Italy Banned/Censored the giant Mail.Ru website?!?


UPDATE: Apparently you can surpass the blocking of Mail.Ru. Switching to Google public DNS will solve your problem!

What is Mail.Ru ?

Mail.Ru Group (LSE:MAIL, listed since November 5, 2010) is a Russian Internet company. It was started in 1998 as an e-mail service (hence the name) and went on to become a major player in the Russo phone segment of Internet. As of 2013, according to com Score, websites owned by collectively had the largest audience in Russia and captured the most screen time.[3] Mail.Rus sites reach approximately 86% of Russian Internet users on a monthly basis and the company is in the top 5 of largest Internet companies, based on the number of total pages viewed. operates the second and third most popular Russian social networking sites, Odnoklassniki and Moy Mir, respectively.


If you live in Italy and you use Mail.Ru you have noticed that the website is death since yesterday 7/16/2014 maybe is the website DNS fault but we dont think that such a big company can make such a mistake, so we really believe that it was Censored in Italy by some Supreme Court like was, unlike Mail.Ru, now works. 

We wonder how is this possible how can such a GIANT website like Mail.Ru be Censored just like that, more importantly we have searched all over the Internet for news about this black out but we couldnt find any NEWS nor blogs talking about this but we found some complaints on twitter and more specifically there were 2. 

 At first we thought that we have a Internet Connection problem, after finding this post we knew that there is something wrong, If you live in Italy let us know in the comments down bellow if the website Mail.Ru works for you
