We’re Launching the New Smartproxy Proxy API

We rarely post news about our platform updates, but this week we have a real banger – the new Public Smartproxy API is now LIVE! Many of you asked for more API features, so our developers did a bangup job building it just the way you want it. From now on, our API lets you manage your whole account without logging in to the dashboard.

The old API allowed you to access and use our proxies, but now we are stepping up and letting you manage the most important features of your Smartproxy account through the API. You can find all necessary information in our proxy API documentation.

The documentation and samples are currently available for cURL, Python, JavaScript, Ruby, and Node, but we will be adding more languages in the future.

Smartproxy-API features

What is a proxy API?

An API (or Application Programming Interface) lets you access proxy services, account settings and traffic data in the most efficient way possible.

A public API accepts simple commands and returns lightweight JSON data from our servers. This means that the API makes most functions available without logging into the site directly.

It also makes using Smartproxy less resource-intensive, as you don’t need to render HTML or CSS code to access the service.

Want to use rotating proxies through our API? Register now!

Difference Between Residential and Datacenter Proxies

What Is the Difference Between Residential and Datacenter Proxies?

Proxies act as intermediaries hiding your IP address when connecting to the internet. They’re particularly useful if you can’t access a certain website because you are banned or when you’re trying to access geo-blocked content like on Netflix, YouTube, or a flight ticket platform. Residential and datacenter proxies are the main two types that offer a way to hide your IP and, among many other things, can help you anonymously scrape data from the web. However, they differ significantly – so which proxy type is the ideal choice for you?
