HTTP 429 Error (And How To Fix It)

Welcome Back! The HTTP 429, otherwise known as the “Too Many Requests error” is not that common, but can still occur.

What does this error mean?

This error is shown when you make too many requests to the server within a period of time. The server will temporarily ban you from the website, and you will be forced to come back later.


How do I fix this error?

Generally, a server blocks a client device when it suspects it of an attack. Some servers are configured differently then others, so not all will act or respond the same.

  1. Restart the browser. Closing the browser and re-loading the website may be the solution to this problem.
  2. Clear your cache. If you are still having issues with the site, try clearing the cache and cookies of your browser.
  3. Use a VPN. By hiding your true IP, you may be able to bypass the servers restrictions.
  4. If you are still locked out, you may have to use a different device (Or a different network), or simply come back the next day.
  5. Lastly, try contacting the owner of the website to see if they can help you. If you are the owner, try contacting your hosting priovider.

Final Summary

This error can be quite annoying, but hopefully you were able to solve it, or at least bypass it. As always, if you see an error, please let us know!
