The proxy site allows you to access blocked or restricted sites. Usually, schools, colleges, and even some offices prevent or limit certain websites, for example, “Social Networking” sites like Facebook, Twitter, etc.
There are thousands of proxy sites available.
But the one thing which is common in all the sites is that they also show you loads of advertisements, which is quite Frustrating. And also there is a possibility that the admins form schools and offices might have already blocked some popular proxy sites.

In this tutorial am going to show you how you can create your own proxy server site and unlock all the restricted websites.
We will see two methods. You can try whichever you feel comfortable to go with.
1. Using Glype proxy script (Free Proxy Project)
2. Using Google Apps engine (in-built project)
So let’s start with Method #1 since it is easy and quick.
Using Glype proxy script
This method requires you to have a “Webhosting account” (which is free and quite simple to register) and a “Glype proxy script” file.
Note: The Problem with free hosting is that, as soon as they come to know that you are using Proxy Script, they will Ban you. so the Smart choice is to Get a Paid hosting account for one month, costs just $4/month ( $25 in Discount, for one year)
Step 1. Just download the Glype proxy script Zip file and don’t bother to unzip it.
Step 2. The next step is to Get a Web-hosting account with Subdomain. In this tutorial, I have used Doteasy Free Hosting.
Recommended: Hostgator web hosting (20% off coupon code- Spring)
Note: Do not use ‘proxy’ word in the subdomain while registering for a free web hosting account; you will get banned. Instead, use your name.
Step 3. After your account gets Active, just Login to your “Control Panel” and click on “File manager.” This will show you the directories.
Step 4. Click Open “Public_html” Directory and then click the “Upload” button.
Step 5. Now in the Archives(zip, tar) Section, browse and locate your downloaded glype-1.1.zip file and Click “Green Check Button” (See the Screen Snap)
Step 6. After Uploading visit your website in the new tab and You should now see your own Proxy site.
Step 7. Just type in any web address and see if it works, that’s it.
Using Google Apps engine
This method is quite tricky but doesn’t require a “web hosting account” account. All you need to have is ‘Google account.’
(Windows user’s click on “Windows x86 MSI installer(2.6.4)(sig)”)
Step 3. Now launch the “Google apps engine” that you just installed on your PC.
Step 5. After doing step4 Go to http://appengine.google.com and sign in with your Google account.
Step 6. Click on “Create an application”(verify your account) and give a name and title to your app and save it.
Step 7. Now go back to your “Google apps engine” that you launched in step3 and click on file >> Add existing application. Now in the pop-up box, select the extracted “Python proxy Script” file that you just created in step4 and click “ADD.”
Step 8. After clicking “ADD”, select ‘your_app_id’ and Click on ‘Edit’ icon. In the Application, field, replace “your_app_id” with the name of your app that you saved in step6.
Step 9. After editing, close the Edit window and click on “Deploy” icon. Now enter your Google account and click Ok.
Step 10. Now Go back to your web browser and Enter your App URL, for example, mine is hacker9proxy.appspot.com. You should now see your proxy server.
Note: Keep your proxy site secret. Never tell your proxy URL to your Classmates or Colleagues because if the admin of your organization comes to know about this, he will undoubtedly block or restrict your proxy site.
I hope you are done with your proxy server. If Any doubts or difficulties, your comments are appreciated.
