Why Are My Favorite Websites Blocked?

Websites may be blocked for many reasons. It depends who’s blocking them.

Schools and workplaces may block social media or streaming sites. Some regional blocks are imposed to conform with copyright agreements. In some countries, like China or Russia, official government censorship plays a role. Some companies that offer public Wi-Fi may also restrict access to data-heavy websites to save costs.
Let’s dig deeper into these four reasons for blocking websites and learn how to gain access safely.

Access your favorite websites securely with CyberGhost VPN

1. Workplace & School Restrictions

Some businesses block websites on their office networks because the content goes against company policy or because they believe employees use these sites to waste time.

Some educational institutions filter internet access to protect students from what they deem to be harmful content. Violence, pornography, and illegal activities can be included in this category. Schools may also block social media and streaming sites to keep students from getting distracted.

Streaming services like YouTube TV, Hulu, and Disney+ may impose regional blocks on their content. For example, if certain content is only available in the US, you may not be able to view it unless you’re physically there. That can be a bummer if you’re traveling abroad on vacation.

Other platforms, like Netflix and Crunchyroll, display different content libraries in different regions. These restrictions are sometimes the result of licensing agreements. Based on your IP address, the streaming service will determine which library to show you.

2. Geographical Restrictions

3. Government Censorship

Some countries around the world block certain websites to exert political control.

The list of banned websites can vary from legitimate journalism and social media outlets to torrenting sites and pornography. In some cases, even VPN sites get blocked.
Punitive laws almost always back up a government’s internet filtering practices. So if you’re not extra careful when you bypass censorship, you may face serious repercussions.

Public Wi-Fi networks can also prevent access to certain websites. Here, the overarching reason is cost-related. Public Wi-Fi networks have only so much bandwidth, so they might ban data-intensive websites, like streaming and gaming platforms.

Streaming channels are regularly blacklisted, but social media platforms follow them closely. Vlogs, reels, and video content are becoming more widespread. File transfer or torrenting sites are sometimes inaccessible over public Wi-Fi for the same reason.

4. Public Wi-Fi Restrictions

Access Restricted Content with CyberGhost VPN

Some blocks are fairly easy to bypass, and you simply can use a site’s IP address to access it. You can type in your browser and get to Google’s search engine or for Facebook’s homepage.

But such workarounds don’t always work. In addition, you might be doing something you’re not supposed to, without any safety precautions. The consequences can be serious.
Here’s why CyberGhost VPN is the best and safest way to access blocked websites:

Global Server Coverage to Access Any Website

CyberGhost VPN gives you access to a large fleet of servers in 100 countries across all continents except Antarctica. Hide your current location to access restricted content, or change your IP address and region entirely to bypass censorship.

CyberGhost VPN encrypts your connection with the industry-standard AES-256 cipher, so nobody will ever know what you’re doing online. If anyone’s trying to snoop on your activity, all they’ll see is jumble.

Our network of servers supports all the major VPN protocols (IKEv2, WireGuard, and OpenVPN), and we’re constantly expanding it to include more server locations.

Access Websites on Any Device

Want to find out how to access websites on mobile devices, smart TVs, or gaming consoles? We’ve got you covered. CyberGhost VPN is compatible with all major operating systems, including Android and iOS phones and Windows and macOS systems.

You can use your CyberGhost VPN subscription on up to 7 different devices simultaneously. If you need more, configure the VPN on your router and any device connected to your network can access any website you want.

Bandwidth is imperative if you want to access streaming websites using a VPN. Thousands of servers and unlimited device connections are useless if the network doesn’t provide enough bandwidth.
CyberGhost VPN comes with unlimited bandwidth for all Ghosties. And we’re not just saying it. We constantly upgrade the backbones of our network to improve the speed and quality of each connection.

If you experience unusually slow connections, our 24/7 customer support is ready to help figure things out.

Lightning-Fast Speeds

Connection speed matters, even if you’re just trying to bypass restrictions on your local network. A slowdown to your regular connection can be the only downside to using a VPN.

CyberGhost VPN’s servers are optimized to provide lightning-fast speeds, and we even have 10-Gbps servers in our most popular locations. Any server on our network can easily handle data-heavy activity like UHD streaming or online gaming.

You can try CyberGhost for 45 days risk-free. If you’re not satisfied with your speed, you can get a full refund.

In countries that enforce censorship laws, Internet Service Providers (ISPs) play a major role in blocking websites. ISPs are required to ban thousands of IP addresses, not just domain names.
ISPs can also interfere with your connection in other ways. They can throttle (limit) your bandwidth during peak usage hours or when you’re accessing certain types of content. Streaming is a bandwidth-intensive activity, so some providers restrict it.

