How to Create Your Own Proxy with Google App Engine

Have you ever wanted to browse a website that is blocked by a firewall on your network? Well, you can bypass those restrictions by using a proxy. While there are many proxies available on the web, they can also be blocked. The solution? Create your own proxy using Google App Engine (GAE).

A proxy allows you to access blocked and restricted websites, even behind firewalls. With GAE, you get a 1GB/day bandwidth quota for free, which is more than enough for browsing the web. And the best part? It’s a simple process that only requires a few tasks and costs nothing!

How to Create Your Own Proxy Using Google App Engine


Before we begin, make sure you have Python 2.7 and the App Engine Python SDK installed on your system. You will also need the Mirrorrr tool, which we’ll use to create the proxy.

Task 1: Create an Account on Google App Engine

Go to and sign up for a Gmail account if you don’t already have one. Once you’re signed in, you’ll be directed to the GAE dashboard.

Task 2: Create an Application on Google App Engine

Click on the “Create application” button to create your proxy application on Google App Engine. Choose a unique Application identifier, as this will be the subdomain address for your proxy site. Then, click on “Create application.”

Task 3: Develop Your Proxy Application Using GAE Python SDK

Open the Google App Engine Launcher and create a new application. Enter your Application identifier as the application name. Choose a directory to store your application’s local files, and then click on “Create.”

Next, copy the files from the Mirrorrr tool to your application’s local folder, replacing the old files. You can also customize the layout, style, and images of your proxy website by editing the files within the “static” folder.

Before proceeding with the deployment, open your app’s ‘app.yaml’ file and replace “yourappid” with your application identifier.

Task 4: Deploy Your Proxy Application on Google App Engine

To check your proxy application, click on “Run” in the Google App Engine Launcher. If everything looks good, it’s time to deploy your application. Click on “Deploy,” enter your Google account credentials, and let the deployment process run. Once deployed, you can access your proxy website at the web address:

Final Remarks

Congratulations! You’ve successfully created your own proxy using Google App Engine. Now, you can access any website from any computer, behind any firewall, on any network. Enjoy unrestricted web browsing!


1. Can I use this proxy to access websites that are blocked by my educational institution or workplace?

Yes, you can use your own proxy to access websites that are blocked by firewalls, including those imposed by educational institutions or workplaces.
