This is by far the fastest way to start using Shared Datacenter Proxies. Make a request to
https://ip.oxylabs.io/locationusing a Shared Datacenter proxy from a random location. Replace
PASSWORDwith your proxy user credentials. Keep in mind that each request returns a new IP address as Oxylabs Shared Datacenter Proxies rotate automatically.
Use ip.oxylabs.io/location to check the parameters of your IPs—this domain delivers information from four geolocation databases: MaxMind, IP2Location, DB-IP, and IPinfo.io. The parameters include IP address, provider, country, city, ZIP code, ASN, organization name, time zone, and meta (when disclosed by database).
curl -x dc.pr.oxylabs.io:10000 -U "customer-USERNAME:PASSWORD" https://ip.oxylabs.io/location
curl -x dc.fr-pr.oxylabs.io:42000 -U "customer-USERNAME:PASSWORD" https://ip.oxylabs.io/location
What if you want to keep the same proxy for more than one request? Session control enables that. Add
sessid-abc12345to your username string, where
abc12345can 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 dc.pr.oxylabs.io:10000 -U "customer-USERNAME-sessid-randomString123:PASSWORD" https://ip.oxylabs.io/location
