Having Problems Accessing a Website?

Are you having problems accessing your favorite website? Do not let yourself get discouraged by continually trying to access the website. Sites go down, sometimes for brief moments of time, sometimes longer, and during peak periods a site may be getting too much activity to handle your request. Stop, write down the website, and try accessing it later.

If you continually have problems over a long period of time (days, weeks, etc.) the website may be down or some wires may be down on the Internet. Try accessing the website from a different service provider. If it comes up, contact your ISP and let them know of the problem (do it politely, please!)
