If your blog is on the Blogger platform and using Custom Domain, then you really need to read this post till the end as all Blogger Blogs Using Custom Domain are currently not Opening. But you need not to worry again, as you’ll get to learn what really happen and the permanent solution to this mysterious development from this post
When Did Blogger Blogs On Custom Domain Stopped Working?
On October 1st, 2017; Jide Ogunsanya first shared Blogger Blogs Using Custom Domain Not Opening on Ogbongeplanet in which he mentioned about how he’s experiencing request timed out whenever he tried to access any blogger blogs. Although am not sure if the issue began on that day but i presume it must have been either the end of the month of September, or October 1st.
Does That Mean All My Readers Won’t Be Able To View My Blog?
No, that’s not quite true. After a while, it was discovered that the issue is only happening to audience in Nigeria (not sure of others outside the country), using PC and globacom service provider, seems Spectranet network provider is involved too. Hence, this mean readers using the glo network , Spectranet and/or any other network provider affected won’t be able to view your blog on PC
What’s The Solution To This Issue?
During the time of the incidence, i tried to contact Blogger Support Forum likewise the Globacom network provider to bring their awareness to this issue and find a lasting solution to it but it all proved negative. Fortunately, the team at Ogbongeplanet came up and device means of a temporary solution. Check it at Blogger Blogs Not Opening On Custom Domain? Temporary Solution
Recently, i think starting from September 30, 2017, Blogger Blogs on Custom Domain Refused To Load On PC and at first i thought it was something minor which is to be resolved within 24hrs until the issue proves persistent and up till now, it has not yet been resolved.
However it seems the issue had something to do with the Network Provider as some said they could access blogger blogs on PC but almost all GLO Subscribers are unable to view sites on their PC
What Causes This Issue?
From my own perspective, i presume GLO must have intentionally block subscribers access to some websites which they believe could hurt their services. Meanwhile in the course of taking this step, they have also stopped people from accessing important websites like "blogger blogs, www.domainking.ng2 [couldn’t access it here], and some other sites.
Any Temporary Solution At The Moment?
Well, recently i stumbled upon a temporary solution to make you access blogger blogs and other sites you couldn’t open before now. This solution is pretty simple and works on Firefox browser. All you need to do is download the anonymox add-ons and activate it.
Bottom Line : I tried to chat with GLO customer care as regards the issue but the result was negative. I would be glad if we join hands to bring this to their awareness. Though the measure might be great for them but at least they should revoke the blocked access to some important sites like; blogger blogs, domainking and sorts
I would really urge them to review the steps they just took so as not to lose more of their data subscribers
Is there any Permanent Solution, Instead of A Temporary One?
Of course, yes! I presume the reason why the issue came up is because of some security purposes but still yet, it is still not totally cool. There are two major permanent solutions to it right now which is either to “switch over to https” or move over from blogger to wp
Update: The issue had now been resolved and is working perfectly with or without https as of 31/10/2017
