What is a static IP proxy

Proxy OkeyProxy

By the time you've read this article, I'm sure you've got a good idea about proxy servers. So, please follow me to see what static IP proxies are and what they are.

According to the nature of IP address allocation can be divided into static IP address and dynamic IP address, this paper is mainly to explain the static IP proxy, before understanding it, please allow me to introduce the static IP first.

What is static IP

Static IP addresses, also called fixed IP addresses, are assigned by an ISP to a computer or network device for long-term use. With static IP addresses, you can directly access the Internet without automatically obtaining network addresses and avoid IP conflict. However, you need to manually set the IP address on the computer, and it is usually expensive.

What is a proxy server

Before you do this, you need to understand that it is the proxy server. A proxy server is an intermediate server between your computer and the Internet. With proxies, the requests you send to websites pass through them before they reach them, and they act as firewalls to help you access restricted data and hide your IP.

What is a static IP proxy

Static IP proxy means that the IP address of an agent does not change during the process of providing proxy services for you. This does not mean that you can have a fixed IP, but rather that they assign their IP to a proxy that their customers use temporarily. There are two main types:

Static residential IP proxy

A residential IP proxy is a type of proxy that routes client requests through real Internet-enabled devices in people's homes. Because they take advantage of the IP addresses of these devices, they are often difficult to detect, thus reducing the case for blocking. They are expensive and often have limited bandwidth. (Note: Residential agents are not all static IP agents, they also offer rotating residential IP agents -- a type of dynamic IP agent)

Static data center IP proxy

A data center proxy is a proxy that assigns IP provided by a data center to its clients. They are more associated with spam, thus easier to detect and subsequently block, and easier to generate. The providers of these proxies provide them with unlimited bandwidth.

It is the most common type of agent and the cheapest on the market. Just like data center VPNS, their IP addresses come from the data center. However, with the IP and its ports sold to you, there is nothing you can do if any IP is blocked. Data center proxies are typically static IP addresses. They can be easily detected and are not suitable for use on strict websites with detection agent capabilities.
