The World's Gate, owner of Chinese portal site edoors.com (edoors.com), announced on Tuesday that it has launched a web hosting service tailored for Chinese websites.
The company says the new service was launched in response to a new wave of censorship imposed by the Chinese government on many websites hosted inside China. In the past few weeks, many Chinese websites, especially interactive sites such as blogs and forums, have been shut down or denied Internet access by the Chinese government, in anticipation of the 17th Communist Party Congress this fall and the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.
"We understand the unique situation Chinese website owners face and we strive to safeguard their privacy and online safety," says Alex Wang, vice president of World's Gate
To cater to the need of stable and censorship-free web space, WG says it is offering a variety of web hosting packages and will host the data in facilities located outside of China, believed to be out of reach from the Chinese government's influence. WG says it is pleased to be able to offer a service that will enable users to freely discuss or post whatever content they wish. However, the company says it won't be hosting pornographic, hatred-inciting or terrorist-related websites.
