How To Access/Bypass Blocked or Restricted Websites

I know Im a few months late after the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) of the Malaysia's Government publicly blocked our favourite websites by sending a letter to our internet providers to block or restrict the 10 file sharing/downloading websites.

When I heard the news, I hardly bothered cause I thought they wouldnt block my all time favourite; Megavideo. But when i saw the newspaper....to my horror, there it was....Megavideo.com listed among the 9 other blocked websites.




Megavideo was probably my greatest life discovery. I almost couldnt live without megavideo- not one day. So thankgod, within a week after the ban was enforced, i had gotten my normal life back- Life with megavideo.

 So here I've gathered a few methods on how to get your internet back to the way it was. As good as thou the ban dint even took place =D
Some of the methods below will too able you to access restricted websites such as social networking sites in your office ;)
Thus, imma try to make it real easy and simple for my readers.


 1. Proxy Servers 
A proxy server is a server (a computer system or an application) that acts as an intermediary for requests from clients seeking resources from other servers. A client connects to the proxy server, requesting some service, such as a file, connection, web page, or other resource, available from a different server. The proxy server evaluates the request according to its filtering rules.
Hence, Its also another way for us to gain access to any website that has been blocked by our company  such as Facebook, Twitter, Blogspot etc) or in Malaysia's case, blocked by your country.

What are the purpose of proxy servers?
- To keep machines behind it anonymous (mainly for security).
-To speed up access to resources (using caching). Web proxies are commonly used to cache web pages from a web server.
-To apply access policy to network services or content, e.g. to block undesired sites.
-To log / audit usage, i.e. to provide company employee Internet usage reporting.
-To bypass security/ parental controls.
-To scan transmitted content for malware before delivery.
-To scan outbound content, e.g., for data leak protection.
-To circumvent regional restrictions.

Here are a list of said to be fast & reliable Proxy Servers list:

I personally have not tried all of them, But do note that some of them will not work for megavideo because the proxy server does not support the megavideo player.
By using the proxy server, your office's IT department will not be able to detect you surfing restricted websites. So no worries that you'll be fired from work :P

 2. Ultrasurf software 
Go > www.ultrareach.com. Click > Download button (top left of the page).

This software is portable; no installation required and you can put it in your USB to use it. With this software, you can bypass firewall, encrypt your activities , mask your IP address and bypass censorship or blocked site.
This free Ultrasurf anti-censorship software is a product of Ultrareach Internet Corporation. Originally created to help internet users in China find security and freedom online, Ultrasurf has now become the world’s most popular pro-privacy, anti-censorship software, with millions of people using it to bypass firewalls and protect their identity online.

Heres a video on Ultrasurf, everything you need to know its there :)


I tried this and it was working perfectly fine, i could watch my tv shows and movies on megavideo and then my connection started to get all effed up. I had problems even connecting to the internet. Thus, i stopped using it. Some people seem to be having no problems with Ultrasurf but it doesnt work for me. If you do not want to risk your internet being f**ked up which then I cant help you cause I couldnt even help myself (I think i had to do a system restore if i remember correctly) cause you cant simply just uninstall it from your computer as it doesnt even need installation.
So its up to you if you are willing to take a risk. I am just giving my readers the Option  :)



 3. I2P 
I2P (originally from pseudomathematical notation I²P, short for Invisible Internet Project, although it is not commonly referred to by this name anymore) is a mixed-license, free and open source project building an anonymous network (or, more accurately, a pseudonymous overlay network). The network is a simple layer that applications can use to anonymously and securely send messages to each other. Possible uses include anonymous surfing, chatting, blogging and file transfers.
 4. Virtual Private networks 
Another way to access a blocked websites is using Virtual Private networks (VPN). It helps user browse internet with a more secure connection and browse the internet as if they were situated in that country. Some services are offered for a monthly fee, others are ad-supported. For free service, you need to install their software. VPN can help you to make sure you get a secure connection using a public wifi too. Here are some example of free VPN.




the best for the last....


5. DNS IP Addresses
Another way to access block website is with a DNS IP address. For the record, it Does Not make your internet browsing fast. Domain Name System (DNS) is a phone book for our Internet Ip addresses. You'll need to key in or change the DNS ip addresses. Google Public DNS is a free, global Domain Name System (DNS) resolution service, that you can use as an alternative to your current DNS provider.

Here are some step by step on how to access/ bypass the blocked websites.

    Switching back to your old DNS settings

    If you had not previously configured any customized DNS servers, to switch back to your old settings, in the window in which you specified the Google IP addresses, select the option to enable obtaining DNS server addresses automatically, and/or delete the Google IP addresses. This will revert your settings to using your ISP's default servers.
    If you need to manually specify any addresses, use the procedures above to specify the old IP addresses.
    If necessary, restart your system.



    Anwering your FAQ ,
    Here are the sites I use to stream Movie & Tvshows;


    I recommend using megavideo to stream your movie/ tvshow as it is much faster compared to the others. Its been a few years since I've downloaded a movie. Why waste your computer space when you can always watch the movie online over and over. Hence, risk of downloading the movie file that has virus attached to it.

    UPDATE: Megavideo.com has been banned and taken down. Thus, best video host would be putlocker/vidxden/vidbux.



    BTW, if your internet is slow. I strongly suggest you getting Unifi if youre an impatient streamer. I havent got mine yet cause my streamyx connection is already pretty fast- i dont need to wait for my movies to take time to buff. Unfortunately, at times- I do.




    This comes to a conclusion, I've Finally done with this blogpost that has been pending for months!!
    *Throws confetti*

     If you dint know yet, im a movie & tvshow addict. I have to have my dose of daily tvshows and the latest movies here and there when its not worth watching in the cinemas.

    I hope you all benefit from this blogpost as I tried making it the simplest as possible for you guys to understand.
    Help spread the word too! Let us not be restrained by the government to control our human rights to serve the net freely as we wish.


    I would also appreciate feedbacks or any questions in the comment section below
