Features and Benefits of Rotating Proxies
This article describes the workings of the anonymous rotating proxy server. The ProxyMesh rotating proxy provides Level 1 Elite anonymity, the highest class of proxy anonymity
ProxyMesh handles the proxy rotation and rotating IP addresses for you, hiding your IP address and ignoring proxy servers that are not working. Every 12 hours, new IP addresses are rotated in and old IP addresses are rotated out. We implement the HTTP protocol, which is supported by practically all client software. We also support IP address authentication, making configuration simple.
All of our proxy servers are data center proxies. Each proxy offers IPv4 addresses.
Using our rotating proxy servers is easy. You don’t need to do any special configuration or download an application.
Here are several ways the anonymous rotating IP changer proxy server can enable your use cases.
Avoiding Rate Limits
With rotating IP addresses, you can avoid rate and bandwidth limits. By changing your IP address frequently, you can get around any site or API that uses IP throttling or IP address rate limiting.
Hiding your IP Address
A rotating proxy server provides the best way to hide your IP address from external sites. It masks your location and identity, which is essential to protecting your privacy and anonymity online. Instead of using a single anonymized IP address, it changes your IP address for each request, providing multiple IP addresses to hide behind.
Distributing your requests across several rotating proxy servers makes it easier for you to avoid blocking. The times are staggered so that not all servers rotate at once. This minimizes blocks resulting from duplicate requests to a single proxy.
When you use Visual Web Ripper (VWR) with our rotating proxy servers you can hide your IP address and anonymously scrape data from targeted web pages.
Rotating proxy servers provide high levels of anonymity. Each time you make a request, a random IP address is chosen. Our outgoing IP addresses are different from the proxy server you connect to, making you difficult to track.
Other Types of Proxy Servers
Static proxy servers have IP addresses that do not change. If you use a single static IP address for a large number of requests at the same time, it may get detected and blocked. They can also be less reliable and slower. For more information on static proxies, please see our user article Adding Proxies for More IPs.
Free anonymous proxy servers are no guarantee of privacy protection and can leave you open to malicious intent. The proxy service provider is able to track everything you do, and may not provide reliable customer service.
