    Title says it all. I've notice it slowing down over the past week or two, but the last two days have been really bad. My internet connection is not the issue as other sites load just fine. I'm not the only one to be experiencing this am I?

    Been running like garbage lately, often timing out.

    For me it's still super slow. Sometime it takes even 6-7 seconds before responding.

    Terrible again for me today. Clearly some ongoing issue, any chance of some official acknowledgement of this and explanation of cause and plan to fix?

    I'm in the UK if it makes any difference.

    Same. It's barely working for me. I'm used to the occasional 503 from the site but it's almost impossible to use right now.

    We're aware of this and are looking into moving the server onto better hardware

    Thanks for the info and you have my sympathies, web server/hosting issues are not much fun.

    Can you also move the asset store server to better hardware? Its very slow in the unity editor when I want to download one of my 500 assets, just listing my assets takes 2 minutes. ( 100 Mbit connection )

    I've always felt that the design of the assetstore is specifically optimized to help you impulse-buy MORE assets, not to find or use the ones you've bought! (This is far from a unique thing in digital storefronts, to be fair...)

    Did we saturate even the new hardware? Was fine until today, now it's again superslow.
    Or do you still need to move it?

    Came here to say the same thing. Been getting tons of 503 server errors and was wondering if everything is alright.

    The forum site is really slow compared to any other site I visit - are will still awaiting server upgrades?

    It's getting worse. The last week or so, about one in five attempts to open a page on the forum ends in a 503.

    The sympathy that I expressed in mid May regarding server trouble is fast being replaced with extreme dismay that this situation has still not been resolved.

    Title made me laugh - to the point, exactly how it feels for months.

    And last week it started to me too. So I will just join the queue and throw the stones.

    The forum is starting to be useless, it loads on every fifth refresh and then it loads slowly like a turtle running with severe back pain.

    Loading is slower than molasses for me if I visit anything within unity3d.com and unity.com domains. I think someone or some group is DOS-ing the site... or there is just too much data for the system to handle. Hoping unity3d.com / unity.com gets migrated soon to a more better and powerful server/s. If that will take long, maybe temporarily use Cloudflare or something similar for now if DOS is the concern.

    I feel like it’s 1986 and I’m using a 300 baud dial up modem.

    Seriously, I’ve been on this forum since 2006 and it’s never been this bad.

    Why the radio silence from Unity? Can someone from Unity please do something? At least respond.

    Whatever you just did in the last hour made a huge difference over the last few weeks, so keep it like that! :)

    For months the extreme slowness and failure to load pages has been rather intermittent for me, so I wont assume its fixed just yet.
