Proxy - a server that acts as an intermediary between the user and the necessary Internet resources. Its main task is to change IP.
The leading types of proxies are:
For efficient and secure surfing, the use of HTTP, HTTPS, and Socks are recommended. They are the most acceptable and safe for this type of activity.
The main task of the most common type of proxy is the correct organization of the high-quality work of browsers that use the TCP protocol.
HTTPS is similar to HTTP. The additional letter "S" defines “secure" (secured). The difference is confident support for a secure SSL connection.
Proxies are used to transmit classified information. Important: using this type - transmitted information can be intercepted. To increase the level of security of personal data, the HTTPS protocol is used. All traffic, in this case, is encrypted with an algorithm that is resistant to hacking.
Socks is the most efficient way to transfer information, allowing you to forward transparently, invisibly to both the client and the server.
There are two main types:
Socks do not moderate HTTP headers; they transmit accurate information, excluding IP address information. As anonymous as possible.
There are two ways to determine the type of proxy:
Choosing the first, the correct solution would be to use Proxy Helper, Checker type proxy. In the second option, it is important to learn how to distinguish the types of proxies visually.
Information about the type of proxy is very important. The quality and safety of further work on the network depends on it.
