Unable to Open VPN Websites

I am unable to open VPN Websites at all on Plusnet network. Below are examples

 

www.ipvanish.com, expressvpn.com, nordvpn.com

To me , it looks like its blocked by plusnet on purpose.

 

Have someone else facing the same issue.

Could it be blocked by the search engine you use ?

Re: Unable to Open VPN Websites

ive had to turn everything on the block list off, as unable to access a free bingo site, I tried allow to add 1g.com and it said it was blocked due to pornography? 1g.com is linked with www.freebingo.ca and mybingo.com ! FREE bingo , not pornography. I think if mine works after I reboot everything , then plusnet need to see what they are actually blocking !

Is this regarding a Broadband account mandyman72 or a Mobile Phone one?

Getting the adult content block turned off, got me access to VPN Websites.
