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 m.reddit.com, us.reddit.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.

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.

Check your stuff isitdownrightnow.com, 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

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

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

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

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.

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."

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.

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

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