Adding Proxies for More IPs

The ProxyMesh rotating proxies only have 10 IPs at once. But users running large projects may require more than that number at a given time. However, because these IPs are shared, we do not add extra IPs to an individual proxy server.

The issue is not resolved by adding more user accounts, but by adding proxies to a single account. To have more IPs running simultaneously, consider using additional proxies. Upgrading your subscription plan will increase your number of proxy locations. For example, the ProxyMesh 50 plan gives you 5 rotating proxy locations, for a possible total of 100 IP addresses a day. With ProxyMesh 100, it's 11 proxy locations, for a total of 220 IPs a day.

With ProxyMesh 50 and 100, you can also add extra proxies to your plan, as described in Changing Your Subscription Plan.

However, keep in mind that the additional proxies will be in other locations. If a proxy is a far distance from its target server, network latency can result. There are several types of network latency; in this case it means a delay in connection and transmission of data between two computers located far apart and communicating over the Internet. The delay is generally due to the geographical distance and the number of "hops" required to make the connection.

Managing Latency

In the US, you can manage latency by picking a ProxyMesh proxy server close to the server you want to communicate with. But if your proxies are in different continents from your target servers, you may encounter higher latency. Here are some solutions, with their pros and cons.

World Proxy

You can connect to a specific country through the world proxy with the X-ProxyMesh-Country custom header, as detailed in the articles on World Proxy and Proxy Server Request and Response Headers. You will have to pass the custom header in an HTTPS request, which can be tricky. Also, the world proxy server is physically located in the US, even though the outgoing IP will be in your target country; therefore the request latency will be high. And the world proxy has a static list of IPs for each country that does not rotate.

Proxy and Target in the Same Country

Overseas, as in the US, you can reduce latency by choosing a proxy as close as possible to your target server. For example, using a ProxyMesh rotating server located in the same country as your target brings them closer together, making latency much lower. And, because each server has a set of 10 IPs that change twice per day, you are likely to have several hundred IPs available in your target country in a given month.
