China blocks Google Site  

Posted by ajay karthick in , ,

Google Web sites including its English search engine became inaccessible in China late Wednesday, following the country's criticism of Google last week for serving up pornographic search results.

China appeared to block sites including Google.com, Gmail and Google Docs around 9:30 p.m. local time, when complaints about the sites not loading began appearing on Twitter


Google.com appeared to be blocked through interference with the DNS (Domain Name System). The DNS translates alphabetic URLs such as google.com into a corresponding IP (Internet Protocol) address so the Web site's server can be reached. Google.com could be viewed by directly visiting its IP address.
