Datacenter Proxies vs. Residential Proxies

Product: LATEST By: Markel Created: (27,07,2022 at 16:45 PM)

Although Residential and Datacenter Proxies serve the same core functionality – hiding your IP address – they have quite a few differences. In today’s article, we’ll dive deep into each of these proxy types to help you choose which one is better for your business. 


What are Datacenter Proxies?


Datacenter Proxies are proxies that are not affiliated with an Internet Service Provider (ISP). They come from a secondary corporation and provide you with completely private IP authentication and anonymity.

When it comes to hiding your IP address, these proxies don’t have anything to do with your internet connection or Internet Service Provider (ISP) as these are completely independent of both. This way it is easy for you to hide your IP address without being linked to one particular place.

Websites also use cookies to help and identify your IP address by placing them in your browser. Of all the online fingerprints you leave behind when you browse the internet, your IP address is the most valuable, as it can pinpoint your exact geographical location. This way, search engines can provide localized results, and websites can geo-block content based on your location.


So, if you need online anonymity, or you want to unlock content from another country, you can try a paid datacenter proxy service to help mask your IP address. The trouble is, websites are getting more aware of this, and will often block datacenter proxies. There is a way though – if you’re tired of being flagged while using datacenter proxies, residential proxies offer an effective way around this problem.

What are Residential Proxies?


 Residential proxies offer IP addresses that are connected to real residential addresses, making them all but impossible to ban. This allows you to effectively hide your real IP address, work around geo-blocked content or scrape and harvest data from around the web. Buy residential proxies from reliable providers only, and avoid free proxies if possible.

Are residential proxies better than datacenter proxies

In short, the answer is yes – and there are a few reasons why you should choose rotating residential proxies over datacenter proxies.

1. Residential proxy IPs are more legitimate– Security systems will usually place more trust in residential IPs, as residential IPs are assigned only to real residential addresses. Basically, some websites can detect you are using a proxy connection and you may find that your datacenter connection is blocked. What usually happens is that datacenter IPs are often easier to acquire than residential IPs, and a high percentage of datacenter users will be hiding their real IP for malicious purposes. Therefore these IPs are more likely to be banned.

2. A greater range of locations to connect from – Rotating residential proxies offer a range of locations you can connect from, making them ideal for circumventing geographical blocks.
