Successfully Finding A Web Proxy In China
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

The Chinese government has been in the process of actively blocking many popular social networking, news and information-related websites since back in 2009. The main reason that China cites for blocking many of these is that they are propaganda mechanisms set up by the West to stop China’s growing economy. However, in reality, what China is actually doing is just keeping Chinese people in the dark by censoring everything that tells them something about the outside world which is why China’s censorship campaign has been called ‘The Great Fire Wall’. China also fails to see how this wall is hurting small businesses that make their living off working online i.e. affiliate marketers, freelancers, etc.

A Web Proxy service in China

When China first started blocking websites back in 2009, there were a number of free web proxies that people used to access these blocked websites. However, China soon began to block these web proxies to the point where today it is nearly impossible to find a web proxy service in China which you can use to access blocked websites. In addition to web proxies, China also blocked many programs, which were connecting to proxy servers based in foreign countries to give people access to blocked sites.

The situation today as it stands after all these websites have been effectively blocked is that you are probably going to have a tough time finding a web proxy in China that works, since many are blocked. However, they are out there, and it just depends on when you start searching, and how you search whether or now and how good of quality the proxy you find will be. For people who do not know of any other alternative this means that they will never be able to access these websites unless China decides to unblock them but there is hope.

The Alternative to Web proxies

Using a web proxy in China may certainly look simple and straight forward but the big drawback associated with them is that they are sometimes slow and many times not secure. If you are going to enter your username and password into a window, you need to make sure that there isn't someone else at the other end trying to get a peek at it, especially if you are running a business. People who are running businesses will need a more secure alternative such as a virtual private network. A VPN is essentially a private network usually based in another country to which you can connect to using your existing internet connection. Once you connect to a VPN all traffic from your computer flows to and from the VPN which essentially means that it allows you to access websites, which have been blocked. Since many VPN, services use state of the art encryption technologies you can be rest assured that everything you do is 100% secure.

However, people who are looking for a free service in China are going to be disappointed since the majority of good VPN services are not free. You'll need to pay a monthly subscription fee in the range of around $10 to $15 a month which is not much if you consider that you can access any website you want via a 100% secure environment.
