We have tried pinging RuneScape website using our server and the website returned the above results. If runescape.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 RuneScape - 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.

Just woke up, the sun was shining and all was beautiful on this monday afternoon. I was looking forward to spending the next 12 hours cutting logs and chatting with my clan, but then it happened. It was traumatizing and unforgivable. "No reply from login server. Please wait 1 minuet and try again". There is no god.

Anyone have any idea when it'll be back up? Server blackouts are an xp waste.

Of course the server is down, when you have malicious programs like Zeus out there the only thing someone has to do is pay enough money for a good enough bot net and they could take down a major social networking site! This is easily avoidable and Jagex has shitty servers, good fight fagex get some DDOS protection worth as much as these shitty updates.

I was playing just fine literally 3 hours ago, now I can't even get it to load the site what so ever. Come on Jagex, the one day I have to play runescape all day in forever and this shit happens.

Edit (+50 mins) : Well, I'm officially back in the game, so everything is working properly for me, thank you Jagex. Good luck to those still having issues, but everybody's should be working fine.

Yeah, so it's down, clearly, not just me my brother tried and from a couple computers. Can't even get on to the website to find anything out, it won't even load, I love how it says "The website is probably down just for you...". Don't I feel special...

Desktop client isn't working, and I can sign in on the main page, but not load the browser client or anything further than the home page.

Currently down in the US. Sad. Won't be fixed until at least tomorrow. Time for some CSGO or Diablo...

I am pretty sure its down, I cannot access through multiple Internets, or the downloaded version... It has nothing to do with firewall or any settings because it just worked perfectly the other night sooooo..???

Alllllll bad... I hope it's not a big issue that would require a rollback, unless that means I get to re-do my troll defense for the month that I screwed up on.

Can't load the client, can't get onto the forums, can't access the billing page.

Welp, that sucks.

when i try online it just says "Error click for details" and doesn't actually help, and the client says it can't load the configuration from the website, i've tried uninstalling and re-installing both java and the client, but that doesn't seem to help. Any advice?

The governments of the world should just kill the people who run these huge botnets. (They certainly do enough damage to count as a casus belli.) No botnets=no DDoS's without massive support.

Not working. I have tried a bunch of stuff, thinking it might be my end, but it says webpage unavailable when I try to log on now.

F#!k you Jagex. Every month so far I've experienced 2-4 days where I couldn't log on when I wanted to and you NEVER f#!king refund us. INVEST MORE INTO YOUR SERVERS.

"Our systems are currently unavailable." Let me know if you guys are having the same problem and have a solution.

It varies between stating that my correct password is incorrect OR that my game session has ended. Re loading my computer, internet and browser have done nothing to aid this issue.

Breanna Lee Walsh · 28 July 2013 - 04:37

The main page loads but nothing else, so sad. Hope it'll be fixed soon.

Noah Sanchez · 24 July 2013 - 20:22

Due to the new update, everyone is getting a black screen with bits of the game showing but it refuses to fully load. Just so everyone knows, it's down right now.

tried to log. about 30 times. every time I received an error message telling me I suck and that it will not load the page until I stop failing at life. Hmm?

Nathan Davies · 9 September 2012 - 04:11

No data received. very unusual. Normally lets you at least onto homepage. So there must be a big problem on rs homepage.

Garrett Foster · 9 September 2012 - 03:32
United States · SRT Telecom

Yeah im trying to access the homepage and it is just saying that it cannot find it. They must be doing some sort of big homepage update for the upcoming Botany Bay update I would guess. (which will be sweet btw!)

404 Error when loading the page, error connecting to server through client. Was kicked off while loading the cave in the Carnillean Rising quest.

I'm getting that same issue now. The number of people is dropping but could just be the time of day.

I'm pretty sure it's down at the moment... I can access the main website (only just) but then when I click "Play Now" it says that chrome has stopped opening it because it has taken too long to respond...
