In the memory of late vocalist Chester Bennington, Linkin Park launched a suicide prevention website Saturday, it was reported.

The rock band took to Twitter to announce the launch of their website. The tribute site named #RIPCHESTER features a photograph of the late frontman of the rock band Linkin Park performing on stage. The website also features a separate space for Bennington's fans to post their thoughts via live social media feeds.

Hours after it was launched, the website suffered connectivity issues, presumably due to high traffic. However, it was later restored and the Linkin Park singer’s fans were able to access it without any glitches.

Along with Bennington's photograph, the website also features a message. It reads:

The 41-year-old vocalist allegedly hanged himself at his Palos Verdes Estates home in Los Angeles County on Thursday. His body was discovered at 9 a.m. PST (12 p.m. EDT) after officers responded to an emergency situation in the area around that time.

The news of his death was confirmed on Twitter by Linkin Park vocalist Mike Shinoda who wrote, “Shocked and heartbroken, but it's true. An official statement will come out as soon as we have one.”

Mourning Bennington’s death, Linkin Park also canceled a North America tour that was scheduled to kick off in Massachusetts on July 27. Live Nation, the concert promoter, took to Twitter to announce the cancellation Friday, reported.

“The Linkin Park One More Light North American Tour has been canceled. Refunds avail at point of purchase. Our thoughts to all affected,” the tweet read.

Bennington who had struggled with substance abuse for years was a close friend of late Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell who died by suicide at a Detroit hotel room May 18, Deadline reported.

Disturbed by Cornell’s sudden death, Bennington had penned a heartbreaking letter to his late friend.

The letter read,

I dreamt about the Beatles last night. I woke up with Rocky Raccoon playing in my head and a concerned look my wife’s face. She told me my friend had just passed away. Thoughts of you flooded my mind and I wept. I’m still weeping, with sadness, as well as gratitude for having shared some very special moments with you and your beautiful family. You have inspired me in many ways you could never have known. Your talent was pure and unrivalled. your voice was joy and pain, anger and forgiveness, love and heartache all wrapped up into one. I suppose that’s what we all are. You helped me understand that. I just watched a video oof you singing “A Day In The Life” by the Beatles and thought of my dream. I’d like to think you were saying goodbye in your own way. I can’t imagine a world without you in it. I pray you find peace in the next life. I send my love to your wife and children, friends and family.

Thank you for allowing me to be part of your life.

With all my love.

Your friend, Chester.
