What will happen with my unused GB (traffic)?

  • In case you don’t change your subscription plan all unused GB (traffic) will be reset to 0GB every month (at the beginning of the new billing cycle).
  • If you upgrade your plan your GB will be transferred.
  • If you downgrade your plan your GB will be reset to 0GB.
  • If you cancel your subscription and do not renew your subscription your GB will be lost after the period ends.

  • Can I transfer my unused GB to the next billing cycle?

    You can transfer unused traffic to the next subscription period when you upgrade to a new plan. You must upgrade your plan before your current subscription period ends. This also works when your cancelled subscription is still active. See the examples below for more info.

    Example:

    Lets say your subscription is active until May 1. Even if you cancel your subscription, your remaining traffic is yours to keep until May 1.

    If you want to transfer unused GBs to the next subscription period: upgrade to a new plan before May 1 – unused GB will be added to the new plan. This works even if you have canceled your current subscription and order a new plan before May 1 – all unused GB will still be added to the new plan.

    If you cancel your subscription and do not renew your subscription before May 1, your GB will be lost after the period ends.

    Authorization process and IP whitelisting

    Smartproxy residential proxies can be accessed via two different types of authorization:

    1. standard username:password authentication

    2. using IP-based whitelisting feature in the dashboard. IP whitelisting allows you to create lists of trusted IP addresses that won’t require user:pass authorization.

    Can I integrate Smartproxy residential proxies with a 3rd party software?

    Of course, you can. Smartproxy proxies can be configured with all major automation bots. If your software runs on a dedicated server or on your local machine, simply add the machine IP to your whitelisted IP list. Find all integration guides HERE.

    Can I create subusers?

    Sure you can! Once you have a subscription plan in the dashboard, go to subusers tab and create subuser. Set limits, follow up traffic dedicated for different tasks, locations or similar.

    How Does Endpoint Filtering Work? Which Ports Do I Need to Use?

    Using smartproxy is fairly simple – in the dashboard you will be able to select which port you want: rotating or sticky (currently provides IP up to 10min) and whether you want a random IP (any country) or target specific country/city. System will generate relevant endpoint in domain:port format.

    See example below with random rotating port specified (in the example whitelisted IP is used instead of standard username:password authorization)

    how to use smartproxy endpoints

  • If you choose ‘Curl test example’



    Once you select the parameters, you will get the shell example – endpoint and port example information that fits your needs.



  • endpoint filtering
    1. Authentication option:

    • WHITELISTED IP – If you choose this authorization method, you won’t need to use your credentials – whitelisted IP addresses do not require the user:pass authorization. Whitelist several IPs to create a list of trusted IPs. You can whitelist your IP in the Whitelisted IPs tab on the left.
    • USER:PASS – If you choose this authorization method you can insert your credentials in the username and password fields in the ”Ports” section below to get the full shell example. Authenticate with your dashboard login or subuser credentials. Use subusers to track traffic usage of different tasks or locations.
    2. Choose parameters:



    Proxy location:

    1. RANDOM – use a random IP from the whole pool.
    2. SPECIFIC LOCATION – use IPs only from a specific location. You can target IP addresses at the country or city level.

    Session type:

    1. ROTATING – assigns a new IP for each request.
    2. STICKY – assigns an IP for a longer period (default session time – 10 min). The session will be terminated:
      – after 60s of inactivity;
      – if the IP address does not respond.
      If your session is terminated, you will receive a new sticky IP with the same rules applied.

    3. Enter Your target


  • If you choose to ‘Filter endpoints’


    Filter endpoints and ports that fits your needs.


  • endpoint filtering


    NOTE:

    • ENDPOINT – this is the address you must use to connect to the selected proxy pool.
    • PORT – add the port number to your endpoint to connect to the proxy server.
    • PORT RANGE – use any port(s) in this range to connect to the endpoint.

    Can I select a proxies from a specific location?

    Residential proxies can be accessed through country-specific or city-specific ports by using your login credentials (username and password) or via whitelisted IPs.

    You can also access your proxies through a single backconnect endpoint: gate.smartproxy.com:7000. In this case, you need to pass the country/city parameter alongside your username and password.
