We understand that one of the most common questions our users have is whether to choose rotating proxies or static proxies. In this article, we aim to provide you with a comprehensive overview of both options, highlighting their unique features and the best use cases for each.
Rotating Proxies: When it comes to rotating proxies, we offer a unique and dynamic solution. Our rotating proxies are delivered in a sticky format, meaning that each session with our proxies lasts for an average duration of 60 minutes, during which the IP address used behind the proxy remains constant.
With rotating proxies, you receive a pool of IPs that rotate at random intervals. For example, if you purchase a plan with 200 IPs, you can expect to have access to up to 300 unique IPs over a 30-day period. This ensures that you have a wide range of unique IPs available for tasks that require as many unique IPs as possible.
Static Proxies: For those who require a more consistent IP address, our static proxies are the perfect choice. With static proxies, the IP address remains constant throughout your session and plan period, ensuring that you maintain the same end IP address for an extended period. This is particularly useful for tasks that require continuity and consistency, such as managing social media accounts or farming Gmails.
Static proxies are especially beneficial for websites that pay attention to user locations and IP addresses during account login processes. By using static IPs, you can ensure a consistent IP address for logins and maintain a trusted online presence. The IPs never rotate. For example, if you purchase a plan with 200 IPs, you'll have those 200 IPs until your plan expires.
Choosing the Right Proxy Type: When deciding between rotating and static proxies, it's essential to consider your specific use case. Rotating proxies are ideal for tasks that require a large number of unique IPs, while static proxies are recommended for jobs that require continuity and consistency.
On many websites, all of our products are usable, such as Adidas, Nike, Footsites, Shopify, and more. The choice really depends on user expectations and desires. For example, on Nike, if the user believes it helps to use the same IP address for account generation and the proxy, then they should choose static proxies. However, until Live Proxies 2.0, we only had rotating proxies and everyone was still happy, so there isn't a straightforward answer to that question. However, one thing is clear: if the proxies are needed to manage Facebook, Gmail, LinkedIn, Twitter accounts, then static proxies should definitely be the choice to maintain the accounts safely.
