Often times, many contents are geo-restricted on the internet for legal or copyright issues that prevent users in the restricted locations from viewing the contents. Again, sometimes some services are offered to specific locations and can be accessed only by the inhabitants of the city or country. But sometimes these restrictions are not applicable and needs to be overridden. Proxies come in handy in such cases. By using a proxy, you can pretend to be located in an entirely different location and not in the geo-restricted location. So, you can easily access the service or the content. Nowadays many proxy services are in operation among which IPLease is a respectable name.

compare with different price plan

IPLease offers specialized packages for Social Media, SEO, Shopping, Classified Ads, Ticketing, and Gaming. Their proxies come with virgin IPs which are not previously used so there’s almost no possibility of banned IPs. All of their plans have unlimited bandwidth as well.

We liked the competitive pricing plans offered by IPLease. You can buy a single proxy for as low as $2.10 (SEO Proxy) which varies from package to package. They have varying pricing policy for different packages which you can find below.

Locations of proxy servers

Location of IPLease proxy servers

We were not particularly impressed to find out that IPLease offers such a short list of proxy locations. Due to fewer locations, IPLease is expected to have much higher latency while connecting to servers located far from their proxy servers. The fewer options to choose from also means that you may not find the exact proxy location you’re looking for. So far, they have proxy servers only in the USA and Europe.

IPLease has proxy servers in Miami, Los Angeles, Dallas, New York, Seattle, San Jose and Chicago in the USA and in London and Paris in Europe. In our opinion, if the sites you will be using do not have servers near these locations, you might not be able to get a flawless browsing experience.

Ping Test & Proxy Speed Test

We purchased 10 private proxies from IPlease to perform our tests. We performed three standalone tests on the proxies to find out how suitable the service is for general usage.

Ping Test:

The first test we performed was to test the latency using whoer.net to check the ping of the proxies in different locations. The result is satisfactory as the ping is somewhat on the positive side. If the site you are visiting has a server near the proxy server, it’ll ensure a very fast connection with low ping. This is evident from our test results. The proxy locations that were nearer to the test locations had a significantly lower ping which is suitable for most of the businesses. You can see the test results below

Speed Test:

IPLease boasts a network connection of 1 Gbps for each proxy. To test that out, we performed a speed test using fast.com which uses the Netflix server to test the connection speed. According to the test site, our internet connection speed is 360 Mbps for downloading and 180 Mbps for uploading. After configuring proxies from IPLease, we found the new speed test to be similar. Since our internet connection itself was not 1 Gbps, we cannot confirm whether the proxies indeed have the speed of 1 Gbps. Still, the fact that the proxy did not cause bottleneck is quite remarkable.

GEOlocation Test / ISP Test

IPLease lets you choose whether you want to buy proxies located in the only USA or Europe or in both regions. However, it doesn’t let you choose particular cities/states while choosing so.

In the list of your proxies provided by IPLease in the control panel, you can find the location of the proxy IPs. We performed a location test to verify whether the locations claimed by IPLease are accurate. The results came out too good since all of the locations provided by IPLease is also confirmed by two separate IP location verifier.

Here is the geolocation test of IPLease that we performed.

Features of IPLease.io

Proxy Refresh

IPLease offers on-demand proxy refreshing for their packages once per month, starting from second billing month. The request to refresh proxies can be made from the control panel, and the customer support will approve the change.

IPLease Proxy Change Request

Dual authentication method

IPLease lets users choose either IP authorization or username/password authorization for proxy authorization. This can be done easily from the control panel. While some people prefer IP authorization over username/password authorization due to simplicity, many people find the latter to be more secure.

3-days refund policy

IPLease does not have a trial proxy policy and suggests users to buy a single proxy to trial with that. However, they have a 3-days refund policy that will be helpful if you find the proxies to be not suitable for your specific work. Please verify beforehand whether the sites you wish to visit are not blocked by IPLease.

Prompt customer support

IPLease has an active customer support. Their live chat is open 24 hours a day and every day of the year. They are very quick in replying as well and are determined to solve any issues the customer is facing.

IPLease  API

IPLease has detailed documentation on how to configure and use their API in your application to automate many tasks such as retrieve proxies, setup authorization method, request IP refresh etc.

US and EU Locations

IPLease has proxy servers in both the USA and in Europe. While this was impressive some many years back, we feel that they need to add much more locations to their fleet of proxy servers.

Server Status

On their website, IPLease has a one liner notice whether any server is currently out of service. This makes sure you don’t need to stress over thinking your IP was blocked when in reality the server was down just for some moments. What would’ve been better was if they showed the current network status for all of their servers.

Specialized packages

IPLease offers a myriad of different packages dedicated for specific purposes. This is very useful if you are purchasing proxies for a single purpose. They offer different packages for shopping/sneakers, social media, SEO, classified ads, ticketing, gaming etc. However, we couldn’t find an all-purpose proxy package which can be used for any cases. And even some of the specialized packages have restricted websites/usage.

How to use

Signing Up

We were particularly satisfied with the sign-up process of IPLease. They have a very informative website along with a very intuitive user interface. You can visit the specific proxy package directly from the homepage and buy instantly from the package page.

On the buying page, you will be given the option to change the selected proxy package if you need. You can also choose the geographic region you want the proxies in. However, one thing that is really troubling is, they allow only a single website usage for the specialized package. So when selecting Facebook in the social media proxies, you’ll get the best results only on Facebook and not on other websites.

IPLease accepts several modes of payment, namely Credit Card, Paypal, and Bitcoin.

Buying IPLease Proxies

How to install/use theIPLease Proxies

IPLease allows the user to choose either IP based authentication or username authentication from the control panel. There’s no need to contact support if you want to change from one method to other.

How to authorize IPs

To authorize the IPs you want to use the proxies from, simply log in to your control panel and navigate to Authentication tab and then select IP Authorization. You can find your IP in the IP Authorization window below. From there you can type in your IP and give it a name for future reference. You can authorize up to 5 IPs by default and if you need more than that, you’ll need to contact support.

Whether you choose IP authorization or Username authorization, you’ll have to configure the browser or other applications. To do this, navigate to the settings section of the application and look for Network Settings or similar titles. Add your proxy IP and port number.

If you have IP authentication enabled, you won’t need to input username and password in the configuration panel. But if not, you’ll need to provide that as well. Each application can have its own proxy configurations, so you can set that individually.

If you need same proxy settings for the whole system, you can also set the system proxy, which is used by all applications on your computer. You can do so by going to the control panel. Proxy can also be used in smartphones. The option to configure the proxies can be found on the settings panel of your Android/iPohne, under Wifi settings.

 

Ours Verdict

IPLease is an emerging proxy service that seems promising with their user-oriented services. We liked their specialized packages which are especially beneficial for businesses. IPLease has a competitive pricing in this ever growing market.

 

But they still have many places where they should focus on to provide an even better service. We’d recommend IPLease for businesses that require visiting specific websites.
