Bluehost Web Hosting Help
Clients in China Are Unable to View My Website
Clients in China are unable to view my website. My website's content doesn't contain any objectionable material.
We offer shared hosting. In shared hosting, we host several hundred websites on one server; those same sites will share one single IP address, referred to as a shared IP address.
Getting a dedicated IP address would make your website separate, by having its own unique IP address. So if the shared IP address was blocked, your site wouldn't automatically be blocked along with it.
- Instead of having a unique IP address for every domain, you share one IP address with all of the accounts on your server.
- The downside to a shared IP address is that some countries, like China, censor particular websites by their IP address.
- If a website they censor is on the same server as yours, and China blocks that website using the shared IP address, then your website and the hundreds of others on that server are also blocked.
- This means that any clients in China would be unable to view your site.
Additional Notes:The Golden Shield Project, sometimes referred to as the Great Firewall of China, is a censorship and surveillance project operated by the Ministry of Public Security (MPS) of the People's Republic of China.
