Geoblocking

Not so long ago the internet was a place of free communication and unlimited freedom of expression. Now, due to commercial and state interests, these freedoms are becoming increasingly limited. Here we’re talking not only about dictatorships such as North Korea or communist states like Cuba, but also of large economic states such as China, popular travel destinations such as Turkey, or modern western states such as the USA. What begins with the blocking of harmless entertainment media can even go so far that it is practically only domestic websites or portals, which are supported by the government, that are accessible.

Geoblocking restricts internet content

Almost weekly a story about new forms of censorship and monitoring hit the headlines, which are aiming for blocking media, free speech and even art, which are considered as not in accordance with the state. With a view towards current political events on our world, the number of people who have an unrestricted internet access will go down in the near future. Because, when allocating your IP address, your provider integrates a country-specific indicator, it is possible to trace the country from which you are connected to the internet. The current IP address is electronically transmitted to the page operator when the page is called up. Then, once your IP address has been assigned a geographical origin, this operator decides whether or not to display his page content to you. However, with a VPN solution there is the option to prevent the identification of your own location.
