Proxy websites allows us to bypass our current ISP’s IP and connect to targeted website with a different IP; thus hiding our actual origin from detectable.
90+ Proxy Websites To Access Blocked Websites
Warning: Some Of The Following Sites Maybe Outdated - Please check to make sure They work first
and many more can be found via google search
How to bypass filters and open access to restricted websites ?
Blocking access to undesirable Web sites has been a common government tactic but China, Iran, Saudi Arabia are believed to extend greater censorship over the net than any other country in the world.
Most of the blocked or blacklisted sites in Saudi Arabia are about sex, religion, women, health, politics and pop culture. They even block access to websites that sell bathing suits. In China, webites containing sexually explicit content are blocked plus sites on sensitive topics such as Tibet, Taiwan, and dissident activity.
Other popular sites that are often blocked in offices, school and workplaces are Google News, Typepad, ebay, Blogger blogs, YouTube, Blogger, Facebook, MySpace, Bebo, Photobucket, Yahoo! Messenger, AOL AIM, Flickr, last.fm, etc.
There are however always legitimate reasons to bypass the internet filters and visit the blocked websites. The following methods will help you access blocked websites in school, college, office or at home.
Approach 1: There are websites Anonymizer who fetch the blocked site/ page from their servers and display it to you. As far as the service provider is concerned you are viewing a page from Anonymizer and not the blocked site.
Approach 2: To access the blocked Web site. type the IP number instead of the URL in the address bar. But if the ISP software maps the IP address to the web server (reverse DNS lookup), the website will remain blocked.
Approach 3: Use a URL redirection service like tinyurl.com or snipurl.com. These domain forward services sometimes work as the address in the the url box remain the redirect url and do not change to the banned site.
Related: Use Mobile browsers as proxy to open restricted websites
Approach 5: Enter the URL in Google or Yahoo search and then visit the cached copy of the page. To retrieve the page more quickly from Google's cache, click "Cached Text Only" while the browser is loading the page from cache.
Approach 6: You can access blocked or restricted websites by using Google language tools service as a proxy server. Basically, you have Google translate your page from English to English (or whatever language you like). Assuming that Google isn’t blacklisted in your country or school, you should be able to access any site with this method. Google Proxy
Unblock restricted websites that require login
Approach 7: Anonymous Surfing - Browse the internet via a proxy server. A proxy server (or proxies) is a normal computer that hides the identity of computers on its network from the Internet. Which means that only the address of the proxy server is visible to the world and not of those computers that are using it to browse the Internet. Just visit the proxy server website with your Web browser and enter a URL (website address) in the form provided.
Nice post but I would like to add some China Related info.
As far as I notice (from Shanghai) there a several layers of filtering happening.
Blogs hosted on blogger can be accessed using Anonymyzer for instance but the BBC cannot.
Typepad seems to be available again. One reason could be, but this is guessing this is because they moved to a different data centre and might have changed their IP\\\'s
Approach 1 - As mentioned it works for many sites but not for all. Depends on how strict the Gov has set the filter for certain instances.
Approach 2 - IP numbers haven\\\'t helped me out so far. Most blocking is as far as I have noticed actually based on IP. Whole sets of websites virtually hosted by Yahoo are blocked for example. All on the IP-(range)
Approach 3 - Tinyurl and the like don\\\'t sort any effect. I just tested this.
Approach 4 - Works for Blogspot blogs not for BCC (based on a limited test)
Approach 5 - Google cache doesn\\\'t work in China, Shanghai
Approach 6 - Can\\\'t seem to get the last option \\\"The English to English translation\\\" to work.
The best way forward is actually either pay for a proxy service or set up your own proxy on a server somewhere outside of China to guarantee full access to whatever website you fancy.
By the way, I had to use a proxy to read this post.:)
An additional way to get around the filter regarding blogspot blogs is using rss readers like bloglines.

as another aside, unfortunately DMOZ is also blocked in China so that won\'t help the average surfer.

None of the above ideas work for me. Is there any other was that anyone knows that could work on a school network?

I have been looking for different ways to gain access to myspace in school as it is blocked here. This article has definitely helped me unblock myspace in my school.
Thanks. But will it work in Pakistan, China or Iran where Technorati and Blogspot are banned and blocked by government ?

This is a lesser known trick, but some less sophisticated filtering systems have trouble when the URL hostname/ip is converted to decimal. Do a google search for 'convert IP to decimal'. Google.com turns into http://1113982867.

Ok so i work for the government and they are hard to do beacuse they block everything but i did it ! You have to look up a anonymouse sigh on google or something then go to google translate and typr in that anonymouse address, you then translate to get to the anonymouse sight then use that to get to myspace ect....

I just used the cached google page in order to read this post , then switched to http://feeds.feedburner.com/labnol.BUt the question here is, why can I read only the last few posts on this? What if I wanted to read your post in the first week of July: "Search Engine Index Sizes: Google vs Yahoo vs MSN".
[This I was able to locate using Google search of course but:P in the cached version I cant see the images, hence, this post becomes less informative in that case.Any ideas?]
Now that blogspot is banned, atleast for the moment, what if a web searcher like me wants to view the information posted by you gzillion years ago(or a day or two ago) ?

