Getting Started

Integrating Web Unblocker is easy, especially if you have previously used regular proxies for web scraping. The only difference is that we require you to ignore the SSL certificate using the -k or --insecure cURL flags (or an equivalent expression in the language of your choice).
To make a request using Web Unblocker, you need to use the unblock.oxylabs.io:60000 proxy endpoint. See a cURL example below. You can find code samples in other languages here or complete code examples on our GitHub.
curl -k -x unblock.oxylabs.io:60000 -U "USERNAME:PASSWORD" https://ip.oxylabs.io
Web Unblocker counts only the traffic of successfully extracted data. Failed scraping attempts won’t be included in your traffic usage calculation. Both upstream and downstream traffic is calculated.
If Web Unblocker is being used to scrape websites dependent on loading data via JavaScript, refer to the JavaScript rendering section. The product is not designed to be used with headless browsers (e.g., Chromium, PhantomJS, Splash, etc.) and their drivers (e.g., Playwright, Selenium, Puppeteer, etc.) directly.
