In the realm of proxy sessions, we offer two distinct types of rotation: 'Sticky' and 'Randomize'. Each type serves a different purpose, catering to the varying needs of our users.


This option allows you to maintain a consistent proxy for the duration of your session. With sticky sessions, you can configure a 'lifetime' parameter, which determines how long the same proxy will be used before it switches to a new one. This is particularly useful for tasks that require a sustained connection to the same IP address, such as maintaining a consistent session while accessing web resources that have session-based authentication or tracking.

  1. The _session- key instructs our routing system to either create or resolve a unique session for the connection. The value assigned to this key must be a random alphanumeric string, precisely 8 characters in length. This ensures the uniqueness and integrity of the session.

  2. The _lifetime- key directs the router regarding the duration for which the session remains valid. The minimum duration is set at 1 second, and the maximum extends to 7 days. It is crucial to note the format here: only one unit of time can be specified. This parameter plays a pivotal role in defining the operational span of a sticky session, balancing between session stability and security needs.



Randomize sessions provide a new proxy with each request. This means that every time you make a request, it comes from a different IP address. This approach is ideal for tasks that require a high level of anonymity and reduced traceability, such as web scraping or accessing content without revealing a consistent identity.

To use this type of rotation, you don't need to add anything to the proxy string.
