5 Websites to Check if a Website is Down for Everyone or Just You
|3 January 2010||Posted by whiztech under Uncategorized|
Quick tip. When we are trying to access our favourite website and the website is down, sometimes we might think, “Is the website is down for everyone or just me?”. If the website is down for everyone, you probably don’t have to worry because the problem is not at your end. If it is just you, then you might have a problem and you need to check your Internet configuration. In this post, you will find 5 websites that let you quickly check if a website is down for everyone or just you. The first 3 are my favourite.
Plain simple! Just enter the website address that you want to check and the result will be displayed in a simple way.
downorisitjustme.com will let you to quickly check if a website is down or only at your end. Still simple, even though it is not as simple as downforeveryoneorjustme.com.
downornot.com will check if a website is down or not from 3 random stations from 42 WatchMouse monitoring network. If 2 or more stations find an error or did not get any respond from the website within 4 seconds, then the website will be considered down. Popular checks are displayed in tag clouds on downornot.com website.
Just like #1 and #2, a simple website to check if other website is down or not.
Unlike the other 4, to check a website using isit.down4justme.com, you will need to enter a full URL, for example, http://www.twitter.com. isit.down4justme.com will also show you a screenshot of the website that you check.
Extra notes. If the problem is only on your end, you might want to recheck your Internet configurations. Changing DNS resolver might be the first step. If a website (domain) changes its IP address, your ISP DNS resolver usually caches the old IP record and don’t have the latest DNS information. Using Google DNS resolver or OpenDNS might solve the problem if it is a DNS problem.
