Adf.ly is a URL Shorten service which pays for every visit your URL gets. But some what it’s anooying because of ads. Recently I noticed that adfly links are not opening, at first I think its a temporary problem. But later I figured out that Adf.ly has been blocked by DoT (Department of Telecommunications) of India.
When you try to access an adf.ly url you will get a blank screen like this,
Adf.ly has blocked the default unsecured URL(http) but has not blocked the secured URL (https). Also, the site is accessible using a sub domain.
Here are two methods to open adf.ly urls.
Access the Adf.ly link with https.
For example, https://adf.ly/Ta3UZ instead of http://adf.ly/Ta3UZ.
So you just need to add https:// at the begining.
By using a sub domain.
Adding a V2 prefix at the begining.
For example v2.adf.ly/Ta3UZ
