WordPress multisite eh? It's good. Has a ton of plugin for it, my own Comic Easel plugin and ComicPress theme works for it as well.

If you ever need any custom php done for wpms message me.

TL;DR: any alternative way to access scanlation hosting service beside using mangadex(dot)com?

I'm sorry if i sound like a party poopers, but mangadex(dot)com is blocked in my country
hello from IDN
. Is there any alternative way to access the hosting service beside from the mangadex(dot)com? Say alternate address like mangadex(dot)moe or scanlationdex(dot)org? or maybe you could setup proxy to access the hosting service? Also I think my country is more likely to block the website if you use (dot)com, consider that (dot)org still accessible without using any proxy service, be it vpn or dnscrypt. I'm sorry if this post is too long. Thank you.

Edit: wrong ISO country code.
Edit2: change TL;DR wording.

We might have an alternative we could use. We'll get back to you.

Yup. We can offer Indonesian groups a groupname.anidex.moe domain if they want one.

if you mean mangadex(dot)org is perfectly usable for reading the scanlation work. It's the hosting service (mangadex(dot)com), indonesian scanlator cannot used it. In case Indonesian scanlator wanted to use it tho. Also if you noticed that:

[ol]
[li](dot)com is easily detected by governor
fanatic
to be blocked. Example yuri-ism(dot)com, but not yuri-ism(dot)net. also hentai(dot)cafe accessible for at least nine month without proxy, cmiiw, before being blocked last June.[/li]
[li]Also if the site is blocked once, they might not check if the site completely inaccessible by alternate domain, example: old nyaa(dot)eu is inaccessible, but alternate nyaa domain is not blocked at all
the one before nyaa(dot)si
. Of course this is dependent on the blocked site reputation. More popular the blocked site, more effort on finding ways to blocked every single alternate domain that lead to the blocked site.[/li]
[/ol]

@ixlone & @Holo

Thank You for your consideration.

How about good ol' proxies, VPNs, or Tor? Are those blocked too?

Speaking of circumvention tools, I'm quite curious as to what the site admin's stand regarding these tools, whether they allow VPN or Tor access to MangaDex or not.

We're not really doing anything to actively prevent using, say, Tor to access the site, but due to CloudFlare and possibly some other factors people may or may not have issues with accessing the site or especially the reader. As far as I'm personally concerned that's a bug rather than a feature, but on the other hand we have more pressing issues to work through first.

@karappo proxies and VPNs aren't exactly an ideal solution in most cases, especially those that lower your speed significantly, but they are not blocked. IIRC you can't block VPNs and proxies.

The (dot)com domain was blocked because md were publicly hosting hentai in the first few week. Then thosr morons never bothered to unblock it unless someone made complain to govt

Great idea!
Why not adding a link to the menu at the top?

ps: for now how many groups joined the free hosting? (I'm curious)
