The main purpose of a proxy server

The main purpose of a proxy server

Imagine that for some reason you have to appear in court. It’s not that you have committed a crime or broken the law in any way, but you still have to show in the courtroom as a citizen of your country and be legally represented.

To appear more serious and legitimate in court, it is best to be represented by a lawyer. They are experienced professionals and can be of great help in your particular case. They are there to defend your rights and make your experience in court as pleasant as possible. Their role is also to make the judge perceive you as more legitimate, understand your arguments in a clear way, as well as respect you and your citizen’s rights.

Ad injections 101

Ad injections 101

Have you ever downloaded a file off the internet? You know what I’m talking about. When you have the “run” and “install” pop-ups and the 5 million page terms and conditions that none of us EVER read.[1] Well… if you’re downloading these kind of apps on your work computer and then doing QA or checking geo-targeted ads and content, then you may be giving completely inaccurate information to your clients. No. You are definitely giving completely inaccurate information to your clients.

So… what exactly am I talking about?

I don’t know if you’ve hear of this little bastard, but I’m talking about ad injectors. Ad injectors insert ads into others’ sites, without permission from those sites and without payment to those sites.[2]

Why choosing the wrong Proxy Server could cost you your job!

Why choosing the wrong Proxy Server could cost you your job!

Alright, let’s get something straight.

Think you’re getting a good deal when you’re using that “free” proxy server? (Note: that was sarcasm) Let me tell you something. For a proxy to provide unblocked internet access, a server needs a ton of bandwith to send information back and forth to the user. The thing is that bandwith costs a lot of money (and I mean A LOT)—and they need A LOT of bandwith. Plus, they need to hire maintenance, security, operations, and so forth. So why would they be spending all this money to create a FREE service? Because it’s not free.

Surf by Ireland Proxy

Surf by Ireland Proxy

If your website offers value for visitors from Ireland, studies show you could be much more successful if you geotarget your content and advertising to Irish users. Depending on the format of your site, you could show news/weather/time from Ireland, offer articles that interest them, videos that are trending in Ireland, special offers for items purchased by Irish web surfers and much more.

But once you target things to the Irish user, you will need a way to check that everything is displayed properly and funnels are flowing correctly. Since you probably want to target other areas too, you will need a premium proxy switcher to get the work done.

Surf by Costa Rica

Ever wonder how the internet appears to users from Costa Rica? The truth is, the internet displays differently to users from each location. An internet user from China sees completely different ads and content than a user from New York or Costa Rica. Some of the differences may be:
