Sticky vs Rotating

In ASocks we use rotating proxy, but we are often asked: what is the difference between sticky and rotating proxies.

In a sticky session, you will have the same IP address right throughout the session that you’re connected to the Internet. So each time you make a new request, your IP address will not change and will have the same proxy.

Unlike the sticky sessions, which assign one static IP for the entire session, the rotating proxies provide access to a whole pool of IP addresses. Therefore rotating proxies change at a random or fixed interval. Some of the significant benefits of rotating proxies are that since the IP addresses originate from different Geo locations that are not related to one another, it gives a greater level of anonymity and security when browsing the web.
