How To Change IP
Do you know there are very simple ways on how to change your IP address.
What is an IP address?
An Internet Protocol address (IP address) is a numerical label. Which is a unique string of numbers separated by full stops assigned to each device (e.g., computer, printer). Those are connected to a computer network that uses the Internet Protocol (IP) for communication. An IP address serves two main functions: host or network interface location addressing and identification.
Some Ways to Change IP address
1.Change IP by Restarting the Router
Do you know every time you connect to the Internet your ISP (Internet Service Provider) will assign a different IP to your computer called dynamic IP. If your Internet connection uses a dynamic IP you can easily change it by just restarting your network device(like Router/modem) .
You just need to do is to turn off its switch for a few seconds and turn it on again to get a different IP (Internet Protocol) address assigned.
Restarting the Router/Modem and changing the IP address is very easy. As we know easy things comes with li’l drawbacks. So in our case unlike VPN (Virtual Prvate Network), your newly assigned IP does have the same location or country.
Therefore if you’re trying to bypass a country would not be possible. In another case if your ISP uses Static IP (Internet Protocol) , then no matter how many times you restart your router/modem doesn’t change the IP (Internet Protocol).
2.Using Web Based Proxies
What is a Web Based Proxy?
If you does not know to whom the information is going? Then which is why proxies can be used to protect privacy. In computer networks, a proxy server is a server (a computer system/application) that acts as an intermediary for the requests sent from clients seeking resources from other servers.
If restarting the router doesn’t get you a new IP then Web based proxies are the another method an easy way to change IP address.
Many of these proxies are free to use. So this way you need not to pay for them. But with a minor con as these are free to use they come with slow, user privacy and security is questionable and does not support wide range of IP’s as in VPN’s.
Below are some Web Based Proxies you can give a try:
3.Using a VPN Proxy (Best Way)
Using a VPN proxy is one of the best and easiest method to unblock any website quickly. It is secure, fast and extremely reliable during all times. VPN service provider (also known as a Virtual Private Network) encrypts all of your traffic by replacing your ISP. And routing all traffic through the VPN server. It also includes programs and applications you might be using on your laptop/smart phone. A VPNwill work with all Internet-based services.
How does VPN work?
It’s that simple VPN Proxies will hide your real IP with other IP that is tied to a different physical location. Establishing one of these secure connections. For example say you want to log into your private corporate network remotely it is surprisingly easy. You need to first connect to the public Internet through an ISP. Then you initiates aVPN connection with the company VPN server by using client software. And that’s it!
Here’s our pick of the best free VPN softwares to use blocked websites an also to keep your activity safe and anonymous.
One of them is TunnelBear. Protecting your identity doesn’t get any easier than this.
Another is Hola. If you use public Wi-Fi regularly then Hola is a great free VPN software.
How to Ensure that Your IP is Changed?
You can know your current IP address by just typing what is my ip address on Google. You can see your public IP address in the search results. Once you’ve successfully implemented one of the above mentioned IP (Internet Protocol) changing methods, then you can re-check your IP on Google to make sure that you have got a new one.
