Workbench URL wont work?

Hello, I am trying to access the developer workbench and I keep getting:

https://workbench.developerforce.com/

This page can’t be displayed
Make sure the web address https://workbench.developerforce.com is correct.
Look for the page with your search engine.
Refresh the page in a few minutes.

Workbench is back online. Sorry for the outage and the long delay getting it back online. It required a few people behind the scenes and took some time to get things coordinated. As has been mentioned a few times on this thread, Workbench is not a supported tool (see https://workbench.developerforce.com/terms.php for it's status), so unfortunately there is no SLA when issues like this occur.
Thank you to everyone to offered their gratitude for the service."

Hi,

I am in France and I have the same problem.

https://help.salesforce.com/articleView?id=000214031&type=1
workbench.developerforce.com is hosted on Heroku and thereby on AWS (Amazon Web Services), which uses the IP ranges documented at https://ip-ranges.amazonaws.com/ip-ranges.json, instead of the IP addresses used by Salesforce servers.

No current problems for AWS:
Amazon Web Services publishes our most up-to-the-minute information on service availability in the table below:
https://status.aws.amazon.com/

There could be a problem of DNS: DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN  (strange?)

Please note that Workbench is NOT a supported product of or supported by Salesforce.

Heroku statushttps://status.heroku.com/

No current problem.

A diligent176's solution here : https://github.com/ryanbrainard/forceworkbench/issues/710

@diligent176 gives a super easy solution. If you absolutely must have access to workbench right now, this is your solution and it is only about 5 minutes away:

It was pretty much these steps:
  1. Go to Heroku and sign up
  2. Click the button "Deploy to Heroku" from the Github page: https://github.com/ryanbrainard/forceworkbench
  3. A few clicks later it was running on Heroku.
  4. The oAuth doesn't work quite a smoothly as I'm used to, but I got logged in and ran my queries.
