Stop censorship!

No censorship. Surfing the Internet without restrictions, it seems almost impossible nowadays. Internet censorship is the control or suppression of what can be accessed, published, or viewed on the Internet and it has soared to new heights over the last 5 years. As many as 36 countries have increased censorship since 2010. The most notorious among those countries is China, with its Golden Shield Project (also known as The Great Firewall of China.) Over 20 governments ban websites and block services like Google, Facebook, Wikipedia, Myspace, YouTube and Twitter. The extent of Internet censorship varies on a country-to-country basis. Over 700 million internet users are living in those 20 countries. People use a variety of tools and techniques to bypass online censorship. The top tool used to beat Internet restrictions is a web proxy server. For a top list of web proxies go to http://bestproxysites.net. The websites users visit through a web proxy see an IP address (from another country) belonging to the proxy server rather than their real IP address. This IP address manipulation will help them bypass censorship and browse the Internet anonymously. Web proxies allow users to surf the Internet anonymously from within their browser window. It is a very simple solution to a complex problem!

Not all cases of censorship involve the government though. An ISP, employer or school administrator may use technology to block web services, mostly to cut down on security breaches, as well. To stop censorship, nocensorship.info enables you to bypass all restrictions, anytime and anywhere. You don't have to download or install proxy software to get uncensored access to the web.

There are several motives for online censorship. Some governments ban websites related to religion and minority groups, others censor gambling and pornographic sites. Countries where the Internet is most controlled are:

1. North Korea (all websites are under government control)
2. Saudi Arabia (over 400.000 sites have been banned)
3. China (with its Golden Shield Project, China has the most rigid censorship program in the world)
4. Burma (authorities filter e-mails and block access to certain websites)
5. Cuba (internet access available only at government controlled access points)
6. Iran (bloggers that express opposition are harassed and jailed)
7. Tunisia (the government monitors e-mails and filters all content uploaded)
8. Vietnam (the Communist Party blocks websites critical of the government, as well as those that advocate for democracy, human rights and religious freedom)
9. Turkmenistan (the government, the only Internet service provider, blocks access to many websites and monitors all e-mail accounts)
