Residential Rotating Proxy

Anonymous proxies are easily the most popular and well-known proxy varieties available today. One lesser-known type of anonymous proxy is the rotating proxy. While rotating proxies share many features with regular anonymous proxies, they also have some significant differences.

If you need extra security beyond what standard anonymous proxies offer, rotating proxies can provide added protection.

What Are Rotating Proxies?

Before answering what a rotating proxy is, we must first understand what an internet proxy is. An internet proxy sits in-between a client and a server. The proxy acts as an intermediary between the two parties. Data passes through the proxy, and neither the client nor the server communicates directly.

Anonymous proxies act in much the same way as standard proxies, with one key difference, they do not disclose that they are a proxy, nor do they divulge data about the client. The client IP address, location, and device details are kept private; the server only sees the proxy and assumes that the proxy is the client.

Rotating proxies take this approach further by constantly varying IP addresses utilizing a vast IP address pool. Depending upon the proxy configuration, IP addresses will automatically change after a specified interval, usually ranging from a few minutes to a few hours. Some rotating proxies may even change IP addresses after every session regardless of the time.

Rotating proxies represent the pinnacle of anonymity by ensuring that every session has a unique address, protecting each user’s privacy.

When Do You Need a Rotating Proxy?

While theoretically, you can use any proxy for any purpose with a few exceptions, some proxies perform better than others at particular tasks.

Rotating proxies excel for tasks that require an added level of security and anonymity. Rotating proxies can also be advantageous to bypass certain restrictions, such as geofenced content or other access limitations.

Examples of specific uses for rotating proxies include:

  • Downloading multiple files from a source simultaneously
  • Streaming content from different regions
  • SEO and keyword research
  • Data scraping

The extra privacy allows you to avoid the typical bandwidth and resource restrictions that impede your workflow. For instance, when conducting data scraping, a server might block access after a fixed number of requests— sometimes for an excessive length of time. Rotating proxies are ideal for these cases because they minimize the server’s ability to track movements across their domains. 

Because rotating proxies always use new IP addresses, you can avoid these access limitations since every request appears as a new client.

The only issue to be mindful of with a rotating proxy is services that require persistent logins. Because each session is unique, some sites may not function as expected if they need an account login. In such cases, a static residential proxy would be a better option.
