We have tried pinging Russia Today website using our server and the website returned the above results. If rt.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 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.

Isitdownrightnow is alternately and inconsistently reporting www.rt.com as up then down. Comcast DNS servers (75.75.76.76 and 75.75.75.75) are consistently reporting no DNS entry. Google OpenDNS (8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4) are finding www.rt.com just fine. Instructions for changing your default DNS servers (usually just set automatically by your ISP) can be found on the isitdownrightnow status page. For U.S. Comcast subscribers, you can just wait - Comcast will eventually fix the problem.

I can't access RT.com either and message pops up telling me it's server DNS could not be found, although I've been able to access it daily until this week. Fortunately I can access on TV channel but of course info is limited to what their topic is at the moment and the crawl across bottom of screen which doesn't provide much detail. If that channel goes off the air, then I'll be suspicious of deliberate censorship.

There were NSA-paid trolls on RT that continued to violate the rules on the site and when people like myself tried to respond to them, RT banned me instead of them from making comments there. Very strange.........

RT.com is being blocked in the Philippines too (as of September 7th). The simple fix is to change your DNS servers to 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220 - 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: 62.213.11.201 and this can be semi-permanently set in your windows hosts file.
