What is a Residential Proxy?

A residential proxy is an intermediary server between you and the website you're trying to access. This server has an IP address that's been provided by an Internet Service Provider (ISP), not a data center. These IP addresses are attached to physical locations across the globe at a country or city level. Requests coming from residential proxies stand out for their legitimacy, allowing you to gather public data efficiently.

Unlimited concurrent sessions

Other proxy services may charge extra for additional concurrent sessions but at Oxylabs, we do not limit concurrent sessions, so you can easily scale up your web scraping projects whenever required. 

Single backconnect entry

A single backconnect proxy gives you access to a continuously rotating proxy pool, allowing you to control sessions and avoid IP bans and CAPTHCAs. In return, an average of 99.95% success rates are guaranteed for your scraping projects.

State, city and ASN targeting

Our Residential Proxy network covers 195 locations and offers country, city, state-level and ZIP code geo-location targeting. Oxylabs proxies help access geo-restricted content without extra charge.

Large and stable Residential Proxy network

Power your web scraping projects with rotating Residential Proxies from a pool of 100M+ IPs. With a worldwide coverage of Residential IP addresses, you can easily overcome geo-location blocks.

"We need access to residential IPs to be able to reliably analyze our price accuracy on trivago. As some advertisers adjust their price display based on the user’s location (e.g. net for US) we need to be able to use a local IP to simulate this scenario."

Why you should start using Oxylabs Residential Proxies

Gather information as an organic user

One of the most common applications for any residential IP address is to scrape certain public information. This includes product listings, prices, and similar public information. Most sites are very cautious with the traffic they get, meaning that if they find the traffic suspicious, they will block it. Residential proxies come in handy here, as they allow you to imitate an organic internet user. Such traffic is highly unlikely to be classified as a bot-like activity, ensuring high success rates.

Access content in any geo-location

Residential proxies allow accessing content that may be unavailable in specific geographic locations. Depending on the country, or state, websites may display content differently. Therefore companies that gather global information need access to data all over the world. This includes e-commerce companies that use dynamic pricing, businesses that monitor minimum advertised price (MAP), or those that work with fare aggregation in various fields.

Choose how you want to control your proxies

Manage your proxies by signing in to the dashboard or through the backend services. Our Residential IPs have an enhanced public API, allowing you to manage your Residential Proxies without the need to log into the dashboard. With Oxylabs Residential Proxy API, you can create, update, or delete sub-users, set traffic limits, as well as get statistics on your proxy users’ traffic. We keep improving our services, so you can expect more features to be added to the public API soon.

Oxylabs' customer service is really good. One time I used their proxies with captcha solving software. The software was actually using my connection, and it ran up my data bill. Oxylabs was kind enough to forgive this overage even though it was totally my fault. I didn't even ask for a credit, my rep simply offered it.
