I have been with Hostgator for more than 8 years now and was always happy with their services. However, since moving to China, I am unable to login to my Cpanel without a VPN, and with VPN being increasingly blocked here, it is getting more and more difficult to operate my sites.
Therefore, I would appreciate suggestions for a well known - stable host, that is not blocked in china and is reasonable priced. I am looking for a plan that is similar to Hostgator’s Baby Plan.
Your best bet would be to contact various hosts and ask them. They will usually give you this information quickly. If not, try out some hosts who have 30 day money back trials. This way you can see within the first day if it is allowed in China or not.
The great firewall of China has managed to suck in another victim. From my personal experience the great firewall of China is sporadic on the IPs and networks it blocks. A hosting company may not be able to provide you that information because they don’t know themselves unless they are told by a user.
Weird, cause Hostgator isn’t being blocked in china(i.e You have access to site hosted on hostgator).
They have thousands of servers. There’s no way to check if they all are perfectly reachable from China. Besides, the Chinese government can block sites using any method they want, so you can end up with only one of two sites hosted on the same server being blocked.
