Short url of duckduckgo is not working, for some reason. Am I the only one experiencing this problem?

I just tested using FF 26 on Windows 7, DDG.GG loaded with no problems.

Hi, are you trying to connect to https://ddg.gg/ ? If yes, that won't work, as ddg.gg doesn't support HTTP/SSL. Please just remove the "s" like this: http://ddg.gg/.

Hmm... that's odd! I can't reproduce the problem.
According to multiple sources the short domain (at this writing) appears to work.

I agree. I've tried from several different browsers, several OS's, desktop\laptops and mobile devices, from different IP addresses, no problems here. It even worked using Safari on Windows 7! (haha).

OK, that information helps. What browser are you using? Versions are helpful too.

Modified Iceweasel to Mozzilla Firefox interface. It used to work fine for some time.

Sorry, I don't have that environment available, the closest that I could get is kubuntu with FF and with (I think) Konqueror. In any case (and you don't want to hear this) DDG.GG forwarded immediately and successfully to https://duckduckgo.com.

I continues to point to something in your environment, hard to diagnose over the wire.

Have you tried starting iceweasle/firefox in safe mode?
Close it, then run in a terminal:
Sh Code:
iceweasel -safe-mode http://ddg.gg

Did you try that with your browser without any addons/extensions? I had a similar problem with HTTPS Everywhere 5.something beta which broke all those redirections (HTTP 302, 301, …).
