get any perspective on what is going on or why nothing in the Lycos world is working

I have not been able to access my websites or domains for 48 hours. I've been with them for over 10 years. Fingers crossed and hoping they get up and running but my hope is quickly fading. Sad.

The bankruptcy article says, "This filing for bankruptcy protection gives us necessary time and space to effectively continue discussions and reach a settlement on mode and amount of payment," says the company, adding this will not have any impact on current operations of the company." Yeah, right. I think the "working on upgrading your service" is a red herring.
