Table of Contents

Are you trying to access a website that has been blocked by your school or workplace? Don’t worry, we have four solutions for you! In this blog post, we will discuss four methods that you can use to unblock websites. Whether you are using a computer or a smartphone, we have a solution for you. Let’s get started!

unblock websites with VPN service

Many schools, universities, and workplaces block access to social media sites, streaming services, and more to limit distractions and save bandwidth. You can overcome these restrictions on your school or office’s Wi-Fi using VPN, as your device will not appear to be part of the restricted network.

A VPN (Virtual Private Network) is a private network that encrypts your data and routes it through a tunnel. It creates a secure connection between your device and the VPN server. This allows you to access websites that are blocked by your school or workplace.

To unblock websites, all you need is a VPN app and a subscription to a VPN service. Once you have both of these, simply connect to the VPN and then browse the internet as usual. Now you can access websites that are blocked.

VPN offers a bunch of other useful features. You can get unlimited bandwidth at high speeds. It can mask your IP to avoid DDoS attacks and bypass throttling from your ISP so you’re guaranteed of the most bandwidth possible.

ExpressVPN is the best solution for this. With servers in 94 countries, ExpressVPN offers blazing-fast speeds so you can unblock the sites when you want. Express VPN is very easy to use.

Sign up an account. Download and install the app. Open the app and log in with your credentials. Select a server to connect to and click ‘Connect’. Once connected, you can enjoy your internet.

if you’re not satisfied with the service, ExpressVPN offers a 30-day money-back guarantee, so you can try them out risk-free.

unblock websites with proxy server

The second method is to use a proxy server. A proxy server is a server that acts as an intermediary between your computer and the internet. When you connect to a website through a proxy server, the request is sent to the proxy server first. The proxy server then forwards the request to the website.

There are many different ways to get a proxy server. One way is to use a proxy server website. These websites allow you to browse the internet through their proxy servers. This can be a convenient way to access websites that are blocked by your school or workplace.

Another way to get a proxy server is to set up your own. This requires some technical knowledge, but it can be a more reliable way to access websites that are blocked by your school or workplace.

unblock websites with DNS server

The third method is to use a DNS server. DNS (Domain Name System) is a system that converts website addresses into IP addresses. When you type a website address into your browser, the DNS server converts the address into an IP address and directs you to the website.

You can use a public DNS server or you can set up your own. Using a public DNS server is usually simpler and does not require any technical knowledge. One popular public DNS server is Google Public DNS. To use Google Public DNS, you need to set the DNS servers for your network connection to ‘’ 8.8.8.8 or 8.8.4.4″

unblock websites with TOR network

The fourth method is to use a TOR network. TOR (The Onion Router) is a network of computers that route your data through multiple layers of encryption. This allows you to access websites that are blocked by your school or workplace.

There you have it!
