Datacenter proxies, located in data centers and directly connected to high-speed fiber optic networks, offer a shorter route with fewer hops compared to residential proxies. This results in lower latency and faster speeds, with requests going directly from the datacenter to the target website, maximizing throughput. The simplified network path and centralized infrastructure of datacenter proxies remove complexities around peer-to-peer networks. They are easy to scale and manage without relying on individual residential IPs. The speed, scalability, and simplicity of datacenter proxies make them ideal for use cases such as:
a) Managing multiple accounts with different IP addresses to avoid blocks, thanks to fast speeds that handle rapid account switching.
b) Web scraping simple public sites that don't require complex residential IPs, as the direct connections provide blazing scraping speeds.
For larger websites with advanced bot-detection systems, like social media platforms and online retailers, consider alternative proxy solutions like Web Unblocker.
