Nowadays lots of sites are blocked in schools, colleges, work, cyber cafes and at other places. So I thought of teaching u some methods which you can use to unblock the website.
1. Using Proxy Sites:
You can use proxy sites to unblock the website. The proxy site allows you to visit a website with different IP (Internet protocol) address and help us to view Blocked Website.
2. Changing DNS Server:
You can change Domain Name System (DNS) and use google or open DNS address to unblock website.
Open DNS address are 184.108.40.206 for Prefered DNS Server and for Alternate DNS Server 220.127.116.11.
Google DNS address are 18.104.22.168 for Prefered DNS Server and for Alternate DNS Server 22.214.171.124.

3. Using IP instead of URL:
Sometimes blocked websites are stored as URL for eg www.google.com and using IP of website instead of URL might work.
To find out IP of Website go to command prompt and type ping website name like ping www.google.com and hit enter and the IP of the site will be shown to you in command prompt.
You can use URL shortening websites to shorten URL of website which is blocked to unblock site. Some URL shortening services are:-
bit.ly , goo.gl, moourl, snipurl.
You can use translation services like Google Translate to unblock site. To do you just have to open google translate and put URL of the website and change language and it displays translated result on their own web page.
Virtual Private Network (VPN) softwares allows us more anonymity then proxy websites as they encrypt data transfered by blocked websites. There are lots of free VPN softwares like hotspotsheild available on internet which u can use to unblock sites.
7. IP Hiding Softwares :
Sometimes particular IP is blocked from viewing website. In such cases you can use free IP Hiding Softwares like Ultrasoft to unblock site.
8. Editing Host File :
Sometimes malware and website blocking softwares edit host files and website address to prevent you from visiting that site. In such case you can edit host file and remove that website.

The Onion Router (TOR) software protect privacy and security of its users as it channels data through multiple nodes. It is the most effective way to unblock website but browsing from TOR (The Onion Router) is bit slow.
10. Google Cache:
Google cache is basically a backup of website that Google have archived. To use Google cache go to Google.com and in search box type cache:website name.
for example: cache:http://www.uniquemastermind.com
11. Toolbars, Addons, Extensions :
You can use such toolbar, addons or extensions in your browser which have enable and disable online anonymity feature.
You can get Mozilla Firefox addons at addons.mozilla.org.
You can get Google Chrome Extensions at chromeextensions.org
12. Restart Your Modem:
Restarting modem might work if your IP is blocked by firewall. So when you off your modem and start it again it will assign new IP address if Internet Service Provider have assigned Dynamic IP address and you will be able to view website. Unless that IP is Blocked as well.
13. Google Mobile Search:
To Unblock Website Just add nyud.net to the URL of blocked website. For example, if this blog is blocked you can view it by adding nyud.net to its URL.
( www.uniquemastermind.com.nyud.net )
