Proxy servers are compatible with sites that have audio and video streaming platforms like Youtube. Whether you are at work, in school, university library or any other public location like a cyber café or a coffee shop, from where access of networking sites or related websites is restricted, these proxies let you surf online networking websites like Myspace, Facebook or Hi5. These proxies are reliable and secure and to browse the net, you have to must accept the strict set of terms and conditions like not to access websites that contain illegal content such as ware sites, use for spamming purposes, or distribution Spyware or any other malicious script.
The process to use these servers is very simple. You may be required to sign up to be able to use these proxies. Most of these proxy websites offer services for free although, some of them may ask for a small fee to enroll you with their websites. After signup, the user can type the desired URL (for example: www.myspace.com) on the main page and all connections and traffic to and from the destination URL is redirected via the proxy, making it look as if the traffic is evolving from the main proxy , thus bypassing the domain based URL filtering blocking system.
These proxies allow users to browse through websites like Myspace and browse through profiles, post comments, write blogs etc. Sometimes, you may be required to use the IP address of the proxy rather than the domain name (i.e. http://188.8.131.52/), which you can find by pinging the URL.
When you use a proxy server, your computer establishes connection with the proxy instead of the destination website, and thus the blocking or filtering firewall will be able to trace this connection only. Moreover, this proxy server, which may be transparent or anonymous, will create a connection to the desired URL that you wish to access such as Myspace, and retrieve that website, eliminating any trace of your computer.
The number of free proxies is increasing more and more each day that are setup to earn revenues through advertisements. To search for proxies compatible with websites like Myspace, you can use search engines i.e. Yahoo or Google. There are a number of websites offering these services and you can choose any of them as per your requirement.
