Ok heres the thing, read carefully:

In my office, as usual, the websites are blocked, BUT its blocked in such a way that the program will check the "category" of the website first. and IF the website falls under "computer & internet", then it will be opened, but if its under some else category then it wudnt open. FOR EXAMPLE:

1. if i open orkut it says "its blocked because of CATEGORY : PERSONAL & DATING"
2. If i open facebook.com it says "blocked, facebook.com/ is categorized as: Personals & Dating"
3. IF i open go4expert.com or something else which is related to computers, it opens them up.

I made some more research and on websiteoutlook.com there is a difference, check these two links out.

http://websiteoutlook.com/www.go4expert.com

http://websiteoutlook.com/www.techmafias.com

Now you might notice, that technibble is the only site on its server, at the same time nextiseast has many sites on it, which probably means (according to me) is the web hosting company is kinda reseller.

I am thinking to open up new blog, but i want it to open in my office, so i am not sure where should i purchase the hosting from to get it categorized under "computers and internet".

If you dont understand it then reply it, i will try to ellaborate more,.

technibble = go4expert, nextiseast = techmafias sorry for the confusion

anywayz,

i have been reading about it for few hours today, and i think it has to do soemthing with DMOZ CATEGORIZATION. I have noticed that some websites open because they are in "computer & internet" category, i check dmoz.org which is an online directory, and found that those websites were listed in the "computers and internet" in DMOZ.

so apperantly, they are using DMOZ.ORG database as their database to block the websites. I have submitted my site under "computers and internet" category, and it will take sometime for them to update it. lets see how it goes.

Probably it would take very long because sites getting added in DMOZ is probably not even once every year due to the lack of editors
