A proxy is a "substitute who stands in for or represents another," according to a dictionary definition. In the world of the Internet, a proxy is an IP address that you can use while browsing the web while also masking your current IP address.
Residential proxies have real IP addresses and appear to servers as real machines, which is a benefit. Any proxy on this list that uses an IP address that is connected to an actual Internet-connected device is deemed residential. Because the IP addresses utilised are legitimate, these servers are more difficult to detect.
Proxy servers help users and web servers communicate more easily by simplifying web requests and responses. A user typically accesses a website by submitting a direct request to its web server via their IP address from a web browser. The web server then returns to the user with a response containing the website data.
