The IP2Proxy™ Proxy Detection Web Service is a hosted Web Service that allows instant detection of anonymous proxy, VPN, TOR exit nodes, search engine robots (SES) and residential proxies (RES) by IP address. It is a REST API supporting both JSON and XML responses and provides IP location lookup information when a proxy is detected.

You can protect your site and web application by filtering detected anonymous proxy, TOR users at first glance.

Overview

All successful HTTP or HTTPS requests will return a response code of 200, together with the proxy lookup information. Error code will be returned if an error occurred.

Each unit of package purchase entitles you to 10,000 query credits. If you need more credits, please add multiple units during checkout. Total credits will be the number of units purchased multiplied by 10,000. However, please note that only one unique API key will be given for each user account, even if multiple units are purchased. If you need a different API key, you should sign up using a different email account.

IP2Proxy™ web service is a RESTful API call for anonymous proxy detection. The REST API supports both HTTP GET or HTTPS GET. You can test this REST API easily using a web browser with the below syntax.

api.ip2proxy.com/?ip={IP_ADDRESS}&key={YOUR_API_KEY}&package={PACKAGE}&format={FORMAT}

  • No database to download, to install or to upgrade in the server-side
  • Supports 4 different types of package queries with a different granularity of data.
  • Supports HTTP or HTTPS queries up to 10,000 times or 1 year (whichever comes first)

Proxy Type Description Anonymity
VPN Anonymizing VPN services. These services offer users a publicly accessible VPN for the purpose of hiding their IP address. High
TOR Tor Exit Nodes. The Tor Project is an open network used by those who wish to maintain anonymity. High
DCH Hosting Provider, Data Center or Content Delivery Network. Since hosting providers and data centers can serve to provide anonymity, the Anonymous IP database flags IP addresses associated with them. Low
PUB Public Proxies. These are services that make connection requests on a user\'s behalf. Proxy server software can be configured by the administrator to listen on some specified port. These differ from VPNs in that the proxies usually have limited functions compare to VPNs. High
WEB Web Proxies. These are web services that make web requests on a user\'s behalf. These differ from VPNs or Public Proxies in that they are simple web-based proxies rather than operating at the IP address and other ports level. High
SES Search Engine Robots. These are services that perform crawling or scraping to a website, such as, the search engine spider or bots engine. High
RES Residential proxies. These services offer users proxy connections through residential ISP with or without consents of peers to share their idle resources.
Only available with PX10
