What is a residential proxy?

Residential proxies let you browse the internet with the IP address of a real end-user who has volunteered their IP address to our proxy network. When you visit a website, the website sees the IP address of the residential proxy server instead of your real IP address, allowing you to mask your location and identity. Because residential proxies use real mobile or desktop devices, they allow you to effectively evade anti-bot measures when scraping data from websites.

Frequently asked questions

What is a residential proxy?

A residential proxy is an IP address assigned to a physical location by an internet service provider (ISP).
Unlike datacenter proxies, which are hosted in data centers, residential proxies appear as genuine residential connections, tied to real end-users. They provide users with increased anonymity, as websites are more likely to recognize them as regular users rather than proxies.
Residential proxies are commonly used for web scraping, ad verification, accessing geo-restricted content, and conducting market research. They offer a higher level of trustworthiness compared to other proxy types due to their authentic residential origin.

How do residential proxies work?

Residential proxies function by rerouting internet traffic through real IP addresses assigned to individual users by ISPs. Proxy providers build a pool of these addresses by collaborating with willing participants.

When a user sends a request through a residential proxy, it's forwarded to a gateway server that can route the traffic through various residential IPs, maintaining anonymity. This allows users to access websites as if they were regular residential users, enabling tasks like web scraping and bypassing restrictions.

Are residential proxies illegal?

Residential proxies aren't inherently illegal. They are a type of proxy server that routes your internet traffic through a residential IP address provided by an Internet Service Provider (ISP). What can be illegal is how you use them. If you use them to access websites or scrape public data, you're fine. If you use them to scrape protected data, you might get in legal trouble.

What are the benefits of using residential proxies?

You can use residential proxies for business or personal purposes. Residential proxies are best for those who want to easily collect vast amounts of data and crawl multiple websites in a few seconds. With SOAX residential proxies, you can gather data using legitimate IP addresses from any location in the world.

Why are residential proxies so popular among businesses?

Residential proxies help businesses simulate a real user who lives in a particular country, region, or even city. This is useful for collecting data, monitoring SEO, verifying ads, and a huge number of other critical tasks.

What can I use residential proxy servers for?

You can use residential proxies for different purposes. For example, you can use them for market research, analyze competitors or consumer trends, scrape e-commerce websites, compare prices in different locations, or collect data for other business needs. 
You can also use residential proxies to monitor your marketing activities, verify ads, protect your brand from fraud, or monitor search results
Proxy servers help businesses improve their website performance for better customer experience: for example, you can check your website availability in a specific location or test connection speed.

How much do residential proxies cost?

The price of residential proxies can vary wildly. It depends on the proxy provider and how many Gigabytes you purchase. While you might be able to find free residential proxies, those kinds of proxies aren't secure. If you need a proxy for your business, SOAX offers a $1,99 trial.

How do you check if a proxy is datacenter or residential?

To distinguish between datacenter and residential proxies, you can take several steps: 

Firstly, analyze the IP range, as datacenter proxies often fall within specific ranges used by hosting providers, while residential IPs vary widely.

Secondly, employ reverse IP lookup tools to identify whether the IP is linked to a datacenter or an ISP.

Header analysis of HTTP requests may also reveal the proxy's origin, with datacenter proxies often bearing distinctive headers.

Additionally, consider using proxy detection services that maintain databases of known proxy types. Lastly, assess response times, geolocation, and user reports for further insights into the proxy's nature.

How extensive is your global proxy coverage?

The SOAX proxy network provides extensive global coverage with access to over 195 locations worldwide. However, please note that, due to the intricate regulatory landscape concerning IP address usage and anonymity in Texas, we currently do not include or support proxy servers located within the State of Texas.

What other proxy types do you offer?

We offer different proxy types:

  • Mobile proxy: For when you have to manage multiple social media accounts or verify ads.
  • Datacenter proxy: For when you need high-speed proxies and anonymity is less of a concern.
  • ISP proxy: For when you require anonymity, but you need something faster than residential and mobile proxies.
