 Option 3: Change DNS servers

Some users that were not able to connect to reddit.com have reported this method to be successful, and same as for the web proxies, it is free. In case you have problems with this method, you should try a real VPN service.

 Option 4: Use online translators

You may try to unblock access to reddit.com via online translators such as Google Translate or Bing Translator. This method may work because when you try to translate "http://reddit.com" in another language, the online translators may allow you to browse reddit.com directly via their web translation service, and actually you visit the translation service and not reddit.com directly...

 Option 5: Try Google cache

Google cache may be another possible method useful to unblock reddit.com site as it acts similar to online translation services, it allows you to browse the site via their web interface and so acting like a web proxy service. You can use Google cache to bypass filters that block access to reddit.com on your computer. If the site does not work correctly, you can always use a VPN service.

However, this web service works like a web proxy, because it may allow you to browse reddit.com via their web service directly, bypassing Internet filters.

Another possibly valid method to access reddit.com may be to use HTTP (80) or SOCKS proxies IP addresses. You can configure your web browser (Mozilla, Internet Explorer, Opera, Safari) to use an IP:PORT proxy and visit reddit.com website anonymously.

Tor works from any web browsers and you may try to use Tor to access reddit.com and bypass filters. If you still can't access the site, get a VPN service.
