Many websites in the world are blocked by the Great Firewall of China, and some of them are even blocked by accident. Enter the URL and check whether your website can actually work in China.
China habitually blocks websites that are hosted outside its mainland. It prevents external organizations from serving content that the administration feels inappropriate as per the local regulations, or If you're using a hosting provider outside China, chances are, the IP address will have a high probability of getting blocked. Most organizations outside China use shared hosting. If China blocks any website's IP address under the shared service, all the other platforms on the DNS or IP would be affected.

1. The firewall scans URLs and blocks connections if a website contains sensitive keywords, including gambling, porn, social media, and specific video hosting sites.
2. The domain name was engaged in illegal activities previously, and it has been blocked before.
3. The Great Firewall can monitor each DNS query from a DNS resolver around the world to ensure there is no sensitive query.
4. China's Firewall system may also suffer from overblocking, a situation where many websites share an IP or address block with a banned website, causing these innocent websites as unintended collateral damage.
The main reason why domain names are blocked is due to the sensitive content, most of them are automatically blocked due to the detection of the Great Firewall of China, and a few are reported by others.
