GEO Location Targeting

Sometimes when you are browsing or using your proxies you might want to nominate the location you are browsing from. For example when accessing an international bank account for security reasons you might want to access the account from the country it is held in.  

You can do this with our Premium GEO Residential service with a few simple tweaks to your username. 

Country targeting

You can target a country by adding the parameter  country-countrycode (replace with a country code to your desire) when authenticating (so when you are prompted to enter your username and password)

Username username-country- HK
FireFox Example



cURL Example curl -x premium.residential.proxyrack.net:10000 \
-U username-country-HK    http://example.com

Additional Examples

  • France: username-country-FR
  • United States: username-country-US

City Targeting

You can target a city by adding the parameter  country-countrycode-city-nameofcity (replace country code and city to your desire) when authenticating.

Username username-country- US-city-NewYork
*Note that all spaces in the name must be removed for it to match
FireFox Example 

cURL Example curl -x premium.residential.proxyrack.net:10000 \
-U username-country-US-city-NewYork http://example.com

Additional Examples

  • Paris: username-country-FR-city-Paris
  • London: username-country-GB-city-London


ISP Targeting

With the Premium Residential service you also have the ability to target granularly down to an Internet Service Provider (ISP) by adding the parameter country-countrycode-isp-verizon (replace country code and ISP to your desire) when authenticating.

Note: When targeting an ISP make sure you do not include any spaces and we wildcard match the result to right comast* (comcas matches comcast, comca matches comcast, etc)

Username username-country- US-isp-Verizon
*Note that all spaces in the name must be removed for it to match
FireFox Example 
cURL Example curl -x premium.residential.proxyrack.net:10000 \
-U username-country-US-isp-Verizon    http://example.com

How to get a list of countries, cities and ISPs

Country List

You can find the country list in the API Generator in your product dashboard. This will give you the country code for each location. 

We also have an API end point you can use to get these more quickly which is explained below.

You can also get this through our API URL which will give you an output of all the available country location codes

You can then see which cities are available for targeting by requesting the following URL through the proxy and simply replacing the country code as you need to
