Getting Started
This is by far the fastest way to start using Residential Proxies. You will make a request to https://ipinfo.io using a residential proxy from a random location through our Backconnect Entry. Don't forget to replace USERNAME and PASSWORD with your proxy user credentials.
curl -x pr.oxylabs.io:7777 -U "customer-USERNAME:PASSWORD" https://ipinfo.io
Let's make a request using a proxy from France. All you need to do is add cc-FR to your username string. Below is an example in cURL, and here you can find code samples in other languages.
curl -x pr.oxylabs.io:7777 -U "customer-USERNAME-cc-FR:PASSWORD" https://ipinfo.io
Here is another example of a request that goes through a proxy from London, United Kingdom. Adding cc-GB-city-london to the username string enables you to do just that. Click here to get more information on how to master city-level proxy targeting.
curl -x pr.oxylabs.io:7777 -U "customer-USERNAME-cc-GB-city-london:PASSWORD" https://ipinfo.io
What if you want to keep the same proxy for more than one request? Session control enables just that. Just add sessid-abc12345 to your username string, where abc12345 can be any random string, and as long as you keep sending requests with this string (session ID), we will try our best to give you the same proxy IP.

curl -x pr.oxylabs.io:7777 -U "customer-USERNAME-sessid-randomString123:PASSWORD" https://ipinfo.io
