One of the options for the translation of the English term Proxy is the phrase “proxy” - and this fully reveals the semantic load of the topic of this article. The proxy server is a separate software complex, which is an intermediate point, an intermediary between the user and a certain resource on the network. This is an additional link in the data transfer chain through the Internet. On your order, the proxy server requests or transfers information to the target resource, acting as a final consumer for him, while representing your interests anonymously.

Proxy acts as a kind of gateway or filter between you and the source of information on the network. It allows its customers to make indirect requests for third -party network services, accepting them to their address and already on their own behalf of transporting further. The process begins with the fact that the user connects to the proxy server and enters the request to connect to the resource he needs. Further, Proxy either himself connects to the desired service, or gives the client a version saved in his own cache. Sometimes the received request from the client of the proxy server or the server response can be changed in order to ensure security. The use of this technology unfolds additional advantages and opportunities for customers:

🔒 The anonymity of users for targeted resource is ensured;
🔒 Protection against cyber attacks is guaranteed;
🔒 The software proxy complex successfully confronts tracking;
🔒 The share of privacy for the consumer of data is increased;
🔒 The use of a proxy server allows you to get around locks;
🔒 Significantly increases the level of security for the customer of the service.

Each modern proxy server allows the transmission of data almost without loss of speed, the exception is resources using outdated equipment and artificial traffic restrictions. provides its customers with a high -quality speed service based on the use of their own equipment and the latest generation software. Our proxy servers differ in the ease of configuration and a sufficient data transfer rate. If necessary, each client receives our support service and can deal with the organization of proxy surfing on the network in a matter of minutes.

The use of a software intermediary when working with the Internet today has become an almost widespread need if you want to accept and receive data without any locks and restrictions on the part of regulatory authorities. A qualitatively working proxy server opens up many opportunities for its users, such as:

🔒 Confidentiality. You turn to the required resource through an intermediary, i.e. For the final addressee of the request by the recipient and the data sender, it is Proxy software complex, and you retain your anonymity.
🔒 Security.In the event of a cyber attacks related to the use of a particular resource, their goal will become a proxy server, and you will enjoy the safe use of the right sites.
🔒 Bypassing locks. Nowadays, when the authorities of almost every country prohibit more and more resources, this item becomes especially relevant. Do not deny yourself convenient and familiar sites and programs using proxy.
🔒 Access to chosen content. There are resources intended strictly for certain countries and regions on the network. If you are located not there, you can access them through a proxy server.

Additional tasks assigned to Proxy: this service can be used by both private individuals and entire companies. In addition to the above advantages, the proxy service can ensure the implementation of some other tasks. It is possible to speed up the operation of the network, this becomes possible thanks to the use of cache copies of popular sites that are stored in Proxy memory. Its participation reduces the real load of the required resource and allows you to accept and receive data faster. The filter of unwanted sites, this option is used in public networks, a kind of analogue of “parental control”. You will not be able to visit prohibited resources, for example, open a twitter from a working computer, etc.

Data compression also helps to speed up the network. Before sending to the final addressee, user requests undergo special processing, which positively affects the speed of traffic. Turbo-mode in some popular browsers work in a similar way: Yandex and Opera. This set of functionality makes the use of professional proxy server an important element of ensuring the confidentiality of personal data and guarantees of cyber security.

Proxy-The service can be organized in different ways, it depends on the principle of the work of this software intermediary. Consider the most common proxies used in practice at present.

Forward Proxy – Direct server: It is located between data consumers and their external sources. Forward Proxy receives a request coming from the user, processes it through software algorithms, and only then goes into the external network. Using a direct proxy server, you can visit sites closed in your region, provide anonymous surfing on the network, etc. This type of Proxy is a predominant option among such solutions.

Reverse proxy – Reverse server: Most resources store information on several servers at once. The task of the reverse proxy server includes the reception of incoming requests, their analysis and redirecting to the desired resource. This option is well balanced by the load, distributing traffic, especially in peak hours. Visiting any site, its visits do not suspect that Reverse Proxy is actively involved in this process.

Proxy servers provide anonymity on the network for their customers, But they differ in the degree of data confidentiality. Several gradations can be distinguished proxy:

🔒 Transparent proxy server. The addressee is visible to the IP server sending requests, it is also clear that the appeal is made through an intermediary. The usual option for use at enterprises, universities, etc.
🔒 Anonymous proxy server. Changes ai-Pi, therefore provides anonymity for his client. With it, you can bypass the blocking of various resources, nullify the possibility of tracking marketing robots. But the resource address in this case still understands that the intermediary service is addressed, and not the real user.
🔒 Distorting proxy server. In this option, both IP and HTTP-headings are changing, which allows you to imitate the request from a real client, and not through mediation proxy.
🔒 Proxy servers with increased anonymity. These are the safest and most modern options for this service. During use, a frequent change in the IP address of the user occurs, it is quite difficult to track the real location of the user.

To choose a certain type of Proxy, the user must analyze the functional tasks that he plans to solve using this service. You need to clearly define for yourself: why specifically you need a proxy server, because you will have to choose their rather impressive variety. At the moment, we can talk about dozens of types of software systems: FTP, POP3, SMTP, CGI and many others. Consider the most popular options below.

HTTP-proxy: Now this is the most common type of proxy server. It is applied almost everywhere: in offices, libraries, educational and medical institutions and in many other places, including data centers. The main functional tasks of HTTP-PROXY can be attributed:

🔒 Caching files (compression of the size) to increase data transfer speed.
🔒 Blocking unwanted resources. It is actively used in schools, universities, at enterprises and wherever it is necessary to limit access to extraneous, malicious or distracting content.
🔒 Blocking advertisements - HTTP Proxes can reduce the load on traffic due to the fact that the block for advertising simply does not load in the user browser.

HTTPS-proxy: Using this service, outgoing traffic is made. At the same time, external resources simply do not have the opportunity to access personal information, which is transmitted by the client’s computer. The use of HTTPS Proxy is especially relevant when it is necessary to keep confidential information secret, for example, data for entering personal accounts (logins and passwords), bank card numbers.

Socks-proxy: This type is considered the most progressive and modern. The network protocol was developed a long time ago-more than 30 years ago by American Coblas, and today new versions of this Proxy: SOCKS 4 and SOCKS 5 are already used. A distinctive feature of this proxy server is that information about the IP address of the client is not transmitted, at the same time The final resource does not “understand” that the user sends his requests not directly, but uses the complex. The advantage of SOCKS-Proxy over the HTTP version is that the first is able to process any traffic flow, and HTTP is only web pages.
