Domain:port vs IP:port format

Domain:port

While using Smartproxy you will connect to specific proxy pools by using domain:port format(e.g.us.smartproxy.com:10000) and authentication.

domain port format explained

That means that to connect to a specific proxy pool you need to decide on:

Set authentication methods in dashboard ‘Proxy user’ or ‘Whitelist’ tabs and filter right proxy in ‘Proxy server’ tab.

IP:Port format

Our server’s IP may change at any time. We do not recommend using IP:Port format unless it’s absolutely necessary (e.g. if your application does not accept the default endpoint:port format). Find instructions here.
