A Good Proxy Site - Do You Need to Pay for It?

There are a number of way to connect to proxies on the Internet. Web based proxies, using the manual proxy settings on your browser, or by using proxy software. There are paid as well as free sites available on the Internet, but as with any product, and especially with stuff available on the Internet, the question comes up - do I need to pay for it? There are many hacks, cracks, and other "work around" for stuff on the Internet, but this is not what I'm talking about. How does free proxy tools on the Internet compared to paid ones? Do I need to pay for a good proxy site?

It depends on what you're looking for. If this is a temporary solution to the problem of a blocked site on the network you're currently on, then the answer is no, you don't have to pay for it. The chances are that you just need to check something real quick, and pulling out your credit card to pay for a week or month subscription to a professional anonymous surfing site isn't going to be practical. Find a web based proxy on Google, and go. If you get caught amid all the Google Adwords advertisements, then add the word "blog" to your search, and more personal blog posts will come up. There are tons of tech blogs out There that frequently rate the top 5 or 10 free proxy sites.

If you have lots of time on your hand, again, the answer is that you don't have to pay for a good proxy site. The toughest thing about finding good proxies is that they frequently change. What works on one network, may not work on another. What works well today, might not be so great tomorrow. It's tough to get any consistency, and of course There's no guarantees because everything is free!

If you've got the time to keep up on the tech blogs, sift through the advertising crap on Google, test, pass, test, and then start again the next day, then go ahead. I know I presented that is a way that makes it seem unappealing - it is. I've done my fair share of research on proxies for my blog, so I know how annoying it is. But I'm an adult now, and I remember not worrying so much about burning an hour looking for proxies when I was in high school.

If you haven't go the time, and plan to use proxies to surf anonymously, unblock sites, or keep your privacy online over a long period of time, or frequently, then yes, you do have to pay for a good proxy site. There are paid versions of software, as well as web based proxies. Everyone is happy to take your money, so finding paid proxy services is much easier, and can be as simple as clicking on some advertisements, searching for cheap proxies in Google, or searching for the "best" proxy. My advice is to check out some reviews beforehand to make sure that you're getting some bang for your buck.
