There are 37 Internet service providers (ISPs) in Austria and 3.5 million Internet hosts.
In addition, Austria has 6.7 million Internet users, which is 81% of the population, out of which two thirds have mobile subscriptions and one third has fixed broadband subscriptions.
So, what do all these numbers say?
Apparently, when it comes to the Internet and telecommunication, Austria is among the top 30 countries in most categories, which means that its residents enjoy high-quality Internet services.
But how many of them are prevented from accessing websites on a daily basis? Actually, a lot.
This can happen for different reasons, some of which have to do with their ISPs, but there are many other reasons too.
This article explains how to avoid getting blocked by websites, browse the web freely and use it just as you are supposed to ‒ as the World Wide Web.
Austria IP Proxy
When you browse the Internet from your Europe IP address, you may get blocked by certain websites or even the server located in your country.
Some websites simply don’t want you to access them because you don’t reside in their preferred location.
On the other hand, your own country can prevent your access to some websites if it finds them to be suspicious (pirate sites, torrent sites, etc.).
What can you do in such a situation?
First, you need to understand that an online request is like a letter you have written ‒ it has to be sent and received. It has a sender’s address and a recipient’s address. When you send a request, your IP (sender’s address) can be easily recognized by the target website server (recipient).
Therefore, if you are blocked by your target website server or a server in your own country, you need to change the sender’s address, that is, your Austrian IP address.
This is exactly what a proxy server does. It takes over your request and sends it to your target website. Consequently, the website server will recognize the proxy as the start point of the request and you will remain anonymous.
Now, the best part is that you can browse the web from a proxy server which is located anywhere in the world. You can choose a specific country proxy, city proxy, and so on.
But you should also be aware that there are alternatives to private proxies. However, none of them can match a high-quality proxy server.
We will list two main proxy alternatives ‒ a VPN and a Google proxy.
A VPN (virtual private network) is a way to extend a private network over a public network. It allows users to exchange data through this network just as if their devices were directly connected to the private network.
However, when you use a VPN, you can’t be completely sure that you are anonymous. In addition, the navigation may be very slow and the VPN use is limited on mobile devices. Moreover, even if the provider is experienced (which is not always the case), it may have an insufficient number of servers, which will result in a poor Internet connection.
Another alternative to dedicated proxies is to use Google proxies.
There are a few ways to use these proxies such as Google Translate, Google Mobilizer and Google Modules.
In Google Translate, you can set the destination language as the actual language of the page and set the source language as anything but the destination language. This is definitely the most popular Google proxy method.
Next, Google Mobilizer is perfect for reading pages full of text. Even though you can’t access the main mobilizer service on google.com, you are able to access it through any country-specific Google domain.
Finally, Google Modules is the only proxy of this type that will allow you to download files. This domain is mainly used to host gadgets available for the Google homepage.
However, neither of these methods is recommendable. More often than not, both a VPN and a Google proxy can let you down, which means that you will have to repeat your entire browsing session.
Why Proxy Server Is the Best Option
When you get a dedicated Austria IP proxy, it is only yours to use. Consequently, you don’t have to share it with anyone, which significantly affects the quality of your online activities.
First, private proxies are incredibly fast ‒ you will be able to access each website as if you lived in the country where it is located.
Second, they are more reliable, which means that your connection will always be stable, allowing you to do all your activities seamlessly.
Finally, and maybe most importantly, with proxy servers you will be completely safe from malicious activities attempted by hackers.
