Service Outage: You Won’t Be Able to Create New Short URLs this Weekend

Update (2/20): The migration was a success. Thanks for your patience.

Beginning on Friday, February 17 at 9pm ET, you will not be able to create new short Go.USA.gov URLs. All existing short Go.USA.gov URLs will continue to work. Also, new users will not be allowed to register for an account.

You should be able to create short URLs again on Monday morning, if not sooner. We need to temporarily stop creating short URLs so we can move Go.USA.gov to a new hosting environment. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Also, for a short period of time after 9pm ET on Friday, Go.USA.gov will be taken completely offline. You won’t be able to create new short URLs and existing short URLs will not work. We anticipate that the service will be down for an hour or less.

We tried to complete this migration during the weekend of February 4, but had to postpone it because of technical difficulties.
