Can't Access Web Answers - 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.

I'm kind of wondering if the owners may have actually privatized the site and maybe for some of reason or another something must be going on since I did everything right and tried several different browsers to no avail, still can't access the site. I did see an article where I guess the site is retiring and the owners were only kickstart it once in a while to keep it going. Not sure what's really going on though

OK, I tried about six other browsers and rebooted my modem only to get the same exact error I was getting before. Are you sure we have answers really is up? I even tried computer, all the no avail

If it's not been reachable like it sometimes says on here, why can I never reach it?

I'm starting to wonder about someplace after searching for web answers online and finding nothing but other results saying webanswers is no longer the way to make money or what have you. I'm wondering if web answers may have moved and that's why we can't get on. I did a search for web answers and can no longer find them whereas before when they were up and running real good they were among the first search results. I did find a Facebook page for them and they might have changed things around a bit for all we know. It was like the webanswers Facebook page suggests uploading videos to YouTube

No contributors have earned anything on this site since around October 1, 2015. Although the administrators initially indicated they were having issues installing a new server, that does not now appear to be the case. The site continues to advertise that contributors will earn money there. As of today, this remains inaccurate information. Hoping this website will be sold to people interested in restoring it to its former glory. It used to be a very nice place to assist people and earn extra money in the process.

Webanswers has been down for well more than a week since about two weeks ago. I don't know what's going on unless maybe the owners got in some trouble, Which would answer why they're still down. For all we know, they may have gotten in trouble with Google for something, we don't know. I know Google has repeatedly pulled their ads from webanswers for violations, and maybe Google decided they've had enough and perhaps pulled the ads permanently. This is just something to consider especially since they had other users on there were causing trouble for other users and getting other users deleted not knowing what those unknowing users were really going through when they came to ask questions about problems for starters. If you read the user agreement very carefully, you would've noticed that webanswers had people over a barrel. You had to agree that webanswers owners could delete your account for any reason, even no reason. Even if you were a very good writer with awarded answers, you were still at risk for random deletion and you could never come back. If you did, they had a way of being able to identify your machine even under a different name and they would delete that new account also as soon as the system caught up with you. This was very wrong. Perhaps Google would seriously consider having their own version of a question answer site that pays people for asking and answering questions

Even when its showing that the server is up and running, I cant access the site however much I try. Dave wrote a long comment and which has some points to note

Mystery may be solved. Go to: http://www.thekonsulthub.com/misc/webanswers-google-adsense-members-revenue-share-what-exactly-happened-2015/ , scroll down toward bottom of page and read very interesting and probably accurate explanation from "Dave". Looks like this could take awhile to remedy.

Even though the owners have said that they are working on things, it seems that webanswers has been having major problems for over two months now. I want to believe it will come back, but I'm seriously about ready to give up on it.

I just wish WebAnswers would reappear. I have questions, people. Also, I get good advice/answers here. *sigh*

10/2815. 11:29 am. Site down. No earnings since Oct. 1. One of the owners has communicated they're experiencing difficulty with new server and also with Adsense connections. Ads continue to show up on unawarded answers and have only one publisher ID on them, suggesting ads are set up to generate income to one entity. Site hack?

It would be really nice if someone would FINALLY tell us why no one is earning and if we will ever earn a dime again...IJS

10/19/15 1:50 pm - site is down again. Even this weekend when site was up, members were not earning on posts so site was not properly set up with Adsense. No members have earned anything from this site since Oct. 1, 2015.

Elaine Marie Doxie · 19 October 2015 - 16:22

Oh well. Just when I was so happy that it had been up all weekend, it's down again. I guess I just have more time to work on my book and my blogs.

Christina Curtis · 8 October 2015 - 15:03
· · Chrome 45.0 on Windows

The only reason I'm still loyal to Webanswers is because I love the site and when it's up and running, it is such a great site, a great way to earn extra money and it has nice people on it. I am certain that a lot of people (especially newcomers) have deleted their account which is sad. I can also see that the ratings are terrible for the site. I honestly hope things will get back to normal very soon.

WA came up for a very short time today and has been back down for just over 2 1/2 hours now.

I apparently logged in just before the site crashed again. I answered one question but can't submit my answer. That's always fun...

Just curious. How long does it normally take to change servers? We're on our third week of sporadic and/or no service.

October 4, 2015 It is 8:53 pm in Missouri right now.

When trying to log into WA for the past (almost) two days, I have gotten the message, "A socket has failed to open. Try again later." even though isitdownrightnow says the site is up and running.

I think someone needs to check this site's programming! I am in outside contact with several different members from WA who live in different parts of the U.S. as well as other countries... NONE of us can access WA!

Lynn and Christina, I got the same message last night, and this morning, I still can't get to the website, but I'm getting the "Hmm, I can't find that page," message. Yet when I come here, it says it's up and running. I was beginning to think there was something wrong with my computer.

After learning that Webanswers will be moved to a new server soon, I am still a bit frustrated when it goes down, but at least I know it will be back. I just hope it's soon.

This is becoming too frequent now... this is the second weekend in a row that the site has been down. Constant server issues are resulting in slow loading times, but don't worry about that because you'll never get onto the website in the first place. It's a real shame given how much this site has to offer.
