One of the issues that many people face when they are online is being blocked from certain websites. This makes it effectively impossible to access that particular website, of course, unless you have some extra knowledge on the issue.
Since we are talking about extra knowledge, it’s important to know;
why those blocks are put in place
how the blocking is done
how to circumvent such and open up your internet freedom.
Why Am I Being Blocked?
There are numerous reasons for a website being blocked.
Blocked by Local Network
For those who are at school and various other institutions, IT administrators often block those sites which are considered fun or addictive. At a business, your boss often blocks websites that may be time-consuming, in order to increase productivity.
In some cases, a website can be blocked simply due to your geographical location. Various websites only limit their resources to people that are in specific regions/ countries.
Streaming services are the most notorious in this category, and they do so to comply with the requirements of content producers. BBC iPlayer, though free, can only be accessed by people in the UK unless you use a compatible VPN service like Hidester. 9Now, on the other hand, can only be accessed by those in Australia.
