What is a proxy IP?

Proxy IP is a network technology that allows users to send and receive network requests through a proxy server, thereby hiding the user's real IP address. Using a proxy IP can protect the user's privacy and security while improving the anonymity and security of network access.

Common types of proxy IP include

  • HTTP proxy: mainly used for HTTP communication, can forward HTTP requests, and return responses to the client.

  • HTTPS proxy: used for HTTPS communication, can decrypt and re-encrypt encrypted HTTPS requests.

  • SOCKS proxy: a general proxy protocol that supports the transmission of traffic of various protocols, including HTTP, FTP, SMTP, etc. It can transfer between the application layer and the transport layer. SOCKS5 proxy is the latest version of the SOCKS protocol, supporting more authentication methods and protocol types.
