How to Unblock a Website with a VPN
(This guide assumes we already have the VPN installed, if you need help installing it, check out our installation guides for the VPN program.)
Follow these instructions if you encounter content blocked for your location while browsing the internet. The procedure may not work 100% of the time. In addition, you may find that you cannot unblock some sites or content.
Unblocking Sites with a VPN
Start by opening the VPN program on your device. In the program, look for a menu of countries you can connect to. If you know which countries the content is blocked, then connect through the VPN server in that country and restore the page. Sometimes, you need to find the page again through a search engine. In case you do not know which countries the content is available, we recommend trying the IP addresses of the VPN server in the US or on different continents one by one. You can also try searching for which country the site or service is hosted in.
If you are abroad and want to browse the internet as you would at home, connect through the VPN tunnel of a domestic server (if the VPN provider offers one).
Contact your VPN provider if you cannot unblock a particular site or service. Some VPN providers also offer step-by-step instructions on their websites on how to unblock specific services or sites.
