    Hey Guys,

    Sorry for the inconvenience. We were down due to a Ddos. It being the weekend, technical support took a little time. We are back on now.

    Thanks
    DFI Staff

    Ddos attacks are ongoing but the countermeasures are in place. Please keep us updated if there are anymore errors or if the site is slow.

    Ddos attacks stress the servers, they don't do anything to the database.

    Thank you very much for the support Hussainji. Unfortunately the timing was very odd, and that's why it took extra time. :)
