Discussion in 'Proxies' started by eurgbp, Feb 25, 2009.
i wonder where do proxy providers get or buy ips and how do they do it?
any clue or hint?
Some proxy providers operate or obtain their proxies from botnets, which is a network of compromised computers.
Private proxy providers generally get their IP addresses from datacenters.
so they buy VPS from hosting company then order 100 ips
then add to VPS into process proxyfying application?
Usually you buy dedicated servers and not a vps
And if you need large amounts of ips you need ip justification forms (ripe/arin) proxies are no justification.
So actually you always risk losing your IPs or not receiving more.
They can get them from many sources,
- Datacenter, borrowed, leased.
- ARIN of course.
- Big client with a big allocation
- Generous carriers / upstreams
- Block used already for other things (eg: mailing)
In my case, i have a datacenter and ive got a couple of B classes that i could use for proxy, im trying to contact Harro so i post an offer shortly, i could do 1 dedicated server with 4 C blocks and a 100 Mbps port for a reasonable price.
Very useful information. I love this place
ok so people do like this
buy VPS or DEDICATED, more likely dedicated, because for VPS ips issued might be limited
then they ask 100 ips from datacenter where they host they dedicated
then all these 100 ips are directed onto dedicated server
then you put SQUID, or any other NIX or WINDOWS proxy software
then you can access internet via 100 ips through one dedicated
got it, thanks
