Public Proxy Servers vs. Private Proxy Servers for Web Scraping

  • Availability: Public proxy servers keep shutting down quite often, so you need to develop algorithms to weed them off and update them almost every few minutes.
  • Reliability: Public proxy servers are used by thousands of developers and so slow down almost minutes after they are detected and become unresponsive
  • Speed: Public proxy servers are just individuals browsing, and you mostly don’t have any control over their connection plans
  • Security: It’s difficult to certain about whether the individual whose device is used as a proxy has given consent to use their bandwidth for free. In fact, in many cases, its hackers who have taken control of their connections and they might as quickly be logging all the information you send.
  • With millions of high speed rotating proxies located all over the world
