Card Validator Unable to Resolve Address


First time trying to use the Validator today, and it’s not working for me today. I’m getting this message for almost every link:

ERROR: Fetching the page failed because the fetcher cannot resolve the address.

Is there something obvious I’m missing? Why wouldn’t it be able to resolve the address?


What is the address? are you using a DNS name, or an IP address?


I tried a number of different urls (no IP addresses), and all of them were failing with that error (seems to me like there may have been some sort of networking issue with the underlying machine).

The specific link I was hoping to test is

However, since posting this, the service seems to have come back up, and now successfully scrapes that and any other link I provide it with.
