What Is Smartproxy?

Smartproxy is a rotating residential proxy network. It enables users to gather any data from the web using a pool of over 40 million proxies. That’s not all: Smartproxy has shared datacenter (DC) proxies too!

Our residential and datacenter proxies work like semi-dedicated proxy networks. For instance, you can use the same IP address for up to 30 minutes with a sticky session. Also, they are cheap like shared proxies but at the same time high-performing because only a few clients can use the same proxy at any time.

  • Only real device IPs. All proxies in our residential pool come from real desktop and mobile devices. They do not share any subnetwork and are extremely hard to block.
  • Shared private proxies. Our proxies are not public. Only paying clients have access to our IP addresses.
  • Unlimited IPs. We are the only major shared proxy provider that allows you to use the whole proxy pool at any price level. You can use an unlimited number of IPs, connections, threads, and countries at once. Our pricing model is based only on traffic usage.
