3 Ways to get a Greek IP address
1. Use a VPN service
The solution that I recommend in order to get such an IP is by using a VPN service. VPNs provide reliable connection, good speed and excellent security. As far as I know there are no good free VPN services that provide access to servers located in Greece. Thus, you should go for the premium solutions.
Here are the VPN providers that I found and that provide Greek IP address:
- ibVPN – Athens (1 server)
- NordVPN – Athens (1 server)
- ExpressVPN – Athens (1 server)
- PureVPN – Thessaloniki (6 servers)

2. Manually change your IP using paid or open proxies
An alternative to VPNs are the open or paid proxies. But, you may need to pay attention to your privacy. DO NOT enter your credit card details or other sensitive info while browsing using open proxies.
You may find proxies with Greek IP addresses on Free-Proxy.cz. After you choose one you need to setup your browser to use that proxy. Take for example 220.127.116.11:65103 and configure your browser to use it when you connect to the internet.

3. Use Web Proxies
Another method to browse using Greek IP address is by using a web proxy. It is free, faster to start, but not better than VPNs. Web proxies are usually slow and unreliable for browsing and streaming.
One such a web proxy with Greek IP address is Teleport. Also, you may Google for “Greek web proxy” or “Greek proxy”. If you know more feel free to share them in the comments below.
Important! Before starting to use a web proxy please read the following post: Risks of using a proxy site.
