Error code 505 on Amazon typically happens when there is an issue with the server that is hosting the Amazon website. This can be due to a variety of reasons, such as high traffic levels on the site, maintenance being performed on the server, or an issue with the server itself. When this error code occurs, it typically means that the Amazon website is unavailable and users will not be able to access it.
1. Check your internet connection
- Open your internet browser and type “netstat -an”
- The output of this command will list all the active TCP and UDP connections on your computer.
- If you see an active TCP connection between your computer and amazon.com, then your internet connection is working.
- If you do not see an active TCP connection between your computer and amazon.com, then your internet connection may be faulty or blocked.
- To test your connection further, open a web page and see if it loads quickly. If not, your internet connection may be broken.
- To confirm that your internet connection is indeed broken, try to connect to amazon.com from a different computer. If you are able to connect to amazon.com from another computer, then your internet connection is probably broken on your original computer.
2. Check the URL you are trying to access
- Copy and paste the URL into your web browser.
- If the URL is not working, try replacing the "www" with "https://" or "https://www.amazon.com".
- If the URL still does not work, please contact Amazon support.
3. Try accessing the site from a different browser
