The Iranian government plans to switch its Internet users over to a domestic Internet infrastructure to descend the cyber-crime and vigil on cyber-security. Mehr is the new YouTube for Iran. Mehr was launched on last Sunday which is a user’s-generated video content site. This home-grown site contains flavors of Iran and mainly targets to spread the influence of Islamic and Iranian culture throughout the Persian-speaking world.

Iran’s never been a real fan of internet; well it’s not the problem with the users but, the restrictions loaded on internet sites, which makes it so uninteresting to user.

Iranian government had blocked its population off from many YouTube videos. Recently, it expressed its intent to create a domestic Internet network, cutting off access to many international web-such as Google’s apps like Gmail and search.

Iran aims to maintain Mehr network without any anti-Islamic videos, one such as the anti-Mohammad movie that went viral on YouTube months ago. Surprisingly, the video was also encouraged in the Muslim world, and was eventually censored in Iran, Egypt and a number of other predominantly Muslim countries by Google.

This could be the first step towards the built of Iran-only-web, to shut off online access to the rest of the international web. From last Sunday, Iranians no longer have access to Google search or the Gmail service.

Many Iranians believe the block on sites such as Facebook and YouTube are due to their use in anti-government protests after the disputed re-election of President Mahmoud Ahamdinejad in 2009. Sites expressing their views on government are also routinely blocked.

Also, the foreign telecommunications companies, including China-based Huawei, have helped Iran collect detailed data on its citizens’ telephone and Internet use, to keep strict vigil on the internet Security, Reuters reported

Interestingly, Iranians commonly overcome such kind of government filters by using virtual private network (VPN) software that makes the computer appear as if it is based in the other country. however, this technology is illegal in Iran.

It’s obvious to think the actual reasons behind theses tricks could be a way to control the information Iranians can access online.
