Purchase and subscription information

Below you will find everything you need to know about our mobile proxy plans.

Per gigabyte of traffic

You pay only when you use 1 GB of traffic, meaning you are charged when you use a gigabyte and it is on your balance. The IP address changes every 10-15 seconds.

For a modem

You get a dedicated modem for rent and can change your IP whenever you want.

Self-service

The self-service function (quick ordering) is available for the Pay as You Go and Regular Mobile Proxy tariff plans. Go to our dashboard and register an account to enable these options.

To subscribe to any of our plans, you will first need to complete the KYC check and create your first user (see the instructions for creating a user below).

Using mobile proxies

Single sign-on and callback options

Our mobile proxy servers have IP addresses assigned to users by their mobile operators. These IP addresses connect to the proxy network via mobile devices around the world on a country-by-country basis.

A single reverse connection entry provides a convenient way to connect with specific settings. However, if you need even more flexibility to use our global infrastructure, you can use other connection methods. See the next section to learn more.

Connect via a single loopback input using this proxy port:

'de-1.stableproxy.com:11001'

Session management

  • The session management feature allows you to use the same proxy server for subsequent requests. Let's take a look at how it works:
  • The sessid parameter allows you to keep the same proxy server IP address for all subsequent requests;
  • Our system will keep the same IP address associated with your session ID as long as there is any activity;
  • The default session time is 10 minutes. After that, the IP automatically changes to a new one;
  • When you stop sending requests or the IP address is no longer available, the system will assign a new IP after 60 seconds;
  • The sesstime parameter allows you to set your own session time up to 30 minutes. If you use the session time parameter, the session does not expire after 60 seconds of inactivity.

Response codes

400 Bad Request

The proxy server may return this error code if the request does not specify a host to connect to or if a common error occurred while parsing the HTTP request. Make sure that you have formed the request correctly, including the URL, and try again.

407 Proxy Authentication Required

The request contains no proxy authentication information, or the username or password is incorrect. Add the Proxy-Authorisation header to the request, make sure that the username and password are correct, and try again.

500 Internal Server Error

The proxy server encountered an internal error. Please try again later.

502 Bad Gateway

The proxy server received an invalid response from the upstream server. Please retry the request.

A 502 response code means that the IP address assigned to your session ID is no longer available. If you encounter this error, there are two ways to work around it. The first is to wait one minute for the system to automatically assign a new IP address to your session ID. The second way is to switch to a new session ID (i.e. change the sessid parameter) - this way you will get a new IP address.

522 Timeout

The proxy server did not receive a response from the upstream server in time. Please retry the request.

525 No Exit Found

A non-standard HTTP status code means that the proxy could not find an exit node that satisfies the request. Change the request filtering settings or try again later.

Integrations

We have also documented some integrations with popular third-party tools:
