China blocking access to Synthasite?

I am based in China and have tried to visit your featured sites - but in each case am receiving this error message: Safari can’t open the page.
Safari can’t open the page “” because the server where this page is located isn’t responding."

Could it be that China is blocking access to your hosting server - in which case it really won't help me to put up a site if no one can see it?

Hello Randy,

We have received reports that the Chinese government has blocked all our hosted sites. The error you will see is a "network timeout" when you try to access your site. We are not sure why our sites have been blocked, but we know that other similar services (including YouTube and WordPress) have been blocked in the same way.

After making enquiries we are told that we might never get an explanation or a solution. Unfortunately this is all we can tell you, I'm sorry I can't be of more help in this regard.

Kind Regards,
