What is a Backconnect proxy?

A Backconnect Proxy refers to a proxy server that uses a pool of residential proxies for random, continuous rotation.

What is a Backconnect Proxy used for?

A backconnect proxy is required when extracting data in large quantities. It is also utilized when attempting to access sites that implement blocking techniques.

There are two main blocking techniques, IP-blocking, and Rate-blocking.

IP-blocking: flagging and blocking IP addresses that are from a data center or from forbidden geolocation.

Rate-Blocking: limiting the number of requests allowed, per IP, per minute.

Companies that extract web data for price comparison, market research, ad verification and more, need to overcome these common blockades and backconnect proxies are the solution.

How does a Backconnect Proxy Overcome Common Blocking Techniques?

A backconnect proxy is a proxy server that uses a pool of Residential IPs or Real-Peer IPs, meaning they are assigned from an ISP to a user. Residential IPs have all the characteristics of a real device in the country, city, ISP or even ASN required.

Utilizing real-IPs allows for easily overcoming IP based blocking techniques that deny datacenter IPs as well as specific geo-locations.

Rate-blocking is bypassed by using a backconnect proxy pool and rotating proxies based on a specified number of requests. By ensuring no IP makes more than a certain number of requests (usually between 1-10) , rate-blocking techniques can be avoided in their entirety.
