# What is a static IP proxy?

When reading this article, I believe you have a preliminary understanding of proxy servers. So, please come with me to see what static IP proxies are and what they are.

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 static IP proxies, before getting to know them, please allow me to introduce static IP first.

# What is a static IP

A static IP address is also called a fixed IP address. It is an IP address assigned by an ISP (Internet provider) to a computer or network device for long-term use. With a static IP, you can directly connect to the internet without automatically obtaining a network address, and it is also less prone to IP conflicts. But the IP address on the computer needs to be manually set, and it is usually expensive.

# What is a proxy server

Before this, 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, 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.

# What is a static IP proxy

Static IP proxy refers to an agent whose IP address remains unchanged during the process of providing proxy services to you. This does not mean that you can have a fixed IP, but rather that they assign their IP to a proxy that their customers temporarily use. There are mainly two types:

# Static residential IP proxy

Residential IP proxy is a type of proxy that routes client requests through real devices with Internet functionality in people's homes. Because they utilize the IP addresses of these devices, it is usually difficult to detect them, thus reducing the occurrence of blocking. They are expensive and usually have limited bandwidth. (Note: In fact, residential agents are not all static IP agents, they also provide rotating residential IP agents - a type of dynamic IP agent)

# Static data center IP proxy

A data center proxy is a type of proxy that assigns the IP provided by a data center to its clients. They have a higher correlation with spam, making them easier to detect and subsequently block, and easier to generate. These proxy providers provide them with unlimited bandwidth.

It is the most common type of agent and also the cheapest agent on the market. Just like data center VPNs, their IP addresses also come from the data center. However, selling the IP and its ports to you will be powerless if any IP is blocked. Data center proxies are typically static IPs. They are easily detectable and not suitable for use on strict websites with detection proxy capabilities.

# Conclusion

Through this article, you have learned about static proxies. In fact, you can read more about dynamic proxies provided by us, so that you can have a more comprehensive understanding of proxies.
