How do residential proxies work?
We will provide a specific set of ip:port proxies that will "backconnect" or route into fresh USA or worldwide proxies every 5 minutes, which is ideal for web crawling and marketing (since most proxies will get banned within a few days). Instead of replacing or switching your proxies manually, you'll save time with automated proxy rotation. The speed is slightly slower than purely dedicated proxies, but the IP address quality of our residential network makes them much more effective.
How many IPs can I authorize for access?
You can authorize as many IPs as you need in the control panel (within fair use). If you need to authorize 30+ servers on a single plan, we may ask that you upgrade to a larger plan.
How many proxies are in your pools?
There are tens of thousands of unique IPs in our combined proxy pools at any given time and there are new IPs added to our network every day.
What is a residential proxy port?
Each individual proxy port will automatically forward your request to a proxy in our network pool. You can set the rotation frequency in the control panel.
How many threads per port are allowed?
We allow 50+ threads per port.
Do you allow mailing?
We block mailing ports by default to prevent illegal activity, but most webmail services aren't blocked (such as Yahoo, Gmail, etc).
Are there any residential proxy usage restrictions?
Please review our usage guidelines and please do not use residential proxies for illegal purposes.
