    Dear members the success and popularity of dfi has a burning effect on many , the downtime , experienced yesterday was a result of the high recent popularity and soaring charts on the part of dfi.

    The DFI server was pinged with Ddos bots to hamper and deny users from loggin in , by this jeature the attacker aims to deny our members the right to access dfi - clearing harassing our userbase.

    We have taken all necessary steps to avoid such effects to a minimum, but as you are aware DDOS attacks are not completely unavoidable , during an attack we try and mitigate it and bring the site back as soon as we can.

    We need your trust and support in these trying times because we are working hard enough to get DFI back to you as early as possible.


    Now or even in future if you experience any slow site or difficulty to login or any issues do contact us on [email protected] , or check updates on Indian political Forum.


    Our server host is working together with us to mitigate such attacks and keep the downtime to a minimum but as you know no site is immune to such ddos attacks including even the biggest of concerns and companies.DDOS= DENIAL OF SERVICE to legitimate users which is basically an act of jealousy and terrorism.







    DEFY such acts support DFI

    We have been following a policy of staying clear of such acts even though we have suffered a lot over the last two years from these attacks.
    I now wonder if it is time for taking legal action against the perpetrators.

    Yes many thanks to the team in getting DFI back. I know you guys have barely blinked an eyelid in the last 4 days to work on the site and get it working again. You guys really deserve all the kudos and may be a little bit of a break.

    Thanks to the admins for spending a lot of $$$$s as well.

    Welcome back Guys,

    Its unfortunate the forum was down during these important days, lets hope the cloud system could reduce future DDOS.
