Netflix announced at the beginning of January that the VPN, proxy, and DNS servers among its users had run out and that they would all be blocked. The only good thing about the news is that even if it is difficult to watch movies or series online, there will always be a way to access them and we will teach you how to do it.
How to set up Netflix with a VPN without being blocked step by step
Likewise Hulu, they have started to go after VPN sites and even started a bit before Netflix, if you go into Hulu and from some known VPN server, the page will automatically tell you that the content it has is currently not available for the United States, said comment will not be true.
Around the world, many people use VPNs to break the region restrictions that each of the pages gives us. What these proxies and VPNs do is send the browsing data through another country where the content is available, in this way Netflix or Hulu imagine that you are browsing from there. The objective of VPNs is nothing more than to transfer an IP corresponding to that country, duplicating it to multiple user sessions in the world.
How can they block your access?
For NETFLIX or HULU it is very easy to detect and block a VPN, all they have to do is detect where the users are connected from and thus check the number of accounts that are connected from different parts of the world that have the same IP. These repeated IP addresses can be added to a blacklist, then the VPN service produces a new IP address which will be blocked again by Netflix or HULU, in simpler words, these providers do not have a way of knowing if you are using a VPN or not, what they can see are the IP addresses that are being shared by significant amounts of people in different parts of the world.
We recommend reading everything you need to know about Netflix and the free account for a month.
It is logical, to avoid being blocked you should not use a shared VPN, what you should do is obtain a private IP address and associate it with your VPN server, this can be done in different ways:
Continue to use your VPN server but get a unique IP address
Many VPN services offer a unique IP address for an additional fee.
For these services, we must look at what the dedicated IP or the static IP expresses to us. This type of service will allow us to continue watching Netflix or Hulu through a VPN without being blocked.
Among the most common and popular VPN services are: TorGuard, PureVPN and Hide My Ass!, all of these for a little extra money.
Hosting your own VPN on a hosting service (Only for users with hosting)
If your bandwidth at home doesn’t promise you enough speed, you might choose to install a VPN server on a web hosting service. Any web service can act if you have the knowledge to configure the VPN from software, however, certain hosting services have a registration panel that allows the installation and configuration of the VPN server. Indeed this is not a viable alternative for the average customer but is aimed at users who have the understanding to configure and manage their own servers.
Once this is finished, you will have your own VPN server living in a data center, which will undoubtedly be able to offer you a much better bandwidth than what you have at home; even if you have enough bandwidth you can share this server with your family and friends. This option is slightly cheaper than a dedicated VPN service, although it does require a bit more work.
Set up your own VPN at home so you can use it from anywhere while traveling:
If what you need is to be able to access your Netflix account while you are traveling, a very good option is to host your own VPN server on your home internet connection. Later you will only have to link to it and you will be taking advantage of Netflix as if you were sitting in the comfort of your home. This alternative will be very useful for you to watch series from anywhere, however, you will have restrictions regarding the load on the bandwidth because some users do not have very high speeds for browsing their home internet connections.
You can host your own VPN on a router using some third-party firmware like DD-WRT or its OpenWRT derivative or you could do it from a dedicated server at home. Another alternative would be to set up an SSH server and use the SSH Tunnel program.
Another viable option is to download applications like Hello, this is an online service that facilitates access to the network with total freedom regardless of where you are located, it facilitates VPN access which serves as a filter on your device connected to the internet and the page you want to visit
The first thing to do is download an application called HOLA, it is very simple, it is available for Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Android, Windows, and many more, to download this application we have to access the Internet on the Hola’s page which is: https://hola.org/ we have to hit it where it says FREE, and then a box will appear where it will tell us if we want to add to Chrome, we give it where it tells us to add, in many cases it sends us to a quick access that we can skip, we wait until our device is downloaded and installed and we are ready to use it with HULU or NETFLIX.
To watch a movie or series we access the Hulu or Netflix page at the top of the page we will find the logo of our HELLO application we select access to the VPN server from both the USA, UK, and many other countries, we select the first one we wait for Hulu connects with the VPN that it offers us, Hello, it is in charge of updating the page and that’s it we will be connected with a VPN from the United States, we enter with our account, we are looking for a series, we select a chapter or a movie and we will immediately notice to start reproducing.
It is not the best way, but it is the only way to get the best movies and series. Although it is known, there is no true way to block VPN traffic completely
This is not complete for a variety of reasons. There is no way to get a free VPN, so you will have to invest a bit of money (usually less than 10 euros per month, depending on how much time you can buy at a time). The million-dollar question is? If you are going to spend 10 euros a month, why don’t you get the Netflix rate directly?
These solutions will continue to work as there is no real way to block all of this VPN traffic, you will only gradually adapt to these tricks. VPN and proxy services will continue to operate and change IPs constantly, but by getting a static IP address you can avoid all these hassles.
