    Nothing shady but you obviously understand my technological interest.

    vBulletin forum says:

    Registration denied, this forum runs an active policy of not allowing spammers. If you are not a spammer, you likely tried using a username already used for spamming, please try entering a different username. Otherwise, please contact us via the "Contact Us" page link if you believe this is in error.

    Any other way to register without going to a Wi-Fi cafe? TOR, UltraSurf and (free) VPN are all blocked.

    Maybe I can get a list of fresh public proxies not blocked yet? Or they use another technology and no chance?

    i think you should try some proxies around, usually this kind of block works on Ip's, it's just a matter of finding one which is not blacklisted.

    Perhaps do you know of a site regularly updated with the newest public proxies (probably not blocked elsewhere)?

    I hate to say it in public, but HideMyAss has a good free list of proxies.

    Thanks.

    Will https://hola.org/ reveal my IP for a simple thing like a site registration?

    I tried to register on some site, set the VPN before but still said I am from my real country. Where is the leak?

    Please explain more.

    Were you using a VPN or a proxy? Or both?

    Did you try to enter a different username? If not, you may be just spinning your wheels and have not tried the obvious as suggested by the website.

    Since I get a different IP address every router reboot via DHCP from my ISP, what is more important with such a website is that after a successful login, if you retain the website's cookie, then the next time you visit the website, the cookie will identity you by your chosen username, and you won't even have to login again unless you logout - so, don't forget your password to that website.

    I always do this in the porn mode of the browser, do not worry.

    I tried some of these now on site X, a new just shown up on the list less than a minute ago, already blocked by the forum site for registration. Hola.org is also blocked. Any other options than going to a public WiFi place? ;)

    Now I just want a Swiss email address. Hide My Ass does not list Swiss proxies. Hola Unblocker does not do the trick. Any chance besides traveling to Switzerland?

    Many VPN services have Swiss exits.

    Back to the original question. vBulleting now seems to block Hola Unblocker and the newest proxies on the HideMyAss site. Any more advanced solution than to go to a public Wi-Fi place?

    Try also Zenmate, Cyberghost Proxy, Stealthy (all for Chrome), anonymoX for Firefox. They are not VPNs but they just hide you IP.
