    Anyone got experience with it? Where do you get the proxy servers from? Especially the amount of like 70k, 300k, 2mln proxy pool wonders me. Where do you even get residential proxies from to sell them?

    I am creating a website to sell proxies. To be honest it's not very profitable unless you figure out ways to get good IPs. IPs is key and with IPv4 and limited subnets it is very difficult to get good IPs. All IP providers can easily be traced and now it becomes more and more important to find residential IPs. That is where the game is.

    I have figured out a method myself and will capitalize on it soon. The entire game to find your method and stay legal while doing so.

    Most of them are selling residential proxies and these comes from botnets aka infected devices.

    So if you want to get in you need to do illegal stuff for sure. Make sure to fly under the radar or FBI will raid your home and kick your ass LOL

    Almost every online business requires proxies so it is a profitable business to enter but there is already a lot of competition out there. You can try finding out some reselling services for proxies!

    How do these folks usually infect devices to get residential IPs? I won't do it, but just wondering ;) no, for real

    I heard some company in china had infected ~400mln devices into a botnet that they used to rig ad game
