Hello guys,

I published my website with yola a few days ago, and most of the people i want to show my website to, said they cannot open my website.
And when i try to open myself, most of the time works normally, but a few times i already got an error msg.

Please help me and tell me what i am doing wrong.

here goes my website's link: www.cesarcurti.com

I'm about to publish another website and i don't want to have the same problem when i start promoting my website.

I will appreciate a lot your help,
Thank you very much and have a great week,

Cheers,

Hi Cesar,

I have taken a look at your site and taken a look at some of the setup details regarding your domain. All seems to be in working order.

Could you please tell me what the error message was that you received, this might shed some light on the issue. Also, could you tell me which country you are operating out of?

Any extra information will help.

Hello Dre,

That's really good to know. Thanks a lot.

The error message i received earlier was the same when you type a wrong address. Something like "Server not found". As if my website didn't exist.

Maybe could be because i'm operating from China, and my website is full of youtube videos. I can see them because i use a VPN but most of the people don't.
Do you think this should be a reason?

Thank you very much for replying me, i really appreciate that.
Cheers,

Hey there Cesar,

Yes, if you are in China, that would be the reason you cannot see your published site. It is terribly unfortunate, but 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 inquiries we are told that we might never get an explanation or a solution. Unfortunately this is all we can tell you.

Hello Emmy, how are you?

#%$@@^ Chinese Government. lol

That's what i thought. Even myself, when i don't have my VPN on, i can't open it.
And that's the message i got just 5 minutes ago "network timeout".

My concern is, since my target are people out of China, will they be able to open my website normally?

If yes, problem solved!!! :)

Oh no, but for my other website that i'm about to publish tonight, i'll target China as well. :(

There's any way i could publish my other website, and make able to work in china as well????
That would be a big problem for me!!! :(

Please let me know asap. Thank you very much for your time.

Hello Cesar,
Yes, people outside of China will be able to open your site just fine, it is just people in China who are not able to view the sites. Yes, it is very sad and I know frustrating for many people. I wish we were able to do something, but this is definitely out of our control.

Hello Emmy,

Thanks for your reply.
That's really sad, but as you said, its out of our control.
My friend's website hosted at Go daddy doesn't work in China as well.

Take care and have a great day
