      This is the address the link takes me to:
      https://www.paypal.com/uk/webapps/mpp/home
      Which i can reach ok using google dns.

      It's the same address i already have bookmarked for my own account & never had a problem getting there.

      Thanks for the replies. And yes anything that ends paypal.COM seems to work perfectly for me too.
      I bet alot of people type in paypal.co.uk tho and that's still not working for me.
      Seems to be a DNS issue.

      The .co.uk address redirects to .com for me.

      Re: Anyone having issues accessing paypal

      Paypal has always redirected me from paypal.co.uk to paypal.com/uk .However the issue was that paypal.co.uk when i made first post was just coming up with "page cannot be displayed" no redirection, dead site.
      I think it was a dns issue because i simply started using paypal.com which still worked. Now, few days later paypal.co.uk is back and redirecting to paypal.com/uk like the old days so issue is over.
