Dear Paltalk Members,
On Monday, some of you probably experienced difficulty logging into Paltalk. The reason for the difficulty is that we experienced a huge spike in traffic to one of our core login routers. As the internet has grown, it has gotten easier and easier for rogue users to produce large streams of illegitimate traffic to Internet Service Providers such as Paltalk. We have been working overtime to mitigate the problem in two ways. The first is that we have upgraded all of the network hardware responsible for filtering out illegitimate internet traffic to the routers. Second, we built a new release of Paltalk that has more robust capability to login even under the most severe traffic conditions. The new release is now our production version and can be downloaded from Paltalk.com.
We appreciate each and every one of our users and we assure you that Paltalk continues to invest heavily in the best Network Infrastructure that money can buy to insure your uninterrupted enjoyment of Paltalk. Once again, we apologize for any difficulty you experienced and have worked very hard to ameliorate the root cause of the issue.
