FAQ

Proxy General Information
What is a proxy in simple words?

A proxy is simply a set of characters in the format IP: port: login: password (example: 185.233.218.199:31280:fsdfw22s:Q3tsEr), which can be added to the settings of the PC / program/browser to changes your location and digital identity in the target website.

If you want a well-detailed definition of a proxy, you can google "what is a proxy".

* It’s worth noting that anonymity on the target sites and on the Internet, in general, is achieved by a set of measures in which the proxy is only one of the items.

Why do we need proxies and what problems do they solve?
  • Visiting websites that you cannot access without a proxy. Example: Sometimes you can’t open a website because your IP is listed in the spam database of that site for some reason. Using a proxy can help you bypass such problems.
  • Registration of new accounts in social. Networks and other sites. Most websites don’t allow more than one account per user, but using a proxy can solve that issue.
  • Anonymous Web surfing.
  • Scraping information from sites with the help of specialized programs and templates. Example: Scraping Yandex word stat using Key-Collector, Scraping the site-ranking restaurants using the template Zennoposter.
  • Using several accounts and reducing ping in games. Most games allow only one account per IP, but using a proxy can help you to bypass that.
  • Accessing sites that are blocked by government agencies.

* You cannot use our proxies for state-blocked sites

What’s the difference between IPv4 and IPv6 proxies? Which one is better?

The main difference between IPv4 proxy and IPv6 now is as follows:

  • IPv4 supports all Internet sites whilst only a few websites support the IPv6 Example: Instagram and Facebook support IPv6 while Twitter and VKontakte do not support it.
  • IPv6 proxies cost far less than IPv4 proxies.
  • IPv6 proxies are less reliable for work at the moment.

Why are IPv6 proxies less reliable:

It’s easy to track IPv6 proxies for websites that use that protocol. So, if you use an IPv6 proxy and your actions get tracked, your reliability rating on the website’s database will go down. That will result in a limitation in the actions you can make on that website and your chances of getting banned for misuse of the site’s functionalities will be higher.

The percentage of real users who use the IPv6 protocol for personal use (surfing the Internet, communicating with friends) is very low whilst the percentage of users who use the IPv6 protocol for spamming and earning purposes is very high (this is due to the cost of the IPv6 proxies). Conclusion: using an IPv6 proxy for spamming and earning purposes will get your chances of getting IP banned really high.

What’s the difference between the HTTP (s) and SOCKS (4.5) protocols? Which one is better?

The main difference between the protocols is the following:

  • SOCKS (4,5) is considered a more anonymous protocol when using a proxy, but HTTP (s) can be completely anonymous as well (elite).
  • SOCKS (4,5) is a more modern protocol and can be used when connecting to FTP.

* Our service provides proxies that can use both protocols, each of which is completely anonymous, therefore, the final site won’t be able to detect that you’re visiting it with a proxy. It's also worth noting that sites can detect that you’re using proxies not only by the proxy itself but by other parameters as well, such as the use of flash, DNS, webrtc, etc.

What is a public / free proxy?

A public proxy is a proxy that you can access free of charge from public sources, i.e. any interested person can use them. Free/public proxies are different from paid ones as they have lower speed, unstable connection, short life and they’re mostly used to spam sites and social networks.

What is a batch proxy?

The concept of batch proxies can mean the following:

  • In the more popular definition it’s a list of proxies which is constantly updated and sold to many people. These proxies have a better uptime and connection speed when compared to public (free) proxies. These proxies are not suitable for social networks and popular services because they are used by a lot of people.
  • In the less popular definition a batch proxy is the wholesale purchase of a proxy.
What is a private/individual/exclusive/elite/dedicated proxy?

These are paid proxies that will be used by you and only you during the whole rental period. These proxies are distinguished by their high speed, stability, and security when using various sites and social. networks.

The concept of "elite proxies" also has a less popular definition: they’re completely anonymous proxies that do not notify the site that a proxy is being used and do not transmit the real IP address of the user.

* Our proxies are elite and individual, i.e. completely anonymous and sold to one user only.

Proxy General Information
How to know how many subnets I got with the proxies?

Example 1: You were given 2 proxies of the type 46.13.226.225 and 46.14.205.182. They are from different subnets as the numbers after the first point are different. If the numbers after the first point weren’t different, these proxies would be on the same subnet.

Example 2: You were given 2 proxies of the type 46.13.226.225 and 47.13.205.182. They are from different subnets as the numbers after the first point are different. If the numbers after the first point weren’t different, these proxies would be on the same subnet.

Example 3: you have been given 2 proxies of the type 46.13.226.225 and 46.13.205.182. They are from the same network and subnet because the digits before and after the first point are similar in both IPs.
