transparent. Each blocked website will automatically be added to the great
firewall on the homepage.
How it worksWe?ve opened a website in China and route your url request
on greatfirewallofchina.org through to our server in China. The server in China
opens the url and the result is send back. Our testing is only based on one
server on one location in China. We have different backup servers in different
locations in China might one go down.
Other locations and other servers may
give you different access to the various websites.

sophisticated, more refined and more extensive every year, involving an
increasing number of local as well as foreign parties in their system.
