Frequently asked questions

Can I choose IPs in specific locations?

Yes, we can allocate IPs based on the locations you choose. You can otherwise leave the automatic IP proxy rotation down to us wholly to us, where our proprietary algorithms will choose the best IPs to get you the successful requests.

How many proxies do you offer?

It’s in the order of hundreds of thousands. But we have reserves as well depending on the requirements of our customers. We grow the pool as needed.

Do you offer a free trial?

Yes. We offer a free trial of our smart rotating proxy service for 14 days or 10,000 requests (whichever comes first). Customers interested in an Enterprise Free Trial should contact us.

Can I cancel my subscription at any time?

Yes, you may cancel your subscription at any time

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.

How will dedicated residential proxies help my web scraping project?

Dedicated residential proxies are great at helping gather data from domains with stricter thresholds towards bots and tasks that require location-specific IPs. But not all web scraping projects need residential proxies. Most of the times smart rotating datacenter IP proxies work just the same and give the cost benefit. In these cases, all you need is a smart IP rotation service like Zyte Smart Proxy Manager.

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.
