I came across some websites that offer to change our IP addresses. One says we can surf the net anonymously, including changing our IP address and location. Most of the software packages are not free, so I have not tried it out yet. But my question is, so, will IP addresses no longer be unique or valid for identifying which computers were sending/requesting the information?
I thought only the ISP can determine our IP, so is it true we can change our IP via some commercial software?
If I change my IP address, then go to a website which is supposed to be banned by my country, will the ISP let me pass the check and I will be able to browse the website which should be blocked?
From what I know, if we want to go to a certain website, here is the flow:
My Computer ⇒ ISP ⇒ Website ⇒ ISP ⇒ My computer
I am not sure if that's the correct flow, but I am sure that, whichever website I want to visit, I need to go through my ISP, don't I?. So if we change our IP, will our ISP record our new IP or the original (assigned-by-ISP) IP?
