See Terms of Service for details.
[/spoiler] [spoiler title=”Your Proxylist site reports the total of proxies, which seems to be pretty large compared to other sites out there. Are all proxies stored in ProxyList database actually live?”]No. Roughly, 5% of all HTTP/HTTPS proxies (around 1% for SOCKS) in ProxyList database are AVAILABLE for use. That is the reason why Proxylist.co’s multi-thread proxy engines are constantly testing these proxies using the multi-threaded proxy testers to keep the database updated with the fresh and tested proxy lists to be downloaded by paid subscribers.
[/spoiler] [spoiler title=”What is the advantage of using SOCKS over HTTP/HTTPS?”]The traffic through SOCKS proxy connection may be faster than HTTP proxy by around 10-20% because SOCKS are less popular than HTTP, as well as a bit more complicate for novices to configure the computer to use the SOCKS proxy connection through the SOCKS proxy client than HTTP proxy. However, SOCKS have the advantages when it comes to multi-applications usage (other than web browser) such as the ICQ, mail client, etc. that can be connected to the Internet anonymously.

Please see “How to Configure Socks” section here on how to use SOCKS proxy.

Even though the proxy IP is functional, it is possible that the proxy server is running too unreliably due to many factors such as the slow network speed.

  • Accessing to your sites (Hulu, Google, Yahoo, Bing, Facebook, Wikipedia, Craigslist, etc.) are blocked due to their own proxy detector that detects that you’re using proxy IP instead of real IP address. That is the reason for considering us over “shared private proxies” services offered by other companies.
  • Many organizations such as schools, corporations, etc. currently block their favorite web sites by blocking their specified web site addresses (http://www….) or their real or known proxy IP addresses.
  • Proxy bypass sites don’t last forever. Once they have been detected and also blocked, you have to find another proxy server. Remember, they can last for some time though, and new proxies are beginning generated as fast as the old ones are being blocked. You should therefore, find a proxy website that provides you with more than one alternative.
  • It is possible that the recently filtered proxy IP address has died down after few minutes of testing done by Proxylist multi-threaded proxy testers. Fortunately, you have plenty of extra proxies provided by ProxyList to utilize for your anonymous Internet access needs.
  • Even though if a proxy server works fine today, it doesn’t mean it will work tomorrow or next week. Remember, there are no such 100% working proxy servers anywhere.
  • When it happens (non-working proxies), just come back here to visit your member section here and download the latest proxy list.
