Residential proxies are IP addresses owned by internet service providers and assigned to real devices, such as smartphones and laptops. Residential IPs are highly trusted by most websites. They can occasionally go offline, which is why they are constantly rotated to ensure maximum reliability.

There are two types of residential proxies:

  • Wi-Fi - IP addresses of devices connected to a Wi-Fi network. The most cost-effective type of residential proxies.

  • Mobile - IP addresses of mobile devices connected to a 4G network. The most trusted by web resources.

Static proxies are IP addresses that come directly from Internet service providers and are not influenced by external factors. This absence of external factors guarantees IP an extended lifetime of up to 24 hrs.

Datacenter proxies are IP addresses of remote servers owned by data centers. These proxies are very cost-effective and ensure the highest network bandwidth, however, they can easily be traced back to the company or data center associated with them. However, SOAX does not provide data center proxies.
