    Hi,
    can you explain what are proxy`s used for bots and where can I find them?
    Are they same as some web proxy`s and bot enters pages through them or are they something else?

    A proxy or proxy server is basically another computer which serves as a hub through
    which internet requests are processed. By connecting through one of these servers,
    your computer sends your requests to the proxy server which then processes your
    request and returns what you were wanting. In this way it serves as an intermediary
    between your home machine and the rest of the computers on the internet. Proxies
    are used for a number of reasons such as to filter web content, to go around restrictions
    such as parental blocks, to screen downloads and uploads and to provide anonymity
    when surfing the internet.

    If you are wanting to surf the web anonymously then proxies can provide you with
    a means to hide your home IP address from the rest of the world. By connecting to the
    internet through proxies, the home IP address of your machine will not be shown but
    rather the IP of the proxy server will be shown. This can provide you with more privacy
    then if you were simply connecting directly to the internet. There are number of proxies
    that can provide you with service. You can find a list of these simply by typing "Proxy List"
    into any search engine. There are some proxies which are free and some which charge
    money, the choice is up to you but we have found that the paid proxies are more reliable,
    faster and more secure.
