    Hi,

    Here are some questions I'd like some proxy expert to answer for me.

    - Are proxies in high demand all the time?

    - What countries are the best to use proxies from?

    - Do proxies cover your ass 100%?

    - To setup your own proxy, what is the best software to use?

    - Would it be worth setting up your own proxies and then selling them?

    - If I were to offer 1000 proxies, what software + equipment would I need? Do I need more than one internet service provider for each proxy?

    - Is it possible to run 1000 proxies out of one machine?

    - What is a rough estimate for the cost of setting up and running 100 of your own proxies? and the what would you sell each proxy for per month?

    - If you sold a proxy, how would you assign that one proxy to one person and stopping others from using it? Can you password it?


    Looking forward to all your responses,

    TheFonz

    are you serious?!?!?

    you need to read 3 books to answer all of these questions! in the simpler form at least 20 pages of "how to do this and that!" try answering most of them yourself with research!

    No one here will teach you how to start/operate your own proxy business. In additional, it's getting nearly impossible for you to make it possible due to IPv4 shortage.

    If I were to do that then what use is blackhatworld to me? We are all here to ask questions and learn from one another. If you don't have anything valuable to say then keep it to yourself!

    Having the IPv4 shortage makes it even lucrative to start one wouldn't it? Supply and demand as they say.

    Sure this is blackhatworld, not spoonfeedworld. Your first questions already shows how much research you did.

    IPv6 will come and it will screw the proxy providers, you will buy billions of ips with 1$

    In order to setup your own proxies you will need any distro of linux, where you will setup squid.
    None provider will let you run non authenticated proxies. So you have to run squid with NCSA authentication which is build in feature, so your proxies will be something like ip:port:user:pass
    You will need to work in terminal environment for all these.
    You will have to route all ips you have rent on squid of course. Costs of ip's are min 1$, no HOW they sell dedi proxies for 1$ or less is a mystery ;)
    You do not need a high demand server for all this. Squid requirements are less.
    As a conclusion I can guarantee to you that even if you succeed to setup your own server you will not be able to sell since you lack experience on troubleshooting.
    I setup my own proxy server BUT for my own usage. Do not intent to sell cause as stated below in order to have profit and sell real dedi proxies i will have to sell at least 3$-4$ per proxy.

    I tent to disagree. Still thereis some reliable companies who allow you to have 30-40 ip's per server.

    IPv6 migration will take several more years - probably by 2015-2016. Many large companies are not ready to switch to IPv6 yet due to the high migration costs. Many web hosting companies are not even ready for IPv6 too. Even though I have trillions of IPv6 IPs right now, they are useless for the time being.

    I'm referring to this guy who think he can run his own proxy business. It won't happen, unless he has the dough to acquire other private proxy providers, which may be the best way to get into business (SquidProxies is one of them).

    I forgot to add one more: IPv4 costs have been rising.

    I know information about IP's, I like to get things right before going ahead with something. Take as step back.

    I'll take my chances.

    How do you know I lack experience turkey, I'm smarter than that! Why figure it out when I can outsource! You don't have to be a rocket scientist to do that!

    Thanks for giving me atleast some value Nick.

    Portal - It sounds like to me that you don't want me in the business because I see you supply proxies yourself and don't want me in on the game. I see right through you.

    Would that even matter seeing as the proxies are private? What can they do?

    I know one thing, your definitely not plug and play. I see a blue screen (face).:confused::eek:

    No, you do not need to be rocker scientist to accomplish this, but in your first post you do not even know what program to use, sorry to say so but where is your experience? Judging from your question at first place, the obvious is that you have no experience at all, not even how to install a proxy server but generally the whole proxy marketing field, since you also asking if proxies are in high demand.
    I would never start a service myself if I had to outsource it. I can't trust anyone since I will play with my reputation.
    You think it is so simply just to outsource a service and have profit? Then anyone would do this or you think other does not think about it?

    Ask yourself how you started out and then back to me.
    Everyone starts from somewhere and I happen to be here.

    1 year later...., I like to flag my competition off of that word we cant say on this site unless we pay $97.... I wondered for a few days now if setting up my own server would be a good solution and now im sure this is not for me even 30 ip's is not enough if the best I could do is c class, 111.111.XXX.XXX, i also thought about remote dsl but is expensive and their is a free remote dsl solution on this site but i don't feel comfortable letting someone use my ip's.... im using my dsl to switch ip's ,,, vpn's are working ok i have only found 3 vpn services that give me lots of random ip's,,, i just signed up for another dsl line really hoping that i will get ip's that are different then i have now, i could get dsl set up over at my brothers house and control it thru teamviewer, besides that im pretty sure the only option i have is to learn more about leaching proxies .... i have tried a few programs with minimal success that was years ago, after seeing the limited ip range of private proxies, shared proxies, setting up your own proxies, scanning for proxies seems like my only option a wide range of ip numbers, i forgot to mention that i only need ip's from 1 united states city its a major city so not that hard to get them just need to get better at finding free proxies that work for weeks at a time

    ... People use proxies to be anonymous. Having a billion ipv6 IP's won't change that - they'll still identify you.

    Proxies are not going anywhere. Maybe datacenter proxies will die - due to the fact that datacenters shouldnt be allowed to surf websites anyway (in terms of risk=blocking a teeny-tiny .01% of legitimate surfing and reward=blocking the spammers)
