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 new Public Smartproxy API is now LIVE!

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.




Smartproxy API features

As you can see, the new API lets you do almost everything with a Smartproxy account without the dashboard. Dig into the specifics and find out how to use the API – read our documentation. Simply enter your parameters in the form fields to authenticate, list endpoints, get traffic usage reports, create or delete subusers and more. The documentation and samples are currently available for cURL, Python, JavaScript, Ruby, and Node, but we will be adding more languages in the future.

What is a proxy API?



new Smartproxy 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.
