If you’ve read today’s papers or Malaysiakini (Malaysia Today blocked! Order from MCMC) you would have known that Malaysia government has blocked access to the Malaysia today website a.k.a Raja Petra’s blog.
For some reason I’m still able to view that website and I just realised why. It’s because I’m not using TMNet’s DNS service.. I’m using OpenDNS service. Free and censor free.
All I can think is that TMNet has blocked access to that website by blocking the domain name itself and not the IP address in their DNS service. Therefore, if you were to use a different DNS service you may be able to still view that website.
OpenDNS’s nameserver address are as follow: 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52.
