Why do I need proxies?

IP Address Management:

  • IP Rotation: Websites may have restrictions in place to prevent too many requests in a short period. Proxies allow you to rotate IP addresses, preventing your requests from being blocked or throttled.
  • Avoiding Detection: Using proxies helps distribute the scraping across multiple IP addresses which can make it harder for websites to detect and block your scraping activity.

Geo-Targeting and Localization:

  • Access to Geo-Restricted Content: Proxies can provide access to websites or content restricted to specific geo-locations by routing your requests through servers located in those regions. Oculus Proxies allows you to generate proxies to any country you need.

  • Scalability and Performance:
  • Scalability: With proxies you can scale your scraping by sending your requests across multiple IP addresses and servers vs just your own IP address.
  • Performance Optimization: Proxies allow you to choose a server in any country which can be closer to your target websites, this can help reduce latency and improving scraping speed.
