    The title says everything.

    The thing is, I'm only using Scrapebox to scrap emails from a particular list of domains that I have, do I have to use proxies?

    I am asking because I always thought that proxies on Scrapebox are only for harvesting URL’s from Google, performing PageRank lookups or Indexed Page Checks.

    No. you do not.

    However if you run too many connections on your own ip it might get banned, so proxies may allow you more connections. But they are slower then using your own ip, by a bit anyway. So it may be a wash.

    test and see.

    Thank you @loopline
    Do you have any other suggestion for running ScrapeBox on a VPS? Like VPS specs.

    The most important thing is the memory, as a general rule. I mean of course the processor, but as a general rule if you have at least 2GB of memory thats a good start. I am a heavy user and most of my machines have 24GB of memory. So it just depends on what you need. I tend to max out my processors as well, but Im good with that, so you can usually adjust course as needed with a VPS. So get something with 2GB of memory or more and then if you need more processor you can always just hit up the provider, they are very often happy to take more money. :)

    Yes and no. Well if you are extracting emails from a list, you don't need proxies. But if you are scraping email from Bing, Google, etc, you should use some proxies, as that will help you scrap more effectively, without getting your computer IPs getting blocked in the process.
