Residential Proxies Bargains

There are multitudes of reasons to use residential proxies. Just like there are a lot of use cases, there are also several different kinds of residential proxies to fill those needs. Figuring out what you need can be confusing enough, so here are some residential proxies bargains to save you time and money.

Some of the aspects to consider when deciding which residential proxy you need are:

  • The type of proxy server: forward connect, back connect, and reverse.
  • Sharing model: dedicated IPs, private IPs, or shared IPs.
  • The session style: static session, rotating sessions, or sticky sessions.
  • Unlimited vs metered: will your project require unlimited bandwidth or simultaneous connections? Or will a metered plan suffice?
  • The IP’s geo-locations: does your project need a specific region, and do subsequent requests need to be from the same region?
  • Speed: if your project is time-sensitive, such as when copping sneakers or playing a video game, every millisecond counts!
  • Protocol type: HTTP, HTTPS, or SOCKS. This impacts security and speed, as well as potentially restricting which sites you can access.

Once you know what you’re looking for, it’s time to decide which service to use. With how many proxy service providers there are on the market, this could be a daunting task.
