Mobile IPs for Companies: the Must-Ask Questions
Corporate IPs are not welcomed by websites, and they often block and/or cloak them. As a result, website visitors either cannot see wrong data or none at all. Corporate cliennts are often misled this way. Particularly, they may see a price on a website, which is far from the real one. A mobile IP can help you overcome the barrier and get true information.
Most proxies are served from data centers. It is quite easy to identify an IP, which comes from such a center, as a bot, and cloak/block it. It is a common problem for those who need to find important information.
Using a mobile proxy instead of a traditional one is a great solution. VPN companies provide IPs, which ensure easy access to the Internet from any part of the world. Those who access websites via such IPs, see the real data, because these websites do not have an opportunity to block real users.
If you have decided to use one, you should make a little research and ask your would-be provider a few questions. You should have a good reason to trust the organization to run your information via a personal IP. Finally, you need to ascertain that the IP owner would not object to your using of their mobile IPs.
Disclaimer: Airsocks specializes in providing users and companies around the globe with IPs to ensure fair branding, pricing, advertisement, etc.
1. Where do mobile IPs come from?
You: where does the company get proxies and how does it ensure that users would agree to provide their IPs? There are conscientious and reputable providers, who seek an IP holder’s permission prior to using the IP. However, there are unethical ones, who access devices illegally and without users’ knowledge.
Airsocks: we have built strong partnership relationships with operators of web applications. The operators access their IPs providing that. This works even better than charging subscriptions or advertising.
2. Do you have lots of IPs?
The greater number of available IPs a provider has, the less likely it is that an IP will be detected and cloaked/blocked. The number of proxies is directly proportional to a level of anonymity.
It is also important to know how many mobile IPs the provider has in a particular country, region or city. There should be a sufficient number of IPs for users to rotate them from time to time and ensure anonymity. The fewer IPs there are in a city, the easier it is to identify one.
Firms, which use several IPs simultaneously (concurrency), show higher performance.
You: how many servers per city and/or country do you provide? In how many countries and cities? Do you ensure high concurrency?
Airsocks: we are running over 30 million IPs in all countries and cities, and we continue to expand. For everyone, who needs a proxy, Airsocks maintains unlimited concurrency and therefore guarantees the fastest connection.
3. Do you support HTTPS?
Every time you use a proxy for business (or not) of any type, you run all your data (sensitive or not) via the server. Whoever owns the server, he or she can access your data.
You: do you provide encrypted protocols like HTTPS or similar ones? Is it possible to prevent interception and any unauthorized use of private and/or sensitive information?
4. How do you ensure proper handling of IPs?
You: would it be possible for a provider to be sure that the service is operated properly, and there is no abuse? How high or low is the rotation level? How available is a dedicated mobile proxy?
Airsocks: We ensure that every individual goes through a Know Your Customer video session, so that every user will buy a mobile proxy on a legal basis and are not going to do harm to themselves or anyone else. IPs are rotated all the time. Also, groups of IPs located in the same area are available for exclusive purposes.
