All of our proxies support HTTP(S) and SOCKS5 protocols.

Uses of HTTP proxies and SOCKS
For a lot of businesses that need to cover a lot of goals and use cases, HTTP proxies are a good option. The server configuration of the HTTP proxy can be set to meet your requirements. The main benefits of using an HTTP proxy are as follows:
» Pristine data. An HTTP proxy can comprehend data while serving as a middleman between a client and its destination. This means that web data can be cached or content filtered using an HTTP proxy. As a result, HTTP proxies aid in the removal of irrelevant information from websites and prevent unnecessary data collection.
» Advanced security. While detecting and rejecting suspicious data packets, such as spyware or malformed content, that attempt to enter your server, HTTP proxies provide an additional layer of security.
» Boost the success rate of your scraper. HTTP request header configuration is done with the help of HTTP proxies. You may be able to reduce the likelihood of being blocked and facilitate access to restricted targets with the assistance of this practice.
SOCKS proxies can be utilized in numerous applications and scenarios due to their compatibility with any network protocol or port. Several advantages of SOCKS proxies are outlined below:
» Firewalls. As previously stated, SOCKS proxies may be an excellent option in situations involving firewalls. Clients may be unable to establish arbitrary TCP connections to outside servers when they are surrounded by a firewall. SOCKS proxies come into play at this point to make it happen. In point of fact, the firewall may restrict a client's access to particular websites via an HTTP connection, which also applies to HTTP proxies.)
» Compatibility with any and all network ports and protocols. SOCKS can connect via TCP, in contrast to an HTTP proxy that only establishes an HTTP connection. Additionally, SOCKS5 proxies can deliver datagrams over a network via a User Datagram Protocol (UDP) connection, ensuring effective performance.

Main differences between HTTP and SOCKS proxies
The type of proxy you should ultimately select is largely determined by your objectives and requirements. Now that we are familiar with both types of proxy, we can highlight their main differences.
