Add index.html1 to the end of your URL and then Digg should accept your submission, it worked for me.

1 or index.htm, or index.asp, or default.htm, or whatever the webserver uses for the default document


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:
