Yipee! BlogSpot Accessible

Thursday, July 20, 2006

Finally, BlogSpot is accessible. The first site i opened today at my office where i'm doing summer training was my blog. And was really excited to see that my blog is accessible now. Posted this on Orkut and got another confirmation that it is working on Airtel, Banglore. I just could not resist to write a post about this and share my experiences of the past two days.

For the past two days, I spent all my time on the internet just getting updates and posting my comments on this issue. I was really shocked when I came to know that BlogSpot has been banned. Even my profile on Orkut contained the message 'BlogSpot banned in India'. I even wrote an e-mail to the President of India and was just planning to file an RTI.

All this was actually due to the mistake of Indian ISPs. The govenment only ordered them to ban 3 blogs on BlogSpot, while the ISPs banned the full blogspot.com domain. The reason being the technology they use. They were not able to block certain sub-domains which is not very hard to do (I can say that because a similar technology is also use4d in my college where they have blocked just certain subdomains of portals like yahoo).

Now the fact lies that we can finally access BlogSpot. So, time to party and have fun.

It seems that the ban is now lifted. For me, I can open my blogs and reach your blog with its original address. I hope that other bloggers, who are using different ISPs may be accessing their blog without any hindrance.

I am using Reliance Infocom.
