Hack into blocked websites

How to Unblock Websites at
School, Work, Home or Anywhere
Internet censorship has grown drastically over
the past few years with countries like China,
Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Iran taking the lead over
others in blocking sources of free unbiased
information. China is known to have even forced
Google to filter its search results. Government
censorship is not the only reason why websites
are blocked. Some network administrators also
prevent users from accessing certain websites
which they believe are of no use in places such
as schools and sometimes, even offices. In such
times, you may need to access a website that is
blocked. This article explains how.
Which websites are most commonly Blocked?


The most
commonly blocked
websites include
websites about pop
culture, health,
medicine, women,
religion and
politics. Social websites are also often blocked
and include the likes of Facebook, Twitter,
YouTube, Pinterest, Instagram, Reddit, Digg,
Hulu, LinkedIn, Tumblr, Blogger (Blogspot),
MySpace, Bebo, Flickr, Yahoo! Messenger,
Typepad, Technorati, StumbleUpon and
Delicious. Sites like Google News, Wikipedia,
Wikileaks and eBay are also blocked at certain
places.

There are many genuine reasons for which you
might want to visit blocked websites at your
school or office. Given below are the ways you
can use to regain access to the blocked website
you wish to visit.
1. Cache method : Most search engines maintain
a cache of web pages indexed by them. You
can search for a website on Google , Yahoo! or
Bing and click on the cached link that is given
next to the result. To load the web pages more
quickly, you can visit the text-only version.
Since the website is provided from the search
engine’s servers, it can be used to overcome IP
address and URL based filtering.

2. Using Google Mobile Search: For users
browsing on a slow mobile internet connection,
Google Mobile search removes all CSS styling
and JavaScript to present a stripped down
version of the web page from Google’s own
server. As the content is provided from
Google’s servers, the blocking software feels
that you are visiting Google, whereas in reality,
you are viewing the blocked website. Go to
Google Mobile Search . To visit the website of
your choice, just replace tweakandtrick.com in
the URL with the address of the website.
Despite the name, Google Mobile Search can be
accessed from your PC as well.
3. Access blocked websites with Google
Translate . You can use translation service from
Google to visit blocked websites. To do so,
enter a language different from the website’s
language in the ‘From’ field and English in the
“To” field. You can also use this method to
bypass software that block websites on the
basis of specific keyword mentions. Just
translate the URL you wish to visit in a different
language to overcome the keyword block.

4. Create a 2 layered unblocker: Go to Google
Translate, open any proxy website inside it and
then use that proxy website to access your
blocked website. In this way, you can achieve
two layered website unblocking.

5. Use RSS Readers for accessing restricted
blogs: All blogs syndicate their content via RSS
feeds which you can subscribe to in web based
RSS readers like Feedly to access blocked
content. For example, the RSS feed of this blog
is located at http://feeds.tweakandtrick.com/
tweakandtrick .

6. To access a blocked website, you can enter
its IP address instead of the URL in your
browser’s address bar . This can bypass most
basic forms of website blocks. Although if the
blocking software maps the IP address to the
website domain, the website will still remain
blocked. You can find the IP address of any
website by pinging the website domain name in
the Command Prompt in Windows (Terminal in
other operating systems) and noting its IP
address. Execute ping http://www.tweakandtrick.com
in the Command Prompt to ping
http://www.tweakandtrick.com.

7. Use IP Address to Decimal conversion : If you
cannot access your blocked website by entering
its IP address, you can enter the decimal
equivalent of the URL’s IP address to get
access to it. Search Google for IP to Decimal +
IP Address of the banned website and Google
will convert it into decimal. Enter that into your
browser’s address bar and see if the blocked
website opens.

8. Nyud.net : To unblock blocked websites, just
add nyud.net to their URL. For example, if this
blog ( http://www.tweakandtrick.com ) is blocked, you
can visit it by going to
http://www.tweakandtrick.com.nyud.net .

9. Opera Mini Simulator: Opera Mini, the mobile
browser for users with a slow internet
connection, can be installed on your computer.
You can use this PC version to visit blocked
websites as Opera Mini accesses content from
Opera’s servers instead of accessing it from the
servers on which the website is hosted. Most
websites will load through this method, although
the quality of the results obtained may not be
that good for JavaScript heavy websites.

10. TOR: TOR or The Onion Router is a free
software that protects the privacy and security
of its users by channeling data through multiple
nodes so as to prevent the original data from
being unscrambled. Although browsing through
TOR is a bit slow, it is one of the most effective
ways of bypassing restricted websites and
protecting your privacy.

11. Proxy websites: There are many proxy
websites (anonymizers) which open blocked
websites on their servers and present the data
to you. This hides the address of the website
you are trying to visit from your internet service
provider. Few popular free ones include
Anonymouse and KProxy.

12. VPN software: VPN or Virtual Private
Network software can be described as a tunnel
under the public network that offers more
anonymity than proxy websites as it also
encrypts the data transferred by the blocked
website thus, offering complete anonymity.
Although most VPN software are available as
paid software only, HotSpotShield is a popular
free alternative.

13. IP hiding software: Sometimes, websitesblock users on a particular IP address fromvisiting themselves. In such cases, free IPhiding software like UltraSurf can be used to
visit them. While free software offer very less
features as compared to paid ones, they are still
effective for overcoming most common blocks.

14. Changing DNS servers : A common way of
blocking websites is preventing DNS servers
from giving the locations of the blocked
website’s servers. In such a scenario, changing
your DNS servers to those of OpenDNS or
Google DNS will be your best option to get over
the block. As an additional advantage, this can
also increase your internet speed .

15. Edit your host files: Some malware and
blocking software edit your host files and add a
website’s address in them to prevent you from
visiting it. In such a scenario, you can edit your
host file with Notepad by visiting “C:\WINDOWS
\system32\drivers\etc” if C is your system
drive. In Windows 10, Windows 8(.1), Windows 7,
a warning from UAC might be displayed.
