Choosing the Best Proxies for Web Scraping

From eCommerce and market research to competitive analysis and more, web scraping has become an integral part of data collection. And for some, it’s the secret sauce for success.

But with great scraping power comes great responsibility. 

Web scraping can result in IP bans and other harsh restrictions. To avoid these issues, many turn to proxies, which act as intermediaries between your requests and the target website. In this article, we’ll explore the top 3 proxy types for web scraping and focus on the key benefits of each proxy. Let’s go!

Static Residential Proxies

We’ve alsredy spoke of Rotating Residential Proxies but now I want to share SmartProxy‘s new Static Residential Proxies.

Static Residential Proxies do not rotate randomly but rather on-demand. They are good for web scraping to make a spider maintain its session at single website. And this session memory might last for life.

How are they different from dynamic/rotating residential proxies?

  • Greater stability
  • Faster speed
  • Website sessions keeping

Backconnect Proxy Service with authorization in JAVA

Working with a Backconnect proxy service (Oxylab.io) we spent a long time looking for a way to authorize it. Originally we used JSoup to get the web pages’ content. The proxy() method can be used there when setting up the connection, yet it only accepts the host and port, no authentication is possible. One of the options that we found, was the following:

Oxylabs.io at a glance

Oxylabs Logo VerticalOxylabs.io is an experienced player in the proxy market. In the past few years, they have significantly expanded their proxy pool.

Right now they have a residential proxy pool with over 60M IPs and over 2M datacenter proxies. Their residential proxies cover every country in the world (!) and offer city-level targeting. Oxylabs datacenter proxies come from 82 locations and feature 7850 subnets.

Oxylabs is mainly focused on businesses and it is reflected in their product subscription plans. But recently they have introduced a Fast-Checkout feature, where customers can purchase residential proxies in a few clicks. Together with a recently added smaller plan ($300/month for 20GB of traffic) Oxylabs becomes much more attractive for smaller customers as well.
