Freedome blocking DNS for needed subdomains of scmp.com
This is a repeat of an issue raised by the in-Freedome feedback email link, since it replies by trying to get you to actually engage support -- which it really should itself be for....
Hello – I’ve tracked down a problem to Freedome, or at least your DNS handling.
In the last month or two, I’ve kept getting blank or error blocks in web posts from scmp.com, a globally well known (and quite interesting) Hong Kong newspaper.
The error blocks turn out to be addressing content from widgets.scmp.com (news video) or multimedia.scmp.com (usually multi-slide presentations).
The error indicators when mousing over the blank say something like:
The webpage at https://widgets.scmp.com/video/video_iframe.php?id=9y8q2n&poster=https%3A//cdn3.i-scmp.com/sites/default/files/video/images/2018/10/29/thumbnail_web_text_1.jpgmight be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address
And if I try to load the link or just its base url directly on the browser, I get a DNS fail -- site can’t be located.
When I disable Freedome, the url is resolved, and the media plays properly in the page.
You don’t restrict scmp.com itself, so the fault is in not permitting subdomains – I am not thinking you blacklist specific subdomains?
Thanks for fixing this,
