Types of  HTTP proxies

HTTP proxy servers have several anonymity levels.That may hides the original users’ IP address and other details from the remote server.  It depends on purposes, which a proxy is used for.Regarding HTTP proxies, there are 3 types.

1. Transparent.

these proxies are not anonymous. They, first, let a web server know that there is used a proxy server and, secondly, “give away” an IP-address of a client. The task of such proxies, as a rule, is information caching and/or support of Internet access for several computers via single connection.

2. Anonymous (hides your IP but identifies itself as a proxy)

these proxy servers let a remote computer (web-server) know, that there is used a proxy, however, they do not pass an IP-address of a client.

3. High Anonymous (hides your IP and doesn’t identify itself as a proxy)

they do not send your IP-address to a remote computer. Also, they do not inform that there is used any proxy server! So, a web-server “thinks” that it works directly with a client.So private proxy service use this type of proxies.
