What is the difference between sticky IP and rotating IP, and how to choose
by CoCo
2024-02-02

In modern network applications, the use of proxy IP is becoming more and more common. Among them, sticky IP and rotating IP are two common proxy IP types. This article will introduce the definition, difference, usage scenarios of these two proxy IP types and how to choose a high-quality proxy IP.


1. What are sticky IPs and rotating IPs


Sticky IP: Sticky IP refers to the same IP address being used repeatedly by the same user within a period of time. This type of proxy IP ensures that the user's identity is tied to the IP address, thereby reducing the possibility of being identified as a bot or malicious behavior by the target server.


Rotating IP: Rotating IP refers to the same user using different IP addresses in different time periods. This type of proxy IP can help users avoid being restricted by the target server and improve the access success rate.


2. The difference between sticky IP and rotating IP


Usage scenarios: Sticky IP is suitable for network activities that need to maintain the same IP address for a long time, such as web crawlers, social media marketing, etc. IP rotation is suitable for network activities that require frequent changes in IP addresses, such as online voting, multiple account logins, etc.


Security: Sticky IP is relatively safer because using the same IP address for a long time is not easily recognized as suspicious behavior by the target server. If the rotating IP is changed too frequently, it may be regarded as suspicious behavior by the target server, increasing the risk.


Access speed: For the same user, long-term use of sticky IP can reduce network jump time and increase access speed. IP rotation requires frequent changes of IP addresses, which may increase network jump time and affect access speed.


3. What are the usage scenarios of sticky IP and rotating IP?


Sticky IP is suitable for the following scenarios:


Web crawlers: Crawler programs need to visit the same website or data source for a long time. Using sticky IP can reduce the risk of being blocked.


Social media marketing: When conducting social media marketing, in order to improve account security and avoid being banned by the platform, sticky IP can be used to maintain the same IP address.


Rotating IP is suitable for the following scenarios:


Online voting: When conducting online voting, in order to avoid being identified as the same user by the organizer and blocking the IP address, you can use rotating IP to protect your real IP address.


Multiple account login: When logging in with multiple accounts, in order to avoid being recognized by the server as malicious behavior and blocking all accounts, you can use rotating IP to protect your real IP address.


4. How to choose a high-quality proxy IP


Stability: It is key to choose a proxy IP with high stability, otherwise it may affect the normal operation of network activities.

Speed: Choosing a proxy IP with fast speed and low latency can improve work efficiency and user experience.

Anonymity: Choosing a highly anonymous proxy IP can protect user privacy and security.

Regional distribution: Choosing a proxy IP with a wide regional distribution can meet the needs of users in different regions.

Security: Choosing a proxy IP with high security performance can reduce the risk of attack and leakage.


5. Summary


Sticky IP and rotating IP each have their own advantages and disadvantages, and they need to be selected according to specific usage scenarios. When selecting a proxy IP, multiple factors such as stability, speed, anonymity, regional distribution, and security need to be comprehensively considered to ensure the normal operation of network activities and the privacy and security of users. 


At the same time, you also need to pay attention to the reasonable use of proxy IP to avoid violations of laws and regulations and infringement of the rights of others.
