Malaysia ISPs Banned go.urlcash.net

Date Tuesday, 28 July 2009  Posted in Category Computer Resources  Tags , , ,   Comment 2 Comments »

If you click on a link lead to web page under http://go.urlcash.net/ and see blank page, it is not server down or webpage error but the Malaysia ISPs have blocked this website.

However, you can still view it by using other DNS instead of Malaysia ISPs:

Yahoo! Babel Fish

1. Yahoo! Babel Fish (http://babelfish.yahoo.com) – It is a free service

Copy and paste the urlcash’s URL (i.e. http://go.urlcash.net/12345678) into ‘Translate a web page’ text box, then select any language to English and click on ‘Translate’ button. The advantage of using this service is user don’t need to configure or change any settings on the computer, simple and easy solution for one-time off usage.

OpenDNS

2. OpenDNS (http://www.opendns.com) – It is also a free service

Follow the instruction at this page https://www.opendns.com/start/device/windows-xp. It will takes about 5 mins to complete the setup/configuration process, however user needs to create a free OpenDNS account in order to use its service. OpenDNS is a well-known free DNS service for public, beside it’s free, one of the good alternative solution for user who needs to browse web pages @ http://go.urlcash.net/ often.

I just conducted a research on Malaysia’s major banking and financial institutions website, and found many bankers still can grow their online market and brand if they put in more effort into online promotions.
