GoProxy’ Residential Proxies comprise real IP addresses belonging to Internet Service Providers (ISPs). With these IP addresses, you can bypass geo-restrictions and collect public data without disruptions.

In this guide, you’ll find all the essential information needed for a smooth start with GoProxy Residential Proxies.


What is a proxy?

The proxy server acts as an intermediary between any device and the rest of the internet. There are three main types of proxies. Residential proxies are private IP addresses from real devices, associated with ISPs. On the other hand, datacenter and mobile proxies are not affiliated with an ISP. Mobile proxies come from mobile carriers and run on mobile networks. Meanwhile, datacenter proxies are virtual and generated in powerful data centers.

How proxies can serve you?

Proxies can do the function of web scraping, SEO Analysis, Market Research, Brand Protection, Price Strategy, and Retail. Lots of enterprises, individual hustlers, and web developers use proxies every day for various use cases.

How to start with GoProxy Residential Proxies?

1. Making a basic request

After you complete the steps in the endpoint generator under the "USERNAME:PASSWORD" category, you will get a string of code. The code can be used to get your residential proxy IP address. The main steps of the endpoint generator will be listed in the part of "Endpoint generator use".

2. Endpoint generator use

We suggest using our Endpoint generator to easily retrieve a list of endpoints by selecting the necessary parameters. With this tool, you can retrieve a list of endpoints that include:

Location - random or geo-targeting locations of countries/states/cities

Output format - choose the format for your endpoints (port, HTTP, HTTPS, or SOCKS5)

Authentication method - you can choose either username:password authentication or use whitelisted IPs. (But for now, we only make username:password authentication come true. The whitelisted IP function is in test and will be available in the near future.)

Session type - you can select either a sticky session to keep your IP address for up to 30 minutes or a rotating session to get a new IP address with each new request

Once you have the parameters set up, choose the number of endpoints and use it via browser extension, device network function, or just copy it to your Command Line(CMD).

Overall, the Endpoint generator is a more convenient way to set up your endpoints and export them. If you are still confused about how to use it, you can look for the Help Center to get more answers, or contact the support team directly to search for help.

Note: The purpose of the Endpoint generator is to create endpoints only. You need your own terminal or other setup to put the endpoints to use.
