    Hey Guys,

    I'm currently running two accounts on my computer with Massplanner (which by the way is an incredible software). At this point, I think its smart to start scaling my operation. My question is, if I run multiple proxies on Massplanner, will I need a VPS? Also, does anyone have a recommended person in the market place to buy proxies from? I bought one from Proxy-N-VPN and it didn't work, so I'm looking for other sources.

    Thanks

    a VPS is just a computer that you rent.

    Thanks Txholdem. I knew that, but I was reading yesterday that a lot people were saying its stupid to run proxies without a VPS. I couldn't figure out why though.

    i dont know why its stupid. the advantages are resources are flexible and somebody will be watching it for you. i will not use a vps if i have a very good computer and i dont leave my house ever.

    bullshit. the reason people say that is because on a vps you got a static IP, which basically allows you to auth your Ip in your panel and not worry about it, but you could also use your computer if you prefer and in case you don't have a static IP on your home connection, just use the password and username given to authorize.

    the best thing about a vps is that you don't have to worry about leaving your pc on, it's incredible helpful, but by no means necessary.
