How to access / unblock blocked websites (Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, IMDB, Blogger, Blogspot) in China

February 26th, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

During my stay in China, one of the most frustated thing beside the lack of vegetarian food is the blocked internet website here. Some general websites such as Facebook, Twitter, Blogger, Youtube could not be accessed at all here. This of course makes me a little frustrated. Moreover, some blocked websites are one source of my income, examples: Bloggers & Youtube. That’s why on early days here, i use my time to find a way to get through Chinese Government’s firewall (Great Wall). During 4 days of searching, I found that there are several ways to access blocked websites in China.

There are several types of solutions for this problem. You just need to pick one from below.

1. Using Paid Web Based Proxy sites

In networks, a proxy server is a server that acts as an intermediary for requests from clients seeking resources from other servers. One of the best proxy sites i tried is Securitales (http://www.securitales.com)
It requires no installation and works great from China. You can try it using trial mode about 10 minutes. To use this service you must pay some amount of fee :

Price :
2 months -> $16
6 months -> $39
12 months -> $72

2. Using VPN

By using a VPN, you would like to access the internet from another IP (usually from another country). Suppose you use the Internet in China, then you would like to access it from outside China. In this way, then you will not get blocked by certain country’s firewall system (ex : Chinese Great Wall). One pretty good vpn service I found was http://www.vpnatchina.com. Unfortunately, to use this you must pay monthly fee. For you who don’t want to pay at all, there 2 software i recommended. They are Freegate and Hotspot Shield. Both are softwares for Windows (unfortunately there are no Mac version for both software). Currently i am using Freegate to access Facebook, Blogger, etc. Using VPN is a good solution to the surf at the web. You can search them on the internet. Some software also support you to request open port that had been blocked by your internet service provider ( ISP ), and its stable to all your connection to surf at the world.

3. Using Free Proxy Website

This is the common solution for this problem. There are tons of free proxies websites out there, but most of them doesn’t last for long time. I don’t recommend you to use free proxy, because most of these website are run by hackers and governments. They are easily to block and it’s very unstable.

Here some free proxy website i tried and worked :
– http://www.dracoola.org
– http://proxicate.net
– http://kproxy.com/index.jsp
– http://alienproxy.com
– http://proxify.com
– etc

Or you can find another website in here :

    I use this to get on Facebook/YouTube etc.:

    I`m in China for 2 years now and I found proxies to be too slow for everyday use. VPN tends to do much better.

    I always prefer Free virtual private network as financial transactions, passwords, downloads, and instant messages are always safe with Hotspot Shield. It maintains the security and privacy of your web sessions at all times.

    Here’s what I would recommend: my nephew downloaded this “highspeedVPN” on my laptop, and it’s been working wonders for me! We use Wifi at work and they restrict access to many sites that I actually need to use for work purposes! I conduct marketing research so I need to get access to sites such as Facebook and Twitter amongst other… Anyway I’d suggest go to http://www.highspeedvpn.com/ and take a look it’s probably what you’re looking for.

    Hotspot shield seems to be working on and off here in China. So i switched to HighspeedVPN and it works fine. The speed is also good.
