Want to know most important points about Wget Proxies?

In simple terms, Wget is a free and easy-to-use command-line tool that you can use to download files from the internet. It allows users to download files through HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, and FTPS protocols. Below are some of the program’s features.


The tool is designed for robustness, which means it can download files even on poor internet connections with unstable bandwidth. In an instance where the program fails to download a file due to a poor internet connection, it will automatically try to continue with the download from where it left off. This process will be repeated again and again until the whole file has been downloaded.

Recursive download

This feature makes Wget work like some sort of web crawler. How? The tool will extract files from HTML pages and download them in sequence recursively until all the pages have been extracted or until the recursion depth specified by the user has been reached. The downloaded pages are saved in a similar structure to that of the remote server. Moreover, users can adjust links downloaded in HTML to offline files. This is known as website mirroring, and Wget uses the “robots exclusion standard” unless the user turns it off.


Wget has minimal dependencies on third-party libraries and only needs a basic C compiler and BSD-like interface. Initially, the program worked from a UNIX environment and was invoked from the Unix shell. Over the years, it has been ported to several Unix-like environments and systems such as Windows, CygWin, and macOS. It is also a native Windows package.


Once launched, Wget requires minimal user interaction and will run smoothly on a “set it and forget it” basis. This contrasts with most other similar tools that need regular user interaction to operate smoothly. 

With all this information in mind, why do you need proxies for Wget? Read on to find out.


What is a Wget proxy?

A Wget proxy is a tool designed to mask your actual IP address while using Wget. Your internet traffic is rerouted through the proxy, which provides a new IP address for all your requests.

Why do you need Wget proxies?

Wget functions like a bot, and bot activity is frowned upon by most websites. Therefore, you need a reliable proxy server to hide your real IP address and location from prying eyes.

    The fastest and kindest support I’ve ever seen. Manager May helped me with all the questions I had. They've got pretty big pool of Residential IPs and you can buy even 1 GB which is awesome when you don't need like 10 GBs

    Very good product. I bought one of their offers and they meet my expectations. Very easy communication. After investigating the problems, I corresponded with the support and they solved the problems very quickly and helped me with some tools.

    IPRoyal is great. I am getting good connections in the USA. The best thing about IPRoyal is their service. They are available 24/7. I am a 67 year old and know nothing about proxies. They were very patient with me and did not rush me through the process. I love IPRoyal!
