BuyProxies.org Review

BuyProxies BuyProxies.org Review

BuyProxies.org is a very cool newer private proxy provider that caters to the IM crowd, and those of us with our automation toys in particular.

What makes them unique is that they’re funny as shit and have absolutely NO restrictions on the use of their proxies.   Nope – not a typo.  No restrictions.   Buy your monthly private proxies, dedicated or semi-dedicated and then have at it.

Appears they got their start on Fiverr and have been just killing it there and so have now set up a site where you can have your account, place your orders, submit service tickets, and become an affiliate (naturally).    You can place orders for as little as 5 Dedicated Proxies per month or even 5 Semi-Dedicated Proxies, starting at just $5/month.  The semi-dedicated accounts are shared by no more than 3 people.

All proxies are HTTP proxies and you can request U.S., Europe, etc.   The accounts come with private proxies on multiple subnets and that # depends on the package that you purchase.  Proxies are run off of their servers – not sub’d out, and these guys have earned a rep for having lighting fast proxies!  I did purchase a package to test and they are, indeed great proxies.   Tested with my private proxies from Squid, they all ended up about in the middle of the pack with response time from 900ms-2650ms.  BuyProxies.org are definitely worth checking out, particularly if you are hampered by the TOS restrictions of most of the other proxy providers.   After you give them a whirl, don’t forget to come back here and share your review.

Proxy Pimp Review

proxypimp Proxy Pimp Review

Proxy-Pimp.com is great new(er) provider of fully anonymous private proxies that can be used for a variety of functions – Including Scrapebox Proxies.  They boast a lightning fast approval and activation system that gets you up and running quickly (no one likes waiting) and they provide 24/7 customer support.

ALL proxies from Proxypimp come with unmetered bandwidth – no restrictions and you do not need to do anything to configure your proxies to be ready to go.   Proxies are 100% anonymous, multiple cities, mult subnets, and are offered through the following datacenters:  New York, Seattle, Frankfurt and coming soon in Chicago and the UK.    These are HTTP/HTTPS proxies with a 99.9% uptime guarantee with packages starting at 1 Proxy to over 100 proxies per month.  Obviously, the more you order, the cheaper each proxy is going to be.

So, we’ve hit all the high points and these guys are getting some good business and attention so far.  But, what can’t you do with ProxyPimp and what are the limitations?     Well, there are a few – No Paypal, STMP or Webmailing,  and Xrumer.  Also, there is not the ability to switch IPs monthly as some other services have.  Finally, the payment set-ups aren’t subscription based.  Meaning, you will receive a reminder before your proxies expire for the month and, if you don’t renew them with a new payment, they’ll be deleted from your account.  If you wanted new IPs, you could allow your proxies to expire and just place a new order monthly.

As for what you CAN do with the proxies, there is plenty and the service does have a lot of value.  If you had given ProxyPimp a look before and saw their restriction on Scrapebox Posting, look again now – it’s been lifted.   You may use their proxies with Scrapebox for Scraping and Posting now (good deal!).  You can use these with YouTube, Facebook and most any Application or browser (aside from the software already mentioned).  You CAN use these for Craigslist posting.

The payment forms accepted are numerous (listed above), so it’s unlikely you’d be unable to find a way to pay these guys.  Finally, they do and they don’t offer a money back guarantee.  They state that there are no refunds on service, HOWEVER – if you sign up and find that the proxies are “unusable” for your purposes within the first 3 days, they will give you your money back.

CheapPrivateProxy Review

CheapPrivateProxy CheapPrivateProxy Review

CheapPrivateProxy is a proxy service that specializes in only http private proxy subscriptions.  Proxies are 100% anonymous proxies, secure and fast, set up on dedicated servers.

I tried out the service for 30 days, with 10 Private proxies.  The back office set up is similar to most wherein you lock you assigned IPs to your home IP, and you are allowed up to 3 IPs per order to use for locking.  The IPs that I was given were all in the same city, Chicago, but were spread out on 3 subnets.  For the most part, they worked fine but I did manage to get several of them blocked when I used them in Scrapebox for linkchecking.

As far as what you are able to use CheapPrivateProxy IPs for, some things are clear and others aren’t.  Social networking, browsing, and webmail (Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, AOL) are ok but there are daily limits on webmailing.  Online classifieds (CL) posting is ok as well.  Based on the language in the terms, you clearly cannot use these with Xrumer even though it doesn’t say that specifically.  Finally, it appears that you can use these with Scrapebox but they don’t say so either way.  In fact, I came upon this provider through a mention in a forum about Scrapebox proxies.

As far as pricing goes, they obviously get cheaper the larger the package you purchase.  You can start with 1 proxy for $9.95, 10 for $19.95, and 100 is a great deal at $160/month.  While the home page states that the proxies have “unlimited bandwidth”, this is only true on packages of 50 proxies and up.  Smaller than that have bandwidth limits on them.

Activation is instant.  There is nothing in the support section, back office or home page that shows me that I can switch out my proxies at any interval, monthly or otherwise so I’m not sure about that.  Also the support knowledgebase is still a bit sparse and several of the articles are going to 404 pages.   There are cost benefits here and the proxies do work for many purposes.  If you check out CheapPrivateProxy and have some feedback, be sure to come back and share!
