Web Proxy VS HTTP Proxy

Web proxy has encryption functions but it can’t support many sites. HTTP proxy is faster than web proxy and support all the sites. But it has no encryption.

Web proxy and HTTP proxy are two common methods for anonymously browsing. Many people use them to hide their real IP and protect online privacy. However, which one is faster, more reliable, and better for surfing?

Web Proxy

Using a web proxy is the easiest way to hide IP. A web proxy is a website with an address bar. Just input the URL of the blocked site into that bar and click the “Surf” button. Web proxy will fetch the web page for you showing on its own site. You can try our web proxy here.

Web Proxy

HTTP Proxy

HTTP proxy is an IP: Port pair (ex. 23.145.98.5:3128). All the browsers (Chrome, Firefox, IE, Safari, and others) support the proxy option. When you set a proxy in the browser, the proxy will fetch the web pages for your browser. The websites regard the IP of proxy as your IP so it cannot trace your real IP.

Http Proxy List

Proxy Compatibility

Web proxy has problems with flash and javascript. With some special code, some web proxies manage to support some video websites. But if a website uses javascript heavily, web proxy can’t support it usually.

For that reason, some web proxies have to redirect users to the mobile/lite version of Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, Hotmail, and yahoo mail. Web proxy can’t support the full functions of them.

In contrast, HTTP proxy supports all the websites perfectly. It’s because HTTP proxy is the built-in function of the browser while web proxy is a website to simulate a proxy server.

Loading Speed

Web proxy needs to rewrite all the links of pages. It parses the Html, style, and script files of pages then rewrite all the links. It takes much time to do that. HTTP proxy doesn’t modify the pages. It only fetches pages for the browser so it’s much faster than a web proxy.

Moreover, web proxy is usually written in PHP or CGI which is slower than C/C++. Most HTTP proxy is written in C/C++ so it’s faster.

Encryption

HTTP proxy only fetches the pages for the browser. It can’t modify the pages so it can’t encrypt the traffic. In contrast, web proxy can encrypt the URLs as well as the pages. There may be a problem if you enable page encryption. With URL encryption, you can bypass most firewalls.

Enhanced Proxy

HTTP proxy is faster than web proxy and compatible with all the websites. But it doesn’t have encryption function so it can’t bypass the firewall with content filtering.

My IP Hide

Our service My IP Hide is an enhanced proxy service. It adds the encryption function into HTTP proxy service. It can set the proxy options of your browser automatically. You need not do any settings for your browser. My IP Hide has all the advantages of web proxy and HTTP proxy. It’s the best method for anonymously surfing.

Public Proxy VS Private Proxy

There are 2 types of proxy, public proxy and private proxy. Public proxy is open to public usage. Private proxy is only open to paid users.

There are two types of proxy, public proxy and private proxy. Public proxy is open to public usage. Private proxy is only open to paid users.

Public Proxy

Public proxy as known as open proxy is open to public usage. Every one can use it. Because of the lack of access control, the public proxy may be used by too many people. It makes the public proxy stop working if the number of users exceeds its capability. If a public proxy can be found easily on the Internet, it will die very fast. However it will work again when less people use it. Thus public proxy is usually unstable.

Though public proxy can usually keep working for only several hours, it has its advantages. You can find and use them for free. There are lots of public proxies on the Internet. You can use them to change your IP frequently. If you don’t know how to find them by yourself, you can buy our checked public proxy list. We update our public proxy list every day and check them from time to time. It ensures there are enough working proxies in the list.

Private Proxy

Private proxy is only open to paid users. You need to pay for the private proxy. It has good uptime. You usually need to input username and passord to use private proxy. The private proxy vendors control how long you can use their private proxy.

Socks Proxy VS HTTP Proxy

A post about the difference between socks proxy and HTTP proxy, how to get, check and use socks proxy or HTTP proxy.

There are two types of proxy, socks proxy and HTTP proxy. When we say “proxy” or “proxy server” without the type, we are usually meaning HTTP proxy.

HTTP Proxy

The most proxies we find on the Internet are HTTP proxy. HTTP stands for HyperText Transfer Protocol which is used in surfing. It means HTTP proxy is used for surfing in browsers.

Http Proxy List

HTTP proxy may be configured to either reveal or hide the end user’s IP address, depending on the administrator’s preference. Proxy Anonymity is determined by whether or not the proxy reveals your real IP address.

There are three levels of HTTP proxy according to the anonymity.

Highly Anonymous Proxy (Level 1): The web server can’t detect whether you are using a proxy by the information your browser sent.
Anonymous Proxy (Level 2): The web server knows that you are probably using a proxy, but it can’t detect your real IP.
Transparent Proxy (Level 3): The web server knows that you are using a proxy and it can also detect your real IP address.

Socks Proxy

Socks proxy is a versatile proxy for all your Internet usage while the HTTP proxy can only be used for surfing. You can use socks proxy to send email, transfer files, chat online, play games as well as surf websites.

Socks Proxy List

There are two versions of socks proxy: version 4 and 5, as known as socks4 and socks5. Socks5 supports UDP (VOIP needs it), name resolution, and authentication while Socks4 not. However, in most cases, you won’t use those features. Then Socks4 is same as Socks5.

Difference between Socks and HTTP Proxy

Socks proxy supports high anonymity and HTTPS (secure HTTP) naturally. All the socks proxies are highly anonymous. Every socks proxy support HTTPS websites (such as Paypal). You can hardly find HTTP proxies supporting both high anonymity and HTTPS.

There are two shortcomings of socks proxies. 1) Socks proxies are much less than HTTP proxies. 2) Fewer programs support socks proxy than HTTP proxy.

Use Socks Proxy and HTTP Proxy

Because proxies die fast, you need to check them before using them. You can use the free edition of our software Socks Proxy Checker or Elite Proxy Switcher to check the socks proxy or HTTP proxy.

Most browsers support both socks proxy and HTTP proxy. Double click the socks proxy or HTTP proxy in Socks Proxy Checker or Elite Proxy Switcher to set it as the active proxy for your browsers (IE, Chrome, and Firefox). Please read this post if you want to use socks proxy in other programs besides browsers.
