My 8Mbps broadband plan is sucking out money from the past 2 months; somehow I am managing to exceed the 4GB download limit.
With the intent of checking on some new plans, I tried to access the Airtel website http://www.airtel.in
I ended up with this:
The URL was being re-directed to http://www.airtel.in/srilanka/srilanka….. Looks like the site was hacked by somebody !
Talking of Airtel web portal, Airtel seems to be changing its domain every other month; Few months back, it was airtelworld.com (It was something else before this) and now its Airtel.in !
And with every domain change, they seem to be changing the URL for some of their important offering e.g. Airtel Data card.
Check an example URL for Airtel Data card:
And its not just this URL; every URL in the site seems to have a awkward “level2” and path parameter. Also the path parameter seems to get a new value with every domain change and makes linking to their site a pain !
Update: Airtel portal is back in action; not sure who hacked it or whether it was some upgrade issue. The countless number of “srilanka” in the URL in a way conveys that it was probably not a server upgrade issue !
