The problem is that Digg does not accept server-only URLs. The unit at Digg is stories, not websites. They have a filter that tries to detect whether an URL is a story or not. So instead of server.com, I submitted server.com/article.html and it worked:

It also takes into account the age of votes, and the frequency with which it gets them, so a post that gets 100 votes in an hour will rank higher than a post that gets 100 votes in 5 hours.
