I just wanted to try the search API & went through the WHOLE procedure of signing up for a free Azure account just to get the key and when I try and use it, I'm getting a reply of :-

<h2>Our services aren't available right now</h2><p>We're working to restore all services as soon as possible. Please check back soon.</p>01GTUYAAAAAB1t1ZbFvWqS4v1fxcVlGAnTE9OMDRFREdFMDYyMABFZGdl

So is it really down? If it is, it really doesn't seem like a reliable service sigh

    Which Bing Search API are you referring to?

    Okay, thanks, you're referring to Bing Web Search. I'm unable to reproduce this issue. Can you tell me the region of your resource so I can verify?
