My site is down

  1. Is wordpress still getting hit by the DDoS attacks? I can't seem to load my blog. Thanks

    The blog I need help with is pragmaticstartup.wordpress.com.

  2. THe good news is, your site is fine. Here in Canada I can see it perfectly.

    The bad news is, a lot of people are having this problem. It appears to be ISP related, so if I were you I'd contact your internet service provider.

  3. mine is also down leatricea.wordpress.com Every other site on my computer works fine

  4. It's not just my site, anything wordpress takes a VERY long time to load, if it even loads. My site will not load at all. . leatricea.wordpress.com

  5. Yes, the attacks are ongoing. We're working to block them when they hit.

  6. WordPress is currently experiencing a DDoS attack. This will affect lots of things.

  7. We're working on it guys! It's not the nicest thing. :(

    We'll try to keep updates coming. Sites may load slowly or sporadically while we are working on the problem.

  8. You can work around it a little by using the HTML editor, not the Visual editor, to add links.

  9. great tip, thanks Raincoaster.

  10. Hiya, just to let you know that access to my site/dashboard is quite sporadic. I am in Singapore, if that's helpful.

  11. @notabilia Yes, there was a lot of trouble for that location. We are working to fix it as soon as we can.

  12. ya, I am in Singapore also, and I can't access my site at all...

  13. Thanks @designsimply. I was wondering about this. I look forward to a speedy resolution!

  14. Having the same problem. Can access the site but cannot post. I'm in Singapore.

  15. Same here. Not even my dashboard

  16. I'm in singapore and having troubles too. Hope this will pass by soon!

  17. I'm in Singapore too .. I can load my blog at struggling speed on my phone, but impossible on the desktop. sigh.

  18. The DDoS itself has subsided from this morning, but there still may be related issues.

    For those still having trouble (especially from Singapore), what do you see when you try to load WordPress.com? Exact error messages and/or a screenshot would be great.

  19. I'm from Singapore and this is what I see:

    The webpage at http://agentbotak.wordpress.com/wp-admin/index.php?page=stats might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.
    Error 101 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_RESET): Unknown error.

  20. @hewsut - if it is any help, I know you mentioned Australia somewhere as one of the affected areas - I seem to be fine today. (5pm here).

  21. File a report with the staff:

  22. Hi I am in New zealand and I can barely get into my site - it takes forever and 99 times out of 100 will not load even now.

  23. Hi there,
    Others have the same problem. See here and just ignore the spam comments at the end. http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/down-outage?replies=28

  24. i'm from singapore. i could access my site earlier on, but now it just takes forever to load and resets my connection.

  25. Hi from Singapore. I tried clearing cookies and cache from browser history, logging out then logging back in. Seems to work for a while after that, but still sporadic. Stat bars are dead, and remains to be seen if able to post anything for now.
