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.

There are both Shared (they call it “Virtual”) and Dedicated Proxies available here, starting at $30/month for 5 shared U.S. proxies or $50/month for 5 Dedicated U.S. Proxies.   There are no bandwidth caps on the Dedicated proxies but the Shared proxies are capped at 6GB/proxy per month.

RapidSocks Review

RapidSocks RapidSocks Review

RapidSocks is Cool for Xrumer! Hard to come by so thought we’d toss that out there first thing.  These are Socks4 and Socks5 IPs that rotate every 10 minutes.  Each Socks proxy can support up to 10 simultaneous connections and average speeds are 512 kbit/s.

Countries to choose from include: USA, CA, GB, FR, AU, DE. You can also opt to have just U.S. proxies.   They also offer a 24 test list of Socks proxies.  The private proxies also work with any PHP scripts with cURL and all popular browsers.

Rates are not cheap for these proxies, and are even more expensive if you want all U.S. Proxies.  You do have the option to pay by the day or week, however, if you just want to do some “blasts” so that may be worth taking a look at.  Proxy service monthly price for 50 proxies at a time is $250, if you want all U.S. Proxies $300.  Daily Price for something like this would be $15 and $20 respectively.

Dank Proxies Review

DankProxies Dank Proxies Review

Dank Proxies provides subscription-based lists of both Shared and Dedicated Private Proxies.  Proxies are listed as “fully anonymous” and on “multiple datacenters” but there are no specifics as to how many datacenters they actually have.  If you hit the “Check Status” button on their homepage, it appears that they have 3 Datacenters.  The actual server status, however, never shows up.

Shared Private Proxies start in packs of 25 proxies, multiple cities, multiple subnets, at $29/month.  Dedicated Private Proxies start with 1 Proxy at $9/month and 5 Proxies at $19/month.   Clients are given a proxy changer tool software program that allows them to change their IP with the click of a button if using the proxies for web browsing purposes.  Bandwidth usage is listed as “fair use”, which again is vague.   IPs are not replaced monthly or at all.  If this is desired, a special license can be requested.

The TOS page for the site is non-functional (404) but Dank Proxies states that their proxies can be used for Craigslist and “scraping”.  There are no specific exclusions for Scrapebox or Xrumer on their site.  There are, however, numerous service and quality complaints about Dank Proxies on many forums from former unhappy customers.  If you decide to give this proxy service a shot, consider it just that – a trial run.  Let us know how it goes.

EZ Proxies Review

ezproxies EZ Proxies Review

EZProxies.com is a newer provider of both shared and private proxies that are able to be used for Scrapebox, among many other popular IM and anonymous surfing applications.  The proxies here are HTTP/HTTPS and are available from multiple cities in the U.S., but does not list how many or what those cities are.  There are also International Proxies available from European cities but, again, not sure which ones or how many.  Appears this is a service that they are still developing.

The proxies from EZ Proxies are affordable, however.   The Shared Proxies start in packages of 50 proxies as the lowest number at $50/month and the cost per proxy goes down as you order larger packages.  The Private proxies start in packages of 10 private proxies for $25/month and, again, the cost per proxy will go down significantly as you order larger packages – as low as $1.00/ per private proxy.

Proxies are locked to your IP address via a control panel as is common with most proxy sellers now.   The proxies from EZ Proxies are ok to be used for Scrapebox and most other IM programs, as well as social sites such as Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter.  You can email with these proxies only through sites such as gmail, yahoo and hotmail, but not through an SMTP-based port.  EZ Proxies takes all major credit cards as well as Paypal and activates accounts within 12 hours of sign up, but usually much quicker.

Others have found these to be a very good choice for Scrapebox proxies and they even have an attractive discount code that gets you a significant discount starting out.  Unfortunately, I have not and have had to come in here and revise my initial review.  I gave these guys a shot and they blew it on so many fronts I don’t know where to start.  I placed a new order for 10 private proxies around 9 am in the morning and didn’t get proxies delivered until about 12 hours later.  I know what the terms say, but jeez – when most people order proxies, they’re looking to use them in the near future.  When I placed the order, I was very specific about needing to use the proxies for Twitter.  Upon setting up my 10 proxies, it took not 5 minutes but about 50 for them to lock to my IP address and become usable.  Then, only 8 of the 10 were live proxies – 2 dead out of the gate.   Finally, of the 8 Live proxies I was given, not 1 single one of them would allow me to connect to Twitter.com.   I have no idea what else these proxies are good for but they’re worth about a shit sandwich for me.

