The website, as well as specific services such as the Roblox Avatar Shop, could go down on their own. To this end, we suggest checking the official Roblox status page.

There's also the ROBLOX Status Twitter account. This is a third-party account not affiliated with Roblox Corporation, which tracks the server status and individual services in real-time.

Lastly, as one of our favourites, the third-party DownDetector page for Roblox allows anyone to send in a report if they are experiencing any issues, and check if others have experienced issues with Roblox servers or services as well in the past 24 hours.
