Using Dedicated Datacenter Proxies

Oxylabs Dedicated Datacenter proxies use basic HTTP protocol. In order to start using Dedicated Datacenter proxies, you will need to get a username, password and link to your IPs list from the account manager or support team at

Proxy lists

Once you purchase Oxylabs Dedicated Datacenter IPs, you will receive two URLs to your proxy list from your account manager or our support staff. All you need to do is open one of the URLs in your browser (you will be prompted to enter your login credentials) or make a GET request with your credentials to one of the links. The link which starts with{key} will provide you IPs list in plain text:

While URL which starts with{uuid} will give you access to IPs list formatted in JSON:


Oxylabs Dedicated Datacenter proxies use basic HTTP authentication that requires sending username and password. In order to get your credentials, contact your account manager or support team at

Another authentication option is whitelisting IPs. You can create a list of trusted IP addresses or IP ranges that can access your proxies. Read more at IP Whitelisting.

Depending on your authentication method, you may need to change proxy port:

Proxy portUsage
60000Required when using login credentials (username and password). When using a rotation machine (virtual machine) then this port is needed both with credentials and authenticating through whitelisted IPs.
65432 Required when authorizing through whitelisted IPs.

IP Whitelisting

If you are using our Dedicated Datacenter Proxies directly, without the rotation machine (VM), you can whitelist your IPs yourself. 

Simply log into the dashboard at and on the sidebar at the bottom you will see a section named “Add Whitelist”. Click on the link and you will be navigated to the self-whitelist page.

On the page, you can manage all the whitelisted IP addresses that you use to access our Dedicated Datacenter Proxies. You can whitelist individual IPs and subnets up to /24. If you wish to whitelist a larger subnet, please contact your account manager or the support team at


You may also whitelist IPs by sending queries directly to our endpoints. Please note there is a five-minute cooldown for confirming any changes to your whitelisted IPs list.

Retrieve your whitelisted IPs list


Sample output:

Please note: 

  • If you are using the Rotation Machine (VM), you cannot whitelist the IPs yourself. However, we can do it for you, if you provide us with the list of IP addresses that will be used to connect to the proxies. After we whitelist the IPs, you will no longer need any login credentials to access the proxies.

  • If you are using whitelisted IPs to access the proxies, you will need to use port 65432. For the rotation machine (VM), the port remains 60000.

Rotation machine (VM)

Oxylabs Proxy Rotator, or rotation machine (Virtual Machine), is an additional feature that allows getting higher success rates and saving your in-house resources. Proxy Rotator is a great feature that rotates your IP addresses, or lets you keep one IP address for a certain time. In other words, you can control your sessions depending on your needs.
Find out more about the benefits of Datacenter Proxy Rotator or read how to use this feature.

Datacenter Proxy API

Oxylabs Datacenter Proxy API is an additional feature that allows you to control your proxy pool yourself. With it, you can replace your IPs from a specific subnet in your existing proxy list. This helps to replace flagged or blacklisted IPs more easily. 

Check our documentation for more information on how to use the Datacenter Proxy API.

The “Statistics” section shows detailed information on how much traffic you have used, how many requests you made, and how many errors you faced day-to-day. You can additionally see detailed statistics (traffic you used and requests you sent) by your requested targets or your owned subnets. For more precise information, you can filter usage statistics for any selected period.  

1. Here is an example of how usage statistics appear in the Datacenter Proxy dashboard:

2. By clicking “By Target”, you will be able to see the required usage statistics by your target websites.

3. By clicking “By Subnets”, you will be able to see the required usage statistics by your subnets.

Proxy lists

The “Proxy Lists” section shows how many proxies you have and what datacenter proxies are dedicated to you. You can choose the format of how you want to see your proxy lists: plain text or JSON. From these lists, you can also select which proxy you want to use for your tasks.


Aside from the usual user:password authentication, we also offer IP whitelisting. By connecting via whitelisted IPs, you can access datacenter proxies that are assigned to you without user:password authentication.

You can whitelist as many IPs as you need. You can also whitelist not only single IPs but the whole IP range (e.g., By default, the largest range you can whitelist by yourself is /24. If you want to whitelist a more extensive range, please contact your dedicated account manager.

You can add or remove them as a simple text list via the “Edit whitelist” interface (see a screenshot below). Please note that after whitelisting, you have to change your port credentials from 60000 to 65432.


Oxylabs Dedicated Datacenter Proxies are a great solution for companies that look for fast and reliable proxies. Their integration is simple, and they can be used with third-party software.