Access any website you want with CyberGhost VPN without being throttled. Your connection is encrypted, so nobody can track your internet activity even if they tried to.

Alternative Ways to Access Websites & Restricted Content

Are there other ways to access websites and restricted content? Yes, but they have major flaws, and in many cases, using them isn't worth the risk.

Let’s take a look at the options out there.

Get online protection with CyberGhost VPN

Free Proxies

Free proxies are a popular way to gain access to blocked sites, but they don’t protect you against government surveillance, hackers, or snoopers. Unlike VPNs, most proxies don’t encrypt your internet connection.

VPNs encrypt all your internet traffic so nobody can see what you're doing online. CyberGhost VPN protects your connection to give you a privacy boost. In the rare occasion that your VPN connection fails, our automatic Kill Switch cuts off all internet communication so you don’t risk exposing your personal data.

Tor (The Onion Router) is an open-source service designed to help people stay anonymous and avoid online censorship. It has two components: the Tor browser and the Tor network, which includes thousands of volunteer relays.

Tor is a step up from free proxies, but it’s far from being a reliable solution. Everything you do in the browser is encrypted and re-routed through several nodes. Still, Tor has two main problems.
First, it has numerous security vulnerabilities. It’s susceptible to both surveillance agencies and malicious parties. Second, it’s got a really slow network. Tor is a free service, so all you can expect to do is browse the web very slowly. Plus, Tor bounces your data so many times to encrypt it, which just slows you down further.

Like free proxies, Tor doesn’t encrypt your connection beyond your browser. So you can use Tor to access websites, but it’s a major risk.

Smart DNS Services

Smart DNS services route part of your internet traffic, namely DNS (Domain Name Systems) queries, through private servers. It won’t hide your personal information or encrypt your traffic. But a smart DNS will help you access most geo-blocked websites.

Smart DNS services are effective because geo-blocks are usually enforced through the DNS system. They’re faster than proxies and can be used on any internet-capable device. Most VPNs have their own Smart DNS feature.

Use CyberGhost VPN’s Smart DNS service to access streaming like Netflix’s full library on gaming consoles.

Integrity, trustworthiness, and transparency are crucial to how we operate at CyberGhost VPN. But you don’t just have to take our word for it.

We invited Deloitte, an independent auditing firm, to perform an independent audit to inspect our claims. After a comprehensive analysis and examination, Deloitte’s audit concluded our servers don’t store any information used to identify our users. (You can read the full report here.)

A Proven No Logs VPN (Reviewed by Deloitte)


The fastest, most secure way to access blocked websites is to use a good VPN. Workarounds like proxy services, Tor, or Smart DNS services are effective, to a certain extent. But they all have major flaws. None of them fully protect you.
Free VPNs are also popular for accessing any website. But we strongly advise against them. You’re not guaranteed good service quality or personal data protection. Many free VPNs also hijack your bandwidth and use it for their purposes.

Of course. You can use free proxies, VPN services, and other workarounds. You’ll just have to come to terms with the fact that you’ll get caught, odds will.

You can also forget about privacy and security. Your personal information is often sold to various third parties. So one way or the other, you’re paying a price.

Paid VPNs, like CyberGhost VPN, usually come with a money-back guarantee. So you can try them out and ask for a refund if you’re not satisfied.

Yes. With CyberGhost VPN, you can access any website you want, whenever, and on any device. Plus, you’ll protect your personal information and your traffic is fully encrypted.

With CyberGhost VPN, you’ll also be able to save money when you shop online. Anything from hotel rooms to car rentals, flights, streaming services, and more can be cheaper if you know how to use your VPN.

Websites can be blocked for a number of reasons.

Schools and businesses have policies banning websites. Licensing agreements often mean streaming services are unavailable in certain areas. If a website is blocked over a public Wi-Fi network, it’s probably due to bandwidth management.

In other cases, websites get blocked by governments under censorship programs. If you’re looking to safely bypass censorship, CyberGhost VPN has a fleet of highly secure NoSpy servers.

Yes. But it’s not the safest method. Tor has numerous vulnerabilities. In the past, cybercriminals and surveillance agencies took advantage of its weaknesses.

You can use Tor over VPN for an extra layer of protection. So first enable your VPN and then use the Tor network. There’s also VPN over Tor, where you first connect to the Tor network, and then try to route your traffic through the VPN network.

But unless you don’t trust your VPN (which means you should probably switch to a better one), this isn’t necessary. Not to mention that it’s difficult to set up. VPN over Tor isn’t possible with many VPN services.
