Down for everyone or just me?

Is google.com down for everyone or just me?

This is a really helpful Web resource that I’ve needed to use from time to time.

Sometimes you can’t access a website because it’s genuinely down. Sometimes you can’t access a website because there is something wrong with your internet service provider’s (ISP’s) DNS server, meaning that your PC isn’t given the correct address to locate the website. Sometimes you can’t access a website because someone, somewhere needs to switch off the internet and then switch it back on again.

That’s where www.downforeveryoneorjustme.com comes in. It checks to see if it’s down for everyone else or just you.

And that’s it.

As you can see from the result…

It's just you. Google.com is up.
