What Is a Residential Proxy?
A residential proxy is a server that acts as an intermediary between the user's device and the websites they visit. Unlike other proxies that use data centers, a residential proxy server comes from real devices with an IP address provided by internet service providers.
These proxies make it look like the user is in a specific location (country or city) and can rotate IP addresses as needed. Residential proxies allow users to access restricted content and avoid detection while maintaining anonymity. They're primarily used for web scraping, data aggregation, SEO research, and other activities that don't require lots of traffic.
Residential proxies surpass the competition regarding anonymity and undetectability because of where they obtain their IP addresses. Unlike datacenter proxies, residential proxies correlate to IP addresses from actual ISP customers. The class of IP addresses may seem like a trivial detail, but it’s essential for particular tasks. Some things such as video streaming, online shopping, and banking, have extra security measures to detect and block proxies.
ISP-sourced residential proxies get around these limitations because they appear as regular customer traffic from the server’s point of view. With the continual rise in the popularity of streaming services, unrestricted access can be appealing.
In recent years, streaming sites, in particular, have set their sights on preventing proxies through various detection mechanisms leading to a myriad of user complaints.

Customer insight features
How do residential proxies work?
A residential proxy handles all the requests you send to websites, apps, and other online platforms. It also receives all the responses and sends them back to you. In this process, the proxy replaces your IP address with its own, keeping your online activity private.
Are residential proxies safe?
Residential proxies come from real devices with residential ISP connections. In other words, they’re indistinguishable from genuine internet users. These proxy servers have the highest IP trust scores, so they’re ideal for web scraping and other scenarios where a high success rate is critical.
Can residential proxies be detected?
No. There’s no way for a website, app, or any other online platform to distinguish residential proxies from genuine visitors.
How do you test residential proxies?
You can use our IPRoyal Proxy Tester to test your sticky and rotating residential proxies for any website. It works on Windows and allows you to check proxy type, speed, and the current status of multiple proxies at once. You can also filter them and export them in .txt format.
How often do residential proxies rotate?
That depends on your settings. IPRoyal offers precise TTL (time-to-live) control for residential proxies. You can get a new IP address for every request you send or use the same one anywhere from one second to 24 hours.
Does IPRoyal offer pay-as-you-go residential proxies?
Yes. The Royal residential proxy service is based on a pay-as-you-go model where you only pay for the traffic you use. Buying a larger amount of traffic at once includes significant discounts (up to 75%). The traffic you purchase never expires - you can spend it whenever and however you want.
Does IPRoyal offer unlimited bandwidth residential proxy?
Yes. Our Static residential proxy service offers genuine residential proxies without any bandwidth and session limitations. However, these aren’t rotating residential proxies. You pay for IPs that remain the same for the plan’s duration (1 day, 30 days, 60 days, or 90 days).
Can I use IPRoyal residential proxies for ddos attacks?
No. You can’t use IPRoyal residential proxies (or any other service) to cause any damage or service disruption or engage in any other illegal activity. You can find more information in our Terms of Service.
How much do residential proxies cost?
The cost of rotating residential proxies is based on traffic and starts at $7 per GB. Purchasing traffic in bulk introduces discounts that reduce this price down to $1.75 per GB and is significantly more cost-effective since this traffic never expires.
