Proxy servers are streamlined Internet servers specially made to relay IP traffic from one set of addresses to another in order to bypass region-based restrictions and avoid censorship.

Thanks to proxy servers you can access the webpages and services of your favorite multimedia content provider from any location in the world. Thus, you can enjoy the content provided by BBC iPlayer, iTV, Hulu, Pandora, NetFlix and more.

Sales and marketing groups use proxy in order to perform GeoIP tests in order to check if the advertising and local content is reaching the targeted markets. As mentioned above, you can use proxy to avoid content filtering from nations or institutions that censor the web.
