Am I joking?

No.

Well, Today I tried to check my website ranking in alexa and got surprised!

Not duo to a huge ranking difference from my last week ranking, but found a message on alexa.com website

**YOU ARE NOT AUTHORIZED TO ACCESS THIS WEB PAGE AS PER THE DOT COMPLIANCE**

It was shocking for me to believe that Alexa, owned by Amazon is banned by Department of Telecommunications (DoT) of India.

As all of you probably know that alexa.com is not a website contains any kind of objectionable content, I can’t understand why Indian Govt took such a decision!

As much as I remember, in October 2018, Indian Government DoT ordered all Internet Service providers (ISP) to block more than 800 Porn website, but why alexa.com ?

Alexa.com founded in 1996, was later acquired by Amazon in 1999 is a company provides website traffic data, global ranking and so much more information on any given website.

I tried to access alexa.com via Jio and Vodafone but sadly blocked by both ISP, do check yourself and let me know if it’s blocked by your ISP too?

Alexa.com is Banned by Indian Government (DOT)
