What type of proxies to use for Eclipse

It is suggested to purchase private proxies from Proxy-Seller for use with Eclipse. Private proxies provide better performance and longevity compared to public ones as they are exclusive to one user. The IP addresses offered by Proxy-Seller support multiple protocols including HTTP, HTTPS, and Socks5, making them suitable for use with the development environment. They also feature fast communication channels of up to 1 Gbps and a large pool of geolocations spread across over 100 countries. With 500 networks and 1000 subnets, a wide range of IPs can be obtained.
