Using SOCKS Protocol

Dedicated and semi-dedicated proxies support SOCKS protocol.

For some websites and use-cases, you may need to switch from HTTP/HTTPS and instead use SOCKS protocol. We offer SOCKS protocol to assist with these specific use-cases. When using SOCKS, you are only able to use IP authorization as we currently do not offer username/password for SOCKS protocol. 

 

1.) Login to your proxy dashboard here

2.) On the right side of the proxy dashboard home page,  select "Via IP" under Authorization Type and then select SOCKS.

 

 

3.) If you have not already authorized your IP, please proceed to authorize your IP.  f you do not know how to authorize your IP you may simply follow this video guide here.
