  • Hey Anurag. First of all congratulations on new shorter domain. You might be working on it yet, so I just wanted to tell you two issues I found:

    tchkr.us redirects to an SSL error page of techacker.com
    This post’s short-URL http://tchkr.us/1pCvFU8 redirects to http://www.techacker.com/2014/04/%postname%/ (which is 400 page).

    Fix them if possible.
    Bye.

    • Hi Gaurav,
      Thanks a lot for checking it out quickly. In fact it was my mistake that caused this issue.
      I had tchkr.us pointing to https://www.techacker.com instead of http://www.techacker.com. Which is why it was going to an SSL page.
      I have fixed it now. If you can please try and confirm it works, I will appreciate your help.

      Another thing, which is the post you got the short url from in your comment. It will help me rootcause that issue as well.

      Really appreciate you taking time to help me out.
      Cheers
      Anurag

      • I am surprised… earlier it was showing http://tchkr.us/1pCvFU8 as the short-url, now it’s showing http://tchkr.us/1iHp7BK. Strange internet.

        How about http://techacker.com/announcing ? 😀

        • I know, it is strange. Another thing I noticed that a different short URL shows up every time you visit the post.
          I guess it just a random key, but if someone shares the link, it gets recorded. May be that’s how it works.
          Thanks again for checking out. Really appreciate your help.
          – Anurag ☺
