Slickdeals Down: Hours of outage for August 2010

We have some news for you that website Slickdeals is down. The site has been out of service for some time now and there is no news of when the site will be back up. When you try and connect to the site all you see is the server timed out message.

Slickdeals forum site is up and has the message “We are in the process of moving our servers. You will be temporarily redirected to www.3.slickdeals.net and various *3.slickdeals.net sites. Once your DNS servers update, the url will be back to normal.”

But the site is not redirecting as it should, and you are left with the message screen. Have you tried to use the site since it has been down? And have you tried using a different deals site instead? Or are you going to wait until Slickdeals is back up?

Let us know what site you would use instead.

Make sure you follow Slickdeals on Facebook. If you had, you would have known to use www3 and that the issue is not on their side.

Seems like a regional DNS error.

Slickdeals is indeed down. I haven't been able to log on all day (Sat. Aug 14). The rest of my internet browsing has been trouble free.

I have not been able to access it since yesterday. For those that just checked the site, are you sure you are not viewing the cached version? But as Jack says, if he has been using it all day then it must be fine for some.

I manually put the www3 in and it works fine with firefox. Couldn't get in all day until I saw the www3 thing on twitter.

I accessed slickdeals a few days ago, a Java box came up, then Internet Explorer crashed and has not worked since, nor does Firefox. They both shut down moments after starting. Maybe slickdeals is down while they fix something?

Obviously something is wrong, or there wouldn't be articles on it. I haven't been able to connect since yesterday.
