Can't Access Wattpad - 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.

Sometimes the menu bar in the My Works section shows, sometimes it`s not showing. Why? It`s hard to write on Word and copy & paste them on Watty because the spacing changes...Why does this happen? :(

I bet everyone's at least refreshed this page at least 15, 000 times just to be sure of their sanity and face reality that WP is still down... guess that sarcastic train of thought would have to wait just a little longer.

There's to many people on Wattpad right now. I think it's safe to say, we're just going to have to wait until tomorrow - unless you're willing to pull an all night.

There's to many people on Wattpad. We'll just have to wait until tomorrow to have it up and ready - unless you're willing to pull an all nighter.
