We have tried pinging Steam Store website using our server and the website returned the above results. If steampowered.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 Steam Store - 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.

Down again. 6:35 Pacific on April 26. Weird thing is, I can ping the site and tracert the site just find in cmd, but neither any browser nor the Steam dashboard can connect. It makes no sense. I've tried everything to get it working, and no browser can get there. It's the only site not working for me. All my other sites I go to work just fine. Obviously, this is a problem on Steam's end, but I can't figure out what the problem might be.

It's down right now. 11:56pm Pacific time, April 25. This says it's up, but it's not. Already tried fixing the problem. It's the only web site that's down for me. I can't even get to it through the Steam dashboard.

At the same time some people I know aren't having any problems at all.

Anyone that cant log in steam and play games, you can, just not the ones that plays online. Any single player you can . Just unplug your internet, log steam, it will then detect you don't have an internet connection and ask you if you want to log offline, do that, then you can see all your library and launch any game. But store, comminuty etc wont work. You can now replug your internet cable and log back in to teampseak or surf web etc, and play any single player game on steam. Just not online like i said.

Steam currently suffering major sync problems for the last couple of hours. steampowered servers are exceptionally spotty right now.

OK... For those of you who seem to think this page is incorrect, if SteamStore is being subjected to a DoS attack then you may not be able to use it (lots of large packets), while this page is only pinging it (tiny packet, little bandwidth used).

Adam Carter · 3 January 2014 - 07:38
Canada · Distributel Communications

THIS is how you fix if as a full user base, we all need to work together or it will be like the tragedy of the commons.
1) Stop downloading games DO IT AFTER THE SALE you games are not running away
2) If you are trading then try not to span or LINK to community page (like picuture ads) as it takes away from community service
3) DONT keep hitting refresh on the card you want for 1 cent less pay up and just get it you have had plenty of deals moving on free up the server to to other stuff
4) If you are trading with some1 discuss the trade BEFORE had that way you waste less bandwidth in deciding what to put and chatting there fast you close the trade the less bandwidth used
5) if you done trading log off give some1 else a chance come back once sales is over
AS you can see if we all work together to reduce the bandwidth usage on the server side WE CAN FIX THIS OUR SELF!!! Long will STEAM
P.S Valve you going to hire me for PR?

We all still have 12 hours of deals. And steam has a pretty good record of having thier servers up and running. Im sure it wont be long before they're back up again.

Steam probably is not under a ddos attack. Most likely crashed due to the influx of people trying to purchase items, or any other server side issue.

OK found the source of the DDOS on steam https://twitter.com/chFtheCat
EA was crashed from DerpTolling

I still don't get why people DDoS stuff. It seems really unnecessary unless you're just trying to be a prick.

naw man they just wanted to f#!k everyone on the sales, get you really geared up to have the game and then not give it to you for the discount price cause times up.

A ddos attack? Seriously? I guess it LOOKS like that, millions of people trying to access the site at once looks like a DDOS but really it's just nerds throwing into gabe newell's vast money pits!

Steam client not updating. Steam website not reachable from United Arab Emirates. Been trying for the last hour.

I was about to do a system restore and /or re-install steam until I read all these comments! At least I know it's not an error in my steam client /system files. ALSO, half the games on steam sales are also on AMAZON.COM. Only about half, like Mortal Kombat Komplete pc download is $7.49 right now. Take a look.

I was going to get CS: GO, Civ. 5, and Borderlands 2. Every time I want to buy something Steam goes down... :(

Down in down under land too :( Bugger I'm about to purchase the CIV 5 GOLD pack at -75%. I really hope they continue to honour the discount if the time limit expires (~14 hours remaining at last count)

Probably these guys https://twitter.com/DerpTrolling

If you dont know already, a group known as DERP has been DDOSing multiple gaming sites. Last Thursday, this group had knocked down LOL, DOTA2, EA, Club Penguin, and more. If you search DERP for their twitter account you will see what I mean.

Nothing is working (at least in the internet multi-player world) right now... The reapers are here I suppose. The funny thing is that these guys keep pushing to have all the game to play with your friends, everything online and full of micro transactions... I blizzard comes and no one can play, whether you are located in the affected city or not.
