Can't Access NZ Herald - 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.

Can load the first page of the Herald but when I click on a story it just refreshes to the start page - on 3 different computers and 3 different browsers. Their App works fine but also there have been no tweets for 14 hrs - not sure what's wrong there

Does anyone else have trouble opening NZ Herald website in Chrome - opens for a couple of seconds - then comes up - aw snap - with black screen - what the hell is up with that - does it on no other websites I visit?

I'm in Rotorua, it appears for 1/2 second then I get Chrome's black "Aw, Snap!" screen. Tried all the suggestions above and none work. Every other website is normal including Rotorua Daily Post and Dom Post and it's not blocked by anti-virus or firewall.
