How to Access Content Not Available in Your Country?

The Internet opens doors to a world of opportunities, information, amusement, and much more. But it also has its fair share of issues. For example, there are situations in which you wish to watch a specific YouTube video on your Firestick, but the annoying warning “This video is not available in your country” appears when you click on the link.

There are other platforms than YouTube that carry out similar functions. The annoying warning “This content is not available in your location” may have also appeared before you. Even if many other websites may be restricted in your nation, there are ways to access them if your favorite movies or shows are available there.

You’re not the only one who can’t visit a restricted website or stream content. More than 76% of Internet users reside in nations that regulate content online in some way. Furthermore, you’ve undoubtedly experienced blocks from places of employment, education, and other establishments even if you don’t dwell in a censored area.

Ways to Access Content

Here are some effective solutions to fix the issue of restricted content warnings in any location.

i. Use a VPN

Virtual private networks, or VPNs, let you bypass the “content regulations” that prevent you from accessing specific websites. You can use a VPN on mobile, laptop, desktop computers, smart TVs and streaming devices like Firestick. VPNs are commonly used to access movies and TV shows not available in a location.

Whether you want to access websites or stream movies on your TV, a VPN connects you to a server located in a country where the content you want to access is permissible. It makes the streaming provider believe that you are accessing the content from a location where it’s allowed to access.

While there are many free VPNs available, paid options are generally more reliable. Experts frequently recommend NordVPN and ExpressVPN for their superior privacy features and seamless access to geo-restricted content. However, you’ll need to follow a few steps before you start using a VPN to ensure you get the most out of it. If you’re planning to use ExpressVPN on your Fire TV, be sure to check this guide from for a comprehensive, step-by-step installation and usage tutorial.

There are several good reasons why you might use a VPN. If, for example, you are traveling from the US to Italy for work and really don’t want to watch Italian Netflix, you can trick the network into believing that your device is in the United States.

ii. Recast the URL

While using a VPN, sometimes, we come across a website that does not have a certified SSL certificate installed. A tiny piece of code called an SSL certificate is installed on the web server and offers security by enabling an encrypted connection.

Simply replace or with in these cases. You could see a security notice on your screen, but just disregard it and continue to the unblocked website. 

iii. Employ a Proxy Server

Instead of using a VPN, you can use a free proxy to encrypt the IP address of just one website. A proxy reroutes traffic through its own servers, much like a VPN does, but there are several important distinctions.

The main benefit of proxies over VPNs is that they often cover just one website or app and are free. VPNs, on the other hand, encrypt not just your IP address but all web traffic on your device.

Proxies might be a preferable choice for people using devices that belong to the school. If staff members want to get around restrictions at work, they should search for a public web proxy. However, bear in mind that these websites may also be prohibited by your place of employment.

The primary difference is that VPNs encrypt data, but proxies do not. Because of this, if you’re using a less-than-reputable provider, there may be added security issues as your traffic is fully exposed to third parties. When using a proxy, users should exercise caution when entering passwords or transmitting other sensitive data.

Significantly fewer servers are offered by most proxies than by typical VPN providers. Unblocking websites might still be possible, but it definitely won’t be as reliable as using a VPN.

Proxy servers do have a role, despite these disadvantages. Proxies provide a quick and easy option to unblock websites while maintaining anonymity because they are readily available and cost nothing. To gain access to restricted content, you may need to try a number of different servers, therefore proceed with caution when entering sensitive information online.

iv. Tor Browser

Use “The Onion Router,” or Tor, as shorthand. Tor is an open-source, free network that protects users’ anonymity when they are online. Its main function is to conceal your identity, but by rerouting your traffic across its extensive network of relays. Tor can also help unblock websites while browsing the internet.

Although it can sound similar to a VPN or proxy, that isn’t exactly the same. While proxies and VPNs rely on dedicated servers, the Tor network is powered by a vast overlay network that is totally volunteer-run.

When you use Tor, your data and traffic are redirected over a minimum of three volunteer relays until no trace of your identity remains. The Tor network is simple and free to use. By downloading the Tor browser and choosing a connection, you can get on the network.

Although Tor is blocked in some nations, you can get around these restrictions by setting Tor to utilize its own network while downloading. Once you install it on your device, you’re ready to go.

v. Using Google Translate as a Proxy

Google Translate is a handy tool for improving context comprehension. For example, you could wish to use Google Translate to translate a manga or Japanese comic book you’re reading into English or another language of your choice.

We usually make use of Google Translate for business or educational needs. Users think that this technology lacks the strength to access restricted websites. To translate a URL, just copy and paste it, and then select the URL link located in the translated part.

This side method’s lack of data encryption and computer-only functionality are its drawbacks. It is only useful when searching for content, like articles, blogs, or static websites.

vi. Use a Dynamic IP

The dynamic IP address method works only if your IP provider has assigned you a dynamic IP address—one that changes frequently. Whenever a webpage won’t load, we usually try restarting your router to fix the issue.

Restarting the router will, regrettably, not work for users with static IP addresses. Writing down your IP address and comparing it to the one obtained after restarting your router will allow you to determine if you have a static or dynamic address.

Typing “What is my IP address?” in the search bar is an excellent way to find out your current IP address. This approach has the drawback of only being compatible with dynamic IP addresses.

vii. Replace Your DNS Server

Many individuals and businesses use default DNS, for various reasons, specifically to filter and ban websites. There might be adult-oriented content on these websites. The governments of some nations, like the United Kingdom, make it mandatory for ISPs to use a family-friendly website filtering tool.

Court rulings for violating copyright laws can occasionally result in restrictions on downloading websites like Torrent and file sharing sites. Modifying DNS is a pretty simple process. You can choose to unblock a single device or every device on a certain network.

The Google DNS, primary; secondary, is the most widely used free DNS. Regarding IPv6, Secondary 2001:4860:4860::8844, Primary 2001:4860:4860::8888.

viii. Use IP Address Instead of a URL

Certain websites block URLs rather than IP addresses. If so, IP addresses can be used to unblock prohibited websites. IP addresses are a series of numbers unique to each server host, whereas URLs are website addresses like,,, etc.

You must use the following procedure to determine the website’s IP address:

  • In the Start menu, enter “cmd.”
  • Launch the Command Prompt.
  • Put “ping” before the website you wish to have unblocked.

Summing Up

These were some working methods to unblock geometrized content/ Since we support an open and free internet, we hope that using a VPN allows you to bypass firewalls. But be aware that there may be some level of risk involved in unblocking access to geo restricted websites and content. If you’re in a nation like China, exercise caution as not all places allow the use of VPNs, even though they are allowed in the United States.
