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.

YourPrivateProxy Review

YourPrivateProxy YourPrivateProxy Review

YourPrivateProxy.com offers a simplified subscription service of Dedicated Private Proxies.  If you are purchasing a package of multiple proxies, they will be located in multiple cities and on multiple subnets.  With a new account, you will be given a VIP user control panel.  You will be able to randomize and change your proxies, including their locations, with this control panel once per month.

Private Proxy packages start at $9.97/month for 1 IP.  A great thing about YourPrivateProxy is that there are no bandwidth limitations with the proxies and no additional configuration required from you after purchase.  They are simply ready to be used.  As for WHERE they can be used, the options are pretty good as well.  Scrapebox is definitely OK.  Xrumer is NOT.   The proxies from this provider are good to be used on “Phone Verified” Craigslist accounts, ebay, Reddit and other social sites.  They are not ok to be used for Mailing campaigns.

As for the review, yourprivateproxy.com gets top marks from many Scrapebox users for the quality and speed of their private proxies.  The feature that allows for monthly randomization and the lack of bandwidth constraints is also very popular.  If you’re looking for the cheapest private proxies, these aren’t it.  However, if you’re looking for quality and speed to get the optimum results with your software, YPP is where a lot of people end up.   Service has never been an issue with yourprivateproxy to date, however, if you are looking for Xrumer proxies you’ll have to skip this one.

The private proxies from AnonymousProxies start at $2.50/each but are quickly discounted on a sliding scale from 5%-30% based on volume of proxies purchased.   Proxies with this proxy service have only a few restrictions on use – no spam, illegal use, and they are blocked from use with Torrents, Gmail Account Creation/Access, Xrumer and Paypal.com.  There are no provisions specifically restricting their use with Scrapebox.  VPNs start at $5.00/each per month but also are discounted per a sliding scale from 5%-30$ based on volume.  VPNs are restricted from use with Torrents only.

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.

Stealth Proxy Review

StealthProxy Stealth Proxy Review

Stealth Proxy offers a fantastic proxy service for those looking for Xrumer Proxies and proxies for uses that are restricted in so many of the other services.  With over 10 years in the business, they have a great rep in many of the forums and put out updated lists of over 2,000,000 unique IP’s each day.  Their database is updated 2-4 times daily.

These are shared resources among the other subscribers but you’ll find up to 50% working at any given time and are given a multitude of free tools to work with as a member.  Stealth Proxy also provides all of the proxy lists of their competitors, so it makes choosing a bit easier.   Proxies are from around the world, but a large percentage are U.S. and European.

Stealth Proxy has a free downloads section for subscribers to pull proxy checking software as well as proxy use tools for Socks proxies.  Proxies are delivered in standard format for easily dropping into programs like Scrapebox, Xrumer and Scrapeboard.  They are available for support via live chat and email.

If you’re looking for a proxy service that has little restrictions, this is your ticket.  They do have an End User Agreement (it’s not anarchy over there).  No illegal stuff, spamming, terrorism, you get the picture…

Proxybonanza Review

ProxyBonanza Proxybonanza Review

Proxybonanza.com provides anonymous Socks5 and http protocol proxy lists via subscription basis.  You can either sign up for Shared Proxy IPs, where private proxies are shared amongst several customers or Dedicated Private Proxies where you have your own IPs.  Share IP plans start at $5.99/month for 8 IPs in 2 different C Classes, with 3 gb bandwidth.  Exclusive, or Dedicated, Proxies start at $9.99/month for 1 Dedicated IP with 10 gb bandwidth.

There are also International Proxies, which are all Shared.  Plans start at $6.99/month for 1 IP and 3 gb bandwidth.  Proxybonanza also has special discounts and will do custom packages upon request.   Account set up is instant so you can get started right away upon sign up.  The proxy lists from proxybonanza can potentially be used for Facebook, YouTube and Craigslist but there are no guarantees on this.  They only switch out the proxies every several months.  As of March 2010, Proxybonanza proxy service does NOT allow use of their proxies with Scrapebox or Xrumer.  Interestingly, a lot of people reach this site looking for a “Proxybonanza Review”, but few if any ever sign up with them.  I think it has a bit to do with the “Scrapebox thing”.    That, and you can find proxies without bandwidth limitations, cheaper elsewhere.

Proxybonanza has developed and released a Firefox add-on for proxy list management that allows subscribers to change/disable proxies with 1-click, import/export proxy lists and do auto-logins for proxy authentication, which is cool.  Finally, proxybonanza’s proxies are known for being high quality and very fast.  They are also very good about issuing a refund for unused bandwidth if requested.  The main downside here is the inability to use them for Scrapebox.

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!

LimeProxies Review

LimeProxies LimeProxies Review

LimeProxies provides private proxies for use with many social media sites and software applications.   They offer Private shared Proxies, Private Dedicated Proxies and International Proxies.  LimeProxies are not Socks5 proxies but are on multiple subnets and multiple geographic locations – 14+ locations.

Shared Proxies start in packs of 50 proxies, Covering 2 Cities, Multiple Subnets and IP Classes, at $60/month.  Private Dedicated Proxies start in Packs of 15 proxies, Covering 4 Cities, Multiple Subnets and IP Classes, at $49.97/month – or $30/month if paid by the quarter.  Limproxies proxy service offers a free IP replacement guarantee and guarantees speeds of 100 mbps.

Sites that are permitted for use with LimeProxies include: Facebook, Google, BBC, Craigslist and other Web 2.0 sites.  Scrapebox and Xrumer use are strictly prohibited, as is mass mailing campaigns.    Customers of LimeProxies are quite satisfied for the most part with speed and service and one of the sales points is that they only provide fresh “new” proxies to their customers.  There isn’t, however, a clause about being able to turnover and refresh your proxies monthly so, likely that would only come into play if you were to have one banned and then could get a replacement under their guarantee.
