-- The site works just the same way as any other proxy. A user enters a URL into the proxy website. The proxy site then requests the desired webpage form the server, and returns the page to the user. This can evade blocking filters which are aimed at blocking specific URLs. For instance, a filter may be set up to block Facebook.com, but it won't block UnblockFacebook.com. Therefore, Facebook content can be transferred to the end user through the proxy site.
Proxy sites are also used for their added privacy and anonymity. The website, like Facebook in this instance, sees only the IP address of the proxy site, and not that of the end user. While this isn't an issue for most people with Facebook, many users are concerned about privacy online, and do not want untrusted sites to have access to their personal information, like their IP address. Proxies serve as an intermediary step between the user and website, which keeps traffic anonymous both ways.
Good filtering software updates as quickly as possible, and existing proxies will be blocked quickly. For this reason, the folks at Proxiesites.com offer numerous new proxy sites each day. You can find a list of each day's new proxy sites at their website. Users can also subscribe to daily updates in their email inbox through the site, in case the site is blocked by filtering software. Most filtering software won’t filter out email, so you can access the daily email blast and try out a number of new proxies. This almost guarantees that one of the new sites won’t be caught by the filter, and so the user can access any filtered site of their choice.
The new site, UnblockFacebook.com, is open immediately and is already serving a large worldwide user base. While there is no 100% sure way to get around filtering software, proxysites.net is dedicated to helping users circumvent them. Check out the website to learn more and to try it out for yourself, so you can see what so many users are already finding helpful. Filters are everywhere, from business to public libraries, schools to internet cafes.
