How to connect to HTTP Proxy Service

All plans have complimentary HTTP Proxy included. HTTP Proxy is used to quickly circumvent blocks or quickly anonymize your connection by acting as a gateway between you and the internet, sending all of your web requests to your slot first before going to the site.

If you need to anonymize and encrypt your connection completely, you may look into our VPN service instead.

This guide shows you how to use the HTTP proxy by using a browser extension to set and switch proxy servers quickly.

Changing your HTTP Proxy Password

Before logging into your HTTP Proxy, you should first set your own HTTP Proxy password.

  • Login to your User Control Panel and log in with the credentials you set and Press Connect
  • Go to the Connect tab and click on Change password beside HTTP proxy access.
  • Set your Password to anything you wish. We recommend using a unique password that you do not use in any of your existing accounts and has the following:
    • At least 12 characters
    • An uppercase letter
    • A lowercase letter
    • At least 1 number
    • At least 1 symbol
  • When you're done, click Confirm change
  • A popup saying Password successfully changed should appear on the lower right corner of the page, signifying that the Password is set successfully.

Installing and Setting Up Proxy SwitchyOmega

There are many software/extensions to use the HTTP proxy. Here, we'll be using Proxy SwitchyOmega. This extension allows you to switch your HTTP proxy settings on the fly.

  • Download and install the extension to your browser

  • Once installed, a new tab opens up. Click Skip Guide to close the welcome window.

  • You may also rename the default name from proxy to whatever name you desire by clicking Rename on the top left corner of the page.

  • Once that's entered, click the green apply changes to save your proxy.

Using the HTTP Proxy

  • To use the proxy, click the Proxy SwitchyOmega icon and select your set proxy.

  • After that, enter a website in the address bar and press Enter.
  • Upon entering, a login popup appears. Enter your set HTTP Proxy credentials to proceed.
