Sep 30, 2023 ยท 2 min read

iPRoyal offers residential proxies for web scraping, but with complex management and paying for traffic volumes. ProxiesAPI simplifies scraping with a single API call and unlimited bandwidth.

The Trouble with iPRoyal Residential Proxies

iPRoyal provides real residential IPs to avoid blocks while scraping. Helpful features include:

  • Millions of global residential IPs
  • City-level targeting
  • Sticky sessions
  • Auto-rotate
  • But there are downsides:

  • Must manage proxy rotation yourself
  • Pay for traffic usage, expires monthly
  • No built-in captcha solving
  • For basic scraping needs, all the proxy management overhead isn't worth it. A simpler API alternative is needed.

    ProxiesAPI - Scraping Made Simple

    ProxiesAPI reduces web scraping to a single API call:

    curl "<http://api.proxiesapi.com/?key=API_KEY&url=https://example.com>"

    One line returns the HTML of any webpage. Behind the scenes, ProxiesAPI handles:

  • Proxy Rotation - Each request uses a different proxy/IP. No blocks.
  • Browser Identities - Randomized user agents on every request.
  • Automatic Retries - Retries failed requests on new proxies automatically.
  • CAPTCHA Solving - Solves captchas behind the scenes.
  • Javascript Rendering - Returns fully loaded pages, not just HTML.
  • There's no proxy management needed. Just call the API to scrape any site.

    Plus, pricing is simple at $23/month for 250,000 requests with unlimited bandwidth.
