Limeproxies vs SharedProxies

Choosing a datacenter proxy provider is an important business decision that should be given considerable time and effort. You can’t just sign up with the first proxy provider you see on the internet. There has to be intensive research and testing involved before finally coming to a decision. When doing your research, you should also know what to look for so it’s important to ask these questions:

  • Do I really need all the features included in the package?
  • Is the provider reliable?
  • Will I get my money back if things don't work out?
  • Is there someone I can talk to in easily if I encounter technical issues?

There may be more questions you can ask, depending on your business needs, such as a specific server location you are looking for, but these are the most basic ones. To better help you in this crucial decision, we have compiled a side by side comp[a comparison between Limeproxies and SharedProxies in the table below:

All these features are very important to every proxy user, no matter the use case. Find out more about them below:

Virgin Proxies

When we talk about virgin proxies, we are referring to proxies that haven’t been used by anyone before. You will be its first user, giving you these advantages:

Clean: With virgin proxies, there’s no chance that some website had blocked them before since there is no previous owner.

More bypass capability: Virgin proxies allow you to bypass websites with very strict security.

Dedicated IP addresses

When accessing data intensive applications that require you to connect to a proxy server, you’re better off using dedicated proxy IP addresses rather than shared proxies. This is to ensure that the bandwidth and all other resources are exclusively yours to use.

2-Day Free Trial and Money Back Guarantee

If you want to have a clear picture of how Limeproxies can help you, you can use our proxy service for free for two days. We offer this free trial because we understand the importance of testing a software or digital product before committing to a long-term subscription.

On top of this, we also have a refund policy that allows you to get your money back if you decide to cancel your subscription within three days from the day you signed up. That’s how confident we are with our features and service. Read our refund policy here.

Username and IP based Authentication

Most social media platforms are server-based for security purposes. This means that they don’t give out the IP addresses, making IP-based authentication practically useless. With Limeproxies, you can perform all your social media activities and use other ser-based platforms without missing a beat since we also offer username-based authentication. You only need the username and password of your proxy in order to use the platform or application.

Of course, we also offer IP-based authentication because we believe in giving our clients the flexibility they need to perform their functions.


SOCKS makes a proxy an all-around service as it enables you to process any type of protocols, programs, or traffic. Compared to HTTP which only supports websites that have HTTP, SOCKS can work on any website. Aside from this, SOCKS also provides an additional layer of security.

Proxies from Different Locations

SharedProxies has servers in five countries, whereas Limeproxies servers are present in more than 22 countries. This gives you more choices and flexibility in terms of unblocking geo locations and IP address choices. You can access the list of locations here.
