Our Bad, DNS Misconfiguration Caused ProPakistani to Redirect to an Unknown URL

First thing first, it was my mistake, and I accept it – I shouldn’t had played with core DNS settings of our server, but it happened and ProPakistani.PK started redirecting to www.techlighter.com (an unknown blog for you – which is being operated by one of our writers).

No, we were not hacked.

Our Primary IP for base URL is, which somehow (by mistake obviously) got altered to – and all this started happening.

We had reverted back to the original IP as soon as it was changed, but that was too late.

While we apologize for the inconvenience, we are trying hard to speed up the process of getting back live. Thanks for all those emails, DMs, SMSes, calls – this truly made us realize how badly you missed us.

  • DNS changes take almost 24 hours to propagate. :) So there should still be people who are facing trouble while trying to access the website.

  • chalo acha hai meray ilawa bhi koi hai jo apni ghalati kabool karta hai,

    that is the spirit which i want in every pakistani.

    God accept my Apologise and bless our nation.
