    Can someone point me to a numbnutz guide to proxys and ips etc?

    I know every pc has an ip.

    I know a proxy is a substitute ip to hide behind

    I know websites have ips. Some have unique ips. If I get hosting with a unique ip can I use it as a proxy?

    I see lists of public proxies. I am guessing the more well known the list is the more useless it is?

    I see programs like scrapebox that need proxies to operate. Do they come with them or you gotta get your own?

    here you go..

    Code:

    scrape box can harvest free proxies that are available online. however they do not last long since spammers use them also. paid proxies are more reliable for hiding your ip.
