Update: The online web proxy is no longer available, the website unreachable. It appears as if the site has gone the way of many proxy sites in past years.
If you are looking for proxy servers, I suggest you check out Proxy.org, a site maintaining a database of working web proxy servers. When you load the site you see a selection menu on the right. At the time of writing, more than 2900 web proxies were available for selection.
All that needs to be done is to enter the url that you want to visit, select one of the available proxy servers, and click on the go button to be taken there.
The service displays each proxies location in the world, the proxy software used, and whether it supports SSL connections or not.
If a particular website or service is not working properly with one proxy, you may want to try a web proxy that is using a different script to see if that script is compatible with the site you try to use.
The proxies on the site are regularly updated, with dead proxies being removed from the listing, and new proxy servers added to it. Keep in mind though that the top results are sponsored results. The site gets paid to list those at the top, and the proxies listed there are not necessarily the best.
Advertising revenue is falling fast across the Internet, and independently-run sites like Ghacks are hit hardest by it. The advertising model in its current form is coming to an end, and we have to find other ways to continue operating this site.
We are committed to keeping our content free and independent, which means no paywalls, no sponsored posts, no annoying ad formats (video ads) or subscription fees.
