Choosing a proxy type
Choosing the perfect IP-masking solution for your Multilogin profiles requires knowledge of various proxy types. This guide provides a brief overview of the main proxy categories and their defining features, enabling you to make informed choices.
HTTP(S) vs SOCKS
HTTP proxies cache web pages to enhance loading speed and filter web traffic. In contrast, HTTPS proxies leverage SSL security protocol to safeguard data. These proxies can manage both HTTP and HTTPS traffic, encrypting all data between the client and proxy server. SOCKS proxies, on the other hand, can handle all TCP connection-based traffic, not just HTTP data.
Static vs Rotating
Static proxies allow you to operate with the same IP for as long as required, while rotating proxies give access to a pool of different IP addresses depending on the settings.
Residential vs Mobile vs Datacenter
Residential proxies use genuine IP addresses owned by ISPs, which are associated with physical locations, providing a greater degree of authenticity.
Mobile proxies are gateways that mask their real addresses by assigning a mobile IP address to a device.
Datacenter proxies link to bulk data centers and cloud hosting facilities instead of typical ISPs, providing swift and effective web-scraping capabilities.
