Try Zyte API
Go beyond standard proxy management
We recommend our new product Zyte API if you need to go beyond standard proxy management and don’t need a proxy interface. Zyte API can use different kinds of proxies and browser configurations when needed to automatically extract data from any website.

Why is Smart Proxy Manager becoming Zyte API?
Smart Proxy Manager has been integrated into a better scraping product called Zyte API.

I already have proxies. How will Zyte Smart Proxy Manager help me on top of what I'm already doing?
Smart Proxy Manager (formerly Crawlera) is focused on delivering successful responses without any hassle for the end-user. The internal algorithm deals with bans, manages multiple proxy providers, rotates proxies and handles throttling automatically, among other features. It allows your technical team to focus on data only and not proxies.
Can I use Smart Proxy Manager with my own crawler without using Scrapy, Scrapy Cloud or any other Zyte service?
Definitely. Smart Proxy Manager is a standalone service that can be used with any crawler or HTTP client, independently of the rest of the Zyte platform.
What are proxies?
When you start extracting data from the web on a small scale you might not need proxies to make successful requests and get the data. But, as you scale your project because you need to extract more records or more frequently, you will experience issues. Or the site you're trying to reach might display different content depending on the region. So these are the two cases when you need to start using a proxy solution. Learn more about proxies here.
