Probably the server is overloaded, down or unreachable because of a network problem, outage or a website maintenance is in progress...

Can't Access The Globe And Mail - 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.

Having Problems with Accessing

I have not been able to access the Globe and Mail homepage for three days now. "I get this message: Something’s gone wrong. We are experiencing an internal server error. Our engineers are working to resolve the problem as we speak. In the meantime, please visit us on Twitter to stay informed."

I can access sub-pages if I click on an article link from google news or other sources. I pay for a subscription so it's super frustrating.

I did the Control F5 thing above and the Globe popped bach up. Strange.

It is not wanting to load for me right now. Is there an issue?

It has been down for two days for me too, with just a message saying "something's gone wrong" and a picture of a nice black ink bottle fallen over with ink spilt everywhere... very frustrating!

The Globe and Mail website has twice opened up one of those pop up windows that says I have virus and then won't let me shut down my browser.

I get a "Error 500 Internal Server Error" message. Today it's impossible to access and I am paying for an online subscription! I have had similar problems several times this week.

It's been down all day for me- I use Safari- this isn't the first time I have seen that error message with the Globe and Mail. Glad I am paying $20/month to read it online!!!
