What Are Sticky and Rotating Sessions?

With our proxies, you can choose between two kinds of sessions:

Rotating IP sessions. IPs change with each new request. For instance, you open a website with one IP; but when you do any further action, such as reload the website or open a link, your IP will have already changed.

Sticky IP sessions – they keep the same IP for a longer period of time: up to 10 mins for residential IPs and 30 mins for datacenter IPs. The countdown starts with the first request sent. A session gets terminated if no response is received from an IP address or if there’s no activity for 60s for that session. Once a session gets terminated – you will receive a new sticky IP and same rules apply again.
