Finding a Decent Proxy Web Host

After a bit of searching around, I finally found a web host that specifically catered to proxy based websites. They are a relatively small web host, but that is due to the fact that they only accept proxy websites. Additionally, they only host php proxies because cgi proxy are simply just too intensive on servers. Cloak Host is an excellent web host that lets little proxy websites get into the larger market. Not many people can start off a proxy website or websites by simply paying for a dedicated server, so Cloak Host hosts only for small and middle sized proxy websites. There are a few other similar proxy web hosts as plausible options, but Cloak Host provided me with the best amount of bandwidth for my money. If you are considering attempting to run a proxy website on another web host (one that isn’t specifically for proxies), then you really ought to ask this host prior to signing up, if they will drop you because of your cpu use as proxies are quite resource intensive in this area.  Make sure that you: research a variety of web hosts, ask questions, get the answers that you need, read the TOS (Terms of Service), and then sign up for a web host that meets your needs.

  1. Very difficult indeed..


  2. DreamHost will disable proxy scripts that are using excessive server resources; in my experience, this effectively means that any proxy with over ~200 unique visitors per day will be disabled.
