is your website working in china

We’ve checked many English websites that claim to check if your website is blocked in China and find that some of them produced inconsistent results. To make sure you get a more reliable result, here’s a pretty accurate way to check if your website is blocked in China.

How to check if your website is blocked

http://ce.cloud.360.cn/​ is a website that checks your website loading speed in different parts of mainland China and also Hong Kong and Taiwan.

If your website loads in Hong Kong and Taiwan but not in other parts of China then it means your website is blocked in mainland China. Hong Kong and Taiwan have different internet rules from mainland China.

Examples

1. A quick check of google.com revealed that it only loads in Hong Kong (香港) and Taiwan (台湾). The green color means the website works in those areas (fast loading speed). The red color means that the website doesn’t load in those areas.

2. A quick check of baidu.com reveals that it’s available in most areas of mainland China. The grey regions are not supported by http://ce.cloud.360.cn hence there are no statistics in those areas.

3. Below is a quick test of a random foreign website. When we were in Shanghai and Guangdong, we found that this website worked perfectly fine there. If the map shows that the website loads in two or more provinces in mainland China (except Taiwan and Hong Kong) then it usually means the website is available in most areas of China.
