We have tried pinging Star Wars: The Old Republic website using our server and the website returned the above results. If swtor.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 Star Wars: The Old Republic - 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.

Well game is up and site is up but I can´t pay for my sub, tried everything. Mailed them without answer, called them and they hung up on me. So I have uninstalled swtor sent a mail to them informing them of their lousy service, time to find another game...

Luc Parizeau · 31 October 2012 - 03:58

They posted this 15 min ago on Twitter :

The Old Republic @SWTOR -- We are aware some players can’t access http://bit.ly/SuYweu and experience login issues. We are working on resolving it as soon as possible.

So i imagine at the rate they work it should be back and working in about 10 to 12 hours. Once again you can tell that they are not doing anything till the fast food of gaming (EA) gives them the go ahead...

if they have gone down for good then they had better refund the money they just took out of my account 3 hours ago.

David Summers · 31 October 2012 - 03:36

can get images working by adding cdn-www.swtor.com to your hosts file as well - I reckon that the issue is a BW name server has gone offline and they have a really short TTL on their SWTOR name. Launcher does not work as it needs access to the site to pull down the update.manifest (INFO Download: http://manifest.swtor.com/patch/retailclient_swtor.patchmanifest)

Anders Lidén · 31 October 2012 - 03:22
Sweden · Bredband2 AB

There is a thread on the forum talking about this (like I mentioned) and if you hack around with my workarounds you can go to this URL:


to see the thread. BW seems to be on it but their approach is much more "it's on your side" but they havent commented in a while so it might be that they actually have started to understand that it's on their side :D

Anders Lidén · 31 October 2012 - 03:18
Sweden · Bredband2 AB

My workaround is setting my DNS servers to servers that should give me the right answers or by editing the hosts file.

Technical mumbo jumbo:

1 - It seems that most of the actual site is located on ip number so I added swtor.com and www.swtor.com pointing to that ip number in the hosts file.

Now swtor.com loads up but without CSS.

2 - after surfing the horrible swtor.com above I found a "dns broken" forum post who suggest that you set your dns servers to either and/or should get you to be able to log into the game, but you'll get an empty server list so it dosn't work 100% even though.

Of course, don't forget ipconfig /flushdns after each change.

(Since you might break your computer fiddling with the above I actually won't tell you exactly HOW you do the above. Either you know what I'm talking about or you should stay away from this fiddling.)

Yep, i was assuming sandy played a part. Appreciate the informative post Anders.

David Summers · 31 October 2012 - 03:03

I figured it was DNS. Added manifest.swtor.com www.swtor.com to my hosts file. but no joy

What work arounds did you use bud

Anders Lidén · 31 October 2012 - 02:59
Sweden · Bredband2 AB

After endlessly playing around with DNS settings I can tell you the following:

1 - The site is not down. It's up but not reachable due to DNS problems. If you use workarounds you can actually use the site but I have not managed to get it to load up it's CSS which means it looks like crap.

2 - The launcher is not down. It's up but unreachable due to DNS problems. If you use workarounds you can actually log into the game but the list of servers is completely empty.

This makes me belive that everything is up and working perfectly on their end. If you were online at the moment (having logged on long ago) you would still be unaffected, but as soon as you log out you cannot com back in. Worst case scenario is that the DNS servers inside EA/BW/SWToR development is feeding them correct info and they cannot even recreate the error from inside their own network.

Using my workarounds gives you tastes and crums, but nothing really useful. I do think, however, that if you manage to get the DNS server settings just right you will be able to surf the site and play the game without problem.

NOW - what could have caused this? My (very very unscientific) guess is that some DNS servers or data centers in the US are affected by the storm over there (power outage or worse) and thus we have this problem - however even if the above is right, I don't get why ALL DNS servers suddenly forgot swtor.com at the same time.

James Collar · 31 October 2012 - 02:57

Yeah, seems to be a DNS issue. :(

same. is it an isp issue? I'm with Westnet

Anders Lidén · 31 October 2012 - 02:20
Sweden · Bredband2 AB

Seems to be a DNS issue. So you *can* reach it if you use the ip-number directly (though only to check if it's up or not) but you cannot log in or actually use the site.

Luc Parizeau · 31 October 2012 - 02:17

The website or launcher are dead to me too...
