The most popular types of proxies

You-Proxy You-Proxy

An ordinary user, hearing about a proxy, thinks about anonymity on the Web. However, this is far from their only task. There are several types of such servers, and they are used for different tasks.


Proxy types

Servers are divided according to the limited access to them. The fewer people can use the protocol, the higher the speed and reliability of the connection. Therefore, it is very important for many users to connect to a "private" proxy. Such private servers are offered by Proxy-Seller, you can read the terms of the offers on their website. "Private" proxies are provided for use by one client. True, they can be considered truly private only if they are installed on equipment, access to which is only available to a specific person.

Be that as it may, private proxies are the most in demand today.

Cascading servers (BackConnect) are used less often simply because not everyone needs the ability to bypass firewalls and other site security mechanisms.

Public servers are used less frequently. Their main advantage is their affordable price, and many of these proxies are completely free of charge. Everyone understands that in terms of security they are significantly inferior to "private" protocols, and you can forget about good speed.

But is it true that a public server is enough to solve your tasks, you don't have to think about buying a private one?

Purpose of private proxies

It is quite easy to explain such a high demand for private proxies - they always work stably and provide more reliable protection, thanks to the binding of the server to the client's IP address. These are the protocols that have become the standard in the SMM segment. For example, private proxies are perfect for solving such problems:

  • circumvention of restrictions when visiting sites or viewing certain content;
  • promotion in social networks;
  • placement of advertisements on international trading platforms;
  • various SEO activities (web-scraping the semantic core, etc.);
  • traffic arbitrage;
  • botting in multiplayer online games;
  • rates, etc.

Private proxies are needed not only for webmasters and other IT professionals. Often, they are also used by ordinary people who simply use the Internet for educational or entertainment purposes. The cost of "private" servers has not been so high for a long time, Internet security is still important.
