It works, just redirects to DuckDuckGo.com and it's a secure way of searching.

I have never seen it not work or had anyone else report the problem. Are you going directly to http://dukgo.com/ ? https://dukgo.com/ indeed does not work -- is that the issue?

For Firefox:
Just save DDG as a bookmark and tag it with "duck" or whatever word you want to use. Then you won't need to type the long URL. Moreover you can add it to your browser's search engines and give it a keyword like "dd".

That's really odd. I've never heard anyone else having any trouble with it. It just does a simple redirect to https://duckduckgo.com/. At what frequency does it happen? In all browsers? In all network locations you operate on?

I am going to switch DNS providers. This should take effect within about 24hr. If you see it again after that please let me know.

Mine has quit working too; most of my searches end up with "Done" and a blank screen.

Hmm... I am not having any problems in Firefox.

It is supposed to redirect to https://duckduckgo.com/

Is the redirection working correctly? Or does it just stop there -- the fact that you're saying "searches" indicates to me that the redirection works but then the searches do not?

No issues with dukgo.com here either. Maybe you're using a redirect blocking plug-in? (like Firefox's Redirect Cleaner)

I am unable to make a connection to Dukgo.com today. DuckDuckGo.com works fine.

Should be fine now.

But in general you may want to move to http://ddg.gg/

I believe Yegg wants everyone to use ddg.gg instead of dukgo.com because dukgo.com is going to be the home of the DuckDuckGo community platform. (see this topic)

Thanks.

http://ddg.gg/ is convenient. I will use that.
