A website that is based in the United States may be restricted, blocked, or unavailable from within another country. There are many different reasons why it may be blocked or unavailable. The country you are living in or visiting may not want you to see these websites because of religion, law, or similar.
Another reason is that the website detects your IP address and knows the country you are in and it automatically blocks you. At times, there can be mistakes where the country you are in has blocked a DNS address or website that was not on purpose. Countries around the world have been known to block hundreds of DNS addresses that are based in the USA just to be safe.
Blocked websites can be a social media (Facebook) or news site (CNN) and also streaming media services like YouTube, Hulu, or Netflix. So, assuming there has been an error and you feel you should be able to view the USA website, we have the answer on how to access ANY American website!

3. Type “cmd” into the “run” box then click “ok”.
4. Then type the name of the website in the command prompt which you want to open. Like this = ping website.com (Example for Facebook is = ping facebook.com)