So, that’s my experience with EZ Proxies.  Appears that these guys work about 1-2 hours a day and that would be in the evening U.S. time.   I have no idea whether or not I’ll get my money back from these guys but it was actually almost worth the lost investment to get a solid warning out there.   Now, I may be wrong (it happens a lot) – So, if you are an ecstatic customer of EZ Proxies (not the owner, owner’s girlfriend or other interested party…don’t even try it), please hit the comment button and give us a review and, in time, these guys can perhaps redeem themselves.    Not looking good right now, though.   As I am a marketer, I’ll always give you a link to check them out anyway (below).

The Concept of Private Proxies

For an individual to understand fully what private proxies are, it is essential to talk about the faultfinding component of the computer networking capacity commonly known as the IP. Any people have heard about it but they do not know what it really entails.

Whenever a person connects to a web and goes to a website, he or she opens up the computer system to several internet hackers around the globe. This is an undisputed fact because each time an individual enters the site’s web address, it immediately sends signal from the computer being used in a form of an IP address. Every personal computer has its own IP address. This IP looks like a serial number. The IP of the computer must be sent out for the web that is being accessed to send back the required information. Therefore, it is used to link the user to different websites in order to access information being searched for in the net.

Because of IP address, internet hackers and scammers can successfully trace the user’s personal computer and by chance accessing it without a permission and knowledge of the user. For instance, chances are some of personal information can be hacked such as financial information. Nobody will wish or like these incidents to happen to them. In this regard, private proxies sound all right!

This is how private proxies sound sensible. A web proxy is in a way of an intermediary that conceals the IP address in the internet players’ remaining portion. Therefore, when a person visits a website, before the PC the person is using sends out an application for the access to the website, the IP address is initially sent to the proxy server this application to the deserved Website. Consequently, the website gives the requested information back through the proxy then for the user. By this, users are protecting their PCs from any kind of internet threat created by scammers and hackers.

There are two types of proxy. They include the free proxies and the private proxies. Free proxies are highly inconsistent and several people depend on them. There are extremely slow and system downtime is a common thing in them. On the other hand, private proxies are much quicker, almost none if not none system downtime and very accurate.

Apart from the protection that private proxies offer against online scammers and hackers, they also allow the user to access websites, which are actually not accessible in some of their local areas. This is good especially when the users’ network is mostly restricted by their network providers or source. This is because there are some sites that exist in different geographical locations which users are not supposed or allowed to access.

Several private proxy providers are available widely on the internet. Some of these proxy providers have big names such as squidproxies.com and myprivateproxy. More and more options for the best private proxies are all over the internet. However, it is advisable to be very careful when selecting an exclusive private proxy provider since private proxies are always bought.

tafbutton blue16 The Concept of Private Proxies

A proxy service is service that makes someone anonymous while surfing the internet online. The service allows browsing the internet when hiding one’s information that websites can use to identify the person. It’s a strategy that allows browsers to hide their identity from the websites they are visiting..A server that uses a proxy can help users to surf anonymously on the web

A proxy service provides anonymous web surfing by disabling popup windows and cookies and hides the users IP address. They service normally uses a proxy server for processing each HTTP request. When a person requests for information from a particular site by typing a URL or clicking on a hyperlink, the service retrieves the information and displays it using their own server. The requested web page or the remote server gets information of the anonymous web surfing service instead of getting the user’s information. Websites being visited often gathers information like the type of OS the user is using and the type of browsing program that the user is using. Using anonymous services will help in hiding the details from the websites. The service works by putting a barrier between a user and the site they are visiting. Users who are monitored by their organization on their surfing ways often use this service to hide their details.

Proxy services are commonly used to hide the users information to enhance privacy or to help a user bypass a blocking application that would not allow access to a web page or part of it. The service can make a person feel more secure when surfing and prevent web pages from gathering one’s information that can be collected and used to tailor content for advertising to suit the user. Examples of search services include anonymizer and safe web.

Though the proxy services offer privacy and allow one to access blocked site, they come with limitations. The proxy servers have to first send the user’s information to their servers making surfing slow. Also the proxy tries to bypass software that is suspicious and this prevents some elements on the page from loading. Proxy servers can also be a security hazard when surfing since private information such as details of a credit card and passwords are sent using an external server which can be easily retrieved by someone else if the channel is not encrypted. Some add-ons like the flash player and java plug ins can reveal the users IP address even when they are browsing anonymously.

Users chose to use a proxy service if…

One lives abroad and the data they want to access is restricted to users in a certain country

The user wants to hide their information from being collected by web pages which use it for tailoring advertisements

The organization where the user works restricts access to certain websites which the user needs to access

The user wants to access classified information discreetly

Users using proxy services while surfing have many reasons to use the service and it all depends on the user

Exclusive proxies are critical for consumers who would like to conceal their real web IPs (Internet Protocol) and remain nameless. A majority of internet service providers normally resell their IPs by making use of private proxy servers. As such, by paying a small amount, you get an IP address along with password as well as login. These three components will allow you to remain unidentified online whilst browsing the internet. What’s more is that, you can even configure your own proxy that is private at a fraction of the price. Therefore, if you would like to know more about proxy service, then you will find this article quite an interesting read.

