How to Unblock Websites Without Using a Proxy

By Herman Cruz

When navigating the Web through a network with filtering software or hardware established, you will find yourself unable to access a variety of websites. Generally, Internet users faced with these restrictions use a proxy site to bypass the blocks on their networks and access restricted websites. However, this is not the only viable way to approach this situation. If you want to unblock websites on your network without using a proxy, you may use a virtual private network (VPN), which works as a gateway.

Step 1

Browse to the VPNGates website to unblock restricted websites on your network without the need for a proxy. The server provided by VPNGates reflects an unrelated IP address to ensure your security while you browse the Web anonymously with uncensored and unrestricted access to all websites. Additional features include unlimited bandwidth, security in unsecured locations like cafes and universities as well as online TV and instant messaging access. VPNGates offers users monthly, quarterly, semiannual and annual account choices. To view the pricing or set up an account, scroll down to the middle of the VPNGates website (see Resources).

Step 2

Operate the RoadWarriorVPN service on your operating system to unblock websites through its virtual private network. This VPN server includes secured, encrypted Internet access as well as unlimited bandwidth. RoadWarriorVPN offers account options for one month, six months or one year. The RoadWarriorVPN accounts include a 24-hour refund policy, so if for any reason you aren't 100 percent satisfied, you may request a refund during cancellation through the "Self Service" tab at the top, left corner of the page (see Resources).

Step 3

Navigate to the StrongVPN website and use its virtual private network as a gateway to unblock any restricted content on your network. Strong VPN provides a neutral IP address that enables anonymous and unrestricted web browsing privileges to all websites. Additional features include fast network connection, no bandwidth charges and live technical quality support 24 hours a day every day of the week. StrongVPN offers monthly or yearly accounts as well as yearly specials (see Resources).
