A forward proxy server is an intermediary computer server which sits between a computer accessing the internet, and the destination website this computer is trying to reach. In other words the role of the forward proxy is to perform a task on behalf of another device - it is a gateway, accepting traffic and forwarding it through to another server.
Users can configure the proxy in their browser settings, and then all HTTP requests are routed via the proxy server.
When a user surfs the internet many websites, especially search engines, will present different content depending on the user's country. The websites determine the user's country by detecting the user's IP address and might change the content presented based on that. In some cases, access to the website will be blocked altogether.
