Unmetered Residential 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 Unmetered Residential service with a few simple tweaks to your username.
Want to watch a video walkthrough instead? This YouTube video will walk you through geo-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)
|cURL Example||“curl -x premium.residential.proxyrack.net:10000 -U username-country-HK http://example.com”|
- France: username-country-FR
- United States: username-country-US
City TargetingYou 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|
|cURL Example||“curl -x premium.residential.proxyrack.net:10000 -U username-country-US-city-NewYork http://example.com”|
- Paris: username-country-FR-city-Paris
- London: username-country-GB-city-London
ISP TargetingWith 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|
|cURL Example||curl -x premium.residential.proxyrack.net:10000 -U username-country-US-isp-Verizon http://example.com|
