Getting Started
This is by far the fastest way to start using Shared Datacenter Proxies. Make a request to https://ip.oxylabs.io using a Shared Datacenter proxy from a random location. Don't forget to replace USERNAME and PASSWORD with your proxy user credentials.
curl -x dc.pr.oxylabs.io:10000 -U "customer-USERNAME:PASSWORD" https://ip.oxylabs.io
Let's make a request using a proxy from France. All you need to do is change the entry point address. Below is an example in cURL, and here you can find all available country entry points.
curl -x dc.fr-pr.oxylabs.io:42000 -U "customer-USERNAME:PASSWORD" https://ip.oxylabs.io
What if you want to keep the same proxy for more than one request? Session control enables 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 dc.pr.oxylabs.io:10000 -U "customer-USERNAME-sessid-randomString123:PASSWORD" https://ip.oxylabs.io
To find out your usage statistics, generated traffic, request count, and more, please log in to the Dashboard. You can also add proxy users (sub-users) and track their statistics separately.
