    Hi Friends

    I have a method which the mentor said like bellow

    "I recommend using a USA Proxy/VPN/IP"

    So what i have to purchase. I tried to find information on these, but got some confusion.

    My ISP gives an IP address to access internet. So how my IP address get change when i take the above services? Do they install any software in my computer?

    Please help me to get the right solution

    just "rented" a US vpn ip from vpnjack 4 days ago. so far, so good. it disconnects like every 10-12 hours or so. i haven't used vpn for a long time, cause i prefer a vps to save money on power. the setup to change your ip address is pretty simple. there's a guide. i've also tried ibvpn, they have an installer and will configure your ip automatically.

    A proxy server works as a gateway between your web browser and the internet. If you use a US proxy, you browser's IP address will therefore appears to originate from the US. There are many proxy's out there that doesn't need to be installed, you can just run them through your browser. For the VPN however, you will need to install it on your computer. The advantage here is that in changes your entire machines IP - and not only your browser. Personally I prefer VPN, but it depends on your need.
