Http Proxy Service
If you are looking for a http proxy service then there are a few things that you should keep in mind. Searching for proxy service providers on the internet is easy and you’ll find probably hundreds of websites offering different kinds of proxies all at different prices. The best thing you should do is to check out an offer thoroughly before signing up. This will go a long way to help you avoid some common proxy problems people have when looking for service providers.
Are the proxies that they rent out 100% anonymous? Anonymous here means that the IP can’t be detected as coming from a proxy server. Many web based proxies are anonymous in terms of that your home computer IP is not exposed while using them but the IP of the web based proxy is detected as coming from a proxy server. This kind of anonymity is second rate and you really want complete and total anonymity where your proxy IP looks like a normal home computer IP. The other thing you should ask is for an IP to test. You should ping the IP to see what kind of lag or response time you get; the lower the better. This will help avoid renting IPs from someone that have such a high latency that using them to surf the internet with is unbearable.
The final thing you should do is seriously consider setting up your own http proxy server. This is ideal for anyone who wants more than one or two IPs and wants complete and total control over their proxy. The advantage of taking the path of setting up your own server is that you don’t have to worry about speed problems and you will pay considerably much less than you would if you rented them from a service provider. I’d strongly recommend anyone looking for a http proxy service to seriously consider going the DIY path if you want multiple IPs and want to save money in the long run.
