Can't Access Paltalk - 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.

Paltalk seems to be experiancing a lot of problems with sound and typing lately. Why do help room admins have to manually reset rooms for voice? Also why is it that the fix they do does not last? These problems appear to have started with the latest update release and although I have been using an earlier version, I have been advised by the help room admins to upgrade. This I have done and the problems still persist.

I have been trying for two days to get on to with no results it says the dns can't be reached. This is 8/02/2014. if anyone knows what to do about this please let me know. I really use this program a lot and need it to work for me. I know that everytime they force an upgrade on it the new program will cause problems for a bit and they just did that a few days ago. I really really wish they'd go back to the last workable program they had and leave it be.

Paltalk's been down for me since 9am.. haven't been able to logg on. Prior to that people were having issues in chat rooms.

Like I said.. 40 bucks for an advertisement free colored name and the program STILL does not function 15 percent of the time.. Get Ad muncher and a black non paying name and you won't see the ads..

All Paltalk would need is a VPN and the DDOS attacks would do nothing. You can not tell me that a company like paltalk does not use a VPN. Regular folks at home use VPN. What a lame duck if they do not use VPN. VPN btw stands for Virtual private network. No IP address no attack.

I would surely love to see someone Open a business and become Pal talk's competition. They could take all of their business. All they would need to do is actually hire people to be their staff instead of poor misguided individuals volunteering to work in the Help rooms. Those people have absolutely no idea what is going on. I guess they toss them a few freebies and call it a day as their pockets fill to capacity offering virtual gifts and such to people who can't even use them tonight, being that the complete system is down. And, when they offer ed the pink name, its 5 bucks for everyone to purchase, they made a claim to donate a "whopping" 5 grand to Breast Cancer Research... we all know you banked way over the top on that one. 5 grand was just a droplet in the bucket!!... I'm disgusted...

Paltalk has been acting up for about a week. It sucks when you pay for a service and it doesnt work. This happens everytime they put out a new release.

The bottom line is every time pal talk has issues like this they come with an excuse DDOS attacks the bottom line is thats all bullshit and if anyone believes different your all nuts they are a lame useless chat program that will lose people and charge way to much and do nothing to help the customers because they don't give a shit and when you go in there useless help rooms they dot you ...Pal Talk sucks
