In this tutorial you will learn how to access blocked websites.
Depending on your geographical location, this can prove itself easy, a bit more complicated or downright impossible.
Let’s start hard: if you happen to be in China now and you want to access restricted websites, may God help you. We can’t. There is a number of tricks that we can show you, but the Government -the one which owns the communication infrastructure you’re planning to use- knows them already and waits for you to pull them so they can take catch you doing that.
Our advice: when in China, do as Chinese do. Don’t access restricted websites of the Internet. Play ping-pong instead
The impossible part of website access is being now out of the game, the rest is rather simple
Step 1. The first simple way to access blocked websites is by using proxies. Proxies are web addresses that act as intermediaries between you and your target destination, so in case your system administrator has blocked you from accessing those interesting websites you might still have a chance. If this is your situation, you might want to use a proxy.
To use a proxy, open up your web browser, type: megaproxylist.com, and check the first six pages of listing
Access any of the websites displayed in the list. They’re usually simple one-page websites with a text box for your address.
Type your address of choice in this text box, and press Enter. You will be redirected to the page you want to access.
Step 2. If the security on your browsing system is stricter, you might want to access your website through a Virtual Private Network, or a VPN. VPNs are direct connections to another system that has no restrictions of access; by ‘tunneling’ your communication through that system, you can get access to sites otherwise restricted.
Setting up a VPN is moderately simple, but it requires the assistance of someone on the other side of your connection.
Assuming that you are on Windows, here is what you have to do on your side:
Right-click on the lower right corner icon of your network. Select ‘Open Network and Sharing Center’
Click ‘Set up a new connection or network’.
In the next dialog window, select Connect to a Workplace. Click Next.
Select ‘Use my Internet connection (VPN)’.
Type in the name of your VPN server in the text box displayed. We’ll use uk.justfreevpn.com, but you can have the address of any free Vpn provider here.
Give a name to your VPN connection. Click Next.
You are asked for a username and a password – these are usually given out along with the website. This is why we have said you need someone on the other side
Our provider gave us this. Click Connect.
Wait for your system to figure out the connection.
Your VPN connection is now established. Now go ahead and try that interesting website
Result: Whichever the method you chose to adopt, you have successfully managed to access your blocked website.
