Can't Access The New York Times - 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 newyorktimes.com, nyt.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.

Edit: Now it's failing on Safari, too.

George Martin · 30 January 2014 - 15:29

Impossible to have TNYT website load up... very often this is the case... I am a digital subscriber but cannot get access

Jamie Wollens · 26 January 2014 - 19:08

All of a sudden in the last two weeks the website is asking me to log-in for everything. It never did before. They said to log and then log in again. that does not work. Phone help. Very unhelpful. What to do. I will cancel subscription if it keeps going this way.

Jim Davis · 2 January 2014 - 19:15

NYT down for me, as well as Google. Every other site (lemonde.fr, bbc, etc.) works. What's up?

Dale Martin · 22 December 2013 - 06:52

Having issues with NYTimes home page "freezing up" lately...have to "kill" the connection and restart the browser. Not happening when connecting to other sites. Love having NYTimes as my home page... except for this issue. Anyone else, or is this just an issue of my configuration? Love NYTimes and would hate to have to replace it as my home page!

Isabel McCauley Farrell · 2 December 2013 - 10:46

Yes, all links say bad request

Michael Morris · 29 November 2013 - 04:08

It has been two days with no NYT access.

James Hardcastle · 28 November 2013 - 12:45

I can access site but only top part of page is visible on my browser (Chrome). Links on page often do not work. At some point browser crashes -- something that has never happened before.

Dianne Williamson · 9 September 2013 - 11:24

Have been unable to access my digital subscription for over a week now. No access today using Safari on my MacBook. Very frustrated. I pay $20/month and have no access?

Gail Whittemore · 5 September 2013 - 10:46

I'm unable to access NYTimes.com from Firefox, Chrome, and Internet Explorer. I called yesterday and was told the website was up again after it was hacked last week, but my computer still won't connect to it - the browser just says it can't find the server. Is there any way I can get it working again? I am a weekend print subscriber, but use the Times online every day.

Lisa Yellis · 4 September 2013 - 08:20

I cleared my internet cache and dns cache and I am still unable to access their webiste.

Alessandro Cima · 30 August 2013 - 12:27

New York Times web site has been completely down all week. Still down now.

Jeremy Rudy · 29 August 2013 - 13:20

Still down for me in all browsers.

Julian Merriman · 29 August 2013 - 12:20

Still no NY Times... If this is what the Syrian Electronic Army can do maybe we should think twice about lobbing missiles in a civil war with no desirable outcome. Will the Times pro-rate my digital subscription? Probably not.

Rhonda Blair · 29 August 2013 - 11:30

I can't access NYTimes from Safari or Firefox. (Dallas, TX)

Charles Zeng · 29 August 2013 - 11:21

still can not find the server from my browser ff and chrome.

Jordan D Santo · 29 August 2013 - 10:58

I am unable to access NYT from either Chrome or IE. Last night I had to use a cached copy, today that isn't even an option for me.

Edward G. Atkins · 29 August 2013 - 10:48

Still unable to contact to my NYT Reader Page or any other way with Safari since Tuesday night.

Joshua Schwartz · 29 August 2013 - 10:26

Still not able to access with chrome or Explorer from Ramat-Gan, Israel

Tashi Nada · 29 August 2013 - 09:25

I haven't been able to access anything other than the very limited news.nytco.com site for three days. I see that some others are having the same problem. Is there a fix to this? Has the NYTimes tech people said anything other than that vague statement the first day?

Michael Day · 29 August 2013 - 09:18

Not available to me in Ireland

Eric Campbell · 29 August 2013 - 09:13

I was able to use the cached ip data on google by typing
nslookup nytimes.com 8.8.8.8
Server: 8.8.8.8
Address: 8.8.8.8#53

Non-authoritative answer:
Name: nytimes.com - Address: 170.149.172.130
Name: nytimes.com - Address: 170.149.168.130

I then went to http://170.149.172.130 and was able to access the site but I needed to play with my links to get them to work.

If you edit your hosts file (helpdeskgeek.com/windows-7/windows-7-hosts-file/) and put in an entry for www.nytimes.com you should be able to get to the nytimes.

Eden B B Williams · 29 August 2013 - 08:59

Leslie Wizelman · 29 August 2013 - 03:46

I still am unable to access NY times, using internet explorer

Ted Cody · 28 August 2013 - 17:22

Though my wife has no problem, I can't reach the NYT on either chrome or IE, unless I bypass the DNS server with http://170.149.168.130. Can't access stories even then.

Charlotte Valentiner · 28 August 2013 - 13:37

Also unable to access. It was up for some time for me today, but yesterday it was down as well.

Elanaandscott Sullstein · 28 August 2013 - 12:48

Byron Myers · 28 August 2013 - 05:18

You can access the global edition at: global.nytimes.com/

Petrus Bastos · 28 August 2013 - 04:32

I have been trying to access the New York Times since yesterday at 7 PM Brazil time and have not been able. I still am not able today at 8:30 AM Brazil time. Can the Syrians really do all this to the best paper in the world ? Why can't this be corrected ?

