    Working just fine here.

    Not that it matters because in one location there might be some outages.

    works here just fine.

    does google actually go down?

    I find that hard to believe, those greedy asses wouldnt allow such a thing.
    hell one hour down time might cost someone their house payment or something.
    Lord forbid if they could handle loosing a dime, they would have to let that loss bleed onto some poor adscence guys profits.

    If you can't open Google website, firstly you must check your computer settings then your country ISP.

    This happens seldom here too. I try bing at times like these and it works. But this issue is temporary as i have seen it. Try reconnecting to your internet or try a proxy to reach the site. Also mobile sites can be opened too

    Went down for me last week for a few hours. Maybe they are doing maintenance at your isp or something that's causing it.
