Whether you’re new to the internet or not, it is recommended that you learn how to access banned websites without using a VPN or any proxy server.
If you use to browse the web often, you must have come across some websites that will block or deny your access to the website.
Your restriction to these websites may be because the website violates rules and regulations from ISPs (Internet Service Providers) or the government.
Moreover, some of these restrictions happen because of one reason or the other.
Some of these reasons can be that the information on the web page is not for your country.

Why You’re Being Blocked From Some Websites.
From experience, I have come across some websites that contain some useful information that I was looking for, but they restricted my access because of my IP address.
So in this case, you have to implement some technical know-how to be able to bypass such restrictions.
So if such has ever happened to you and you don’t want to use VPN or proxy (probably you don’t have one), you’re in the right place.
At this age, almost everything you can search for is on the internet already.
When you encounter such access denial from websites that have the exact information you’re searching for, you can utilize the information we detailed in this guide to sort your way out.
Meanwhile, most Free VPNs that can help you to bypass this access denial in web pages demand payment.
We have documented some secrets that you can implement in such a situation.
Can You Access Blocked Websites without VPN?
There are several methods that one can use to access blocked websites without using VPN.
For instance, using shortened URLs helps to bypass such websites that block some users’ access to them.
We have tested this trick and it worked perfectly.
Although some website administrators are aware of this trick and they are fighting to protect it.
What you need to do here is to copy that web page address that denied you access and use these websites to shorten it.
Here is an example of shortened link – https://tinyurl.com/2aY7baG8
Now copy the shortened URL and paste it into your address bar and it will take you directly to the website that initially restricted your access.
Unblock a Blocked Website With IP Address
Another way that you can use to access blocked websites without a VPN is by using an IP address.
Although this is almost like using shortened URLs they are far different. When you access those websites that restricted your access with the IP address of that web page,
it will assume that you are a genuine visitor and that restriction will be removed.
An example of a website IP address is 65.926.176.19.
Some of you may be wondering how we can find the IP address of the web page that restricted our access.
For Windows users, search for “Command prompt”.
In the input space, type in the URL of that website and hit “Enter”. The IP address of that URL will be displayed.
You can then use it to access the website.
How to Bypass Blocked Sites Without Using Proxies
Have you been searching for the best ways to access websites that blocked your access?
Here are our top 10 ways that you can use to bypass blocked websites without using proxies or VPNs.
1. Use Proxy Websites and Hide Your Identity
I want to bring to your notice that there are lots of websites that allow users to surf the web anonymously.
As an internet user, to find these proxy websites, search for the keyword “proxy websites” in your favorite search engine.
With this keyword, you will find assorted proxy websites that you can use to access those websites that their administrators claimed to be smart by blocking certain users from accessing their website.
Moreover, to use these proxy websites to access web pages that deny your access,
Go to the proxy website and insert the URL of that web page that denied you access.
How this proxy website does allows you to access those restricted websites. When you access those web pages that denied you access through proxy websites.
What happened is that you are not connected to that proxy website and not to the initial website that denied you access.
The proxy website will now fetch the information from the website that you tried to access but they denied you access.
2. Use IP Address Instead of URL
Over time we have noticed that some websites will restrict your access to their web pages
when you use their URL address but if you can get their IP address, that restriction will be uplifted.
In such cases, look for the IP address of those web pages and use it to bypass the restriction that was initially placed on you.
Moreover, some websites that are advanced in security may redirect you to another page when you try to access their web pages using an IP address.
3. Change Network Proxy in Browsers
To change your network proxy directly from your browser, you will need to obtain a working public proxy. You can find one here.
From the website, select one IP address and its associate port.
For Firefox users, follow the below steps:
- Go to “Preference”, then click on “Advanced” Click on “Network”
- You will see “Connection”, then click on “Settings”
- Finally, click on Manual Proxy Configurations
- Now input the IP address and the port gotten from Hidemyass and click “OK”
4. Use Google Translate and Change the Input Language
Using Google translate is another way you can use to access those silly web pages that deny your access to them.
Moreover, Google translate will not load the web pages exactly the way they are meant to be if you use normal browsers.
But if you wish to glance through the articles on the web pages, it is quite a good alternative for you.
Apart from Google translate, you can also use Microsoft translate to achieve the same goal and access those web pages that denied you access.
5. Bypass Censorship via Extensions
In your browser, you can install censorship extensions that will automatically change your device information such as the IP address, etc.
Most of these extensions are free to download and configuring them is quite simple since they are being installed directly to your browser.
Regardless of the browser, you’re using, just search for bypass censorship extensions for that browser and select the one with the features you are looking for.
Some of the browsers you can easily implement these extensions are Opera Mini, Firefox, and a few to mention.
I usually use this extension in my Opera browser to bypass any website that tries to block my access to their content.
6. Recast the URL
The method of recasting URL performs better on web pages that were hosted in VPN servers or dedicated server’s environment.
Also, the website needs to have an unverified SSL certificate that is directly installed to the domain.
To use this trick, you have to follow some rules which we detailed below:
With your browser, locate the URL address bar, type in the website address using this format – https://www.TheWebsiteURL.com
Initially, you know that the website doesn’t have any valid SSL certificate,
when you enter the URL in the format listed in the #2 step above, it will warn you that the website is not secured.
Asking do you wish to proceed anyway or go back to safety? Just click on proceed.
7. Replace your DNS Server.
We have noticed that some Internet Service Providers may try to protect you from dangerous websites
by using their default DNS to block your access to those websites you wished to access.
One of the ways to bypass this is to use Google Public DNS which is a free tool for everyone
8. Use the RSS Feed of the Site
We noticed that when you use an RSS reader, you can as well bypass those web pages that restricted your access to them.
To achieve this trick, you need to add those web pages to the RSS feed reader. Unfortunately, we also noticed that some websites’ security banned this trick.
Moreover, another alternative is to subscribe to the website RSS feed and read the webpage with an RSS reader.
9. Use IP Anonymizer
With an IP address anonymizer, you can be able to access web pages with dynamic IP addresses.
So when your access is being restricted, you can easily use another IP address to bypass such restrictions.
10. Internet Archive
The internet achieves being one of the largest websites that help users to store previous versions of websites, you can use it to access those websites that denied you access.
Moreover, this Internet archive is not a proxy website.
The cool 10 ways that you can use to access banned websites without VPN or proxy are well detailed.
We hope that this solves a major problem you might have been facing on a daily basis.
