Proxy servers updating
Modern proxy servers do much more than forwarding web requests, all in the name of data security and network performance.
Proxy servers act as a firewall and web filter, provide shared network connections, and cache data to speed up common requests.
This proxy list is updated once every 60 seconds from the data stored in our gigabyte-sized proxy database.
The list can be filtered down by a number of attributes such as the port number of a proxy, country of origin of a proxy, and the level of anonymity of a proxy.
When the proxy server forwards your web requests, it can make changes to the data you send and still get you the information that you expect to see.
A proxy server can change your IP address, so the web server doesn’t know exactly where you are in the world.
Our powerful software checks over a million proxy servers daily, with most proxies tested at least once every 15 minutes, thus creating one of the most reliable proxy lists on the Internet - all for free.
Every computer on the internet needs to have a unique Internet Protocol (IP) Address.
Think of this IP address as your computer’s street address.
If you’re using a proxy server, internet traffic flows through the proxy server on its way to the address you requested.
The request then comes back through that same proxy server (there are exceptions to this rule), and then the proxy server forwards the data received from the website to you.
