Bypass The Great Firewall And Access Blocked Sites With A Web Proxy In China
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Many disappointed Facebook fans are not aware that you can use a web proxy in China. There are even many proxy users who don't know what a web proxy is.  The Chinese government isn't getting any more open or understanding, so if you're going to be stuck in China for a while, you'd better figure this stuff out. Let's start from the beginning.

What's a proxy?

When talking about web proxies in China, you should first understand how a proxy works. Ok, it's not 100% necessary, but it is kind of interesting.  Proxies store IP data of sites when they access them.  When you connect to a proxy server to browse the Internet, you're actually browsing information stored on a proxy, not the actual site. The site, for whatever reason, has been blocked (or is blocking you), so you can't view it. However, it's most likely that the proxy's IP isn't blocked, so you can access it with no problem.  If it happens (as it often does) that the proxy doesn't have up to date info, or any at all, it will automatically take your IP data out of the site request, visit the site for you, and then return with what it found. The is the bones of how a proxy works to bypass firewalls and access blocked sites.

What's a web proxy?

A web proxy is of course, based on the web. This is in contrast to a software based proxy which would need to be installed.  Web proxies require no installation, and are very often "open" proxies, which means anyone can access them.  To make use of a web proxy, all you need to do is find a website that offers a proxy, type your blocked URL into the box provided, and you'll be able to browse the Internet using the web proxy's IP address.

What about web proxies in China?

Despite many issues, web proxies in China still work. The problem is that a web proxy in China doesn't provide a lot of security, so they're easily found, easily blocked, and it's difficult for them to do battle with an every expanding and strengthening firewall in China.  However, this could be attributed to the fact that many are run by individuals and spammers who don't care much about the freedom of speech and information of Internet users in China. There still are professional services available, you've just got to look.

Why get a web proxy and not a VPN?

Many users prefer web proxies in China. This is because they are more versatile than VPNs in that you can use one license on all of your devices. More and more these days, it's not just a desktop at home that you use to access the Internet. You've got a desktop, a laptop, a smart phone, a work computer, and your friends computer's.  If this is you, you don't want to install and uninstall a VPN on all of those devices each time you need to check your FB account or Gmail isn't working properly.  Worse, you don't want to pay for an individual license for each one.  A web proxy allows you to access blocked sites in China on all of your devices.
