Computer Hiding an IP address

Is there anyone who knows how to hide an IP from being logged by the site you are visiting. I know of some paid companies but I am looking for a different solution. Is there some way in UNIX to mask the ip.

Help this is urgent.

Use a proxy server.... some people subscribe to proxy services that keep the identity anonymous. You might find one of the proxies in this list useful:

http://tools.rosinstrument.com/proxy/

There are no other good days to do this..... because IP packets need source and destination addresses and these can be traced. So, you must proxy to mask the IP... and to do this, you need a cooperative proxy server.
