Surfing a blocked website is really a hectic task but it’s not impossible. If you are aware of some important tactics then you could unblock the website in very short span of time.
Most Schools, Colleges, Private universities block some websites for hiding the full access and authority to their users. The full authority to users sometimes leads to major problems which will take place due to some wrong steps taken by the users. For this reason, some colleges and schools block the website for their students. In order to prevent from these problems several types of blocking should be there.
But sometimes you face some sort of issues and problem while accessing some websites either it says this webpage is not available or this website/URL has been blocked but if you still have the curiosity to access it from a place where it is blocked then you must have to go through this post.
As Today’s article is all based on the Unblocking a website on Windows 10. Before telling the process, Let me tell you some levels of blocking. As only a few of us will know that are only three levels of blocking a website and these three levels are Computer Level, Network Level, and Government Level.
There are only three levels of blocking a website which includes:
- Computer Level
- Network Level
- Government Level
Computer Level blocking will allow you to block groups of sites as well as specific addresses. These types of blocking will also allow you to set up different levels of protection for different users, allowing for more control over who sees what in the family.
Network Level type of blocking means that it blocks websites on any device connected to the router, including computers, tablets, game consoles, and mobile phones.
Government Level type of blocking means that some governments, schools, and businesses try to block websites in order to reduce distractions, conserve bandwidth, or censor content.
Now Let’s have a look at How to access a website that is restricted on your workstation by network admins and ISPs (Internet Service Provider).
Several ways to Unblock Websites:-
- Proxy Server
- HTTP and HTTPS
- Internet Options
- Using different DNS
- Virtual Private Network
1. Proxy Servers
Proxy Servers are useful tools that act as an intermediator between your computer and the websites you visit. When you can’t visit a blocked site directly, you can use a proxy server to visit. The proxy displays the blocked website and allows you to interact with it.
How to use the Proxy Server
Step 1 Open the website for the proxy service after that enter the URL of that website you want to unblock.
Step 2 Once you entered the URL, browse all the restricted sites you to open.
NOTE: – Free proxy servers sometimes slow down your browsing.
Some of the Best Proxy Sites are listed below: –
- Skull Proxy – is one of the rapid and ultimate proxy servers online available. You can surf all the web pages you want with all the privacy you needed.
- Hidester – is an anonymous web proxy – acting as your broker or “middleman”. Mainly used to avoid being snooped on by governments, multinationals, and cybercriminals,
- TOR – This is the widely used proxy software that is easily available and aims to conceal its users’ identities and their online activity from surveillance and traffic analysis by separating identification and routing. It is an implementation of onion routing, which encrypts and then randomly bounces communications through a network of relays run by volunteers around the globe.
- Kproxy – will block online to access foreign content like a local and websites come back to home when you are abroad.
- Hide My Ass – makes your service routes your Internet traffic through remote servers, so the websites cannot tell your location that where are you.
2. HTTP & HTTPS
As in order to allow access to blocked websites on your system you have to ADD or REMOVE ‘s’ from Http and Https, The term “Https” represents a secure connection while the “Http” is the unencrypted version of the website URL. For example, typing in https://www.twitter.com may open it for you because only “http://www.twitter.com” was blocked.
3. Internet Options
By using these simple stems with your Internet, you can easily Unblock the websites you want if your Government allows.
Open Internet Explorer.
Step 1: Firstly Click on Tools and select Internet Options from Tools.
Step 2: And then Click on the Security tab.
Step 3: Once you click on the security tab, a box will appear on the screen and then Select Restricted Sites.
Step 4: Click on Sites you want to open on your browser.
Step 5: Click on the web address that you want to unblock and select Remove.
Once you are done with these steps, you are also done with unblocking of websites from your internet browser.
4. Using Different DNS
When some website is banned in an area, it is the ISP blocking traffic from that website. Changing DNS settings from your ISP to something different sometimes help you access the site. For example, you can change your DNS to Yahoo Public DNS. To change DNS, right-click the network icon in the taskbar and select Open Network and Sharing. In the Window that appears, double-click on your network. It will bring up a dialog box and there you can change the DNS under IPV4(INTERNET PROTOCOL VERSION 4).
5. Using VPN
Virtual Private Network is a type of network will establish a secure network tunnel between your PC and VPN server. When you connect your PC to a VPN server, all of your communication travels through that tunnel, so third parties can’t monitor it. In this setup, your online identity is your IP address and it becomes anonymized, and you can easily access blocked websites.
VPNs offer a higher level of security than proxy servers by keeping our data safe.
