Blocking access from china using htaccess
How do I test if it works?

I'm trying to block all traffic coming to my site from China and I'm using htaccess. The codes I used in the htaccess file are shown below.

1.) How do I test if they actually work? Is there a proxy located in China that I can use to test?
2.) Will this code just block only web access or email as well?

You could try adding your own IP range and then see if your rules are working as intended. Of course, you'll also need to ensure you have the correct IP ranges. If you wish to try using a proxy, there are several websites that will list proxies and their respective country.

AFAIK, it will only ban HTTP requests.

1.) will this block all the sub domains on the domain as well? Or do I need to place these codes on the htaccess of each subdomain?

2.) Where can I find china proxies? Searching for 'proxies in china' returns 'proxies outside china' because this service is much more needed.

subdomains can reside on a totally different IP from a domain, so no. They do tend to be on the same IP or same IP range though.

searching for proxies in general should yield better results, most proxy lists show which country the proxy resides in.

If you are talking about your subdomains ( not the visitors ) then probably yes, but depends how apache server is set up, try apache server forum.

Your log files should show if block if effective.
