Today I stumbled upon an article at LIFT talking about the website Ki-Media being blocked in Cambodia. According to the news, several customers of Ezecom ISP (Internet Service Provider) have been unable to gain access to the site. Why? The answer given by a customer service representative at Ezecom told The Phnom Penh Post that his manager told him to block access to the site, saying it’s the government’s order.
A customer service representative for Ezecom, contacted by The Post today, confirmed that his manager told him to block access to the website, saying the government had informed them to shut it down.
However, they haven’t clarified whether customers of other ISPs have got the same problems, and the government denied absolutely that it didn’t give any orders to shut down Ki-Media.
Well, I can clarify that. As a Metfone ISP customer, I haven’t been able to gain access to the site as well. Is it a coincident? Is it just me? Or is it not? Well, my guess is, in case the government didn’t want people in Cambodia to gain access to a site such as Ki-Media, they would tell each ISP in the country to block off its domain (blogspot.com). And what another coincident! I can’t get access to any other sites with the blogspot domain as well! Strange, isn’t it?
However, I couldn’t leave things be, for there are many blogspot sites I like! So, here’s a tricky method I’ve found to regain access to those supposed-to-be-blocked sites In case you’ve got the same problems as me, try this:
Phew! Problem solved, at least for the time being. Have a jolly nice day, everybody! Ciao! 😉
