Facebook Down: Service Unavailable – DNS failure

By Updated on

We have been getting reports that the social network site Facebook has been experiencing problems. It seems as if the site keeps coming up then going down with the message saying Service Unavailable – DNS failure.

I went on a few moments ago and Facebook was down, then tried again and it came back up. We are not certain what it going on, but we do know that the 500 million plus users will not be happy.

Huffington Post reports that DownRightNow said that service disruption” is “likely.” However, we are not certain what is causing the issue. I have had a number of my friends who live in different parts of the world contact me to ask if it was down for me as well – so we know that it is happening in other countries as well.

This is the second time in as many days that Facebook has been down; only yesterday Mashable reported a disruption due to a “third party networking provider.” We wonder if this is the same or a separate issue? Is Facebook down for you?

    Mine is also down… (DNS FAILURE)

    This doesn't seem to be the only problem with facebook:

    A) Sometimes chat doesnt appear at'all
    B) On the iPhone peoples post appear & dissapear
    C) DNS failure
    D) Generally the site is getting much slower

    Is it because of the now vast amount of people using the site? Or maybe changes facebook have made internally? Never used to these problems.

    We at Facebook apologize for the Inconvenience this has caused everyone. We are working as fast as possible to get the site back up and running. The problem is we had a hacker, hack into our servers and destroy the code which is used for facebook to run. As well as attacking our DNS Ports. The site should be back up and running normally by 9 pm PST tonight. Thank you for your Patience.

    I've had lots of problems over the last few weeks connecting from Vietnam. First I couldn't get on using the DNS of the local provider, so I started using Googles DNS servers, fixed it until today. Now googles DNS providers also give me an IP that finds facebook unavailable. I think it's DNS because the first time I hit this I got different results from the DNS servers in veitnam than I did from google. This second time around I'm just throwing my hands up.
