# What is dynamic IP proxy?

Please follow us to see what dynamic IP proxies are! Not only can you learn relevant concepts here, but you can also gradually understand the benefits it brings as you delve deeper into the article.

According to the nature of IP address allocation, it can be divided into static IP addresses and dynamic IP addresses. As this article mainly discusses dynamic IP proxy, before getting to know it, please allow me to introduce dynamic IP first.

# What is dynamic IP?

Dynamic IP is opposite to static IP, it is not a real IP, but an address automatically assigned by the server. The so-called dynamic refers to randomly assigning an IP address every time you go online. Due to the valuable nature of IP address resources, most users use dynamic IP addresses when accessing the internet. But dynamic IP may cause IP conflicts, resulting in inability to access the internet.

# What is dynamic IP proxy?

Before that, you need to understand that it is a proxy server. A proxy server is an intermediate server between a computer and the Internet. When using proxies, the requests you send to the website will pass through them before reaching the website, acting as firewalls to help you access restricted data and hide your IP.

Dynamic IP proxy refers to the IP address of an agent that rotates and changes during the process of providing proxy services to you. This is opposite to static IP proxy. Typical dynamic IP proxies include rotating proxy (dynamic forwarding proxy) and mobile proxy, which will be introduced separately below.

# Rotate Proxy

Rotating proxy is a type of proxy that is automatically responsible for IP rotation. They change the IP address assigned to your connection and generate a brand new session for you based on some defined criteria - this can be based on each request, specific duration, or even status code.

Simply put, the rotation proxy provides you with a single entry port, from which you will be assigned a random IP to use, which will change after each request or defined time period.

# What is the purpose of a rotation proxy?

One of the main advantages of rotating proxies is that IP rotation is automatic, and you don't need to use many proxies to perform tasks online.

Rotating proxies are most suitable for crawling from the web. Rotating proxies are not good for websites that require session maintenance, except for maintaining them for a period of time before changing the session.

Therefore, high conversion proxies that change on request are not good for social media automation, sniper copying, and other session sensitive projects.

# Mobile Agent

Mobile proxy is a type of proxy server that routes web requests from its clients through mobile devices connected to cellular networks. Basically, mobile agents use IP addresses dynamically assigned to mobile devices by mobile network operators (MNOs) acting as their Internet service providers (ISPs).

MNO is unable to obtain the required IP address that matches the number of users they have. In this case, it is impossible to have a static mobile IP and available IPs must be shared among subscribers, with an IP address being shared among many subscribers.

They are also known as 4G agents. A dedicated 4G mobile agent works like a regular rotating agent, rotating every few minutes. Therefore, using 4G proxies will give you dynamic mobile IPs, and the practice of dynamically allocating IPs makes it difficult for mobile IPs to block.

# Conclusion

Through this article, you have learned about the relevant knowledge of dynamic proxies. In fact, you can also read the relevant knowledge about static proxies we provide, so that you can have a more comprehensive understanding of proxies.