Linda Stafford · 28 August 2013 - 04:16

My internet can't find the New York Times server. Happened yesterday, too.. but I understand it was hacked. How about today?

Kenneth McDevins Edobor · 28 August 2013 - 03:03

NY TIMES has been hacked.

Cecil L. Johnson · 27 August 2013 - 21:25

Have been trying with no success for about 8 hours to get nytimes on different browsers.

Shane Etzenhouser · 27 August 2013 - 19:21

I couldn't access nytimes which I know is a lingering DNS issue. I updated my DNS to use google's public DNS as mentioned in the "troubleshooting instructions" listed above and that worked. Instructions for configuring your computer for Google's public DNS here: developers.google.com/speed/public-dns/docs/using

Neal King · 27 August 2013 - 18:34

Stephen Fromhart · 27 August 2013 - 18:18

I can't access NYT via Firefox or Safari. I can access any other site.

Times Web Site Affected by External Hacking Attack

By CHRISTINE HAUGHNEY
Published: August 27, 2013

The New York Times Web site was unavailable to readers on Tuesday afternoon following an attack on the company’s domain name registrar, Melbourne IT. The attack also required employees of The Times to stop sending out sensitive e-mails.

Dody Sankpill · 27 August 2013 - 15:55

NYT online down in Kansas City, MO since this afternoon... bypassing DNS issue does bring up the front page of the NYT online, but there is no navigation...

Butch Burton · 27 August 2013 - 15:19

NYT is still down - are reports of requests for nyt sites are being directed to russia. Sounds like the russians are unhappy with the nyt coverage of assad/syria. Must be the case because only a state sponsored effort could bring down the nyt. Kind of scary - if the russians can keep the nyt off the web - wonder what they could do to our infrastructure that depends upon the web.

Be interesting to see how this attack shakes out - bet Janet Napolitano will come out with an interesting statement like she did for the underwear bomber.

Michael Morrow · 27 August 2013 - 13:36

When I nslookup nytimes.com I get 141.105.64.37, which whois says belongs to a Russian company, Shorefront Media, Inc. DNS is borked somewhere.

Eliot M. Camarena · 27 August 2013 - 13:34

www.chicagotribune.com/business/technology/chi-new-york-ti...
says the site is back up. Not in NYC it isn't...

Chris Conklin · 27 August 2013 - 13:23

I admin DN Servers at a University: NYTimes.com DNS resolution is flaky this afternoon to put it mildly.

Joe Foerster · 27 August 2013 - 13:10

I can get to it now! Back up in Los Angeles.
Edit: Oops! It's back down again... :(

Howard Williams · 27 August 2013 - 13:04

Down for a while. (Time Warner was down in Chelsea, NYC, all morning.)

Eliot M. Camarena · 27 August 2013 - 12:58

Going to the IP address gets you to the homepage but none of the links are working. Can't get to any articles.

Valerio Luccio · 27 August 2013 - 12:55

OK, I'll expand on what I just posted. You need to add the following to your hosts:
170.149.168.130 www.nytimes.com graphics8.nytimes.com

Valerio Luccio · 27 August 2013 - 12:50

After some research found out that it's a DNS problem (what translates "www.nytimes.com" to the actual fisical address). If you go to the IP address (http://170.149.168.130) it comes up. If you know/feel confident changing your system settings, you can get around this problem.

Tamsyn Coulon · 27 August 2013 - 12:42

Cleared cache, cookies, dns etc. and it's still down (colorado) using chrome

Zo O'Falan · 27 August 2013 - 12:39

It's down for me metro NYC, as well as Charlotte NC via VPN and doesn't work on AT&T 4/3G networks either...

Audrey Lee Jacobs · 27 August 2013 - 12:28

It's down in Queens NY via Verizon Wireless thru Google Chrome and Internet Explorer.

Doug Gardner · 27 August 2013 - 12:19

I can't reach NYT from Chrome or Firefox, starting at about 3:10PM EDT on Aug 27, 2013

Tina Johansson · 27 August 2013 - 11:55

Thanks for posting this, Mark. I tried to access it today, but no success.

Thresiamma Thomas Paul · 14 August 2013 - 09:54

What's happening to NYT site? No access. Such problems are frequent
after Washington Post sale!!

Jerry Shifman · 14 August 2013 - 08:51

Does anyone else find this scary? Is NSA blocking access to the Laura Poitras story? WTF is goiing on here!?

Gail Pearlman · 14 August 2013 - 08:34

Tried Firefox, Google Chrome and IE - can't load NY Times on any of them.

Susan Fleetwood · 14 August 2013 - 08:22

Most likely everyone is trying to read the article about the Clintons.

Adam Mellis · 7 August 2013 - 09:50

Technically the site may be up, but the Home page never finishes loading, and displays incorrectly.

Paul Wetor · 1 July 2013 - 10:50

Only the home page works. Other links give me this: Http/1.1 Service Unavailable

Computer Guy here. Just at another customer with same issue. Installing Google Chrome, imported bookmarks and all is good with NY Times.

Ann Bentzen-Bilkvist · 20 February 2013 - 13:59

I have not been able to access the New York Times web site since last Friday. Is there an issue or a new URL?