Perhaps TOR, or a derivative such as TORPark (TOR combined with portable Firefox) or the Vidalia project (TOR made easy) could help? I don't really know if the protocol used by TOR is blockable, but it's worth a shot I would think.
If you're unfamiliar with TOR, it's basically a sort of software router system that encrypts everything sent over it and pipes all communiques through at least three other TOR routers before the request reaches its destination (and thus obscuring the true source of the request). It really was meant for anonymous surfing, but if the protocol's not blockable (I have no idea if it is) then it should serve to get around filters as well. The extra transmission steps (never mind the high load rate on the relatively small TOR network - they need more server volunteers) can really things down to dial-up speeds (and if you're using a modem now, then I presume it's like degrading your 56kbps modem down to something like 9600 baud), but it can be worth it.

TOR (The Onion Router - each midpoint router your requests hit are like peeling away a layer of skin on an onion, get it?) is actually noticably faster nowadays -- I'm actually using it right now. They've gotten more people involved, I guess, because there are definitely times when the slowdown is almost completely unnoticable. Most other times it's pretty reasonable. TORPark on a USB drive is definitely a great thing to carry around with you...

Just use Bypass Proxy to access all the blocked sites like MySpace.com or Facebook or even Orkut in your home, work or even at college.

Noticed something while reading your blog. The google ads on your page showed proxy websites ready to allow access to blocked pages. So it is a good idea to try them out.
I personally do not know if they will work or not as i am on an unblocked PC.

torpark doesn't work if you are using proxy server for accessing net. not working for me. tried various anonymous sites but still orkut is not accessible. any body who can help

my laptop is the only computer that lets me go on myspace because my dad blocked it at every other computer except my laptop because he didnt know i could go on myspace w/ it. My laptop is frozen and the mouse wont move at all, so i was wondering if anyone knew how i can unblock myspace on this computer because i dont get the stuff someone wrote earlier.
& if anyone knows how to unfreeze a laptop, that would be GREAT too.
ive tired turning it on and off and doing ctrl-alt-delete but it doesnt work.
thanks in advance.

I don't suppose anyone knows how to get around the blocking of proxy sites?! You see, the one I was using is now blocked, and a search for alternative proxy sites revealed them as blocked also, from proxy servers to lists of proxy sites..what am I to do?.
Written by Anonymous at 8/3/07 7:17 PM
For unfreezing your laptop...try uplugging it and taking out your battery....remove all power to it. Then wait a few minutes and plug it up and reattach the battery...Then press the power button. It should restart. It worked for mine.

Are there any web services I can use where the IP is based in Canada... that actually work? I've tried a few and they don't work. I'm trying to access axs.muchmusic.com but I can't watch the videos I want to because I don't live in Canada. Is it also possible to rip videos through anonymous sites like these? That is my intention and I REALLY want to be able to do it. SOON.

How do you view the pages using proxies when they have blocked out any address containing the word proxy? (the other options aren't working me)
Written by Varun Nagwekar at 2/8/07 12:20 AM
Sometimes for some sites, using HTTPS instead of HTTP works because only the HTTP link is blocked not the HTTPS.
For example in my office k9 is used to block sites, so some of the sites like mail can be open this way.

Wordpress.com blocked in Turkey
August 18th, 2007
Just months after blocking youTube - drawing international attention, not to mention condemnation from some quarters - the Turkish authorities have blocked all access to Wordpress.com to viewers and bloggers alike. Although the youTube incident was briefly resolved after "offending videos" posted by Greek users "insulting the memory of Atat€ ¦ürk" were removed, it is completely unknown why the global and free blog site has been blocked by the Turkish state. . . .
Moreover, with the ruling Justice and Development Party (AK Party) recent lanslide re-election on July 22 and their raft of pro-European Union accession reforms in recent years, the clampdown on a major international platform for freedom of speech appears totally out of step with their philosophy, not to mention their renewed electoral mandate based on the performance over the last five years.
Anybody now trying to access Wordpress.com from within the borders of the Republic of Turkey are greeted with the message, "Access to this site has been suspended in accordance with decision no: 2007/195 of T.C. Fatih 2.Civil Court of First Instance." Although Internet-savvy bloggers and readers alike can still gain (somewhat cumbersome access) through various software or reconfiguring their proxy servers, the move strikes at the very heart of freedom of speech from a country supposedly on the road to EU membership.
This can only add to the controversy of the infamous Article 301 remaining on the statute books. In recent years numerous intellectuals and writers, such as 2006 Nobel Laureate Orhan Pamuk, assassinated Turkish-Armenian journalist Hrant Dink and novelist Elif Safak have all been tried under the auspices of Article 301 of the Turkish Penal Code for "insulting Turkishness."
