How to check if a website is down

I have been trying to access all morning and have been unsuccessful. Well, I found this great website that tells you if a site is down or if it is a personal problem (i.e., just me!).

You simply access the site above and type in the site you are trying to reach.


Is down for everyone or just me?  And then you get the response:


It's just you. is up.

Check another site?


Which isn't that wonderful as now I have to determine why. But it is good to know this site exists. It will save me a lot of wasted time as I hope it does you.

Happy 4th of July everyone!