Whilst renting out the exclusive proxies, most consumers are occasionally told that they are the only ones utilizing the IP address, even though there are other people who are using the same address. This in turn not only affects the surfing speeds, but also provides low levels of inconspicuousness.

What is the role of proxies in IP address sharing?

The real level of inconspicuousness in exclusive proxies is minimized considerably when consumers split their IP addresses with other online users. This usually occurs when online users have no idea with what to do with their IP addresses.

Whenever online users have their very own special proxy service, they get an approximate on the number of individuals using the address and the extent of secrecy.

If you put a lot of significance on being nameless on the web, do not try to take shortcuts. The best means through which you can remain totally faceless whilst still adhering to your financial plan is by creating you very own proxy server which is private.

This is critical as speeds play a major role in the dependability of a proxy service. Hence, if you want the best proxy, insist on a test IP from your internet service provider.

If you tend to understand their working and significance, you can try to avoid what harmful aspects it may bring in.

Best proxy

The proxy is an intermediate system that is placed in between the websites and the user. If you are visiting certain websites and even just trying to bypass certain information or content on the websites, you are not aware that you are sending the data pertaining to this to the proxy server. Here comes the knowledge and the trust of the user towards the proxy server. Proxy servers are set up with a different perception of protecting access to some websites and restricting access to certain content on the web. Sometimes it is just done to regulate the visiting content of the user. An anonymous proxy server does reconstruct the content packets with different IP addresses for example. A hostile proxy is a server that tries to break into the content to use your information to the benefit of their own. The transparent type of proxy does not try to change and hide the addresses.

The best proxy server is a system that restricts the access to certain websites that are not supposed to be visited in context to breach of information and does not try to misuse the data that you send to them. The best proxy is even the one that gives security and even deletes your data with your trust towards them that their content is not in harmful hands. There are very few options available to the choice of a proxy server in the case of the environment you are in. it may be a catching proxy like in a school or a work environment which aims at restricting access and even tracking the usage.

Anonymous Proxy

Anonymous proxies are online proxies that allow you to access all sites which may be blocked by another proxy. It is safe as it does not try to misuse your data when you access the sites using this. The selection of an Anonymous proxy should be done carefully to not be cheated by some online proxy server. It uses your IP address effectively to not leave any history behind. it is not a way to view sites illegally, but in some types of environments even genuine websites are blocked for use. So to view and use them such Anonymous proxies come to be very handy. The technique used is duplication of IP in which re routing of request takes place so your original proxy takes it to be from another address allowing you to access sites virtually. The servers that offer the services of a proxy and let you access blocked websites are hence called Anonymous proxies.

The best proxy is very clear now and Anonymous proxies can act as best even in presence of a proxy service by your ISP (internet service provider)

Private proxies are often tries to be used which maybe even in the form of many ads on a single webpage. The proxy serves should be dealt with importance in relation to data scraping.

Scraping with private proxies

The data scraping is just the collection of data in the public domain which is accessible as per conditions defined. If suitable it may even access private data. The use of this is that they are kept in spreadsheets and can be dynamically called online for their use in the applications. Data scrapers hence try to target websites that have not barred certain IP addresses to access their content. This process can be used much to the advantage of an organization too. In the case in which the IP’s are restricted, different IP addresses are used to gather data from websites. Private proxies are used as a medium to achieve data scrapping. They use the same multiple IP harvesting scheme and thus you need to have them to do it yourself.

Role of Private proxies

There are a lot of private proxies that can be made to be used in combination with the multiple IP addresses to perform data scrapping. But it is better to use the choice of opting for a company that professionally does this for you. Anonymizer and scrapegoat are a few to start with. You can even try to rent for a proxy that rotates in a large number of addresses. There are many sources providing the resources for these. The advantage is that you get to use a customized scraping program instead of trying to do it in the generic way. It is so important to choose the right proxy as the private proxy because it should be trusted with the data you will be dealing with. The private proxy must be trusted enough to handle your sensitive data and not use that against you. A best proxy will never let you face the reach of your content getting worked out to your own disadvantage. The organizations dealing with data scraping using know the technical glitches and are careful with the process. They even have you receive the data in a variety of formats that you could wish for. The scraping success in relation to the proxy concerns a private proxy that works as the best proxy that you could plan for.

The use of your own proxy can lead to problems related to your own IP and hence should be avoided. You could make use of a private proxy. Some people even try to gain access to a list of private IP’s to use them effectively to re route in the process of scraping and anonymity. The general idea is to achieve scraping through a proxy which lets you scrape data even from an IP restricted environment using private proxies.
