Testing if your domain is accessible from China

A lot of developers from outside of China know about “the Great Firewall of China”, which normally leads to the question “is my domain accessible from China?”.

China isn’t the only county guilty of censorship on the internet, it is probably the one with the most people sitting behind their firewalls - so if your site isn’t getting past their censorship you could be missing out on a lot of traffic and customers.

Website Pulse has a tool that should help you test, I’ve found it useful in the past.

If you want to know more about censorship in China, Cloudwards have written a nice article on the topic on censorship in China.
