Proxy types

SSLPrivateProxy offers high anonymity proxies, using HTTP/HTTPS. The following types of proxies are available:

Private dedicated proxies

Private proxies use dedicated IP addresses, and they are elite proxies assigned only to one user. They are optimized for accessing Facebook (Facebook proxies), Twitter, YouTube, and they can also be used for SEO tasks.

Shared semi-dedicated proxies

The shared proxies are cheaper, but they are shared between multiple users. However, semi-dedicated proxies are useful for hiding your IP address and unblocking restricted websites.

Social sites proxies

Such proxies are used for accounts creation, likes, shares, basically growing accounts for promoting content. They are set up for accessing services like Instagram, Pinterest, Linkedin, Snapchat. These proxies (e.g., Instagram proxies) are invaluable for any internet marketer.

Ticketmaster proxies

Ticketmaster proxies are specialized proxies that can be used with ticket bots for purchasing tickets on sites like TicketMaster, TicketFly, AXS, VividSeats,  StubHub, Tickets.com, and all other similar sites.

Sneaker proxies

The sneaker proxies are optimized for coping sneakers from Yeezy, Adidas, Nike, Footlocker, Supreme, Champs Sports, Footaction, and other sneaker sites.

Proxy client

The SSLPrivateProxy HTTP proxies can be used in various ways depending on users’ needs.

Manual configuration

All popular web browsers can route your Internet traffic through HTTP/HTTPS or SOCKS proxies. Setting up a proxy in a browser is an easy task.

Proxy browser extensions

Browser extensions can be used for faster management of the proxy settings. For example, you may install FoxyProxy extension/add-on that works for Firefox, as well as for Chrome.

Proxy software or proxy bots

Proxies have an essential role when it comes to implementing some gray hat or black-hat SEO-related strategies. These tactics involve automation, and manual proxy configuration is simply not an option.

Here are several proxy software applications and proxy bots that can be used with SSLPrivateProxies:

Use the proxy programmatically

You may easily use HTTP proxies programmatically. For example, in PHP, you may call the cURL function similarly to the code below:

$proxy = ‘127.0.0.1:8888’; //proxy IP and port
$useragent=”Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.1) Gecko/20061204 Firefox/2.0.0.1″;
$url = ‘http://xyz.com/ip.php’; //the URL to be accessed
$credentials = “user:password”; //the authentication username and password – get them from the Client Area

$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT,15);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTP_VERSION,’CURL_HTTP_VERSION_1_1′ );
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPPROXYTUNNEL, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_PROXY, $proxy);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_PROXYUSERPWD,$credentials);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERAGENT,$useragent);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER,1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION,1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER,0);
$result=curl_exec ($ch);
curl_close ($ch);

IP source

All the proxies offered by SSLPrivateProxy are using data center IP addresses. According to the support team: “We don’t spoof our IPs’ location to look like they are residential ones. Also, we don’t use the abused Hola network”.

IP rotation

IP rotation is available only through the API. More precisely, by calling the getrandomproxy from the API, you get a random proxy on each request.

IP replacement

You may get a fresh batch of proxies at the beginning of next month, by placing a request from the Client Area. IP replacement is not available for Ticketmaster proxies, except for an additional fee. You may contact the support team for further details.

Authentication

The authentication is either IP based (IP-AUTH) or user/pass authentication. You may select the authentication type from the Client Area. For the IP-AUTH you are allowed to use up to  IP addresses.

Bandwidth

SSLPrivateProxy offers unlimited bandwidth for all types of proxies.

Speed & Performance

For testing the speed of the proxies provided by SSLPrivateProxy, I have used an Instagram proxies package that has the main purpose of managing multiple IG accounts.

You may see below the proxy speed test results. I was impressed by the provided speed in all locations, and the speed loss was acceptable even when accessing long distanced proxy servers (e.g., California).

Note: The speed test was performed in Europe, on a Mac machine using the Firefox browser.
