How to open blocked domains
In the past year, Indian government has blocked many domains and this will continue. When visiting some of your favorite sites you might see a message:
The url has been blocked under instructions of the Competent Government Authority or in compliance to the orders of Hon’ble Court.
Trick: Most of these sites still work if you use https instead of the normal http.
But changing the url everytime you visit that site’s page can be annoying.
This is for chrome users:
Just download a chrome extension called Switcheroo Redirector from here:
Hope this helps bypass the blocking and lets you continue surfing your favorite sites 🙂
Update: (18 Sep, 2016)
I guess most of the sites are now fully blocked – even the https versions of them. Now I use a chrome extension Zenmate.
It’s free version connects me through US.
I turn Zenmate on whenever I need to access a blocked site and keep it turned off otherwise.
