I can’t get to my site! Is WordPress.com’s server down?
Probably not. WordPress.com runs on thousands of servers located in several separate data centers in different parts of the US and around the world. We’re not perfect and we do occasionally experience problems, but our network is designed so that sites continue working even when servers or parts of the network fail. Outages are rare and brief.
If you’re curious, you can always check on our current performance and availability status.
