Can't Access Russia Today - 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 actualidad.rt.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.

Having Problems with Accessing Rt.com?
Jess Barton · 5 April 2014 - 03:02

Having probs watching live over last few days here in the UK. Is the problem at my end?

Chwee Philip · 1 April 2014 - 00:44

rt.com is down today on 1st april 2014 in Singapore . This rt.com is the best news network in the world and I am glad that this news channel is present to open our eyes to all the lies and scams on main stream USA and UK news channels.Recently this very eye opening news channel rt.com seems to be down very often. I strongly suspect the USA CIA or the NSA of the USA is trying to prevent more people from listening to rt.com and the USA government is desperately trying to prevent more people from being aware of the all the lies and fake news coming out from main stream USA and UK news channels

Bob Altzar Djurdjevic · 19 March 2014 - 17:03

rt.com is down for me here in Scottsdale, Arizona. I tried three different browsers (Chrome, Safari, Firefox) with the same result. Anyone else experiencing the same thing?

Wow, down again. Up less than 24 hours this time. I am witnessing the censoring of my news. Trying TOR now...

Update: ok, now I'm in TOR, and getting RT--when you say it has just gone down again, wtf. It was a pain, even in TOR--i got some message i've never seen just trying to search 'RT' in google:

Our systems have detected unusual traffic from your computer network. This page checks to see if it's really you sending the requests, and not a robot. Why did this happen? bu ti'm watching RT live, right now...?

J Carlos Nevarez · 31 March 2013 - 22:25

I agree, maybe the US is trying to block RT out.

Gina Marie W · 31 March 2013 - 21:59

curious if it's an old page. no new stories posted on rt on my page in nyc. read these pieces yesterday. maybe archived to lessen censorship suspicion?

Picky Designs · 31 March 2013 - 21:25

Can't seem to work here in Canada either. Come on Anonymous, you didn't do this, did you?

J Carlos Nevarez · 31 March 2013 - 21:18

Andy Gee · 7 September 2012 - 01:25

RT.com is being blocked in the Philippines too (as of September 7th). The simple fix is to change your DNS servers to and - details of how to do this here: http://www.opendns.com/opendns-ip-addresses

It certainly seems like a concerted effort through large ISPs to block this content - silencing the truth and bringing in a police state. For your information the IP address of RT.com is: and this can be semi-permanently set in your windows hosts file.

C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\hosts rt.com www.rt.com

Rukshan Thantirige · 6 September 2012 - 20:48

Its finally up in Massachusetts.

Tony Victory · 6 September 2012 - 19:52

It's been down for me since yesterday.

Joe Church · 6 September 2012 - 14:08

RT Has suffered a major hack! They have had a DAEMON spam virus attack network solutions servers that host RT.com causing them to block DNS and Wide IP addresses.

Joe Church · 6 September 2012 - 14:05

finally up here after 2 days

Michael R. Moore · 6 September 2012 - 13:32

once again i can not reach rt.com via there web address. does anyone know whats going on?

Maxim Nazarov · 6 September 2012 - 13:08

The reason of RT missing might be RT's interview with Putin on 05 Sept 12, (1 hour long). Some hard topics were discussed. (some parts of it can be found on Yourtube).

Neil Smith · 6 September 2012 - 12:57

RT has become my favourite TV station and website lately. An intelligent alternative voice to the MSM in America, a badly neded voice, something like Bill Clintons speech last night. Someone in the USA is sabotaging this site, they hate the truth.

Maxim Nazarov · 6 September 2012 - 11:37

RT is down in St.Petersburg (Russia). No ideas.

Bradley Brown · 6 September 2012 - 11:17

Not working in S. Indiana. Never had this problem before.

Azaad Bakhtali · 6 September 2012 - 09:25

It's back now... don't know what the problem was. Nothing mentioned on their website...

Jason Vega · 6 September 2012 - 09:04

down in CT, USA for over a day now. Very fishy

Franklin Holbrook · 6 September 2012 - 07:56

Down in Dubai -WTF?

