Website access internationally

Hi experts.

I made this website  

It works fine in Denmark, but they cannot access the website in India.
Im trying to troubleshoot on this.

Can you help me? Can you access the website, and which country are you in while doing so?
What could i do to make it work?

Should i just change to .com? How, why can i know if India is blocking .dk domains?

:S

Best regards
Mike Kristensen

I can view your website in Hong Kong.

India, like China does impose restriction from access to certain international websites for Internet censorship purpose and you can do nothing about it unless you can change the hosting location of your website to one inside India. It is not about whether the domain name is .dk or .com.

What if i embed the page using iframe, into a blog? Would india's restriction stop the embedding?

Or what can i else do? Tell users to use vpn? Its a temperary project.

Yes

Blocking and bypassing are a pair of continuous activities and they will never end.

If you want to make sure your website will not be blocked, the only feasible method is to finding a web hosting service providers in India and abide to whatever rules imposed by them.

From my readings, it seems that India will allow websites from the United States but you need to check with your audience in India first.

After all, it is not about where is country designated by your domain name but the geographical location resolved from the IP address where your website resides.
