Create Your Own Online Proxy Server for FREE

You can deploy a proxy server with google app engine in a few minutes, without have to worry about the technical knowledge. This will be helpful to access blocked sites at workplace and schools. Have Fun!

How to Create Your Own Proxy Server ?

Step 1 : Open and login in with your google account.

Step 2 : Click the “Create an Application” button. If this is your first time then Google may ask to verify code via sms to your mobile phone number.

Step 3: Select an Application Identifier and it will become the sub-domain of  proxy server. Give a title (say My Proxy Server) to your app, set the Authentication Option “Open to all users”, create the application.

Step 4: Go to, download the 2.7 Installer and install Python. If you are using Mac, Python 2.7 is already installed on your computer.

Step 5: Download the application files required to create a proxy server from here . Extract the zip file on your desktop. You may edit the “main.html” file , to customize the front end of your proxy server.

Step 6: Go to, download the “Google App Engine SDK for Python” and install it. When the installation has finished, click “Run Launcher” button.

Step 7: Inside the Google App Engine Launcher, Select Edit >> Preferences from the desktop and set the correct values for the Python Path, App Engine SDK and the Text Editor (set this is as WordPad or write.exe and not notepad.exe).

Step 8:  Click File tab >> Add Existing Application under the Google App Launcher program and browse to the folder that contains the files that you extracted in Step 5. Once the project is added to App Engine, select the project and click Edit to replace “YOUR_APP_ID” with your App ID (Sub-Domain you created in Step 3). Save and close the file.

Step 9:  Hit Deploy, enter your Google account credentials and, within few seconds, your online proxy server will be deployed. The public URL (or web address) of your new proxy server will be your (replace _app_id with your App Engine Identifier).

(Note: The generated proxy server is basic one therefore it willl not be functional for the sites which require logins, like gmail.)
