    I haven't used proxies yet, but, how long can I use a proxy?

    Seems like I might have had problems from my IP... I tried to make new manual profiles on Tumblr and Instagram, and my accounts get cancelled immediately, then I opened an account from my phone without connecting to my home router and the account stayed without problems.

    I think If I use a proxy, then I can manually open new accounts and run my automated software... but, how long a proxy would last before it goes dead???

    Say the cost of the proxy is 1 dollar per month, but if it goes bad the same day, does it mean I need to buy a new proxy??

    What would be a good point not to get blocked or banned?

    HMA has not let me down yet. Yeah, it cycles, but its better for my purposes than buying a bunch of proxies that may or may not be dead.

    There is no limit but public proxies stop working after a while. I would recommend a private proxy or a VPN like hidemyass, cactusvpn or secretsline.

    If you buy proxies they won't usually die, and if they do they'll be replaced. Proxies dying, and IPs getting banned are 2 different things though. No one is going to continually replace proxies that you're getting banned. What most people do is buy a few proxies, and spread the accounts out across them accordingly. So if you have 20 accounts, maybe you buy 10 proxies, and manage/run 2 accounts per IP. If you buy private dedicated proxies, most suppliers will let you change those out once a month.

    Proxies can definitely help keep your accounts alive, but they're not a "cure all". It's still up to how you use them as to whether or not they're going to benefit you as much as they can. If you've been working off of only 1 IP though, it's probably safe to say that you're going to need to get some. Also, keep in mind that there's other factors that can go into getting your accounts banned faster, or helping you to keep your accounts alive longer. Cookies can play a big role in how quickly your accounts and IPs get banned depending on the site.

    Public proxies are not good, in comparison to HMA. I am using three different vpn softwares HMA, pure vpn and cyberghost. Pure Vpn has a drawback, when I check my ip on Google it says .hk but in some ipaddress.com it shows the country I connected to.

    This is a great thread. I have the same NOOB questions about Proxies. So, HideMyAss? That's a name that I am familiar with. I watched some YouTube videos on this, and it APPEARS as if the IP addresses will change every so often. Is this correct? I am trying to figure out a way to work from home with multiple IP addresses that remain unchanged for several months...if not indefinitely. Is this why I would opt to purchase proxies from private sellers in the "Proxies for Sale" section of BHW? I'm trying to solve my problem efficiently and inexpensively...without spending thousands of dollars on servers and such. Thanks (I'd "thank" your post, but my "thanks" buttons have disappeared.)

    Private proxies are better then public proxies.I suggest HMA is the best one.
    sometimes it is good for me and sometimes it is problematic to connect to there services

    From my personal experience, it is safe to register only about 2 tumblrs at a time from the same IP. Try again after a day or two and you can register. After sometime, you cannot even try the username using the same IP and the register form gets stuck. It is also important to note that IPs already in spam databases are more likely to be banned quicker compared to virgin IPs. And try to rotate proxys/IPs for better results if doing manually. As mentioned, private or even shared somewhat dedicated (less used) proxies are going to perform better. I have noticed this with email verification too. A clean IP from a tier 1 country does not need phone verification at times while a spammed IP would probably do. EU (especially tier 1 EU countries) performs the best overall (even better than US) from my personal experience while Asian, South American and African proxies do not work very well.

    Most importantly, do not try to register again and again using the same IP. Gmail is a different game altogether though and I can hardly register 2-3 bloggers using the same account.
