First, we shall explain what an IP address is. An internet protocol (IP) address is the unique code assigned to each computer when it connects to the Internet. The IP address is used to locate the computer and enables it to communicate with other connected computers.
A static residential IP address is provided by an Internet Service Provider (ISP). This IP address is legal and legitimate and has a physical location attached to it. Residential IPs are easy to locate and usually allow ISPs or websites to collect information about your online activity.
Recently we teamed up with our partner Multilogin, a browser fingerprinting software which allows users to scrape websites while controlling the fingerprints they leave, for an educational webinar. Multilogin has integrated GeoSurf to work with their platform, allowing its users to automatically create fingerprints according to proxy location together with other profile guidelines set by their clients. They have developed a great tool for web scraping companies and it is used by thousands of customers worldwide.
This year was a speed train of interesting and exciting growth opportunities for GeoSurf.
We have added many new features and tools to make your journey with us smooth and successful and we hope you have enjoyed the developments.
Today I’m more than happy to announce that GeoSurf is switching to a new and improved Dashboard infrastructure and user interface (UI). The rollout of the new dashboard for customers and users will be on November 5th, 2018. The transition will be seamless, there is nothing you need to, just log in to the dashboard like you always do.
The new GeoSurf Residential Dashboard UI is a more modern, faster, user interface meant to improve our customer’s experience alongside with feature requests we gathered from our customers.

What is Insomniac Browser’s Proxy Per Tab?

We added a unique IP cooldown ability to our network increasing the success rate for specific domains by utilizing a learning algorithm which selects the optimal IPs for a specific domain.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
- Authentication – The authentication is done in the same way as all other gateways, so, if your IP is whitelisted in our system you can start using the State gateway immediately.
- Location selection & Session persistence – Available by Gateway: Port, proxy headers and username & password options.
- Gateway domain – us-social1.geosurf.io
This new product allows our customers to fetch Search Engine Result Pages directly by using an API.
- Keyword mode – Specify the keyword and number of required pages and you are all set.
- Full URL mode – Advanced users can encode the following parameters within the SE URL
Over the last couple months our development team worked hard on re-writing the GSR gateway architecture allowing us to offer more services, better IP resolution & selection.
WHAT EXTRA FEATURES WERE ADDED?
IP location by Proxy headers – Easily define the IP location by using proxy headers, Country, State & City level IPs can be selected using X-loc proxy header.
Session persistence by proxy headers – Control the session persistence by X-Session proxy header.
We are excited to let you know about a major improvement made to the GeoSurf Residential Gateway system.
So, let’s start!
State Gateway which supports all US states and Session persistence by headers!
We added a brand-new Residential IP Gateway that allows you to choose State’s IPs. This service is available for all 50 US states and Washington DC.
