Can't Access Shutterstock - 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.

Shutterstock seems to be down right now, right in the middle of a deadline!! What is going on!!

Lori Monahan Borden · 7 March 2014 - 04:33

SO FRUSTRATING! --- constant force reload, spinning wheel, just to LOOK at an image...

Kristina Forrer Lawson · 28 February 2014 - 08:32

For a site that is so incredibly expensive to subscribe to, this down-time is unacceptable. I'm sitting at work not able to work, wasting valuable time and money.

Elizabeth Quijada · 28 February 2014 - 08:26

We should be credited for the hours Shutterstock site is down. Totally not right.

Rob Hatfield · 28 February 2014 - 08:15

Shutterstock is down in our studio and the wails of discontent from the designers are deafening! ;)

Paolo Guidobono · 28 February 2014 - 08:14

THX for informations, in ITALY is still down 5:13 PM (local time).

Holly Hester · 28 February 2014 - 08:12

In this day and age, being down for this long and this frequently is unacceptable. It's like shutting off the lights and closing your doors for business. I would suggest a massive server upgrade and a hefty investment in IT support. Time unfortunately, is money.

Cédric Le Dantec · 28 February 2014 - 08:11

Down. Damned !

Stuart Redfern · 28 February 2014 - 08:04

shutter stock is down again. Customer service won't say when it will be fixed but suggested that if we need images today, we should use another online source.

Idril Moore · 5 February 2013 - 11:53

Yes, Shutterstock is down for me again. Fails during the middle of my searches and then when I try to log back in I can't access the page through any browser. It's only Shutterstock. All other website working fine so I have to say they have a major problem.

Benoit Daoust · 18 January 2013 - 14:16

I Get this message: Shutterstock will be down for maintenance for about an hour. It should be back up by midnight Eastern standard time. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Michael Strickland · 10 December 2012 - 11:34

Shutterstock has been down for me (Portland, Oregon) for two days. This gives me a large headache. Their support email is:, but their phone number is UNLISTED, unless you can get to their web site. :-( Catch-22.

Steve Perron · 1 December 2012 - 12:39

some kind of time out error

Erin DeGroot · 29 October 2012 - 09:20

I was able to reach the front page, but I get a server error when I search for anything.
