Using A Free Web Proxy To Unblock MySpace
Very often if you try to access sites like MySpace at school or work you will find they have been blocked.
This may seem unfair and there are many reasons why sites like MySpace may be blocked. If you are at
school or work the chances are that someone thinks you should be doing work instead of getting on
MySpace or similar sites!
But whatever the reason you are blocked it should be possible to bypass this block by using a free web
based proxy site to access the site in question.
A free web proxy is simply a web site which acts like a go‐between between you and the site you want
to access. If your school or office network is blocking MySpace then you can access a web proxy site and
ask it to visit the MySpace site for you. This effectively bypasses the network block and allows you to get
on MySpace or other banned site.
All web based proxy sites are pretty similar. They all have a box where you enter the address of the
website you want to visit. They also may have checkboxes with various options which you can set for
Usually the network you are on is only aware that you are visiting the web based proxy and not the
banned site. However, the proxy site may also get banned after a day or so. This is why it is important to
keep a list of fresh web proxy sites. When one stops working you simply use a new one which hasn’t
been banned yet.
The network administrator at your work or school may setup blocks based around certain keywords
such as “proxy” or “proxies” and so any web based proxy with this keyword may be automatically be
blocked. If this seems to be the case keep trying different web proxy sites until you find one that works.
A good source of fresh web proxy sites is MyDailyProxy.com which is updated daily with a free proxy list.
Sites like this provide an essential service because it is important to have a list of new and unblocked
proxies to use at school and work.
It is normally a good idea to check sites like this in the morning before you head off to work or school.
Make a note of the latest proxy sites and that way you don’t get stuck without a working proxy site!
