Are dedicated IP addresses like proxies?


James Hunt


Most types of proxies come in two forms: public and private proxies.

Private proxies give you a dedicated IP address that you can use exclusively. This means that the bandwidth and speed of connection are all yours to enjoy.

There are also public or free proxies that are accessible to everyone. Since hundreds or even thousands of people can be using the same server at a given time, using free proxies can slow down your connection speed. Furthermore, they are also unsafe as people with questionable intentions may also be using the same proxy server as you. You can end up getting banned even when you are not doing anything wrong.

In fact, studies have shown that free proxy services end up very costly in terms of security and privacy as most of them log your usage and identity.
