Best Online Customer Support I've Gotten
Customer Support is amazing, agent walked me through an issue I've been dealing since I paid for them. I was this close to asking for refund and cancelling my plan before the agent gave me the best walk through and now I think I'm confident in their system.
We almost forgot we're using proxy
Many regions/configurations available. Convenient API. Very reliable -- issues happen, but knowing the nature of the product it's really good overall. Superb support and fair prices. Clean UI.
Perfect service and reliable service
I was in need of a proxy to pass some hard country IP location check and Smartproxy got a very nice onboarding experience, sleek payment process and offer pay as you go option. The browser extension worked perfectly and for sure the customer support is super proactive.
Well designed interface, flexible API, responsive support
The API is flexible, logical and easy to set up, fail rate is pretty much zero, so they're correct to claim that, and the speed at which I can scrape is very impressive - there are no limits on requests per minute, so no complaints there either.
Frequently asked questions about residential proxies
What is a residential proxy?
A residential proxy is an intermediary that uses an IP address provided by an ISP (Internet Service Provider). Residential proxies come from actual household desktop and mobile devices, so they are extremely difficult to detect. Learn more about residential proxies in our blog post.
Are residential proxies legal?
Residential proxies are perfectly legal to use for a variety of purposes. However, some websites or particular types of data may be illegal to scrape, so make sure not to abuse your proxies and be conscious of the existing restrictions (legal or other. We also recommend considering whether you’re going to need advanced rotation or sticky sessions.
What are residential proxies used for?
You can use our residential proxies with almost any application that supports HTTP/HTTPS proxies. Smartproxy residential-level IP addresses work great with all search engines, ScrapeBox, and many other bots.
How do residential proxies work?
Residential proxies workflow:
1. Your internet traffic is directed through an intermediary server.
2. This server assigns a different IP address to your connection request.
3. As a result, your IP address is concealed, and you appear to be a regular user with a different IP address.
What is advanced proxy rotation?
Advanced proxy rotation is a technique that proxy servers use to switch up IP addresses regularly. That way, websites can't figure out you're using a proxy and won't be able to block you. Using Smartproxy IPs, you can choose between rotating sessions that change IP with each action and sticky ones that keep the same IP for up to 30 minutes.
What is a backconnect proxy?
A backconnect proxy is a type of proxy server that gives you a new IP address every time you connect. That means you can use a lot of different IPs without any hassle of manually changing the proxy settings. Learn more about proxies on our quick start guide.
How to use residential proxies?
Just sign up with a residential proxy provider like Smartproxy and get access to the pool of 55M+ residential IP addresses. Then, add residential proxies to your script or a code by entering the proxy's IP address and port number. Voilà! Your internet traffic will be rerouted through the residential proxy, making you look like a regular user from that location. Learn more about proxies on our quick start guide.
How do we source residential IPs?
Together with the Internet Infrastructure Coalition (i2Coalition), we have launched the Ethical Web Data Collection Initiative (EWDCI). This industry-led consortium will strengthen public trust, promote ethical guidelines and help businesses make informed data collection choices.
Can I get SOCKS5 residential proxies?
Yes, you can! Our residential proxies fully support the SOCKS5 protocol. When you get a residential proxy plan on Smartproxy, you can choose between the HTTP(s) or SOCKS5 protocol. Learn more about SOCKS5.
What to consider before buying residential proxies?
The most important things to consider before actually buying residential proxies from any provider:
1. Look into how much traffic, proxy pool size, and proxy speeds you’re going to need
2. Check the geo-locations on offer
3. Compare the pricing
4. Learn about customer support in case you run into any trouble
5. Consider whether you’re going to need sticky proxies or advanced rotation
By the way, don’t get seduced by free proxies – they entail cybersecurity risks and have low performance. Look for cheap residential proxies from reliable providers.
Can I integrate proxies with 3rd party software, bots, and automation tools?
You can integrate Smartproxy proxies with all major automation bots. If your software runs on a dedicated server or your local machine, simply add the machine’s IP to your list of whitelisted IPs. Find integrations on our site.
How to set up and use Smartproxy residential proxies?
Can I track my proxy usage?
Yes, you can. Once you have a subscription plan in the dashboard, go to the Sub-users tab and create a sub-user. You will be able to set limits, dedicate traffic for different tasks, locations, etc., for every sub-user.
How can I get free residential proxies?
Free proxies aren’t safe – there’s no guarantee that your data will not be shared with third parties. However, we have a limited-time offer for residential proxies, starting from as little as $4/GB*. We guarantee your privacy, and if you’re not satisfied with our product, you can get a refund during the first three days of using our proxies.
How do residential proxies differ from datacenter ones?
Residential proxies are true mobile or desktop devices that act as your intermediary servers. They have all aspects of real internet users, such as ISP attribution, no subnetworks, or other tell-tale signs of a proxy network. Thus, you can scale any operation almost indefinitely, especially when you can access millions of these nodes.
What’s more – on Smartproxy’s residential proxy network, you are allowed to send unlimited concurrent (simultaneous) connection requests. That means your scraper can access all the pages you need in no time. Advanced rotation is what makes our proxies unbeatable.
And if that wasn’t enough, with us, you will no longer need to import any proxy lists – all you need is a single endpoint.
How can I sell my IP?
You can choose to use an auction or marketplace for that – there are plenty of them out there that are willing to pay you for your IP address (e.g. IPv4.Global, Prefix Broker, Hilco Streambank, etc.). You can also sell it directly to a business of your choice.
How was the speed and success rate of residential proxies tested?
The average residential proxies' response time and success rate provided on our website are based on Proxyway's research. Proxyway is an independent educational platform dedicated to the research and testing of proxy providers and services
