Pornhub creates a new domain to bypass India’s porn ban

Pornhub creates a new domain to bypass India’s porn ban. A few months ago, the Supreme court had ordered to ban all pornographic sites in India. Although, the move was opposed by many as the list of blocked sites included some sites offering non-adult content as well and hence, the ban was lifted. Now, again Uttarakhand High Court has ordered to ban 847 pornographic sites including Pornhub, the largest adult entertainment site. However, Pornhub has now launched a mirror site to bypass this porn ban.

The popular adult site has created a new separate domain – ‘.net’ instead of ‘.com’ – specifically for the Indian internet users who want to access their site. In response to Pornhub getting censored and blocked in India, our fans there can now fully access the site at Pornhub.net,” the company said in Tweet.

According to Pornhub’s yearly review of 2017, India is listed as the third largest consumer in terms of traffic. Pornhub’s Vice President declared a discontent over this and stated that they are ready to co-operate with the government on sites showing illegal porn such as child pornography. But, banning website like Pornhub which has strong terms and conditions regarding viewership is disappointing. With the launching of the mirror site Pornhub.net, the company has provided an alternate method for their Indian consumers to get their content.

“In the meantime, to provide our Indian users with Pornhub content again as quickly as possible, we have set up a mirror site. We understand this has been a hard time for our fans and hope this will provide them with an outlet to help alleviate some of their stress,” Price said.

Besides a mirror site, there are also other methods such as using VPN (Virtual Private Network), Tor web browser, a different DNS server, or similar methods to bypass local ISP-level block.
