The move hurts thousands of Chinese VPN vendors a lot, they may be arrested as a consequence of selling VPN services. At the same time, the crackdown makes VPN providers outside of China more difficult to expand the market. Many VPN providers websites have been blocked, although they have used different domains for redirecting to the shopping web page.

Sadly, the internet enables people all over the world to connect with each other quickly and easily, but Beijing is forcibly isolating China as an island of information on earth.
