Maintenance-free web scraping infrastructure
Free proxy services are usually associated with subpar performance. Sourcing and maintaining a sizable and up-to-high-standard proxy pool is difficult and costly. In turn, free proxy service providers usually can't afford to offer more than just the basic functionality. However, there are several ways free proxy providers can sustain their services:
Selling usage statistics to third-party advertisers.
Locking more desirable features behind a paywall.
What is a paid proxy server?
Paid proxy servers offer all the proxy functions and supporting features you can expect. They typically provide faster connection speeds and better reliability, including vast global location selection and unlimited bandwidth.
Paid services are not subject to the same usage limitations and bandwidth constraints as free proxy servers.
Is a VPN the same as a proxy server?
No. A VPN creates an encrypted tunnel between your device and the server to hide your IP address and protect your data.
A proxy server doesn't provide encryption or a secure tunnel. It simply acts as an intermediary between your device and the internet.
Proxies usually work with specific apps, while VPNs route the entirety of your internet traffic. If you’re using a VPN, proxies might create an interference problem and vice versa.
Are proxy servers illegal?
Proxy servers are a legitimate tool individuals and organizations use to improve their online security and privacy and to access geo-restricted content.
The legality of proxy servers depends on a specific task at hand and applicable laws & regulations. Ensure you align with the terms of a target web page and local laws.
If unsure, we suggest seeking professional legal guidance. Also, check our blog post on the topic: is web scraping legal?
Can my IP be tracked if I use a proxy?
No, when using a proxy, your personal IP isn’t visible to a server (website) you connect to.
As your request is rerouted through an intermediary, the server sees only the IP address of a proxy.
Are paid proxies safe?
Generally, paid proxies are safe as premium proxy service providers take all necessary precautions to ensure ethically sourced proxies, fast connectivity, reliable uptimes, worldwide location coverage, and extensive customer support.
