Proxy websites are nothing but of online proxy servers, Instead of directly connecting to the websites that are blocked at your place, you will first connect to a Proxy server and it will redirect to the blocked website and you can access them easily.
There are many proxy websites available on the internet, I can give you a huge list of them. But these are most widely used online proxies.

How to open blocked websites using Hidemyass,

  First goto HIDEMYASS website.Enter the URL of the blocked website in the input Box and click on the button HIDEMYASS. Instantly it will show the blocked website.
You can use this simple method to access all the static websites and can access them quite easily, IF even HIDEMYASS website is blocked in your collage, school or office just pick any other proxy website from the above list it will work fine.

2. Use Tor Browser to surf anonymously to open blocked sites.

WayBackMachine is a through which we can know about the previous Look of any website from its archives. Enter the URL of the blocked website and you can even access the previous versions of the website that are blocked at your Place.

6. Use IP address instead of domain name

Collages/schools and websites normally block websites using some software’s in which they enter URL’s of the Websites they need to block, so that whenever if you enter the domain name of any website they will simply get blocked. So you can access those websites if you enter the IP address of the websites

To find the IP address of the website just open  your command prompt on your Windows PC by pressing WIN+R > type CMD > hit ENTER. Now in the Command prompt just enter the following code.
Ping (enter the blocked website in the place of

10. Browsing on HTTPS connection – unlock blocked sites

HTTPS is nothing but of the secure connection, where data will be encrypted. This trick will work in many colleges and schools (This trick even worked in my Collage). Instead of using HTTP use HTTPS and try to access the website. For example you need to visit try and try to access the site.

Normally URL shornters are used to shorten the length of the lengthy websites. By using such sites you can bypass the security and access the websites. Try using TINY URL MooURL
