The difference between rotating ISP proxies and dynamic residential proxies
by CoCo
2024-01-31

With the popularity of the Internet, the use of proxy servers has become more and more common. Proxy servers can help users hide their real IP addresses, increase network speed, filter ads, etc. 


Among them, rotating ISP proxy and dynamic residential proxy are two common proxy methods. This article will explore the differences between these two types of representation.


1. Rotate ISP proxy


Rotating ISP proxy is a proxy method that obtains different IP addresses by constantly changing ISP (Internet Service Provider). When users use rotating ISP proxy, they need to set the addresses of multiple ISP proxy servers. When one IP address is used up, the proxy software will automatically switch to another IP address.


advantage


(1) Multiple different IP addresses can be obtained to improve anonymity and privacy protection;

(2) The risk of a single IP address being blocked can be avoided;

(3) You can use multiple ISP networks at the same time to increase network speed.


shortcoming


(1) It is necessary to manually set the addresses of multiple ISP proxy servers, which is troublesome;

(2) If an ISP proxy server is blocked, the user needs to search for other available ISP proxy servers;

(3) Due to the need to constantly change IP addresses, it may have a certain impact on network stability.


2. Dynamic residential agency


Dynamic residential proxy is a proxy method that obtains a dynamic IP address through proxy software on your home or personal computer. When using a dynamic residential proxy, users only need to set the address of a proxy server, and the proxy software will automatically obtain the dynamic IP address from the server.


advantage


(1) You only need to set up a proxy server address, which is more convenient;

(2) A new IP address can be obtained automatically without manual replacement;

(3) Since it is a proxy software on your home or personal computer, privacy can be better protected.


shortcoming


(1) Because it is a dynamic IP address, the anonymity and privacy protection may not be as good as a static IP address;

(2) If the proxy server is restricted, the user needs to change to other available proxy servers;

(3) Since it is an agent software on your home or personal computer, it may affect the network speed.


3. The main difference between rotating ISP proxy and dynamic residential proxy


Proxy source: Rotating ISP proxy is provided by multiple ISPs (Internet Service Providers), from which users can choose different ISPs for proxy. Dynamic residential proxies, on the other hand, are provided by independent residential proxy service providers.


It is recommended to use lunaproxy, which provides 200 million proxy resources covering 195+ regions around the world. It is suitable for various business scenarios and is one of the most reliable proxy service providers.


Service scope: Rotating ISP proxy is mainly used to optimize network performance and user experience as part of the ISP basic service. Dynamic residential agency covers a wider range of service areas, including but not limited to online advertising, content distribution, network monitoring, etc.


IP address acquisition method: When using a rotating ISP proxy, users can obtain multiple different IP addresses to improve anonymity and privacy protection. Dynamic residential proxies obtain dynamic IP addresses through proxy software on your home or personal computer.


Network stability: Since rotating ISP proxies requires constantly changing IP addresses, network stability may be affected to a certain extent. Dynamic residential proxies may affect network speed because they are proxy software on your home or personal computer.


Privacy Protection: Dynamic Residential Proxy provides better privacy protection because it is a proxy software on your home or personal computer. And the privacy protection of rotating ISP proxies may not be as good as dynamic residential proxies.


3. Conclusion


To sum up, rotating ISP proxies and dynamic residential proxies each have their own pros and cons. Users can choose the agent method that suits them according to their own needs. 


If you need better anonymity and privacy protection, you can choose a rotating ISP proxy; if you just need the convenience of using a proxy server, you can choose a dynamic residential proxy. 


No matter which method you choose, you need to pay attention to preventing cyber attacks and protecting the security of personal information.
