    What is the difference between Hide My Ass VPN Pro and Lime Proxies?

    I've been told that HMA is just a virtual proxy and people can "unmask" it... I know that it doesn't work on Plenty of Fish... Does it work for the worlds most popular classifieds site?

    Can someone tell me the technical and practical differences?

    HMA is a VPN server instead of virtual proxy. limeproxies provides proxy service.

    There are two problems of VPN. (1) If you use VPN, all the programs will use the VPN connection. You can not choose which program use VPN and which use direct connection. (2) Because of the strong encryption, VPN is much slower than direct connection.

    Proxy is usually used only in browsers. When you set a proxy in browser, the proxy will fetch the web pages for your browser.

    If you only need to change IP in browser, you can try our http://myiphide.com myiphide.com. It's faster than VPN and more secure than ordinary proxy. It's free for 3 days.

    HMA is typically a VPN service best for keeping your communications secure, encrypted and to bypass censorship/firewalls. Mostly used for personal use.

    LimeProxies is a Proxy service which suits best for business, scraping, running multiple threads and etc. You get access to multiple proxy IPs which can be used with your software for flexible usage.

    For your purpose of classified ad posting, proxies would suit better.

    proxies also changes your ip :))) the difference is that the VPN connection is encrypted ...
    Regarding HMA, all ips from HMA are shared between their users, so it will be hard to find an ip that will work let's say, to create an YouTube account. On the other part you can get for proxy providers virgin ips that can be used to create YouTube accounts without phone verification ...
    This is the major difference , ips quality, speed etc ...
