Access sites available only in certain region?

What is the best way to access sites available only in certain region? Proxy or VPN or something else?

I had a look at your proxy. Two questions.
1. Is it safe
2. Is there a noticable performance impact.
Thanks for the answer.

I can tell you that there is a performance impact when using a proxy. Hidemyass seems to be safe but using proxy's in general is a pain.

So do proxies have more performance impact compared to VPNs?

You can also use Tor, but it'l be slower.
