dukgo.com is now duck.co!
Before we created our own forum
here on the community platform, we were using 2 different domains for the community platform and the old forum:
- dukgo.com (community platform)
- duck.co (discussions forum)
Now that the entire DuckDuckGo community, forums, and ideas are consolidated here, everything can be operated on 1 domain: duck.co
This makes sharing (and remembering) the DuckDuckGo Community much easier! Any old URLs will still work and forward directly to duck.co (e.g. https://dukgo.com/blog will automatically go to https://duck.co/blog
Currently, this only involves the web platform, not the XMPP service. On XMPP, nothing has changed for you! The domain is still dukgo.com for the XMPP server, and we are working hard on making duck.co an available XMPP domain for your account too.
The problem with the XMPP server is that the system of XMPP is bound to your account name, which means that your XMPP identity is set under the dukgo.com domain. So, for example, your friends list would not work if we switched XMPP domains. Our XMPP service is, proudly, one of the world's largest open registration XMPP servers! Because of that, though, we can't just flip the switch! :)
If you're an XMPP user, this means you should still use dukgo.com as your XMPP domain and your client will handle everything properly. If you've been having any problems connecting to our XMPP service since yesterday (Nov. 25th, 2013), please contact us!
We are working together with some great folks from Prosody to have a feature which allows you to use both domains (dukgo.com and duck.co) as XMPP accounts with your existing community platform account. So, in the future, you can just connect to duck.co and get an independent XMPP account with the duck.co address.
