MOSCOW, April 10. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Federal Service for Supervision in the Sphere of Telecom, Information Technologies and Mass Communications (Roskomnadzor) has warned against hosting Internet resources on the network addresses of the CloudFlare service, making it possible to accelerate the work of websites and protect them from outside threats. The press service of the Russian communications watchdog said on Thursday that hosting in this system increased the risk of inclusion of a website in the black lists of resources with banned information.
The CloudFlare project had been created in the United States in 2009 and the network of this service is now located in San Jose, Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington, New Jersey, Dallas, as well as in Amsterdam, Paris, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, Singapore and Tokyo.
“Cases of inclusion of network addresses of the CloudFlare service in the unified register of banned information have become more frequent. It is caused by the active use of this service by the websites that violate Russian legislation,” Roskomnadzor said. It added that such websites hide information on the location of their hosting provider.
“This makes interaction of Roskomnadzor with the real hosting provider more difficult and factually excludes the possibility of timely removal of illegal information for the restoration of access to blocked resources,” the agency explained, adding that CloudFlare representatives refuse from co-operation and do not reply to Roskomnadzor’s official notifications. Due to the absence of response from the service, many conscientious Internet resources, using its services, are blocked by communications operators in Russian.
“To avoid such incidents we advise to place websites on the capacities of the national hosting providers, which in good faith comply with Russian legislation and timely restrict access to the Internet resources that post information the dissemination of which is prohibited in Russia,” Roskomnadzor stressed.
