Beginners may be confused about which proxies to buy because there are several types of proxies. We will consider each of them and choose the best one for your tasks.
These are special protocols through which all traffic of used IP addresses passes.
HTTPS encrypts information during its transmission and is backed by a secure SSL certificate. HTTP proxies, on the contrary, only change the IP address, and that's where their advantages end. They are suitable for basic tasks where privacy is not an issue.
SOCKS is a data transfer protocol that is used in work where HTTP/HTTPS is not applicable or where there is no default support for such proxy protocols. Data is transmitted as it is, without encryption.
To connect to any proxy we recommend to choose only SOCKS5, this protocol is considered the most reliable.
These are IP addresses provided by real ISPs and belong to regular users. Because algorithms link them to real customers, services tend to place a lot of trust in them and are less likely to fail on trust. Proxies, are linked to a physical address, which allows you to bypass any blocking.

These types of proxies are most often not applicable in affiliate marketing, they are not suitable for linking to accounts and are only suitable for other, less important tasks. We do not recommend to use them as most likely such proxies are already blacklisted and may even lead to data theft.
