With more than 220 servers at its disposal, it's no wonder that My Private Proxy claims its dominance in how it obtains web traffic. This immense server volume is coupled with more than 500 different locations around the United States and Europe and many more throughout the world. And with a variety of packages available to suit individual needs, My Private Proxy can fit any budget and serve anyone from anywhere.
For example, there are dedicated "My Private Prox" servers for use by one person or a small network of clients. Alternatively, there are "My Private Proxy 2" packages that make use of two or more anonymous servers and an entirely separate login page for each client. These packages can be more cost-effective when used by businesses or individuals with larger networks of clients. Some dedicated "My Private Prox" servers are also setup as a dummy site to hide personal IP addresses from certain individuals.
With one click of the mouse, anyone can visit My Private Proxy at any one of the numerous predefined web sites. These web sites make use of My Private Proxy's unique code to log the request from the end user, before passing it on to the correct remote proxy site. The resulting pages then receive the appropriate response from these proxy servers. As one example, when requesting information from a foreign location through My Private Proxy, the client's request is redirected through a proxy located in the country where the client is resident.
Also available in the marketplace are shared proxies. Shared proxies are extremely popular in social media marketing applications, as they make it easy to track the users of the social networking sites who are visiting a particular application. Shared proxies are configured to return a true internet protocol address (IP) whenever a request comes across it. This feature is highly useful for social media marketing companies that want to know the exact location of the visitors to their website.
There are many free anonymous proxies as well as paid proxy providers available online. Some free anonymous proxies are configured to use the regular proxy servers while others are configured to use the unique IP address format. Paid proxy providers often come bundled with a number of features like logging the request and passing it along to other users of My Private Prox. However, such programs can be rather limited in terms of the kinds of information that they can provide. For instance, most free proxy providers do not allow clients to see the logs of past visits.
Apart from tracking IP addresses, some proxy servers are also designed to perform other authentication protocols. Some of these protocols include HTML authentication, Digest Authentication, and Simple Authentication. In a way, all the three forms of authentication can be considered an extension of the traditional web-based login process. On the other hand, simple logging is another form of single proxy. In this mode of operation, the client computer receives requests coming from a variety of IP locations over the Internet. The log files are then converted to a standard HTML format.
Another option for private proxies is the use of multiple IP locations. In this option, the client computers are connected to different IP locations in the same network. This way, these locations will be able to establish their own virtual IP addresses and they will be able to access web sites based on the request they have received. Multiple IP locations can support a large number of requests simultaneously.
