When you extend an order, you will still be able to use the time remaining from the original one. For example, if you decide to extend an order for 60 days while you still have 15 days of use left, your proxies will be available to you for the full duration (75 days in this case).

From now on, this particular order will extend automatically for the duration of your original order. The system will also include any available discounts you’re entitled to and charge the order to your selected payment method.

Note: The automatic extension period depends on the plan you purchased. A 30-day order is extended for 30 days, a 60-day order for 60 days, and so on. If you want to extend your order for a different period, use the Extend button as described above.

Whenever an order gets extended, you’ll receive an email.


You’ll also be able to see the automatic order extensions in your orders.


Note: While you can use your account balance as a charge method for automatic order extensions, this feature only becomes available once you add at least one credit card as a payment option to your IPRoyal account.

How to Configure IPRoyal Datacenter Proxies

Before you start using your proxies, you need to set them up. While datacenter proxies are pre-configured and ready for use as soon as your order is confirmed, you can still customize them. Here’s a specific example.

1. Let’s say we want to change the credentials for our proxies and set a custom username and password for each IP. We can do that in the Change proxies credentials section. Select the IP you want to change and type in the new username and password in the appropriate fields. You can also let the system generate a password for you by using the Random password option. Make sure both the username and the password only contain letters and numbers. Once you’re done, click the Change credentials button.


Once you’re done, the change will be reflected in the Formatted proxy list.

Note: You can change the credentials for each proxy once every hour.


2. You can also select the proxy type here ( HTTP/HTTPS or SOCKS5 ). If you change this setting, your proxy list will update automatically.


3. Finally, you can customize the format of your proxy credentials to suit your needs. Select the desired format and your proxy list will update automatically, so you can copy your proxy credentials straight to your tools.


4. If you ever decide to remove custom credentials from your proxies, you can do it manually for each IP as described above or reset all of them by clicking the Reset credentials button.


Do Datacenter proxies support IP:PORT authentication/whitelist option?

Datacenter proxies only support the username and password authentication method. Only our Royal Residential proxies support IP whitelisting along with the username and password authentication method.

Can I use the same proxy on multiple devices at the same time?

Yes, as long as your devices are on the same local network. Our datacenter proxies are IP-bound, so you can’t use them on multiple devices if these devices have different IP addresses assigned to them.

Can I extend the 30-day plan for a longer period?

Yes, you have the option to renew your order for 30, 60, or 90 days by clicking the Extend button in the dashboard. Make sure you have enough funds in your account balance. The 60-day plan comes with a 5% discount, and the 90-day plan comes with a 10% discount. Once you extend your order, you’ll still be able to use any time left from your initial order. For example, if you decide to extend an order for 60 days while you still have 15 days of use left, your proxies will be available to you for the full duration (75 days in this case).

This option is also available for our other services, except the Royal Residential proxies .

What are the available locations?

Our datacenter proxies are available in multiple countries. We constantly update the network to ensure our clients can always rely on fresh and reliable proxies for all their tasks. You can check the full list of available countries and locations on datacenter proxies page.

Do you offer IPv4 and IPv6 proxies?

All our datacenter proxies are IPv4. You can learn more about the IPv4 vs IPv6 in our blog post.
