    Default Can't access emuparadise's website

    I'm going to be quick. I'm new to this forum but I've been using emuparadise for 6 years now. I haven't used this website for 4/5 months but when i last used it it was working perfectly. Recently I felt like using it again since I wanted to play Shadow Tower. But I can't access the website at all. If I translate the message that I receive in my computer it says "The website you want to access is blocked due to legal action or administrative action" or something close to that. The link that I used is the following: https://www.emuparadise.me/
    Help me out if you can please

    Edit: The funny part is that I can access it on my phone with no problem at all, so I think it might be a browser problem. I tried Edge and Chrome but I have the same result on both browsers

    Using your phones data connection, or your home WiFi? Try both.

    My initial guess from your warning message was that your country was blocking EP for some silly reason, but it could be your internet provider.

    Just as I thought, I tried WiFi and my mobile data and both allowed me to enter emuparadise. But on my computer I can't with both WiFi and my shared mobile data.

    Well, I have no real idea then. MasJ will pop in at some point, check this thread and post some details and he should be more helpful.

    Just use https://direct.emuparadise.me

    There's a DNS block on the site in Portugal.

    Well, that sucks. I guess the guy should try using a VPN or something.

    Isn't the workaround for such a block to simply use Google DNS? I'm pretty sure that's all it takes, but I'm no expert.

    Dunno about Portugal but with some ISP provided routers you can't change a lot of things, including DNS.
    Anyway, even if that isn't the case (your router doesn't have ISP firmware) changing DNS might not get around blocking. I know doing that isn't enough to get past TPB (and some other sites) blocks that exist over here. That's why proxy sites exist.
    Spoiler warning:


    If you send me a friend request on PSN please identify yourself and possibly state a reason why. Blank requests will be ignored.

    Yes, that's all it takes. The block is just on the www domain, that's why the direct subdomain I posted will work.

    Also, the mobile domain works.

    It's possible to change DNS locally on the computer. Router changes are often locked.

    This ^

    Make the change locally on your computer for your network connection manually setting google's dns servers and you should be good.
