Proxies Types and Their Function

1. Web Proxy – A web proxy focuses on traffic over the World Wide Web. Many times these proxies are used by schools, countries, or corporations to block offensive web content, or to simply control their clients access to the internet.

2. Anonymous Proxy – Anonymous proxies are used to remove identifying information from a client request. An example of this would be a proxy that allows you access to Myspace while you are at work.

3. Caching Proxy – Caching proxies can send the client their request without contacting the remote server. It does this by using information that has been sent to the remote server before. This can cut down on time for requests sent.

4. Forced Proxy – A forced proxy server handles all of the requests from the client to the internet. Hence the name forced. Many times the client will not even know they are using a proxy.

5. Open Proxy – An open proxy is a proxy that allows anybody to connect to and use. Open proxies can also be exploited and misused by spammers. For this reason some websites will not allow traffic to their servers from known open proxies.

As you can see proxies have many benefits and can be used in various different ways. The best way to become familiar with proxies is to try them yourself so you may have a better understanding of what they do and how they work.

Ways to Find The Best Proxies

# Ask your friends and co-workers

If you noticed that your colleague can access a website that you couldn’t view using your own computer, ask him or her if she is using a proxy. If he or she does, ask him or her what proxy it is. If that proxy works for them, it will most likely work for you, too.

# Browse blogs and websites that list and evaluate proxy sites

The problem with using proxies is that many of them tend to become unavailable after some time. For this reason, you have to know other proxies that you can use in case your top choice no longer works. Because of the increasing popularity of the use of proxies, many website and blog owners now dedicate themselves to giving the latest updates on proxies. You can also get advice from them on which proxies are the best. Sign up to their mailing lists so that you can get updates through your email.

# Search for the best proxies by using your favorite search engine

Your favorite search engine is still a reliable source of information when it comes to looking for the best proxies that you can use. Typing “proxy list” “new proxies” “reliable proxies” at the search bar of the search engine will give you a list of websites that can give you more information on proxies. Some proxy sites are also included in the search engine results.

Using proxies has a lot of advantages for people who would like to access websites that were blocked by the server administrator. However, even if you can now access blocked websites using proxies, you have to exercise caution and proper ethics if you are using company resources. If you are caught violating the terms of your employment, be prepared to suffer the consequences.


Why Starting a Free Proxy?

# You can predict the reliability of your proxy

Since you are the owner of the proxy, you are aware of any technical issues that your proxy has to address. You can analyze the amount of bandwidth that your proxy site is using and you can come up with ways on how to set up your proxy so that it uses less of the server resources. As the administrator, you have a proxy that is ready to use when you need it.

# You can earn some income through advertisements, referrals and membership

This is what most free proxy administrators do. If you have been using third-party proxy services for some time, you will notice that many of them have advertisements. There are some that sell banner space, while others use Google AdSense as their source of revenue. Some free proxies are also membership sites that offer more features if you get an account or join their mailing list.

You can also do those with your free proxy. That way, you can also get some income while investing time and money in maintaining the proxy.

# It is free – well, almost

Initially, you will have to spend some cash for getting the domain and the hosting. You might also have to pay for the proxy script. But once everything is up and running, it wouldn’t cost you so much. In fact, if you already have your own hosting account, then (if your web host supports it) you can just add the proxy.

If you have decided to have your own proxy, keep in mind that setting up and managing a proxy will require some technical know-how. There are some guides on the Internet on how to do this. But before you even start creating a proxy, check out the TOS of your web host if they allow you to do this.

Technologies of Proxy


If you are using proxy server – either web based, or surfing from school or work – each request from web page first goes to the proxy. The server then examines the packet content and header, checking with its internal rules.

For instance, anonymous proxy servers reconstruct data packet with a varying IP address. Thereafter, the proxy server sends request to target web server, receiving the reply later. Thereafter, it is forwarded back to the initial client.

The reasons for using proxies are many. However, the fact that all data is directed through them mustn’t be forgotten. Proxy server is usually enforced in work or school for ensuring that nobody breaks the policy of internet usage and prevent people from inappropriate content access.


Few people set up storing proxy servers, available purely for speed to save web sites accessed frequently. Transparent proxies don’t modify any such requests, and therefore, don’t hide the IP address. Hostile proxies steal passwords and information.

Though these are some of them, the uses are varied. Remember – whichever proxy you use – whether it is the one page internet web proxy surrounded by ads, or sophisticated proxy caching at work – the proxy administrator has full control of the data. Hence, it is important to take care.

The best proxy is the one which is securely run by someone trustworthy who deletes and secures the data.
