Can't Access Reddit - 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,

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.

Not working. Got the "we took too long to make this page for you
try again and hopefully we will be fast enough this time" notice every time I do anything.

Joss Town · 16 August 2014 - 21:46
United Kingdom · PlusNet Technologies · Firefox 31.0 on Mac

I keep getting "Server not found" messages or "This web page is not available".

David Herman · 16 August 2014 - 12:28
United States · Time Warner Cable · Firefox 31.0 on Windows

looks like it just came down smooth sailing, and all of a sudden getting "taking too long" errors, instantly. NC, USA

Bart Lateur · 1 August 2014 - 04:07
Belgium · Belgacom Skynet · Firefox 31.0 on Windows

The way this service interprets "server is up" might be re-examined. The server response:

Invalid URL
The requested URL "/", is invalid.
Reference #9.27120ac3.1406891128.8d3786d1

does, in no way, represent "up" to me.

Possible Chrome problem: It has the "We took too long to make this page for you" message, even after several reloads. However, it seems to work fine in IE. Will report issue to Reddit if this continues.

"this page is temporarily in read-only mode due to heavy traffic."

reddit is down for emergency maintenance is the error I'm getting now.

Tried in Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. loads if not logged in. Upon login or 'remember me' logged-in load, get the 'Ow' page.

Check your stuff, Reddit's being DDOSed by DERP. Nothing but the front page (read only) is reachable.

Woah Dude · 30 December 2013 - 17:34

It's probably down because everyone is in total awe over the Best of WoahDude 2013 awards

Joseph Aubrey · 30 December 2013 - 17:19

only the front page is up in read only. everything else isnt working

Josh Bethell · 30 December 2013 - 17:16

reddit is most likely being ddosed by DERP who so far has ddosed dota 2, league NA/EU/OCE and club penguin.

Chris Hughes · 30 December 2013 - 17:16

Totally down right now. isitdownrightnow obviously needs to update their tests.

Chris Hickey · 30 December 2013 - 17:16

It is currently being DDosed by the same guys who just did the same to League of Legends and DOTA2

Totally down, yeah you can browse incognito but can't see any comments, just links. Boring.

looks down to everyone I am on skype with... I really feel like this site doesnt work

Aaron Artino · 24 November 2013 - 21:39

It's the authentication mechanism that isn't working. If you load your browser incognito/InPrivate it will load the page without trying to authenticate and you will be able to browse...

Char Hersman · 24 November 2013 - 21:30

Loading is hit and miss. A lot of "We took too long to make this page for you."

Sonny Nguyen · 18 November 2013 - 21:49

Wow the numbers suddenly went up. Wonder what happened. In any case that signals an overload. So it's down because of that, I think.

Zachary Grese · 18 November 2013 - 21:48

Been down on and off again for about an hour. Ugh. Gotta do homework I guess.

Joey Verville · 18 November 2013 - 21:48

Yeah since it is taking to long to render the site, it is most likely DDoS.

Jeremiah Macaulay · 19 August 2013 - 10:57

Guys either use "Incognito mode" in Chrome or "private browsing" in Firefox and that should do the trick.

Ian Andrew Irwin · 19 August 2013 - 10:53

Brandon Cleary is correct - I opened an incognito tab and working (not auto-logged in when incognito)

It's not even loading before popping this up.

its happening for me too, but all "Is it down for just me"-esque websites are saying its up.

Brandon Cleary · 19 August 2013 - 10:51

Reddit works under a different browser that I'm not logged into. So if your not logged in it works.

Reddit is down, same thing as others reported (page taking too long to load) as of 12:44 CST
