Default VPS rules

I've heard talk about how it's not safe to use an http proxy. Just wanted to clarify, don't use an anonymous proxy that everybody can use, create your own. For under $15 a month a set up a VPS with a squid anonymous proxy server with 10 additional Ip addresses. That is 11 new eBay accounts. Going strong for months now, two have 500 limit, 5 have a 50 item limit, 1 25 limit, and 3 have a 10 item limit. None got flagged and they all sell like crazy. best solution I can imagine. Each account has a static ip that never changes and super easy to use. The initial setup for a squid anonymous proxy server takes about an hour or so. If someone would like a how to guide, I may write one up soon..

Come back and say all is going OK in 2 years and you might be onto something but it's still a risky setup because of the squid anonymous poxy server. is it a new style to not space posts to make it naffing hard to naffin read?

Where are you getting the public IPs to use though? And that VPS has to be in Linux, CentosOS or Ubuntu so not many people are comfortable using it

I think you missed the point I was making. Don't use public IPs. The squid proxy server is set up on my own VPS server, the IPs are not used by anyone else. Yes it's setup up very easily on a centOS setup. Very cheap fast and reliable. Totally anonymous, no proxy is detected if it's set up correctly.

Exactly. Squid is a proxy server that runs on any Linux distribution. A Linux VPS costs about 3$ a month and each additional IP address is another 1$.

I am not techy and I barely follow this conversation but grasp the ideas.

I have looked at the blocked.com website but.....what is exactly used for and why do you have to "get by" it?

It's a software that detects and blocks proxy connections basically. So the key is using a proxy anonymously and that it doesn't look like a proxy by the blocked.com software. Which from what the OP states it is what he's doing.

What I was asking and wondering is the IPs used are from the same company I'm guessing and if they are dedicated and NOT from a abused company it should be fine. It's essentially the same as getting multiple VPN accounts with each Dedicated IP, just much cheaper as the OP outlined.

I was understanding that it was essentially creating your own VPN service.

Good comment but remember most vps sellers are really resellers so the vps company does not matter the actual provider does.

Yes very good point, there are actually only a few VPS providers, but many websites. So just because a website is not at the top of Google it doesn't mean it hasn't been abused, and their IPs are all from their IP range and could easily been used before. Just because an IP is dedicated to you now doesn't mean it wasn't dedicated for someone else before. Always risks that need to be taken into account.

How does one ever know for sure? But they are Fresh IP addresses owned by the VPS domain, nobody is using them now except me.. But sure any IP address anywhere could have been used at some point by a seller you can never know 100% sure. But it's safer than a VPN or using a dongle I would say. Because it's IPs that nobody can ever use but me.
