The question I am trying to answer with this short tutorial is the follow:

How can I hide my ip address?

You certainly can hide your IP,Guest Posting there are many advantages for doing that:

-       Online anonymity. You can browse the web in complete anonymity.

-       Enhanced security.  The data is kept secured. In this way the information is away from hackers’ eyes.

-       Change IP address. You can get an IP address from another country,

 A cheap way to do that is by using a proxy.

What is a proxy?

In computer networks, a proxy server is a server (a computer system or an application program) that acts as an intermediary for requests from clients seeking resources from other servers.

I personally wouldn't do anything over a proxy because it has been demonstrated, for a malicious proxy server to record everything sent to the proxy: including unencrypted logins and passwords.

A much safer solution is to use a vpn

VPN or virtual private network, is a way to build a secure channel between two computers on the Internet. VPNs use encryption to protect the traffic between any two points. It's like building a tunnel with special access controls between those cities, towns and villages.

The advantages of using a vpn are many, here are  few:

  • Security for Hotspot Wireless Access Users
  • Home Internet Users - Cable and DSL providers are well known for not filtering their network from exploits!
  • International Internet Users - Governments would like to prevent users from enjoying the Internet, with a USA IP there are no controls!
  • Easy online ordering when you travel - Many order forms on the Internet will automatically block certain countries from even ordering.
  • Bypass ISP Blocking for VOIP Applications like Skype
  • Full anonymity by hiding your real IP.
  • Unlike a proxy, you get secured connection for all programs you are using, (e.g ICQ, Email, FTP, News and anything that uses a Internet Connection)
  • American Based Unique Personal Fixed USA & Euro IP's
  • Anonymous Internet Surfing
  • Bypass geographical blocks from certain websites
  • Protection against your ISP

 Strongvpn has been providing vpn Services for a very long time, and understand what it takes to provide a customer a quality product.

Here is a step-by-step guide on how to connect to a vpn:

1) Sign up here and buy a ssl (open) package.

2) Follow these instructions to setup the vpn on your computer.

That’s it, you are now ready to surf the web anonymously.
