The Backpage.com, the country’s biggest sex and dating website, is shutting down.
According to The Wall Street Journal, the shutdown is due to “market pressure and growing consumer concern about safety and privacy.”
The site has long been one of the most popular sites for illegal and illegal activities, and is the source of much of the pornography that is sold on Backpage, which also hosts ads for illegal goods and services.
The website has faced several legal problems, and has been shut down three times in recent years.
The latest shutdown came in June, when the site went dark for two days due to a cyber attack.
But backpage.org, which provides services to those who have been arrested for sex offenses, announced that it was launching a new website in November.
The new website, called Backpage Reloaded, aims to make the site safer and provide more privacy for customers.
“As we continue to evolve our services, we need to protect our users and remain open to new ways to provide the best experience possible,” a Backpage spokesperson told Business Insider in a statement.
