Frequently asked question

What is an IP ban?

An IP ban prevents a specific IP address from accessing a website, server, or network. It’s deployed after the user violates rules and regulations, preventing unauthorized access or stopping malicious activities such as spamming, hacking, or distributing malware. When an IP ban is imposed, any device using the banned IP address will be unable to connect or access the restricted resource.

Is it possible to scrape Amazon without proxies?

Technically, it’s possible to scrape Amazon without using proxies. However, we’re not recommending trying your luck out, as Amazon has strict anti-scraping measures. Repeatedly scraping the website without proxies can result in blocking or banning your IP address. Using proxies allows you to route web scraping requests through multiple IPs, making it more difficult for Amazon to detect and block your scraping activity. Additionally, proxies can help avoid CAPTCHAs that prevent the scraping bots from extracting data.

What use cases does our Web Scraping API work for?

Web Scraping API is perfect for scraping almost every website, aggregating travel fares, and detecting possible malicious websites for fraud protection purposes.

What are ready-made scrapers?

Ready-made scrapers are pre-configured tools within our Scraping APIs, designed for easy and quick data collection. They eliminate the need for extensive technical knowledge, custom scraper development, and proxy management, making them ideal for users seeking a low/no-code solution. By using ready-made scrapers, you can access and structure large data sets efficiently.
