    What sort of proxy solution is best for mass account creation?

    I'm not sure if there are any cheap solutions for my needs. I see exclusive proxies can be quite expensive for a small amount.

    Would a free proxy site like proxyfire be my best bet?

    Here's a thing when it comes to "Mass Account Creation" as you need to make tons of accounts you should have proxies which can stay alive for hours.Despite of the fact as Private proxies are Expensive but they give you 99.99 Up Time as compared to Public Proxies.

    sites like proxyfire are good when you need different ips "Not just last 2 Octets" but i dont think so they will help you with account creations.

    You definitely can not get 1000 private proxies for 35$, trust me.
    Not even close to it.

    Something is wrong with that offer;)


    Guys keep in mind that most proxy offers on the internet should be checked 3 times before getting them.
    Stay with reputed people here on BHW, that's your best bet.

    Legal, cheap solutions for mass-account creation that I can think about:
    Tor, Cloakfish, public proxies (maybe from a paid list?)

    Private proxies will probably be too expensive for that purpose.

    I never fully understood Tor, but I was pretty sure it wasn't a proxy. It definitely didn't hide my IP from a site like whatismyip.com

    Cloakfish looks good, but at 100$ a month for unlimited proxies, I really need to start with a cheaper solution before upgrading. It definitely seems like the best option.


    Looks like my best option is probably scraping proxyfire and filtering with Charon?

    If you have that high IP demands you'll probably not be happy with native Tor.
    Cloakfish provides different 15 IPs daily, so that sums up to 450/month.

    Charon + some free IPs you find will be a start for sure.
    See if you can make money with your activities, once you have cash flowing in it might be time to look for a more professional solution.

    Yea, I think that might be the best approach. I definitely need a lot. Preferably 1 proxy per 1-2 accounts. With a few thousand accounts per day, I'd need a minimum of 500 a day.

    The unlimited option of Cloakfish seems be the way to go in the long term. It's the cheapest solution I've seen. I assume the proxies aren't private, but I don't really need to be the only one using them.

    Thanks.

    And then get 1000 news IPs each month ?
    I doubt that's a long-term solution.

    For real mass-account creation you need dynamic IPs, static exclusive proxies are not that well suited for it as you don't want to use a single IP twice.

    Yea that's more like a 500$ daily solution.

    Giantfish 150 proxies per day 30 days 1x 64$
    Swarm unlimited 30 days 1x 99$

    That's the cloakfish top prices, they are per month too.


    Dynamic IPs?
    I'm on DSL so I do have a dynamic IP, but it's horribly slow to DC the internet, wait a minute, reconnect. Wait for the computer to connect, and the start. This is all being done by automation too. Unless there are dynamic proxies, but I'm sure they'd be even more expensive then privates.

    I think what you're looking for is either prohibitively expensive or kind of unreasonable. At the very least a giant pain in the ass to manage.

    Now, if this is just for account creation itself, then you only need the IP for 5-10 minutes tops, right? That means you're never going to use that IP again. Even if you used a private list of scraped/hunted proxies like proxygo's, you'd still have to keep a list of which IP you used when in order to keep from repeating yourself, otherwise the whole system is invalid anyway. And after a few months (that's if you're EXTREMELY lucky) you're just plum going to run out of a decent amount of IPs no matter what, as there just aren't that many available to use if you're never repeating.

    If you go with a private server proxy solution like packetflip, you'll have to repeat IPs, but it's a lot easier to process and you never have to worry about downtime. Instead of continually inputting all the proxies to whatever script or program you're using, you can just rig them up once and set it to random select (plus easy geolocation and a bunch of other features). At least then you don't have to continually modify your script and pay out the ass for new IPs every day that'll eventually dry up.

    Either way, pain in the ass.
