How to use HTTP proxies on your browsers
A private proxy server is a dedicated IP that is being exclusively by only one client at a time, mainly to hide his public IP address assigned by the ISP
When it comes to proxies, there are a few different types of proxies one can look into:
- Residential proxies
- Datacenter proxies
Currently, we are providing datacenter proxies.
