Pretty much im in need of someone to get me a cloud server close to nike to run my bot on.
I don' understand the need for proxies/servers to work with nike.com? I read almost everyday someone asking for it... Someone please explain this to me...
Run a trace route and find out which backbone and datacentres they are using.
I assume you're talking about a sneaker bot?
And presumably you think being close to Nike will give you an edge?
Firstly, they will have servers all over the place.
Secondly, it's about more than just proximity
1) Go to http://nike.com.ipaddress.com/ and find what location nike.com uses
2) Forget about it, coz it will not give any advantages for your bot
Okay what would help me cop more shoes on my bot? its betternikebot.
Nike sells limited quantity shoes that have high resell values. So people make software call shoe bots to get multiple pairs to resell. Nike is trying to stop people from doing this by detecting the people using the bots during releases and banning there ip(thats what people are asking proxies for) Nikes probably banned 90% of subnets out there so its getting harder and harder to use bots. Also people, myself included ask for servers close to nike for a faster ping for loading the site quicker during releases.
