    So I have been using random free proxies I can find on free proxy lists. I have windows 10 and go into settings and manually put in the proxy number and port.
    I am so far from an expert in this and it seems like there are some programs to run proxies. I don't really want that if I can help it- I would rather just stick to doing what I am doing since I know how to do that.

    I would like to buy a couple of completely anonymous high (ish) speed proxies that I can use forever instead of having to get new free ones after a few minutes.

    Also I think I need a residential one not a datacenter one or whatever. I'm using it to create multiple accounts for a game and do not want to have any of my accounts deleted. They can like see your ip address or something so I need to use a proxy for different accounts.
    is this a thing I can buy?
    If so where can I buy them?
    and also what is a browser fingerprint?
    Thank you in advance!


    edit:
    does this seem like a good site to get proxies from for what i need?

    Yes you can do exactly what it is you're referring to. Yourprivateproxy.com is ok, but they're a bit pricey if I remember correctly. How many proxies did you think you would need roughly? For what you're doing I would try data center ones first. That way if they work you can use the same IP each time you login to the account to help avoid getting it banned/killed. If they don't work you can always try and find residential one's of course, but they're usually not too fast and they change all the time, so keeping an IP tied to an account would be impossible.

    Okay thank you so much!
    yourprivateproxy says you can keep the same one for as long as you have your subscription which is monthly. I need 1-3 and they offer those small packs. Most places I have seen only offer like 50 which I don't need that many. But if you have a place you recommend please let me know!

    Yeah for smaller packages like that it can be a bit trickier. If that's all you're going to need then you might be best to go with them in this case. There's another place that I recommend sometimes as well because I know their proxies are very stable and good, he's got packages as low as 5 if you don't have luck with YourPrivateProxy for some reason. His site is https://www.sslprivateproxy.com/ and his proxies are about as good as you'll get. You can keep the same proxies each month if you'd like, but you also have the option to switch them out once a month as well if you should need to. Either way though you should be ok by the sounds of it.

    For the site you are recommending which type of proxy should I choose? Most seem to say "monthly randomize" which I am guessing means each month they are different and I would prefer ones that stay the same!

    Before making the purchase, make sure that the proxies can be used for your purpose. When you have the proxies, you can configure and use the Foxyproxy browser addon to switch between them with ease. It exists for Firefox and for Chrome too.

    If you don't your proxies to be randomized, you can ask the provider or you can buy social media proxies, those ones don't get randomized. Then again, make sure that the proxies you purchase are good for your purpose.

    You know what's the site you want to use the proxies on. Before purchasing the proxies, ask the provider, if those proxies can be used on the site or not. Some sites are more delicate, require special proxies and you can't use just any private proxy on them. Private proxy payments are non-refundable in most cases, so you need to make sure before pulling the trigger.

    you can check with the seller exactly if your game website is supported or not....but it should be no problem

    Monthly randomize just means you have the option to randomize if you'd like, not that it's automatically done. So that shouldn't be an issue, it just means if you wanted to you could change them. If you can say which game you'll be using them on we can probably let you know if they'll work, but like Honeybird said, you can message/email the provider that you want to go with to double check if you're not comfortable saying which game you'll be using them on here. Since your account is brand new you probably won't be able to send them a PM here, but you can always contact the support on any site/proxy service that you choose to ask them up front if the proxies will work for the game you want. Unless it's something really off the wall though most providers will probably work. You can always ask them for a trial if/when you message them to ask if the proxies will work with the game you have in mind.

    Oh okay! I'll be using them on neopets- if you know that's great but I will check with the provider just to be sure as well!

    I contacted the site that was recommended above: sslprivateproxy.com
    and the person who replied was EXTREMELY rude and not helpful so I will not be going with them :p
    I am still waiting to hear back from yourprivateproxy.com but it was really weird figuring out how to contact them..
