Hola: Free VPN to bypass internet restrictions and open blocked websites

Hola Unblocker is a free VPN service that lets you bypass internet restrictions and open blocked websites, without anyone knowing about it. Hola is a simple and easy tool that anyone can use without even knowing the meaning of VPN or Virtual Private Network. What basically Hola does, is that it lets you unblock and access blocked or restricted websites in your country by connecting you to the network of the country in which that website is available.

Hola Unblocker browser extension

Hola

Hola is installed as a browser extension, and it can be used from the browser itself. To get started, you need to press the small Hola button so that you can view the top websites that are blocked in your country. For an example Netflix is blocked in India, but I can intelligently use it with the help of Hola. It displays around 6 websites that are blocked in your country but you can view all of them by clicking the ‘Popular Sites’ link.

How to view a non-popular website from a different country:

  1. Open a Website by entering its URL.
  2. Click the small Hola icon.
  3. Choose a country from which you want to view the website and wait till the processing completes.
  4. To go back to your own country click the same Hola icon and click on ‘Back to your country’ button to revert the changes made.

To view the VPNs you are using, you can click the My Settings option and you will be redirected to page displaying the VPNs you are using for different websites. You can directly open those websites from the same page you’ve been redirected.

Another feature Hola exhibits is the Internet Accelerator which is indeed a useful tool. The accelerator can be easily switched on or off from the Hola extension. Accelerator not only accelerates the internet speed but also reduces the bandwidth usage and hence consumes less leaving behind more bandwidth for browsing the web. The accelerator can even help you reduce internet costs up to some extent.

Hola is an amazing extension to access blocked websites and to accelerate internet speeds as well. It maintains your online privacy by using the simple concept of hiding your IP address. It is much easier and faster than manually using a proxy. You can even get more features by creating a Hola account and then enabling the developer mode.

Overall, it is faster and easier alternative to a proxy and it is more accurate then proxy. Hola offers a great choices between the countries from which you can view a website. If you are a website developer, you can use this tool to see how your website is viewed in different countries.

Bottom Line: Easy and amazing.

    Before using any VPN service it would be advisable to understand the differences in the various VPN protocols such as PPTP, L2TP, IPsec and SSL.This article focuses on using Hola as a VPN for the primary function of being able to access geo-restricted sites such as Netflix. In this respect it may serve the purpose, however most modern browsers implement the geolocation API (as defined by the W3C) which enables browsers to detect the geographic location of the device it’s running on and should be considered. Depending on the use of the VPN, using only “true VPN” protocols will provide the fundamental functions and security.

    Huge Vouch for Softether VPN!!

    I have been using Softether for a couple of years as my preferred VPN. It was originally developed as a university test project in Japan. Since being officially released early this year it has been well supported, stable and has never missed a beat for me.

    I have a Linux VPS (CentOS 6) running my Softether server 24/7 that my Win7 & 8.1 systems connect to flawlessly. The massive advantage Softether has, is that it is capable of multi-protocol configurations. such as L2TP/IPsec.
    Softether is also easy to setup, work with and you can easily use it across multiple devices and platforms. For instance, if you have a home-router running DD-WRT firmware you can connect your router directly to it meaning all devices on your network will be routed through the VPN with ease.
    Another bonus with Softether is that if you’re not so inclined to configure your own server, there is a whole bunch of FREE servers you can bounce between depending on which ones are providing you with the best connections. These servers are privately hosted but safe to connect for your web browsing pleasure.
    In my honest and professional opinion, Softether is a great VPN which stands out from all other available options… paid or non-paid.

    Great article . The DNS option is better than using a VPN regarding content streaming because you can achieve direct connection with the media station ex. Netflix and avoid the “middle-man”. Personally, I am using UnoTelly which is similar to Unblock-us (or other DNS service). Perhaps you should check UnoTelly as well if you haven’t done so.

    Hola is free tool but i am not using free tools because of security and privacy. I still believe on paid vpn services which are secured and reliable i find the tool from vpnranks.

    There is no option for getting access from dubai.

  8. Hola isn’t technically a VPN. Security and privacy is a big issue.

    I have used multiple free vpn services. On top i would say is ivacy lite and hotspot shield.The reason I put ivacy lite on top is because of unlimited bandwidth.

    Nicely explained. You are aboslutely right about the vpn protocols. Correct me if I am wrong but I have heard PPTP is the most secured VPN protocol among all. Other additional feature offered by the VPN-Ivacy I am using is dedicated IP address and NAT Firewall.

  12. Adam Gilchrist

    Hola is an IP sharing facility where you give them your IP and get another IP in return. But it is equally dangerous as proxies are, I use ivacy vpn for premium security.
