Hosting Provider, Data Center or Content Delivery Network. Since hosting providers and data centers can serve to provide anonymity, the Anonymous IP database flags IP addresses associated with them.


Public Proxies. These are services which make connection requests on a user’s behalf. Proxy server software can be configured by the administrator to listen on some specified port. These differ from VPNs in that the proxies usually have limited functions compare to VPNs.


Web Proxies. These are web services which make web requests on a user’s behalf. These differ from VPNs or Public Proxies in that they are simple web-based proxies rather than operating at the IP address and other ports level.


Search Engine Robots. These are services which perform crawling or scraping to a website, such as, the search engine spider or bots engine.


Residential proxies. These services offer users proxy connections through residential ISP with or without consents of peers to share their idle resources.


Consumer Privacy Network: These services ensure encrypted traffic from the user’s browser by routing internet requests through relays, concealing the IP address, location, and browsing activity.


Enterprise Private Network: Services like SASE or SD-WAN combine network security functions with wide-area networking (WAN) capabilities to meet the secure remote access needs of organizations.
