AstroProxy is a young residential proxy network, which has gained immaculate reputation over a little while and now is expanding rapidly. If provides quite a number of options for those who have good reasons to mask their real IP addresses and continue to work legally and profitably. 

The company offers solutions for online business persons, who need to ensure that they can get all needed information online and be sure they will not be blocked from accessing it. AstroProxy operates a good-sized network and provides the following types of proxies: 

  • Datacenter proxies offer pools of traditional IP addresses that are owned by hosting providers, yet are not connected to ISPs.
  • Residential proxies are rented by ISPs and assigned to homeowners. Actually  residential proxy is an IP assigned to a device owned by a homeowner, who allows other uses to connect to and route traffic via it.
  • Mobile proxies are actually mobile devices, whose owners allow other users to route traffic via these devices.

AstroProxy is well aware of the pluses and minuses of each of these options. We insist that residential IPs do have future. They are effective in terms of masking conventional IPs, because residential IPs are rented by ISPs and represent real users (homeowners) in different parts of the world. Once a user, who connects via a residential IP, visits a website, the residential IP-address (not the user’s main one) becomes visible for the website. Because the residential user is real, it won’t look suspicious to the website and won’t make them want to block it. This opens up quite a plethora of horizons for businesses. 


AstroProxy helps find real data 

There are quite a number of good reasons why businesses want to resort to residential IPs. Most businesses want to know more about their competitors. They have to do tons of browsing and make competitor websites feel suspicious about them. Websites tend to distrust datacenter IPs because they are notoriously popular among scams. Any user attempting to scrape data from a website via such an IP will be banned pretty soon.

Residential IPs do not cause any suspicions, providing that they are run by a reputable company and have not been abused. Any visit from a residential IP looks to websites like a real one, because they see real users’ IPs and therefore do not need to worry. Businesses can check as many websites as they need to dig information without fearing red flags. 

Security

Getting blocked by a competitor is frustrating, but not the worst thing yet. Scams can track your IP address, take time to check and learn your every move and steal your identity. You may end up with your IP stolen and used as a server for scam purposes. The worst-case scenario is your ruined reputation, because all nasty tricks will be carried out on your behalf. If you join AstroProxy, you will be able to connect to a new residential IP every day, so criminals won’t keep up with you.

Brand and Copyright protection

If you are running a business online, brand and copyright protection should be your number-one priority. Just like your competitors, you will want to ensure that no one captures your idea and implements it before you do. Therefore, it is no wonder that websites keep track of IPs visiting them (including yours). 

Also, residential IPs help to target counterfeit firms. To cover up tracks, these fraudulent firms block IPs that come from countries where manufacturers are headquartered and original goods are produced. This makes it hard to trace them and bring to justice. With a residential IP at hand it is possible to connect to a server located in such a country and secure your brand and/or intellectual property.

AstroProxy has all tools at hand, which can help you avoid the trouble. Residential IPs are among the safest ones, particularly those handled by reputable and conscientious providers. We guarantee full and complete protection of your brand and whatever copyright information you have in relation to your business.

Testing Foreign Software

If you are a business person and you have purchased an important application made by a company headquartered outside of your country, you may have difficulty testing its performance. Keeping all apps ticking properly is a must for any business. There are ways around the barrier: you can outsource an expert in the app’s home country or connect to an office in that country via a residential IP. The latter appears to be a quicker, easier and cheaper option. AstroProxy handles a huge network of residential IPs, so we will put you through to the app developer in a matter of minutes.

Saving

Many accommodation services and booking offices set prices that are discriminately different according to geographic location. Also, they offer discount to citizens of some countries. In this context, residential IPs open up numerous saving opportunities. In other words, a user can connect to a residential IP located in a region, where services are less expensive or discounted and save quite a bit of cash. 

Ad verification and marketing

Marketing and advertising are the two fundamental musts for everyone aiming for a success in an online business. Businesses need to be sure that every ad they place online is eventually viewed by the target audience. It is hardly a secret that there are guys who use high-tech tricks to use someone else’s ad and claim revenue for these without actually placing an ad. Not infrequently, scams redirect users from real pages to fake ones than present misleading or false information. 

If you want to be sure that your ad is visible to your target audience in another country, the best thing you can do is route your connection via a residential IP located in this country and view your ad. Also, you can check the work of local search engines by your website’s ranking. Finally, by connecting to a local residential IP, you can check your competitors’ marketing tactics and maybe get an understanding how to improve yours.

Staffing your business

Today, it is quite possible to find a gifted specialist in any location. Businesses are increasingly interested in employing qualified staff and building international teams, which has proved to be an effective tactics. However, many job sites use geolocation filters and block candidates from specific countries. 

A residential proxy pretty much solves the problem, as you can connect via a resident of the country, where the job site is hosted, and browse for an employee as if you were just another citizen of this country. With AstroProxy by your side, you can find and employ a savvy in less than a few minute in Germany, France, Russia, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Belarus.

Account management

To sell goods and services in social media, users have to market them properly. This may require running several accounts, which is not welcomed by social networking websites. If you try to market in social media using your main IP only, they will promptly reveal and red-flag you. Most social media use anti-bot tools, so using a bot won’t work either. 

A residential IP is quite a solution when it comes to masking your main IP and running your campaign from several accounts. If you apply to AstroProxy, we will pick up a network of residential IPs for you and make you look to these websites like a group of independent users. You will be able to run your marketing campaign without fearing a red flag.
