Are you being blocked?

Hi All
Is your web site being blocked? 
One of my site's is being blocked by TalkTalk,  Shocked  Angry  test your site's out and see if your site is being blocked!
The site that TalkTalk is blocking is: www.ebook-heaven.co.uk and if you go to it all that is on it at the moment is:

Back Soon
up dating web site
Sorry for any
Inconvenience

It has been like that for over one year.  Huh

Why do you say TalkTalk is blocking it?
I get the same message from my connections in other countries...

Re: Are you being blocked?

Perhaps TalkTalk's filters are mistakenly classing it is a dating web site - which might be blocked by an enabled by default family / children suitable content only filter. Maybe remove the space between the words up and dating?

Meens your ISP is not blocking the site, if you were with an ISP that is blocking ebook-heaven you would not see that message on the site.

Re: Are you being blocked?

I'm using a VPN with various exit points around the world and my PN, mobile and work connection... all of them give the same page.
can't see on that site where it gives that message if it's blocked either.

Try scrolling down the page?
Here's a screenshot of the results for checking a different website, screenshot taken of an extra tall window.
