How to Bypass Website Blocking From a Banned Country

When there is a problem accessing a blocked website from a given territory in the world, there are a number of things that you can do about it.

The internet service provider (ISP) that allows you to access websites will have blocked access to certain URLs, or internet web page addresses, due to the authorities' decision to deny the service offered.

With a virtual private network, or VPN, it is possible to bypass the ISP's blocking software because the data is transferred directly from your computer to another one which accesses the internet from elsewhere.

However, users will have to volunteer a postal address for this approach to work. Without this facility, a proxy server can be used. With this method, your internet activity runs through a third party site which does not have a banned URL but which allows you to view the destination site through it.

Both approaches may be illegal, depending on what you do and where in the world you happen to be, so this should only be undertaken at the user's own risk.
