    Can anyone tell me if the proxies from vip72 are any good and how long they last?

    I know this site has been mentioned several times here but nobody has ever given much details about the service.

    I've checked out their website but it doesn't say much.

    1. How many proxies are available with the "unlimited" plan?

    2. How long do the proxies usually last?

    3. Can you choose what geo-location/U.S. state their from and get a list of only those?

    5. Is the cost monthly or how often?

    6. Can you use more than one proxy at the same time, i.e. copy and paste a list in text, proxy: port format?


    I appreciate any information anyone can give.

    Thanks!

    I saw Vip72 mentioned several times here and I thought I'd give them a try. My experience with them was terrible. From my experience the free proxies you get online work better, and they have -0.0% support...you'd get more support from a roll of toilet paper. Their means of contact is an icq they NEVER reply to. Its pure trash, and I would recommend you to stay away.

    To answer your questions:

    1. There are many proxies available, I never counted, but you have a few pages, I never got off the first page though, enough problems there. Most never worked well for me.

    2.The first question answers the second.

    3. Yes you can choose your geo-location/state, the filter works.

    4. The cost is monthly. The way they have it on the first page, it gives the impression you pay $10 for the month, the $10 is for a few days, I ended up parting with almost $40 for the month.

    5. I never tried using more than one proxy, so I can't answer that.

    Stay away. You will have better luck with free proxies.

    Actually I was thinking, if anyone wants to try Vip72, I have a 30 day membership, I only had it for 3 days, and not too keen on using it. I am not saying there aren't proxies there, there are tons, they just didn't work for my purposes, and honestly, there is no support, but if you're experienced and you know what you're doing, you may not need support right? I could hand over the membership for less than you would pay if you went to register, and then you could change the password etc, I am not trying anything here, its just not for me, it might work for you.

    5socks.net = illegal

    My opinion is that if you have to use illegal botnet proxies to do your business you are in a bad niche.

    Yea, I thought the same. It's not easy to figure out exactly what the cost would be.


    Thanks to everyone for their input.

    Exactly. I think some of those sites purposely try to confuse you.

    All of a sudden your proxies aren't working or your membership isn't good and you find out the proxies were only good for so long or you could only use so many proxies per day, etc. etc.

    They sell access to hacked computers, that's why the prices are low.
    I'd not really want to use them if I were in a country that cares about its laws.

    I remember in germany police just busted a botnet guy a week ago and everyone they could identify using it.
