Oxylabs’ Enterprise Dedicated Datacenter Proxies, purchased through the Sales Team, offer complete ownership of a proxy IP along with access to the market’s largest proxy pool, exceptional speeds, unlimited bandwidth, and the largest selection of proxy locations.
In this guide, you’ll find all the fundamental information that’ll get you on track to start using Oxylabs’ Dedicated Datacenter Proxies.
To start off, head over to the Oxylabs dashboard and register an account. Once you purchase Dedicated Datacenter Proxies through the Sales Team or sign up for the free trial, you’ll receive an email with proxy credentials from your Account Manager or our Support Team.
The easiest way to receive your Dedicated Datacenter Proxy list is by logging in to the Oxylabs dashboard. Then, on the left-hand side menu, choose Proxy lists, which will give you the option to view your list in plain text format:
Plain text example:
Another way to retrieve your proxy list is through the API. Visit our documentation to find further guidelines.
Follow the steps below to make a request using a proxy in cURL:
1. Pick an IP address from the acquired list.
2. Form the cURL request and specify your chosen IP in the request parameters.
You can copy this code below:
curl -x 18.104.22.168:60000 -U user1:pass1 http://ip.oxylabs.io
3. Run the code to send a GET request to the http://ip.oxylabs.io website, which will send back the IP address of your request.
For examples in other programming languages, visit our documentation.
If you want to target a specific state or city, contact your Account Manager or our Customer Support Team to receive IP addresses from the exact locations you require.
Session management is available with Oxylabs’ free Proxy Rotator that rotates your IP addresses or lets you keep one for a specified timeframe. In other words, you can control your proxy sessions depending on your needs.
To have Proxy Rotator enabled for your Dedicated Datacenter Proxies, please contact your Account Manager or our Support Team.
Proxy Rotator uses a single endpoint for requests. Below you can find a cURL code sample that makes a request to https://ip.oxylabs.io. Note that the vm.oxylabs.io domain is just an example only:
curl -x vm.oxylabs.io:60000 -U username:password https://ip.oxylabs.io
To keep the same IP address for subsequent requests, first, you’ll need to know the serial number of the proxy IP you want to keep. You can achieve this by looking at the proxy list that you receive from us, since Proxy Rotator uses it to rotate IPs. There, proxies are numbered sequentially from top to bottom, starting with s1 at the top. For instance:
22.214.171.124 - s1 126.96.36.199 - s2 ... 188.8.131.52 - s49 184.108.40.206 - s50
Once you have this information, you can add the --proxy-header "Proxy-Server: sXXX" header to your request, where sXXX is the number of the proxy, for example, s5 or s2541. Here’s a basic cURL example:
The same query is presented below:
curl -x vm.oxylabs.io:60000 -U user1:pass1 https://ip.oxylabs.io --proxy-header "Proxy-Server: s10"
By default, the HTTP protocol is enabled for Dedicated Datacenter Proxies. If you want to activate SOCKS5 protocol for your account, contact our Customer Support Team via live chat or email, or your Account Manager, and they’ll assist you.
These are the most common response codes you can get while using our Datacenter Proxies. If you receive any other response code, please contact your Account Manager for more information.
|Response code||Error Message||Description|
||Not Found||The specified resource couldn’t be found.|
||Proxy Authentication Required||An authorization header is missing, or your credentials are incorrect.|
||Internal Server Error||We had a problem with our server. Try again later.|
||Service Unavailable||Failed to connect to the target server. DNS failure to resolve the target server address.|
||Gateway Timeout||A proxy server timed out while waiting for a response from the target server.|
The Oxylabs dashboard is the place to see usage statistics. The Statistics section will show the traffic volume you’ve used, the number of requests you’ve made, and how many errors you’ve faced day-to-day. Here, you can also filter the statistics to view specific information for any selected period. Below you’ll find a few screenshots of the Dedicated Datacenter Proxies dashboard.
1. Here’s an example of the usage statistics:
2. You can filter the statistics by targets, subnets, IPs, users, and countries. There are also additional filters for each tab: date range, IP, subnet, target, or user. On this page, you’ll also find the amount of encountered errors.
If you have any questions or want to try our Enterprise Dedicated Datacenter Proxies, don't hesitate to contact our Support Team at any time via live chat or email.
Furthermore, you can follow our content to learn more on scraping-related topics and find in-depth guides with code samples:
Yes, you can use as much bandwidth as your project requires without any additional or hidden fees.
Yes, we do. The Datacenter Proxy API allows you to add or replace proxy subnets, see the status of these processes, see historical changes, and check IPs that are offline due to downtime. Please refer to this documentation in OpenAPI format.
Before using Dedicated Datacenter Proxies for web scraping purposes, you should meet specific requirements to unlock the full potential of Oxylabs proxies. Here’s a list of expected infrastructure before using proxies:
Servers to make requests from
A programmer proficient in a supported language
A web scraper and target URLs
A parser to extract the data you need
A database or storage solution
Here’s a list of expected knowledge:
Understanding of IP addresses and how they relate to proxies;
Basic knowledge of HTTP/SOCKS5 protocols and proxy authentication methods;
Ability to configure proxy settings in the chosen programming language or application;
Awareness of potential issues that can arise when using proxies, such as speed and reliability limitations or IP blocking by certain websites.
Yet, we have plenty of resources that can help along the way, such as blog posts, YouTube videos, integration guides, developer-friendly documentation, and GitHub repositories, so be sure to check them out.
When using proxy servers for web scraping, we highly recommend forming your own browser fingerprint to further enhance and optimize the success of your scraping operations.
A browser fingerprint is a unique user identifier that all websites can source from your HTTP requests. It includes information about your device and browser, such as user agent, screen resolution and size, CPU/GPU information, plugins and extensions, and even installed fonts.
You can create a fingerprint by using and adjusting HTTP headers, cookies, scraping sessions, and other factors that websites use to identify organic versus automated traffic. If you want to learn more about this topic, see our materials on what is a browser fingerprint and its impact on web scraping.
IP whitelisting is another proxy authentication method you can use to create a list of trusted IP addresses or IP ranges that can access your proxies without the user:password authentication. Note that you’ll need to use port 65432 when accessing proxies through whitelisted IPs. Visit this documentation page for more details.
Yes, you can. Click the Contact sales button at the top-right corner of this page and fill in the form, or send us an email. To simplify the process, please provide details about your intended use case of Dedicated Datacenter Proxies.
Once you submit your request and after our team assesses it, our sales team will contact you. You can find more details regarding the trial period on our FAQ site.
You can choose from different plans and pay monthly, or pick a yearly subscription and save 10% every month! Our Dedicated Datacenter Proxy subscription plans:
* Price per IP and number of IPs may vary based on IP location, target, and other factors.
Each plan includes unlimited bandwidth and domains, 99.9% uptime, and quick response times. To learn more about each subscription plan, visit the pricing page.
