How it Works

Our article below outlines everything you need to know about how IPBurger works and how you can get started in minutes…

How does IPBurger work?

IPBurger operates servers that act like a gateway between your device and the rest of the internet. By creating an account you can choose between 5 different proxy types to best fit your needs and monitor your usage from a custom dashboard. 

When you turn-on your IPBurger proxy, our servers act as a protective barrier between your devices and the internet. Accepting and forwarding connection requests, masking your IP address, and changing your geo-location to a global position of your choosing. With IPBurger, you can unleash the full power of the internet with the click of a button. 

Types of Proxies

Dedicated Proxies:

  • A Dedicated IP address is one that does not change. It is reserved for one user at a time and It is not shared with anyone else. Dedicated IPs are hosted in a data-center and are primarily used for business purposes. 

Fresh Proxies:

  • Fresh IPs are the highest quality data-center Dedicated IPs. These IPs do not change and are reserved for on user at a time. On top of that, they are “fresh.” Meaning, they are held in a 180 day cool-down period before being sold to any customer. Fresh IPs are highly desirable among users that need to manage accounts and avoid IP bans. 

Shared Proxies:

  • A Shared IP address is an IP that is shared by multiple users at once. This means multiple users (sometimes 100+) will be using the same IP at once. This is not necessarily a bad thing, though. By sharing an IP with many users, it increases that individuals privacy. A good rule of thumb: if the service provider doesn’t specify what type of IP you’re buying, it’s a probably a Shared IP.  

Residential Proxies:

  • Residential IPs are IPs owned by Internet Service Providers (ISPs) like AT&T, Cox, Comcast, Charter or Time Warner. Residential IPs are assigned to their local customers that subscribe to home internet packages. Unlike data-center IPs, these IPs are generally tied to real people and home addresses. This adds an extra layer of trust to your online presence. Residential IPs commonly used to circumvent or scrape data from web services that block data-center IPs. 

Mobile Proxies:

  • A Mobile proxy routes your traffic through a real mobile device connected to a 4G cellular network. Mobile proxies use mobile IPs from real devices, making them undetectable when used correctly. Mobile IPs are commonly used to circumvent or scrape data from web services and apps that block data center IPs.

Why Should I Use a proxy?

Avoid Geo-Blocks

Many websites limit access to some  countries. They can detect a users location by checking the IP address of the device attempting to access the service. 

People use proxies to change their IP address to one in a more suitable location. This means that anyone using a high quality US proxy can access any US-only content without restrictions.

Protect Privacy And Security

The internet is not a safe place. Thousands of people become victims of scams and hackers every day.

In some ways, browsing the internet with your IP address exposed is the same as displaying your identity everywhere you go. Hackers can use an IP address to track you or steal information on your device. Proxies hide the IP and encrypt traffic coming and going from your device. 

 

Avoid Bans and suspensions

Every time you log into a social media network or other online service, the IP address connected to your device is saved. If your account is suspeneded or banned, so is your IP address. This means: if you try to make a new account from that same device it will also be banned. Using a dedicated proxy or VPN masks your IP address and replaces it with a new IP, allowing you to avoid bans and suspenions.  

Manage multiple Accounts

Managing multiple accounts on the same platform can be frustrating and risky. Opening multiple profiles from the same browser and IP address is often frowned upon and can lead to a suspension of your accounts. Clients in the e-commerce and advertising space know this all too well. Using the right Dedicated IP for each account keeps users safe from IP blocks and bans. 

Mine Data & Automate Processes

Using Residential and Datacenter IPs, you can anonymously mine data or monitor competitors websites for changes. Many businesses use these IPs to gather data and populate databases with valuable information automatically. Streamlining systems and automating time consuming research tasks.
