I moved from England quite long time ago, but I am in need of a UK IP address to see some television shows, and also for some other stuff. Can you tell me how I can get hold of a UK IP address?
Thank you for the question! There are quite some ways in which you can get hold of a UK IP address. There are proxy servers around which can help you in the matter, and with some small adjustments in your web browser this can be done. This solution is though unstable and not at all that good. A very good solution is a service provided from HideMyAss. This is a serious company with lots of people already subscribing to their services and their product looks as follows.
First you visit their website and you subscribe to their service for one month (for example). After subscribing, paying (about 11 USD) and creating your username and password you will get an email with information about where you can download their program. The program is downloaded within seconds and then you simply open the program and add your username and password to it. Then you will find a long list of servers all around the world to choose between, and lots of the servers are located in the UK. Choose one of these servers and connect. In 10-15 seconds you will be connected to the server and as of then you will surf the web with a UK IP address, making activities on the net available to you wherever you are in the world, which earlier was only possible for people in the UK. On some occasions you will need to restart your web browser, but after that this will work perfect!
What does this service actually do? HideMyAss has servers all around the world, and as you start the program and connect to one of the servers a so called VPN is created. A VPN is a Virtual Private Network which is a technology for using the Internet or another intermediate network to connect computers to isolated remote computer networks that would otherwise be inaccessible. A VPN provides varying levels of security so that traffic sent through the VPN connection stays isolated from other computers on the intermediate network, either through the use of a dedicated connection from one “end” of the VPN to the other, or through encryption. (source: Wikipedia).
Thus with such a connection your surfing on the net will be encrypted and safe, so no people around you can get hold of your data or information.
We have tried HideMyAss ourselves and it worked perfect, so we can warmly recommend it to others. With the program you can also get IP addresses in all the other nations with such servers, so you will not only be able to get a UK IP address, but also Norwegian, Hungarian, Italian, Spanish and lots of other IP addresses.
PS: if you are not satisfied with the service you have a 30 day pay-back guarantee!
