Some important points when using a proxy2016-09-20proxy analyst
Before you begin to review what influences the operation speed of proxy, we note that the difference between the concepts of a proxy and a proxy server is insignificant: the first term refers to the script, which is installed on the server by connecting to the graphical interface or without it. When a user wants to go to a specific resource access to which (for various reasons) is denied for him, he can access it through a proxy server – a kind of intermediary between users and websites on the Internet network. Implemented mechanism in the automatic mode directs all requests from a personal computer or other gadget on the proxy server, where they are converted and then redirected to the requested Internet resource.
Tendencies and prospects of proxies' development2016-01-30proxy analyst
In order to create a more or less plausible forecast for the future of proxy we will need to determine the time and the reason of their occurrence. First proxy servers appeared almost simultaneously with the creation of Internet. This happened due to the fact that in its early days of development there was a need to own an external IP (a unique address that identifies the workstation in the general set of computers) to become a member of Internet community. IP addresses were very expensive at that time and in order to avoid buying external IP for a single computer, many users rented one channel which was granted by a provider.

It is sometimes necessary to use a proxy to preserve anonymity while surfing the Web.

At the same time we pointed out that own shared proxy server can help solving this problem. Using the shared proxy server that acts as a hub to process the outgoing and incoming data, the encryption process can be controlled and users can protect confidential information including their location.
Legal and illegal proxies (botnet proxies)2016-01-26proxy analyst
While considering the free proxy advantages and disadvantages we knowingly did not pay attention to the nominal division into legal and illegal proxies. The first adjective that comes to mind when speaking about "anonymizer" is "illegal", but it is not fully correct.

For example using proxy server can sometimes protect corporate information from internal and external intruders.
