Getting Started

This is by far the fastest way to start using Shared Datacenter Proxies. Make a request to using a Shared Datacenter proxy from a random location. Replace USERNAME and PASSWORD with your proxy user credentials. Keep in mind that each request returns a new IP address as Oxylabs Shared Datacenter Proxies rotate automatically.

Use to check the parameters of your IPs—this domain delivers information from four geolocation databases: MaxMind, IP2Location, DB-IP, and The parameters include IP address, provider, country, city, ZIP code, ASN, organization name, time zone, and meta (when disclosed by database).

curl -x -U "customer-USERNAME:PASSWORD"

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 -U "customer-USERNAME:PASSWORD"

What if you want to keep the same proxy for more than one request? Session control enables that. 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 give you the same proxy IP.

curl -x -U "customer-USERNAME-sessid-randomString123:PASSWORD"

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.
