Proxies let the users surf the website from blocked location like a school, university library or an organization. They keep you safe and secure by maintaining your privacy. In simple words, the proxy servers hide your identity and access blocked websites on your behalf. On the web network, there are a lot of websites which offer features like file-sharing, instant messaging or leaving comments for the user's profile, and a lot of schools and organizations have blocked such websites to be accessed from their locations to restrict people from logging in to these websites.
The development of proxy servers has a technological advance over these restrictions. These proxies let you access websites from restricted locations and are a source to bypass secure sites from blocked locations, as they have the ability to bypass the network firewalls and filters. These proxy servers enable the users to surf the internet from blocked servers and are compatible to surf through sites which have audio and video streaming platforms like Youtube.
Another advantage of a proxy server is that the chance of getting virus, spyware and other malicious scripts is reduced, and as a result your computer becomes a safer and reliable machine.
A lot of web sites offer the proxy servers and most of them provide proxy templates as well. Designing a proxy template is not an easy task. Considering this fact, a lot of websites offer pre-designed proxy templates for you. These proxy templates can be downloaded and are simple and easy to use.
The downloaded proxy templates are free of cost, but most of the host websites may require you to back-link to their websites. PHP and CGI proxy templates are also available on such websites. The downloaded files for the proxy templates and themes comprise of the necessary formatting and setup files and you can customize your website as per your requirement. Normally, the downloaded files are in zip format and you may need to extract the graphic files, images, fonts, Photoshop files and the script files. To avoid any misuse of the script files, the configuration files are available in the download which lets you customize the template, as you may require, and edit the text files like the Meta keywords, description and titles.
