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

It looks like it's the NC Mall that's breaking the site. When it's up briefly, all the links I've clicked have worked except for the NC Mall which says "504 - Gateway Timeout"

Seems like we're going to have a yo-yo of a site for a while, it's back up again. But slow as shit. It'll most likely keep going online and offline for a while

No, Tracy. Not a word from them. It's 07:44am in California though, so they're probably not even in the office yet - or they're there now and have only just seen the problem. If there's no message from them in the next 2 hours, then it'll most likely be that they know, and they're ignoring us

Been waiting 5 hours for the site to come back up. This is ridiculous!
Imagine if the site was closed for good. JS made a quick escape, closed the site and ran for it xD

The ads pay for the site unfortunately. Put adblock through your settings if you use chrome or firefox.

I cannot have a stable connection to neopets! It was never a problem before this and suddenly all the pages takes ages to load and when it takes too long, it says either

a) "Error: You have been directed to this page from the wrong place! If you KEEP getting this error, chances are you have some security settings enabled that are not letting you play Neopets correctly.Click here to see some tips that might help you fix this problem." on the Neopets site or

b) "Safari Can't Open the Page. Safari can't open the page "http://www.neopets.com/market.phtml?type=wizard" because the server where this page is located isn't responding"

Best thing is, when my laptop goes onto my mobile's hotspot it works fine. I thought it'd be my home WIFI but I have never encountered this problem until recently. Even when I've flushed my DNS cache and even tried going onto the Open DNS as suggested. They both don't work. What is wrong?!

Lynn Morris · 2 December 2015 - 15:40

Up and (mostly) down all weekend. The Neopets tech staff should not (all) be off weekends when users are more likely to be using Neopets. I've had jobs where I had to work weekends, and there are plenty of people such as servers who don't get them off.

Mine is down at the moment - Tried logging in on my ipad (flash browser) incase it was my computer - was redirected to a "neopets is down" page - so its up - but the authentication server seems to be down

I cannot log in right now either. I am thinking they are working behind the scenese and messing it up for some of us. But I am getting irritated! This has been happening a LOT in the past month.

I was able to log in to a side account and go on the boards. People are saying they can't get into their main and that they have premium. I have premium so maybe it's an issue with that?

I can't log in either - since about 8:45pm PST, 7/9/2014. I try to log in and it just sits there, attempting to load a page, doing nothing. My other account works fine, and clearing my cache/restarting PC/using other browers/etc doesn't help.

STILL NOT ABLE TO GET ONTO NEOPETS!!! it's now way past a little bit of down time, it's gone past a possible server glitch, it's not broken. i think this is the down spiral of neopets. but that's me in a massive rage.

up-down-up-down it's like a phone switchboard, and this is meant to be a fun site for kids, although it stopped being that when it got brought by a shitty company. but i was and kinda am still addicted. do i care no not really i just want it back so i can resume service as usual. refreshed my computer for 12 hours because i thought it had a virus on it, just to come across this website that tells me no, it's down. -.-

Ugggghhhhh. This is why I hate it when corporations buy out fun things. I feel like the game is too commercial now. Lucky it only got worse as I got older. It feels like neopets is now the bastard child of Nick and they just don't care any more. Bring it baaaack!

Also fix the damn servers.

It's because of the plot and all the updates they've been making, I'm sure it will be better tomorrow. Why doesn't everyone just stay off it for now instead of refreshing constantly, that's not helping anything :/

Been having issues all day, especially with the Neoboards and Battledome. Most of the time I can't even load the boards or Battledome and most of the other pages are taking quite a while and multiple refreshes to load. All other websites have been working fine. I've been using command prompt to attempt to ping neopets and all requests have been timing out (taking more than 4 seconds to receive a response) while google, for example, only takes 16ms (or about 1/62 of a second) to receive a response back.

Wow what a pain, the site is soooooo slow tonight. a lot of pages are taking minutes to load& then many others aren't loading as well. and habi's been down for days now, wtf? These people have the money, just upgrade your damn servers& actually care a bit about the people who use your site. is that too much to ask? fuckin ridiculous...

Edit: Oh wait, yup- just went totally down, awesome. :/
hopefully when it comes back up itll be running better though eh?
