Inaccessibility of own website for more around a month - web site
The Concerned Authority,
With your kind permission I would like to convey a few words to you about a problem I am experiencing since last one month.I am the user of Webs.com ,a US based free web hosting service which provides free domain for building web site with strict term of service and conditions.From 9th August 2010 onwards I am not able to access my web site www.royshealthzone.webs.com,which I have built under this domain but can be accessible from abroad.Like wise there are more than 100s of users from all over India facing the same problem. When we have communicated this issue to the webs support service,they said that this is the ISP who has blocked the websites under webs.com in India.But when we cross checked with our ISPs and as well as TRAI,we came to know that they are not reponsible for this unnecessary blockage.Further investigation has revealed that,it is not the websites but the corresponding IP address- 188.8.131.52(webs.com) which has been blocked and thereby all the member sites that use the address http://membersite.webs.com will not be accessible any more in India under the instructions of certain official.
We are really thankful to one official Dr. Gulshan Rai,The Director general (e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org) , I-CERT (Indian Computer Emergency Response Team ) and GC(Cyber Laws Group Formulation & Enforcement Division), Department of Information Technology for his immense support and promptness of feed back regarding this issue.According to them the aforesaid IP address has been blocked under an instruction( Court order:No- 1403 of 2010,Dated- 7.8.2010) issued by the Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate, Mumbai to the Director,Indian Computer emergency Response Team,department of Information Technology to block the web site named http://donotdial100.webs.com.
Since the actual court order with the instruction consists both the url and IP address of the offending site which is already blocked by the webs as per their official statement; the department of C.E.R.T-In, might have blocked the concerned web site and as well as the IP address too.Here the problem arises.The corresponding IP address is for all the users of webs in India,hence apart from the offending site,all the other websites having the same IP address and url as www.xxx.webs.com gets blocked and is not accessible throughout the India.
Sir,we are all the webs user using this free web hosting service for social networking,educational purpose and for personal business and every day we are missing our valuable customer.Therefore we are here by requesting you to kindly look into the mater and do the needful.
We shall be highly obliged if you initiate some necessary steps on immediate basis to resolve this issue.
