Ip Blocked By Website
My IP has been blocked by a website. Is there a way I can …
When I am trying to access, and from my home network on any unit (PC, mobile, etc. ) it gives me a page saying:
403 forbidden nginx
If I try to use mobile data instead or connect to a different Wi-Fi it works fine.
I think Transfermarkt blocked me because I have been scraping their site, so it probably detected that a lot of traffic was coming from an ISP over a couple of days and then somehow blocked it (I wasn’t blocked instantly it was a couple of days after). Maybe they have blacklisted some kind of ID of my router or ISP, is there some way to renew that, like renewing an IP address on a PC so I won’t be blacklisted anymore?
The only similar question I was able to find was this:
Why am I forbidden from accessing this website from my home internet connection, but can access it from my cell phone?
And there wasn’t really any answers I could use, I seriously doubt I could convince transfermarkt to unblock me.
Forgive me if I sound ignorant, my question is just if there is a way to bypass the ban?

Your external IP is blocked, fixes may include:
Rebooting your router – you may get a different public IP after a reboot.
Contacting your ISP to get a new IP – some ISP’s will change your IP if you just request it.
Using a vpn or other tunnelling service to hide your external IP – many free tunnelling services exist, however be sure of the reputation of any service you use as they can see all your internet traffic.
Using a mobile connection such as a mobile hotspot, or setting up internet sharing via a mobile phone
Using a web cafe.

Yes, both legal and not-legal.
You could explain to them why you need their data wholesale, what you intend to do with it, and get their permission.
Bypassing a ban based on IP-addresses is simply a matter of obtaining a different IP-address, this might be as simple as rebooting a router or switching ISP. By doing so you are likely in breach of the sites terms and conditions though.

How Can a Website Block Me? – Azcentral
The first (and easiest) way that a user can be blocked by a website is to simply block the user name and password from being accepted. This only works if you have to sign into some kind of account to use the site and its services, with examples being Gmail or Once a user name has been noticed by site officials to be breaking the Terms of Service (the rules in which a user agrees to follow when signing up for a web site), the user name can simply be denied entry to the site. When the user attempts to log in from that point forward, he will be unable to and will have been effectively blocked from accessing the web page. This can be temporary for a predetermined period of time or permanent. Many online message board websites will require users to sign up for an account and block them if they become harmful to their community. User ID The first (and easiest) way that a user can be blocked by a website is to simply block the user name and password from being accepted. IP Address The second way a website can block you from accessing it is to block your IP address. IP is short for “internet protocol” address and is a unique multidigit number assigned to you automatically by your operating system once you connect to some kind of network. Every network has a different IP address, which makes people easily identifiable to network administrators. Once a website administrator notices that a specific user attached to a specific IP address is breaking the site’s Terms of Service, he can block that IP from being able to access the site. This means that nobody will ever be able to access the site again from that particular computer network. If a person’s IP address is blocked from a site while using a public computer in a setting like a library, nobody who uses that location for internet access will be able to connect to that site regardless of whether she was involved with the blocking or not. Proxy Sites Despite the seemingly sure-fire ways a website can block a person from accessing it, there are a number of things you can do to get around it. The easiest is to access a proxy site. A proxy site is a website that acts as a middle man between you and another website. In layman’s terms, if your IP address has been banned from a website, you can type the URL of the site into a proxy site, which will then allow you to connect. This is because the proxy site has its own unique IP address that hasn’t been blocked by the website in question.

Why My Access is Denied to Certain Websites? – WebNots
Many users complain that Google frequently shows I’m Not a Robot reCaptcha verification and block using the search. Nowadays, many websites block users based on different criteria. Generally, you will see “Access Denied” message on the browser with or without any explanation. Some sites like Google will block and ask you to verify that you are a human user. Here are some of the reasons for not able to access a particular website on the internet and possible solutions.
Google Search CAPTCHA Verification
What is Blocking?
Many countries, organizations and educational institutions block websites for different reasons. For example, you can’t access social networking sites like Facebook or Twitter in China. Similarly, schools and colleges restrict social access inside campus as a policy to control students. We are NOT discussing this type of blocking in this article. You need a VPN or proxy to unblock websites in this case.
What we discuss in this article is that you are blocked accessing only certain websites while you can access all other sites. This can also happen that you visit the site regularly and suddenly blocked without any reason. In such case, there are no problems with your ISP and it happens when the website owner blocks your access for special reasons.
Why I Am Blocked to Access Particular Website?
Here are some of the reasons why your access is blocked for certain websites:
1. Bad IP Address
Website owners track the traffic data and take action whenever there are malicious activities from particular IP address. For example, you maybe trying to leave lot of spam comments with backlink to your website. There are automatic tools to detect the spam and block your IP when the threshold is reached.
The problem here is that many ISP shares IP address with multiple people. Therefore, someone sharing your IP address maybe doing malicious stuff.
2. Geo Blocking
Unfortunately, website owners can block all IP addresses from certain countries from accessing their sites. This happens with China, Russia and few other countries from where lot of spamming happens. If you are living there and doing legitimate work, there are not much options other than using VPN.

3. Very Fast or Routine Browsing Behavior
You will be surprised to know there bad bots crawl websites to get confidential information. For example, these bots will use random username/password and try to login to the back end of your online store to steal customer data. Generally, website owners use tools reCAPTCHA code or image to block auto bots. However, you also need to type the reCAPTCHA code to login to the site. In some cases, the site can block you wrongly when your behavior matches the auto bots.
You are continuously clicking the same place for some reasons (for example, navigating in Google search result pages) to submit form content from prohibited words. Exactly clicking on the center of the verification image every time (this is how robots work) the work super fast (using Google search very fast) automated query to get data.
The simple way to overcome this issue is to try accessing the site after waiting for few seconds.
4. Using VPN and Proxy
People use VPN and proxies for two major reasons – one is to unblock websites and other is to access internet anonymously. The problem comes with the second reason that many people use VPN for illegal activities. Due to spam and malicious activities, most of the VPN servers are identified as spam servers. There are tools to check the spam servers from open source databases and block your access automatically.
The solution in this case is to disable the VPN, change the server or change your VPN service and try again.
You can also clear the browser’s cache and try to access the site again. This can be helpful if the cache is corrupted and preventing you from accessing the site.
6. Conflicting Extensions on Your Browser
Extensions help you to get additional features in web browsers. However, some extensions may cause you trouble due to outdated code. These extensions can potentially block websites and your browsing activity without your knowledge. Therefore, use incognito mode when you have problem in accessing websites. This will help to disable all installed extensions and help you to check whether you can access the sites without the extensions.
If you can access the site, you can disable extensions one-by-one to find the the one causing problem and delete it.
How to Get the Access Back?
As mentioned, you have solution for some problems.
However, there are many situations you can’t control the access.
Website owner blocked you based on your countryYou are using spam IP addressBlocked for behavioral reasons like harassing others in forums and hence the site owner blocked you from participatingWebsite use firewall protection like Cloudflare and blocks your IP for malicious activities
Good websites will show you the reason for blocking and ask you to contact them if you are a legitimate user. This could work for you when you are using a static IP address. Unfortunately, it may not work especially if you want to unblock VPN server’s IP address that millions of other spammers continue to use.
If you frequently see the access blocked message, check out all the above factors. You can correct the problems at your end and contact the site owner if possible. Otherwise, you have to look for alternate websites to get the information when your IP is blocked.
