How Helpful A Web Proxy Can Be?

Sep 10, 2008
Proxy is actually a server which performs as a middleman among a client, internet and you. We send our request to a proxy server, then the server forwards it to the web and then proxy reverts back to you.

There are five types of proxies:
1. Web proxy.
2. Forced proxy.
3. Anonymous proxy.
4. Open proxy.
5. Caching proxy.

The basic purpose of any proxy as discussed above is that, it will help you maintain your privacy like your IP address but it also helps in accessing certain areas on the network that might be blocked to you, example in work place, libraries, schools etc.

But the web based proxies are undoubtedly the best; they have an edge on the other ones. Web proxies are the most commonly used proxies these days. First of all, web proxies provide a fast track way in efficiently distributing network traffic in real time. They certainly help the users in making their browsing lightening fast and safe too, so it obviously becomes their first choice.

The next best thing about these web proxies is that they are developed as such that they can easily avoid censors. Some internet service providers might not allow some users, but with use of web based proxy servers it's no longer a problem.

One of the best things about these proxies is that they have an in built feature that makes them act as a firewall. It is always recommended to surf the web with the support of these proxy servers. They ensure you that you're IP, your ID and more importantly you are safe from the hackers.

As a kind advice for people who are blocked in attempting to surf some web pages, we might tell them that they should try to search such proxies that can't be traced by the censors. We further recommend that you should rather find your own common proxy port numbers as well as proxy, this will enable you hassle free, fast and safe web access.

This is a hard fact about the public proxies that their numbers are not laudable, but in contrast to the public proxies there are ample of private proxy servers, that are available to you in the form of concentrators, gateways for managing outside traffic.

So never ever be afraid of hackers when you are surfing through a web based proxy server. Your peace of mind and connectivity quality is 100% guaranteed with these web based servers; you can now rely on these servers for your peace of mind and better performance too.
