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

You may have noticed that oDesk's site was down for a few hours. We experienced a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack -- a stream of traffic directed at our site with the intention of overwhelming it and making it unavailable to our community. oDesk.com is back up. Your information was not compromised and is safe. Thank you for your patience and we apologize for any challenges this caused you.

This is dumb.. No updates, nothing. No message. I'll be switching my clients to manual billing if they don't fix it

Edit: Just an update.. Apparently you can still login and see everything if you do it from inside the tracker app.

Anyone who has managed to, could you please report a serious problem to the staf at oDesk. They need engineers on this as soon as possible so that we can all check for work and payments etc.
