What is IP Rotation?
IP rotation refers to rotating or changing IP (Internet Protocol)
addresses of our servers at random intervals. Instead of having a single
outgoing IP address on internet-facing daemons, services or servers, we
change IP addresses so we are not bound to a single location.
We deploy different IP rotating strategies in our IP∞ platform (as per client requirements):
- Pre-configured IPs: IP rotation takes place at 1 minute
intervals. Every minute, your IP address will change to a different one.
Setup is automatic, client has no control.
- Random IPs: Each connection initiated by the client is assigned a randomly rotating IP. Setup
is automatic, client has no control.
- Burst IPs: IP addresses are rotated per specified
number of hits, usually 10. If you initiated 10 connections, your 11th will
be from a different IP. This is perfect option for bursts of hits at short
intervals. Say you want to dispatch 10,000 hits in a second, this option
would take care of it where they all would go out from the same IP in
pre-configured IP option. Setup is automatic, client has no control.
- Specific IPs: Client can choose which IP address he
wants to use for the outgoing connection by specifying it in his
software. For example, connection to x5.net:55/10.10.10.10 will send out
your connection from IP address 10.10.10.10
Our proprietary IP rotation infrastructure provides the basis for our
Enterprise Data Acquisition Backend.
