VeePN in China: Everything You Need to KnowPosted on 27th February 2019
The Chinese government has its own vision of the content the citizens have the right to access, often disregarding the opinions of the said citizens. This is clearly reflected in the Great Firewall of China – the set of regulations and restrictions imposed on both inbound and outbound traffic.
China is an extremely hard market to enter for a VPN service, due to such strict and extensive regulations. And the recent ban on VPN services makes it even harder. It is still unclear, though, whether users will be held responsible for such “unauthorized” services or not.
Anyway, VeePN has been with the Chinese netizens from the very launch of our service, and we are planning to continue to do so. We believe that in the era of the Internet, limiting access to information sets the world progress back a few decades. We strive to provide every user with an exquisite online experience, protect them from government surveillance and snoopers, and allow access to all the information on the web.
Which Websites are Blocked in China?
Well, it’s easier to list the websites that are NOT blocked. We can’t say that Chinese people can’t use all the goodies of the Internet, but they rather have to use the substitutes approved by the Chinese government. Since so much international services are blocked there, the Chinese market has its own Google, YouTube and every other major online platform out there.
Here’s just a brief list of popular international websites and services that are blocked in China:
- Facebook Messenger
News Magazines & Aggregators
- New York Times
- The Guardian
- Business Insider
- The Wall Street Journal
- Financial Times
- Le Monde
- Google News
- Live Leak
Other Major Sites and Services
- Google Drive, Docs and Calendar
A whopping 10,000 domain names are blocked in mainland China! If the user doesn’t employ a good VPN that will allow him or her access all the websites above, and many more.
