A Web Proxy is a website service that allows you to access 3rd party websites through the proxy website. The Web Proxy fetches the page you request and forwards them back to you. Your browser only ever connects to the Web Proxy Servers and never directly connects to the target server. A byproduct of this action is anonymity to the target server. This also allows you to bypass certain blocks as you connect only to the Web Proxy and never to the blocked or restricted content.
The Proxy WebServer is the proxy server your browser connects to while making its request. By default we will attempt to use our closest Web Server to your real location. The Proxy will use one of the Web Servers IP address' for all outgoing connections while serving your requests.
IP Location Servers are additional servers you are able to tunnel your proxy request through. This allows you to connect to a Proxy Server in one location while using the outgoing IP address of a Proxy Server in a different location.
Proxy Options are the settings you can specifically change to alter the way FreeVideoProxy.com serves your requests. These options can be set by pressing the 'Options' button at the top of all proxied pages.
The Web Server drop down options allows you to choose the location of the Web Server you connect through while browsing. By default we attempt to choose the location closest to you but also allow you to set this option manually.
The IP Location drop down allowed you to choose an additional location to tunnel your request through. By default we just use the IP address of the web server you are connecting through but with this option you are able to use a Web Server in 1 location while tunning your request through a Proxy Server in a different location. This may increase loading times as all requests will be tunneled through an additional server.
When Remove Page Titles is enabled the proxy will strip all page titles from every page. Page titles is the text that appears in your browsers tab or browsers history. Having this option enabled increases privacy by making sure your page title history does not give away what pages you were viewing through the proxy.
Having the Encrypt Page option enabled simple means that the proxy will obscure the source of the pages you visit making it harder for some web filters to block content by viewing the source of the pages you are viewing. This is the content you see if you right click and select view source in your web browser.
Permanent URLs refer to the actual proxy URL you see in your web browser address bar. With Permanent URLs enabled the proxy will use /direct/ URLs. These URLs can be sent to others to link directly into proxied pages. If this option is disabled the proxy will use /seucre/ URLs which can not be sent to others and will only work for your session.
This option just allows the proxy to store cookies from the websites you view in your browser. This option is enabled by default as some websites will not work correctly if you do not allow cookies to be stored.
The following Proxy settings will increase your anonymity while browsing through the proxy. Disable: Permanent URLs and Enable: Remove Page Titles, Remove Scripts, Encrypt Page. This will ensure that even if someone has access to your browsers history they will be unable to view the pages you were viewing.
Yes. All of your connections to the FreeVideoProxy.com servers are done over a 256 bit encrypted SSL connection. Even if the site you are viewing through the proxy does not support SSL we will serve this content back to you over a SSL encrypted connection.
