Description

Cannot reach domains atheologie.ca and atheology.ca using Tor-Firefox.

I get a timeout with the following message (in french)

Le délai d’attente est dépassé

Le serveur à l’adresse www.atheology.ca met trop de temps à répondre.

Le site est peut-être temporairement indisponible ou surchargé. Réessayez plus tard ;
Si vous n’arrivez à naviguer sur aucun site, vérifiez la connexion au réseau de votre ordinateur ;
Si votre ordinateur ou votre réseau est protégé par un pare-feu ou un proxy, assurez-vous que Navigateur Tor est autorisé à accéder au Web.

I wonder if there is any name blocking (atheism, atheology, atheologie...) through the DNS chain or elsewhere???

With Tor I can reach other atheists sites without problem but their URL don't have any explicit reference to atheism (http://atunion.free.fr/index.html, http://www.cilalp.org/, http://www.libresansdieu.org/).

I reach those domains easily through normal Firefox.

You can't connect by IP addr (184.107.100.87) too.

No. They (atheologie.ca) blocks Tor access.

This is normal with or without Tor because a server hosts many Virtual hosts. One IP connects one server hosting many hosts so you must use the URL. Using the IP returns a general page of the server saying you are at a wrong place ...

No. They (atheologie.ca) blocks Tor access.

They ? Which they? Certainly not the target server! I think this is one or more of the many ISP or the European community that run DNS who blocks this URL.

Connecting to 184.107.100.87 by Tor Browser time-outs for me, the server doesn't accept connections initiated by Tor exits.

Ask them why they blocks Tor.

It is the server blocking connections from Tor exits. You can add these domains to org/doc/ListOfServicesBlockingTor.

It may not be a deliberate decision by the webmasters; rather a decision by their cPanel hosting provider. Through reverse DNS we see that atheology.ca is hosted on a panelboxmanager.com domain. And http://panelboxmanager.com/ also blocks Tor access.

$ dig +short atheology.ca
184.107.100.87               
$ dig +short -x 184.107.100.87    
s117.panelboxmanager.com.

You might contact the server admins and ask them if they are aware they are blocking Tor users, and if they can do anything to change it.
