Easily Unblock these Netflix-style Websites With A VPN

Whether we live in a democratic or nondemocratic country, a lot of us often get this frustrating message: “This content is not available in your country.”

So it’s obvious that we are not all equal when it comes to accessing content from countries like the U.K and the US.

You must have seen this type of image more times than you can count. The quick and easy solution is using a VPN to unblock geo-restricted websites such as Hulu and Netflix.

You just have to change your IP with one located in the country where the site you want to access is not blocked. So if you want to watch Netflix US, just connect to a server in the US; if you want access to BBC iPlayer, connect to a server in the UK and so on.

To unblock websites with CyberGhost, all you have to do is create a CyberGhost account – it takes less than a minute – and then connect to one of our 500 secured servers located all over the world. More info on how to use CyberGhost.

Below, we put together a list of the most popular websites you can unblock with CyberGhost.

India blocks 857 adult websites in an attempt to prevent children from accessing them

blocked

In a move that stems from a totally legitimate concern – children have free access to adult websites – India’s department of telecommunications made a decision that managed not only to enrage its citizens, but also create heated debate regarding civil liberties and personal freedom by banning 857 such sites.

Casting a really wide net in this effort to clean up the Internet and “protect India’s cultural fabric,” as one official stated, the country has also banned popular sites 9gag and CollegeHumor for their not-suitable-for-children content.

Of course, as it often happens in cases like this, the #PornBan quickly became little more than a Twitter hashtag used to make jokes or condemn/criticize the Indian government, because Indians are now using proxy servers or free VPNs to bypass the ban and access the 857 websites again.

With its Free version, CyberGhost is one of the VPNs that India’s citizens are using to reclaim their civil liberties and enjoy an Internet without bans or restrictions.

The following list provides information about which servers are updated on what days at what time. The off time will be between 5 and 10 minutes. Those who don’t want to wait until maintenance is finished are asked to please use a different server.

Thank you for your understanding. We apologize for any inconvenience.

How to Find New Markets with Real-time Date: A Hootsuite Case Study of CyberGhost

At the begining of this month we got featured on Hootsuite’s blog thanks to uberVU, our social media social management platform, and we are really grateful for that.

Hootsuite is the world’s most widely used social management platform in the world and so much more.  More than 10 million users, including 744 of the Fortune 1000 companies, use Hootsuite to manage their social media programs across multiple social networks.

UberVU, a successful Romanian start-up was aquired by Hootsuite in 2014.

1 Year after the Twitter censorship in Turkey

Wow! It’s already been a year since the Gezi‬ protest in ‪#Turkey‬ against online censorship and the Twitter block!
In these protests, a 15yr old boy, ‪‎BerkinElvan‬, was deadly injured.

Back then, we did our best to help people in Turkey. Ten of thousands of people in Turkey were able after that to sent images to the world and boicot the censorship.
It’s sad to see that even after a year, the police detains protesters, as we read in The Hurriyet Daily News.

We’ll keep fighting for the ‪#‎FreeInternet‬!
