Digg is Down

*** UPDATE: Digg is back up, now ***

After reports yesterday that Digg has ceased taking new registrants and speculation that Digg v4 was on its way, the site went down today with an error.

In past instances of planned an even unplanned outages, Digg has always put up a “be back soon” page with links to other sites. As of now, that is not the case. Instead, it’s showing an error that reads, “Http/1.1 Internal Server Error 11”.

A source at Digg confirmed yesterday that the New Digg would not be going live this weekend so it is likely some sort of unforeseen error associated with testing or migration.

We’re still waiting to hear from Digg via email, but they posted this to their community Twitter account:

We will update this post as more information is available.

  1. I’ve noticed this glitch too when I accidentally hit the register button, instead of login. Maybe, they’re upgrading their servers as millions are using their platform? I love the way the search engines crawl a site to the top pages whenever you bookmark it via Digg. Besides, it’s so easy to search for trending news using that social bookmarking site.
