Proxy API FAQ

Bright Data's Proxy API is a powerful tool that allows you to interact with and control your Bright Data proxies programmatically. This means you can automate tasks such as creating, updating, or deleting proxy ports.

The proxy API works by sending HTTP requests to specific endpoints, each of which corresponds to a different function. The Proxy API is designed to be flexible and easy to use, making it a valuable tool for managing your Bright Data proxies efficiently and effectively.

An API Gateway and a Proxy serve different purposes in the network architecture.

An API Gateway is a server that acts as an intermediary for requests from clients seeking resources from other services. It handles protocol translations and other tasks to connect different parts of a network. It's particularly useful in microservices architecture where it can route requests to the appropriate service.

On the other hand, a Bright Data Proxy is a server that acts as an intermediary for requests from clients seeking resources from other servers. It allows you to make requests from different IP addresses, providing anonymity and the ability to bypass geo-restrictions. It's a powerful tool for web scraping, data mining, and other tasks where you need to access data from different locations or maintain anonymity.

API proxies in Bright Data are commonly used in several scenarios:

1. Web Data Extraction: Bright Data's proxies can be used to extract data from websites across the globe. This is particularly useful for businesses that need to gather data for market research, competitor analysis, price comparison, and more.

2. Ad Verification: Advertisers use Bright Data's proxies to verify their ads are displayed correctly in different regions, on different platforms, and are not being defrauded by bots.

3. Brand Protection: Companies use Bright Data's proxies to ensure their brand is being represented correctly across the globe. They can check if their products are being sold at the correct price, if their intellectual property is being misused, and more.

4. Travel Fare Aggregation: Travel agencies and fare aggregators use Bright Data's proxies to gather data from various airlines, hotels, and car rental services. They can check prices from different regions and ensure they are providing the best deals to their customers.

5. SEO Monitoring: SEO companies use Bright Data's proxies to monitor search engine rankings in different regions and on different platforms.

These are just a few examples. The use cases for Bright Data's proxies are vast and varied, depending on the specific needs of the business.

Creating an API proxy with Bright Data involves a few steps:

2. Once you have an account, you can access the Bright Data dashboard. Here, you can manage your proxies, monitor your usage, and more.
3. To create an API proxy, you need to navigate to the 'Proxy Manager' section of the dashboard. Here, you can create and manage your proxies.
4. Click on 'Add a new proxy', and select the type of proxy you want to create (Residential, Datacenter, or Mobile).
5. After selecting the type of proxy, you can configure the settings for your proxy. This includes the port, IP type, and more.
