What is a backconnect proxy?

A backconnect proxy is a single node that routes your connection to a residential proxy pool. It allows you to connect to the proxy network countless times, automatically rotates proxies with each request you make, or lets you keep the same IP address for up to 30 minutes with a sticky session.

In essence, a backconnect node greatly expands the average capability of IP:port type proxies. It allows you to automate tasks and make many connections in a short amount of time. It also increases the security of your IP address and ensures anonymity. Pssst, these proxies are available with geo-targeting in a particular country or city. What not to love about them?

How does it work?

A backconnect technology will overcome IP blocks or rate limits by sending your request through a single node to the proxy pool and only then - to the target website. It assigns a new IP address for each connection request or a sticky IP for 1 minute and up to 10 or even 30 minutes with a session ID parameter. 

Your requested data will return via the same proxy, so your every connection will look unique. What's more? With Smartproxy, you get unlimited bandwidth for this.

If you consider whether to buy datacenter or residential proxies, be warned that IPs from data centers can be banned in bulk since they share the same subnet.

When do you need a backconnect proxy?

You should buy backconnect proxies if you need to make many connection requests. Think data scraping en masse. This proxy type gives you an incredible advantage when solving IP blocking or rate-limiting issues. It'll let you use the whole IP pool through a single connection point, which means you don't need to create a separate proxy list manually.

Use a location targeting backconnect proxy to scrape local data. For example, if you want to scrape Amazon's prices in the US, use a US backconnect proxy.

Pros and cons of a backonnect proxy


Increases your anonymity

Residential IPs are private IP addresses, meaning that your requests will be routed through real desktop and mobile devices when accessing the web.

Saves your time

Backconnect proxy is a great time-saving solution. It automatically rotates IPs, allowing you to make a greater number of requests per minute. Besides, this proxy rotation will provide better connection and security.

Ensures your security

Since the backconnect proxy stands between you and the website's server, it increases your IP address security. This is especially important when you scrape the web because there's always a risk of being targeted with malicious content. In case your IP address is infiltrated successfully, in some cases, you can even say goodbye to your web scraping career.

Eliminates limits on requests

Websites use rate-limiting to control how many requests one user can make. The website will ban an IP address or a proxy if it exceeds this limit. With our backconnect proxy, you don't have to worry about rate limits because you get unlimited bandwidth! A different residential proxy will take each request, so there's almost no way of being banned on any website.


Use residential proxies and be 100% safe!

Since backconnect proxies offer better anonymity, security, and no rate limits, many providers ask you to pay extra for them. However, we are a premium backconnect proxy provider that doesn't charge more for these benefits. You can start to use our proxy network for as little as $75/month + VAT. You get unlimited bandwidth - our pricing plans are based on traffic usage. Enterprise-level plans go as low as $4/GB of data.

Use residential proxies and be 100% safe!

Sometimes your request delivery time can lag. It may happen when your target website server is far from your backconnect proxy server. For instance, your target website is in France, and you use a backconnect proxy from Canada. This means that your request has to go all the way from France to Canada and from Canada - back to France.

Fortunately, this is an easily fixable issue. For the best user experience, choose your backconnect proxy that is close to your target site's location. Smartproxy allows you to choose IPs from 195 locations worldwide. And voila - the problem is fixed!

Pros and cons of a backconnect proxy

Backconnect proxies vs. rotating proxies

If you're new in the proxy world, you can feel a bit confused when it comes to different proxy types. For instance: are backconnect and rotating proxies the same thing?

These proxies are basically the same thing as they rotate after a certain time. For instance, we offer automatic rotation after every request. Or, you can choose to keep the same IP address for 1 minute and up to 10 or even 30 minutes in case of sticky sessions.

How Smartproxy reverse proxy works

Backconnect proxies vs. reverse proxies

A reverse proxy is a gateway to a server or group of servers and can cache or decrypt data, perform authentication tasks.

These proxies are known to offer anonymity for the back-end servers, not clients. In a nutshell, it's a must-have for your business if you have millions of users entering your website daily. All this traffic will have to pass through a reverse proxy and only then access servers. In this way, servers won't overload.
