A Short Intro to Backconnect Proxies

A backconnect proxy is more than just a regular proxy that lets you use another computer’s IP and location when using the internet. Instead, it’s a gateway to a proxy pool, simplifying proxy management for large-scale projects.

But let’s start from the beginning.

A regular proxy server allows you to connect to it directly, routing your internet traffic through itself before reaching its final destination. Today, you can easily find free proxy lists on the internet or buy a list of dedicated IPs from a premium provider.

Even though these proxy lists are useful, managing them for tasks that require constant IP rotation, like web scraping, is quite difficult.

This is when our backconnect proxies come into play.

They give you access to our entire pool of residential proxies that automatically switch and rotate your requests across numerous IPs.

So, instead of getting an unmanaged list of residential proxies that rely on unstable connections of end users, you get access to a backconnect server that fetches and rotates the residential IPs for you. This makes proxy management much easier, which is particularly valuable for large-scale projects like web scraping.

FAQ

Is web scraping legal?

Although we are not lawyers, the best answer we can give is ‘it depends.’ The legality of web scraping depends on your jurisdiction, what data is collected, and what you do with the data. If you are unsure about your activity, we recommend contacting a legal professional.

Are backconnect proxies more expensive than standard proxies?

Typically, backconnect proxies cost a bit more because they are more expensive to operate. Although the upfront fee may be a bit higher, the performance and load that backconnect proxies handle can reduce the cost over time.
