What should I know about proxy servers and anonymity?
How can I get more proxies?
Below are three recommended proxy providers. We've had good experiences with them, and one of them is sure to offer a service to address your particular use case.
luminati.io:Offers a high degree of anonymity, and you only pay for the traffic you send through the service. Easy to use and eliminates a lot of decision-making about number of proxies required and other such details.
theipdealer.com:Great for projects requiring a large number of proxies and a high degree of anonymity.
bestproxyandvpn.com:Inexpensive, and a good choice when a smaller number of proxies is required. Allows manual rotation of your proxies once per month; just keep in mind that this requires manual replacement of proxies in dexi.io, too.
How can I add my own proxies?
Both subscriber and nonsubscriber account holders can add additional proxies to their account. If you add your own proxies, you can - at your option - disable the proxies provided by dexi.io.
dexi.io monitors configured proxies and automatically disables those no longer responding. We also measure proxy performance by downloading a 1 MB file through the proxy once per week.
Incidentally, this means the maximum measurable speed is 1024 Kb/sec (or ~10 Mb/s). This is the minimum speed of all dexi.io proxies, but they usually perform closer to 100 Mb/s, depending on traffic levels.
What proxy packages does dexi.io offer?
Free: Features ~10 proxies, all of which are rated at 10 Mb/s and are highly available. The IP addresses are registered with dexi.io, and are not anonymous. They can be detected and tracked by vigilant Web site administrators who may want to prevent Web scraping activity.
Premium:Features an additional ~50 proxies, all of which are rated at 10 Mb/s and are highly available. The IP addresses are registered with dexi.io, and are not anonymous. They can be detected and tracked by vigilant Web site administrators who may want to prevent scraping.
If you require a high degree of anonymity, we strongly encourage you to purchase additional proxies that are built for anonymity.
