Title: Why proxies always die quickly
Post by: Terry on January 02, 2006, 05:53:02 AM
When you use a proxy, you are using the resource on the proxy server such as its CPU and memory. If too many people use the same proxy, the proxy server will exceed its limited load and go down. If a proxy can be found easily, it usually dies very fast.

You should check whether the proxies are still working before using them. Our software can help you to test and use the proxies.

For Socks Proxy: http://www.socksproxychecker.com

You can buy checked HTTP Proxy (http://www.eliteproxyswitcher.com/buyproxy.php) or Socks Proxy (http://www.socksproxychecker.com/buysocks5proxy.html) from us.

That certainly could be one reason, but the constant testing of these lists by hundreds of thousands of people day end and day out would be a bigger one.

The people who post proxy lists, pretty much all leech them from the same sources (each other mostly).  They all post them to several forums like this one, and the people who wish to use them test them repeatedly.  

Few proxies are operational 24/7, so some proxies that appear to be "dead" aren't in reality.  They just aren't non-functional at the time of your test or desire to use them.

Hey, thanks for this info - Im still learning about proxes here.. So where is recommended to get a good list of level 1 or 2 anonymous proxies? I tried hidemyass.com but they are all 'dead' and they only sent them to me a few hours ago. Hope you can help! Clare :-)
