What is a proxy server?

A proxy server serves as a link between your computer and the rest of the internet. When you surf the internet with your browser, you usually connect directly to the website you’re visiting. Proxies act as intermediaries between you and websites.

When you use an online proxy, your browser first establishes a connection with the proxy, which then forwards your traffic to the website you’re visiting. Proxy servers are also known as “forward proxies” because of this. An internet proxy will also receive the response from the website and return it to you.

The term “proxy” is commonly used to describe someone who is authorized to act on your behalf, such as voting in a meeting that you are unable to attend. A proxy server performs the same function, but over the internet. Instead of you communicating directly with the websites you visit, a proxy manages the relationship on your behalf.

Types or anonymity levels of proxy servers

Transparent proxies

Because a transparent proxy sends your real IP address in the HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR header, a website that determines your remote address as well as checks for specific proxy headers will still know your real IP address.
The HTTP VIA header is also sent, indicating that a proxy server is being used.

Anonymous proxies

In the HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR header, an anonymous proxy does not send your real IP address; instead, it submits the proxy’s IP address or is left blank. As with a transparent proxy, the HTTP_VIA header is sent, revealing that you are using a proxy server.

High anonymity or elite proxies

Only the REMOTE_ADDR header is sent by an elite proxy; all other headers are blank or empty, making you appear to be a regular internet user who isn’t using a proxy at all.
