CD Baby Website Experiences Long Outage


(Hypebot) – Sunday afternoon CDBaby.com went down during what the company says was scheduled maintenance. Almost 24 hours later, the site, an essential sales and distribution hub for tens of thousands of independent artists, was still not online.

Almost 24 hours later, the site was still down. On the front page, a message added more detail: "During our scheduled routine maintenance of the website, we experienced an issue with our database that required us to take our system offline. This has taken longer to resolve than expected. We’re working around the clock to bring the site back online."

During the ongoing outage, CD Baby has kept its help center open to answer questions. As of 1:30 ET today, CDBaby said the site would "most likely" be back up by Monday afternoon, but as of 5PM EST, it is still toast. – Staff Writers
