4 Ways To Access Websites That Block Your IP

If there are some websites you have been finding difficult to access on your computer, then, relax as I share with you 4 ways you can access such websites. Such websites block some IP addresses for reasons best known to the website administrator. Hence, if your IP address is among the blocked IP addresses, you will not be able to access such website.

More so, in some offices, schools and countries, some sites specially social networking websites like MySpace and facebook are often blocked.

You can now access such websites and even prevent them from keeping record of your identity if you use any of the methods below:

1. Softwares that Hide IP

There are softwares out there whose basic function is to hide your IP and unblock websites. Most are very easy to use. 


Some of the free IP Hiding tools include Your-FreedomUltraSurfNotMyIPIPHider , IWP.

2. Firefox add-ons

There are some cases whereby you will not be able to install softwares to a PC and you need to access some blocked websites. This is common in some cyber-cafes where installation of softwares to the computers can only be done by the admin. In such cases, some firefox add-ons that hide IP become good alternatives.

FoxyProxy is a small add-on for Firefox that allows users to access blocked sites.  SwitchProxy or AutoProxy. are similar add-ons that can be used to access such blocked websites too. 

3. Web proxies

There are many free online services that allow you to access blocked websites through a proxy server. You can easily safeguard your identity online by using an anonymizer or an anonymous proxy. There are literally thousands of anonymous proxy servers out there. Like;, You can check out the Master List of all Web Proxy Servers by

4. VPN connections
A VPN (Virtual Private Network) is like a tunnel over the public network. VPNs use advanced encryption and allow you to  access all applications (mail, chat, browser etc) in complete anonymity and not only the web sites, hence more secure than web proxies. The most known free VPN are, UltraVPN and ProXPN.
