General FAQ

A proxy server is an intermediary server which comes between you and the website you want to access. While using a proxy server, the internet traffic you initiated will pass through the proxy server an then to the destination website. The destination website will return the results back to you through the proxy server. Why should use it in the first place if it only acts as an intermediator? A proxy server provide different levels of security, functions and privacy depending on what you need. Proxies can be used for a wide variety of use cases which include anonymous browsing, social media, scraping, etc.

The easiest way to use our proxies is with the FoxyProxy extension (for Chrome or Firefox). You can check out a short tutorial about this by accessing the following link: https://hydraproxy.com/how-to-use-foxyproxy/

Also, if you want to emulate other browsers and *better mask your connection*, you can use HydraHeaders: https://hydraproxy.com/how-to-use-hydraheaders/

For the moment, we do not have static residential or mobile IPs. Our networks can be set to use extended sticky IP sessions. Which, based on our research, is suited for most online tasks.

4G : AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon

Residential: Spectrum, Comcast and CentruryLink

Our *mobile network* has two rotation setups:
1) *30min auto IP rotation* – your proxy will rotate into a new IP at every 30 minutes.
2) *Extended rotation* – you’ll be allocated IPs with extended rotation periods that can last for *up to 6 hours*.

The *residential network* has two options:
1) *Request-based rotation* – your IP will rotate on each request of your browser/tool (such as page refresh).
2) *Sticky IP sessions* – you’ll get a sticky IP that can be used for up to one hour, which *you can change it on demand* sooner than its expiration time.