Azaad Bakhtali · 6 September 2012 - 07:53

Now things are getting scarier by the minute!!! Btw, down in the Netherlands

Santiago Duverge · 6 September 2012 - 07:33

Same in NYC - down

Joe Church · 6 September 2012 - 07:27

what kind of non-compliance?

Kyle Solomon · 6 September 2012 - 07:21

I checked the whois database and it appears RT has been forced down due to non-compliance - Are we in China now???


Joe Church · 6 September 2012 - 06:10

Now I dont even get network solutions page.. it is saying it is broken but this site says it is up... I tried comodo chrome firefox hell I even opened explorer for the first time in 2 years. Its not pining now in cmd

Anton Grigoryev · 6 September 2012 - 06:04

It's not working in opera now

Anton Grigoryev · 6 September 2012 - 05:58

Try Opera. It doesn't work in Chrome, but it works in Opera (at least in my computer)

Joe Church · 6 September 2012 - 05:58

now it says OOOPS Google cant find RT.com something is up and its not the website

Joe Church · 6 September 2012 - 05:51

I have done everything I know to do I released my DNS, I deleted all my cookies, Temp Internet files, I did a reg clean, I cant access it from this computer but laptop will pull it up any help on this would be grateful. I think network solutions has hijacked my puter cause it works on laptop and not desktop. I have done all of the usual things..It pings right but still shows network solutions.

Joe Church · 6 September 2012 - 05:46

still down... network solutions has it hijacked

Steve Spy · 6 September 2012 - 05:26

Down in Manchester, United Kingdom.

Richard Townsend · 6 September 2012 - 04:11

For two days it has been hijacked by Network Solutions. Even linking from other websites to an individual rt.com story takes me to Network Solutions.

Robert Olson · 6 September 2012 - 02:27

I can't get it either.. I think too that it's the federal government blocking them or a server raid.

Rodrigo Pradel · 6 September 2012 - 02:00

its on Livestation: http://www.livestation.com/en/rt/en

Greg Morgan · 5 September 2012 - 21:02

I can't get it in Illinois. Tried all evening

Michael R. Moore · 5 September 2012 - 21:01

rt.com is down in Chicago, IL as-well. I hope its just down and not being blocked.

Edson Marcello Fonseca · 5 September 2012 - 20:58

I tried to change my DNS to OPENDNS and RT.COM came back to my screen... My isp is american/mexican (Virtua).

Kyle Soloway · 5 September 2012 - 19:46

the united states is making a move on iran and they don't want RT to cover it, they are hiding the truth from us.

Edson Marcello Fonseca · 5 September 2012 - 19:02

It still is down from here, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. What shows up is a page of Network Solutions... It seems that they (RT) simply didn´t renewed the domain license...

Adi Khavous · 5 September 2012 - 17:14

Down in Montreal September 5. something is fishy!

Joe Church · 5 September 2012 - 15:48

I am getting it on one puter not the other. I have deleted cookies and cache any suggestions?

Aleksander Antonic · 5 September 2012 - 12:43

yep, rt down here too, near Norfolk, Va

Edson Marcello Fonseca · 5 September 2012 - 11:28

It is down indeed.

Trenton Carmon · 5 September 2012 - 11:02

Rt.com blocked Sept. 5, 2012 @ 2:01pm (14:01) Washington, D.C. time. What the hell is going on... I truly hope that this is temporary, but most likely its an attack on their website. =/

Alistair Emmanuel Alexander Stark · 5 September 2012 - 07:49

The website indeed seems to be blocked. I hope this will be short lived, as Russia Today has consistently provided a good counter view to the nonsensical and rhetoric based MSM news.

Guillaume Deschenes Verville · 5 September 2012 - 07:41

Same Here rt.com Down September 5, 2012 at 10:40 am Quebec time and aljazeera.com is back up from hack september 4, 2012

Vincent Amato · 5 September 2012 - 06:44

Rt.com is apparently being blocked as of today, September 5, 2012 at 9:40 a.m. New York time. What I have found to be the one reliable source of information with regard to U.S. shenanigans in the Middle East and elsewhere appears to be in jeopardy. One can only hope this is a temporary situation. The live stream of their television coverage can be accessed via a google link, however.
