Plenty of Fish suffers major outage

Popular free dating site Plenty of Fish has suffered a major outage this afternoon.

Visitors to the site saw only a “Bad Request (Invalid Hostname)” message on the screen, and we’re unable to get any further into the service.

Notably this type of error would normally indicate a domain issue with the site, that may mean that it may take some time to fix. A fix to an IP address for example has to propagate across the web, and at worst case this can take up to 48 hours.

There’s no official word yet from Plenty of Fish on the outage. As of 2:30pm PST Saturday Plenty of Fish remains offline. We’ll update the post if we here anything.

Update: seems to be back up as of 4pm PST. No word yet from Plenty of Fish as to what caused the problem
