    I get this URL Error (0): An error has occured while trying to browse through the proxy.
    Failed to connect to the specified host. Possible problems are that the server was not found, the connection timed out, or the connection refused by the host. Try connecting again and check if the address is correct.

    Hei man, you are pretty fast too..Just before a few hours only I have seen your thread asking suggestions for the domain name..

    It's pretty good name.. Saw your site..

    Try to fix it soon.

    And you could have used some more space in the site and for the layout it seems.. Or planning to put lots of ads?

    Nice anyway.! All the very best

    Thanks for the compliment.
    Luckily i found that domain.
    I don't know,why it is showing that error in the first day itself.
    I am expecting that the problem is with hosting.

    May not be..

    The problem might be with the script I think..I was simply trying to surf google from your proxy site..is it working well from your side?

    Design:

    It looks quite good and clean with a nice black-red color scheme and shiny black menus. The site name/logo is styled in an attractive way that is consistent with the color scheme. However what spoils the cleanliness and the overall tidy look a bit are ads in the middle of the site.

    I would really suggest moving the URL Address field to the top, just below the introduction and then put google ads below it. There is still the link ad unit near the URL field and if ads are still displayed above the "About Web Proxies.." section, they may still catch enough attention to generate clicks, even if you made it just a banner.

    After all, the function of that URL Address bar is the whole point of the site so it would make sense to give it some priority.

    The bar at the top while browsing sites through the proxy is simple and functional with no fuss. It's not too big and doesn't distract the user from browsing.

    Design Rating: 9/10

    Focus:


    Get-access.org is advertised as "the best and fastest anonymous proxy" which makes its focus clear. The only thing that detracts from it a bit are again the ads which seem to take priority over the actual URL Address field. Besides that, "proxy network" links are relevant, albeit not all proxy users will be very interested in proxy templates because only a small percentage of Get-access.org users may be inclined to set up their own proxy web site.

    Focus-wise, however, these are minor complaints. With a mentioned ad fix in the design section it's unlikely it is gonna leave anyone confused about what to do with the site and the introductory text makes it perfectly clear.

    Focus Rating: 10/10

    Content:

    Since this is a single service site the primary "content" is the service itself besides the typical introduction and any additional resources that may exist.

    The introduction briefly and clearly tells the user what they can do while enticing them to tell their friends. There is also a useful "About web proxies and anonymous web surfing" section that briefly explains what anonymous surfing is about.

    Another nice touch are the main menu links to popular social networking sites which when clicked access them anonymously via proxy. However, twitter is missing and twitter is arguably even more important than MySpace or Friendster. Just think of all the Iranian revolutionaries who depended on twitter access via proxy for fast communication.

    Regarding the functionality of the actual proxy service, it's fast, easy and the options in the bar above the proxy accessed site are a really nice touch. So in short, Get-access.org does its job quite well.

    Content Rating: 10/10

    Overall:

    This is a very good proxy web site with a rememberable name (albeit many people may type in get-access.com rather than .org), nice and simple design and a fast, easy and unobtrusive proxy service. The main thing that ruins the experience slightly are the placement of ads above the URL Address field which sends the wrong signal to the user. The field should really take priority as it is what the site is all about.

    Such details, even if nitpicky, still carry some weight given the number of competing services. With single service sites like this and so much competition, every single detail matters.

    Overall Rating: 9/10

    Its surprising to see the review in detail of my proxy site.
    The main thing which i understood is that " i need to place the ads below and place the url at the top " .i will change it.
    thanks for the review in detail.
