IPs assigned by Yiluproxy can be divided into two categories: static IP address and dynamic IP address. This article mainly explains the two types of proxy IP in Yiluproxy and the differences between them. You can also clearly see the regional division of static IP proxy and dynamic IP proxy in the client of Yiluproxy, which makes it fast to find the proxy type according to our own needs.
What is a static IP?
A static IP, also known as a fixed IP, is an IP address assigned to a computer or network device by an Internet provider (ISP) for a long time. With a static IP, you can directly connect to the Internet with manual settings. Generally, only professional servers or secondary routers use a static IP, and the price is relatively expensive.
What is a static IP proxy?
The IP address provided by the proxy service provider for the user is fixed and will not change, but the ownership of this proxy IP does not belong to the customer. The proxy just temporarily assigns the IPs in its proxy IP pool to users.
What is a dynamic IP?
Relative to a static IP, a dynamic IP is not a real IP, but an address automatically assigned by the server. When the network is reconnected, an IP address will be randomly assigned . However, because most users use dynamic IP addresses to surf the Internet, dynamic IPs conflicts may occur.
What is a dynamic IP proxy?
The IP address assigned to the user by the proxy service provider will change, usually by rotation. That is, when the user extracts the IP from the proxy service provider's proxy IP pool, if the current IP cannot be connected, it will be automatically changed to the next IP that can be connected to the internet normally according to the rules.
Comparison of static IP proxy and dynamic IP proxy
The features of static IP proxy
1.Fast connection: Since static IPs are generally provided by data center rooms, the static IP proxies assigned tend to perform better and faster.
2.More stable: All static IP addresses are stable. Compared with dynamic IPs, they do not fail or change frequently. Even if you need to often disconnect and reconnect, the same IP address remains.
3.Accurate targeting: Since static IP addresses are very accurate in terms of geolocation data, they can be precisely matched to IP addresses and their physical locations.
The features of dynamic IP proxy
1.Lower cost: Due to the limited number of static IPs, the price is relatively high. Since dynamic IPs can be recycled, it is more cost-effective to use dynamic IPs.
2.Convenient to use: The server will automatically assign an available dynamic IP address to the device, which is very suitable for business needs such as testing or crawling.
3.More secure: Every time a user logs in, a new IP address is assigned to the device. So the dynamic IP is more difficult to track than a static IP, and third parties cannot accurately obtain the location information.
The differences between static IP and dynamic IP in Yiluproxy pool
The static IPs in the Yiluproxy are all accelerated by the own proxy engine of Yilu software. Therefore, whether it is a shared static IP or a dedicated static IP, you cannot use it while turning off the Yiluproxy software.
The dynamic IPs in the Yiluproxy are rotating assigned and accelerated by the transit server. Whether it is a rotating residential IP or a rotating datacenter IP, you can use dynamic IPs while turning off the Yiluproxy software.
