I know this is not right place, but honestly I don't know where to ask; There is this one website I decided to reload every 2 seconds for almost half day. (I used auto program to do that) Now this website won't load at all. Why is this? And how can I fix that? I cleared cookies, but it doesn't help.

    Cookie clearing won't do anything if you're IP banned.

    You should really look at what the status code is, and what the request headers say.

    You think they IP banned me? So they would avoid flood from me, or something? @wio

    If you give someone else a link to the site, or use a proxy, you can check whether or not it is your IP or not.

    However, your IP and MAC address are really the only thing they can use to identify you outside of cookies and other stuff your browser stores.

    they're really, really not going to use your MAC address, I don't think; it's probably just some automated firewall rule that monitors how many requests you're sending in a certain time span and automatically blacklist your IP

    however you can still get into the website or any website or anything that blocks your ip address. all you have to do is download a VPN( Virtual Private Network) it blocks your real ip address and makes people see a whole different ip address, which means technically people will think you are in china or whatever country you select to" be in". and if they block that ip address you just reload the vpn or close it and reopen it and your in another country again. so ya try that. @geerky42 @wio

    oleg3321, you are thinking about a proxy, not a VPN. A VPN lets you connect two networks that are remote and have internal traffinc traverse them as if it is local. A proxy does work for you, such as travel the web.

    you can use a VPN to tunnel traffic as a proxy though

    Yes, the router on the other side can proxy for you in a VPN setup. You can also have it simply nat for you, but due to the remote nature it is doing the job of a proxy. Telling someone to look for a VPN to get proxy work done is misleading.

    except that in practice the majority of users using personal VPNs not provided through work or whatever are now using them as little more than a means of tunneling their traffic (yes, NAT)

    but obviously a VPN is not simply a proxy, i'm just saying a large number of people pay others to set up VPNs for them with remote networks for the sole purpose of concealing their identity today. it's overkill imo but it's the reality we face

    To set up a VPN you need access to both sides... most people don't have another network to set up a VPN to.

    lol, they pay providers to set up the other side for them; 12 year olds have VPNs now solely for torrenting and other things

    google "VPN providers" and there's a huge list of companies specifically advertising their VPN services as tunnels; personally I don't see why people can't just buy a cheap shell account and run an ssh tunnel -- SOCKS proxies allow tunneling TCP, UDP which is arguably all that most of these kids are going to need

    Well, they are advertizing the service improperly. They are doing a secured proxy when doing a VPN purely for web access.

    not solely web access, but yes, they're selling VPN setup as a form of personal secure tunnel for your internet traffic

    Which is the definition of a secured proxy...

    yeah, but web access is narrow; internet is broader than the world wide web

    that's nitpicking minor details, though
