Rapidshare , Mediafire and other file sharing sites are blocked in india . Video lovers who watches their favorite videos or likes to share interesting clippings on file sharing sites such as Rapidshare, Mediafire, Megaupload, Hotfile, Fileserve and more will not be able to do so henceforth in India. When they tried to access such file sharing websites, there will be an error message “this site has been blocked as per instructions from Department of Telecom (DOT).
If you want to bypass the DOT blocked file sharing websites in India, you can use these methods:
1. Google DNS
Change your DNS to 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 . You can use DNS Jumper or NameBench to determine which DNS is faster for you.
While proxy usually works to bypass blocked website but when it comes to file sharing generally proxy is useless because of low speed. So you need to use VPN which is faster and more user friendly.

TunnelBear is a fancy app that gives you US or UK IP Address. It can be used to bypass hulu, Pandora, and many other blocked website in the world. I already tried it with file sharing and works fine and the speed is very fast. But only limitation is for free user it provide limited access .
